[SOLVED] Aml-vnc addon


#1

Hi all,
I’m completely new with coreelec.
I have two htpc and a rpi 3 running libreelec.
Now I’ve buy 3 magicsee n5 box.
I’m testing the first one, installation of coreelec was really easy but I’m not able to connect to aml-vnc.
I’ve installed the addon:
ADDON: service.aml-vnc v9.0.100 installed
But I’m not able to connect. And I have no proccess listening on port 5900.

CoreELEC-HC:~/.kodi/temp # netstat -tulpn |grep 5900
CoreELEC-HC:~/.kodi/temp #

Am I missing something here ?


#2

In the CoreELEC add-on there are some settings for firewall, maybe you need to change those.


#3

I’ve got the same problem with CE (8.95.7) and VNC add-on. Nothing in netstat and the firewall is OFF.


#4

There are two VNC addons in the “Services” section:

  • aml-vnc (9.0.3)
  • Amlogic VNC (9.0.100)

Only the first one works for me.


#5

I only have “Amlogic VNC (9.0.100)”. Yes, did a search and that was the only one found.


#6

It seems, this version isn’t included in the stable repo.
Try this one from the nightly repo:
https://relkai.coreelec.org/?dir=addons/9.0/Amlogic/arm/service.system.aml-vnc


#7

That version fails to install. Log shows:

11:47:32.013 T:3894403888 ERROR: Failed to unpack archive ’
zip://%2fstorage%2f.kodi%2ftemp%2fservice.system.aml-vnc-9.0.3.zip/service.system.aml-vnc/’ to ‘/storage/.kodi/addons/temp/e3052d55-8186-424d-8747-103f18b5bb1d’

EDIT: Downloaded it again and it installed and now working. Mouse however does not work but keyboard does.


#8

Mouse is not supported by this addon.


#9

Fair enough, thank you.


#10

Thank you very much it works like that!


#11

“Amlogic VNC” has been fixed in the repository, thanks for reporting it.


#12

I’m noticing the colors are not correct when using VNC. They look like this, when they should look like this one. .

Happens with both versions of VNC.


#13

afaik the colors are 16bit when using vnc and you can’t expect a full TV experience.
It’s only meant for quick and dirty management of your device.

Greetings,

In my opinion, even in this state, it is extremely useful.
I think it’s necessary to have a default interface (like web-interface). This is really a very useful VNC addon.

Yours truly…
