#184

I’ve mainly reverted these improvements for now; as they need some further testing and caused some chapter skipping at random intervals.


#185

Thanks. I’ll remove these.

#188

Hoping that this is in the right place. I’m currently using the latest build from this topic on my Vero 4K as it’s as close as I can get to the Milhouse builds for the Pi and it saves me having to have multiple databases.

I’m experiencing issues with Live TV (only appears to affect Live TV that I’ve noticed thus far). I am using TVHeadend which is running on an external Ubuntu server.

When watching any Freeview channels (either HD or SD) I seem to have some stuttering video. If I record the programme and watch it back the stuttering is not present. Audio is fine at all times.

A debug log can be found here: https://paste.osmc.tv/migamuyipi

I’ve tried the settings found here: 25Hz content playing back at 50Hz but that didn’t seem to help.

The “Sync playback to display” setting and turning off hardware acceleration both seemingly had no effect.

Everything other than Live TV seems to be playing fine.

Any help/thoughts would be much appreciated.


#189

There have been quite a few changes in the last week or two. The main change is that the nightlies are now being built on Debian stretch. In order to run the nightlies you will first need to upgrade the OS to stretch.

Make sure you have a backup. Once the upgrade starts there is no going back.

Once the upgrade has been completed you will need to also complete the following:

Edit

sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list

The Stretch upgrade should have already commented out (Make sure this is the case)

# deb http://download.osmc.tv/dev/gmc-18 ./

Then add

deb http://download.osmc.tv/dev/gmc-18 gmc-18 main

Save and exit file.

Import gpg certificate:

wget -qO - http://download.osmc.tv/dev/gmc-18/gpg.key | sudo apt-key add -

Finally run update and dist-upgrade to install latest nightly.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

#192

Can’t seem to connect to my database server anymore (mariadb 5), but no movies appear and changing content type of a folder followed by refreshing the path does not start a scan.

libmariadbclient18 is installed and the database reachable

“MySQL library requested but MySQL support is not compiled in. Falling back to sql”

Oh and the netflix addon is also not working, but different topic :wink:


#193
22:29:32.010 T:4006347520   ERROR: MySQL library requested but MySQL support is not compiled in. Falling back to sqlite3.
22:29:32.011 T:4006347520   ERROR: Unable to create new database

Hmm, I’ll have a look into this.

On the Netflix issue I think its due to the python dependencies not being installed. Will also check this out.


#194

Can you try this to get the dependencies installed for Netflix:

sudo apt-get install python-pip python-dev build-essential
pip install setuptools 
pip install wheel 
pip install pycryptodomex

#195

We will need to work out the best way to distribute these with Kodi. Installing build-essential for this is quite ugly; although perfectly acceptable for testing in this case.


#196

Mysql issue should be fixed in the next nightly.


#197

I followed your instructions, tried to install via repository or directly the latest release zip file 0.12.7 and the error “Installation failed” persist.

EDIT: Turns out that a previous install via the repo created a file at /home/osmc/.kodi/addons/plugin.video.netflix instead of a dir. I removed that file and copied the temp folder over by hand:

Now the plugin starts, I can log in, but nothing plays. But I guess at this point this is more a plugin or widvine error:

  2. Netflix still won’t work, widevine maybe the problem

#201

Updated my system to Debian Stretch as i hoped it will resolve my problem with DTS-HD-HRA steams, but it doesn’t so i updated the system to kodi 18.

Still the same problem, no audio with DTS-HD-HRA movies.

My skin didn’t work anymore so i fixed this problem. Now the skin is working perfectly again.

For now i didn’t get amazon addon to run (i always get the message that i didn’t bought the product) ok, no problem for now…

At the moment i didn’t recorgnize any improvements. All is working for now but nothing works better or worser.

No really benefits with kodi 18 for now i can see.

PS: the default osmc skin is also not working with kodi 18. you can simply fix this problem by setting the gui version in the addon.xml from 5.12 to 5.13. reboot after that and reenable the skin because it is disabled. than it will work again.
