Re: Kodi Matrix 19.1 slow playback of HD videos

I was the previous maintainer of Kodi packages available on raspberrypi foundation repo. Currently I am not maintaining the packages mainly because I still use RPi 3s for Kodi and Kodi 19 does not support H265 HW video decoding on these. I am sorry but I have no plans on providing Kodi 19 builds exc...

Is in Kodi a way to use and control system volume instead of Kodi volume?
No. That's the same on all OSs.

Yes, RPi 3 cannot do 1080p, not even the RPi 4. It is software decoded.

Re: [Guide] Kodi on Raspberry Pi OS / Raspbian Buster

No, the patches google added are only used in ChromeOS, AFAIK. So, there is no plans for you to remove the old Debian patches and include the new one needed for glibc ? Only way is to compile glibc with that patches, include it in Kodi packages and link Kodi to use it instead of the system wide one?

Re: [Guide] Kodi on Raspberry Pi OS / Raspbian Buster

Thanks for the advice. So if I understood currectly, I need a new version of glibc to recompile Kodi and kodi-inpustream-adaptive also needs to be updated then. Is the new/patched glibc already available on stable repo? I'm a bit uneasy with patching glibc system-wide with changes that aren't upstr...

Hi Rascas, I see you maintain the kodi package for ARM debian. You may be interested in upcoming Widevine blob changes that will break playback on ARM (probably in 5-6 days from now) You can read here: https://github.com/raspberrypi/Raspberry-Pi-OS-64bit/issues/11#issuecomment-838118259 & here ...

If you want to compile Kodi 19 for the RPi, you shouldn't grab the debian tarballs, it doesn't matter if it is from stable, testing or unstable. That is because Debian ARM Kodi, is a generic version, not optimized for any platform, so it doesn't support Hardware video decoding and other stuff. It i...

To compile Kodi by yourself you shouldn't need to backport anything but you will probably need to compile also libcec at least if you want everything to work. You also need to compile the binary addons if you use any of them. It should be easier to compile than the previous versions. Performance on ...
