I keep running into problems troubleshooting Kodi on my CoreElec 9.2.2, on Odroid N2- 4GB. I know that CoreElec is a stripped down OS ( similar to LibreElec I understand ), but is the Kodi on it actually the real Kodi app, or somehow an embedded, and stripped down version? In researching solutions I keep finding menu items missing or different. I can’t locate a Kodi version number in the System Info… unable to find the “allow third party reposistories”, etc. If Kodi is embedded, is there a way to uninstall and install the full version?
Currently, I’m trying to add DVD iso’s to the library. It can play them, but nothing seems to scan them into the library itself.
I spent a couple of hours today, trying to install Netflix… it fails, asking for xbmc.python v.3.0 … don’t see it in any of the standard repos … YouTube failing too. Ideas?
Thanks for that. I am finding, though, that sometimes instructions will say something like “in Kodi 18.6 do the following”, so it’s confusing to find instructions, as I might be using a different version. If I don’t see a menu option “allow third party repos”, does that mean they aren’t allowed, or am I just missing it?
I don’t think Youtube works in Kodi anymore whether full version or not, something to do with API keys. There are videos, ironically on Youtube itself, which show a workaround but it looks complicated.
While I’m here: Any reason the addon ‘opensubtitiles’ doesn’t work anymore? I noticed it seems to require a password recently. If it’s just a case of signing up to get a password that’s fine for those that really require subs, i.e. The deaf and hard of hearing.
Thanks to everyone for your help. I spent a couple of hours trying to get the API setup correctly. I’ll try again tonight. Some good information in your replies. For the DVD iso… after creating some .nfo files ( a new thing for me ) they showed up. Every day, I learn something new.
