[TESTING] Kodi 18 (Leia) builds for Raspberry Pi


#1238

Hi all!
I guess I should post the problem here since it concerns this build.
I installed latest Amazon Prime Video addon from repository.sandmann79

I’m using input stream
I’m getting the following error

19:07:38.745 T:1763701488   ERROR: [Amazon VOD] Unable to find the main primevideo.com navigation section

Best would be to raise a issue with the addon developer.

Unable to find the main primevideo.com navigation section

Looks like it could be caused by a change at Amazon


#1240

found a solution.
you have to log into primevideo.com and change your location. After that it works ok.
Stupid of me.

Hi
Just, all my tests on Leia for the OSMC part are ok for me, I would have wanted to test the retrogaming part, but I do not really have any indication to help me put this up on Leia, you would have a link or an explanatory to provide me?
thx

Here is a short howto to start roms in retroplayer in Leia:

First of all, you got to add a source to your roms folder

Enter Games
Add games…

Browse to your roms folder

After that you need to install the emulators.

Back to main menu
Select settings
Add-on browser
My add-ons
Game add-ons
Emulators

Enable those you want, at the moment of typing
this mini howto i only had a few running, the rest
sadfaces or just black screen.

These i got workingon a pi2, haven’t tested Snes9x on vero4k yet:
mGBA
QuickNES
Genesis Plus GX
Snes9x

To start a game, navigate in your games source(s) and click the game you want to start


#1243

Is there a way to have the ROM folder located on a network drive ?


#1244

It’s like any other source in Kodi, just navigate to your rom folder(network or local) and add as source. I’ve used a folder on a samba shared drive as my roms folder, just a little time consuming when the drive spins down.


#1245

Really?
I have a bunch of scumm datafiles, but these were never found in my network shares. I can add them easily from scummvm (PC, Laptop, not kodi) directly.


#1246

I search broken again…i’ve been getting error msg like this:

WARNING: CGUIMediaWindow::OnMessage - updating in progress
ERROR: GetDirectory - Error getting plugin://plugin.audio.pandoraslim/
ERROR: CGUIMediaWindow::GetDirectory(plugin://plugin.audio.pandoraslim/) failed

everytime i search something in most addons. Its the same 1st line and then the name of the addon after in the other 2

Edit:… Yup something changed in the build…most addons dont work properly now when it comes to search, i reinstalled everything, still getting the same error.


#1247

In order to get scummvm to “work” , you need a .scummvm file for each game, containing the unique gameid for the game. For the freeware version of “Beneath a Steel Sky”, you need to create a text file for the game, containing the unique game id. whch in this caase is “sky”.

There is a repository of .scummvm files here on github:

I’ve downloaded the file for the game saved it in the game folder, browsed my way to the file and started it, but still sadface.

Hi all,

I have been using Leia for a few days and been having a nightmare when playing music that is stored locally, at the beginning and end of every song there would be crackle, drop out, stuttering. Updated this morning and up to now all seems well.

I also noticed a problem that when rebooting the media center it would take upto 15 minutes to connect to the wireless network, but if I went into the wireless setting and forced it to connect it would work straight away. So far so good with the new update regarding this issue.

Once I am fully convinced the issue with the music player is sorted I am going to check Netflix and Amazon, never had them working properly since I installed Leia. Errors in Netflix that tell me to check the log and Amazon tries to play a show but nothing appears on the screen.

This garden leave from work is being out too good use.

Netflix, amazon and YouTube seem to be not working, I watched. Program on the bbc I player earlier and had no problems.
Local playback of music seems to be working ok.

#1251

It’s a inputstream.adaptive issue. Fix will be in the next build.


#1252

Thanks, got a step further. Now the games are identified, but i am not allowed to start from an nfs folder. Mounting the nfs-folder on os level worked, but i am getting a sadface on every single file i tried.

So, my guess is, scummvm is not working at all.


#1253

Thanks for that… any ideas on when the next build is due and will it be an update for the addon or some comandline witchcraft.


#1254

Should hopefully be today sometime barring any build failures. It will just be a mediacenter-osmc upgrade which will install the latest addon
