    Is CinemaVision still being developed?

    I think most people would be very happy if any further development, added features and such were put on hold but the CV itself in it's current form would get the required bump to continue working with the latest versions of Kodi. This and 1 other addon that is seemingly simple yet cause a huge silly argument with "Team Kodi" are the reasons I've not upgraded.
  5. It's that time again. After unleashing Kodi v18 Leia into the wild, it's time to give the upcoming Kodi 19 a codename. As usual, our users suggested a myriad of names, most right up our alley, some less... erm... "appropriate". After compiling suggestions from the community thread, Facebook and Twitter, we arrived at the top 10 list: Magneto Mars Marvel Marvin Matrix Megatron Merlin Metropolis Mordor Morpheus At first glance it seems a consensual list. Nothing out of the ordinary and, with the possible exception of "Mars", all science fiction related. Next, we needed to decide what to do: follow the users' top suggestion as we've done in the past? Have team members vote to decide the name? Or maybe pick a completely different codename for Kodi v19 – Kodi "Muppet", maybe? With so many great suggestions, we decided a team vote was the way to go. So we did, and "Matrix" won the vote. And then all hell broke loose. Some team members argued we should be less predictable and geeky, that we could use some out-of-the-box thinking, choose something completely different, etc. What ensued was truly horrific. Geeks cursed each other, pizza boxes got thrown, beer was spilled, perfectly-formatted CSS insults flew, moms' basements destroyed all over the world. I mean, spilled beer! Utter madness. Bottom line – with such a great list of suggestions and a team vote, we still couldn't reach an agreement. And, for a while, we actually contemplated settling for Kodi "MultiPass". Nahh, just kidding! The users have spoken, the team has voted and, in the end, geekiness has won! Kodi "Matrix" it is. Tags: Community Updates View the full article...

    Stuck in Demo Mode

    Anyone figure this out? I'm having the same issue
  7. Last week
  8. Just when you thought we were all having a rest for Easter, here's some surprise news for you: Kodi "Leia" 18.2 is ready to roll. The sun is shining and the sky is blue here in western Europe, and we're all tied to our keyboards to bring you the latest Kodi loveliness. We're kind like that. In keeping with the 18.x maintenance release cycle, this is a bug fix release, with no real new functionality. What's worth noting, however, is how we've identified and managed the bugs this time. We've always valued high-quality bug reports, and, for this reason, for 18.x we implemented an issue template and an automated verification system in the GitHub issue tracker. This makes the bug reports more complete, and gives the Kodi developers a better chance to pinpoint problems more accurately and fix them more quickly. The aim is to solve the problem of waiting for proper full debug logs, samples and suchlike, hopefully saving a lot of time and getting issues resolved more quickly. Hopefully, you can see the results of this new process in the 18.x bug fix releases. For this 18.2 release we are also grateful to have received many code contributions from outside Team Kodi. With this help we were able to fix performance and dependency regressions in our GLES rendering path. Similar fixes were contributed for the AML platform, which really hasn't received much love over the past years. VAAPI on Intel has gained some corrections for interlaced content that toggled interlaced flags during playback, and therefore caused stutter by reconfiguring the decoder. Amongst other things, work has continued on Kodi's music experience: database access speed has been optimised as well as improved import functionality. Similarly, there have been fixes and improvements across all aspects of PVR, with a couple of particularly nasty bugs sent on their way. You can also find a huge number of improvements for the Android platform. Because of the automated Google tests done in the Play store, we were able to track down and resolve a lot of issues revealed by those "drunken monkey" tests. Beside all the fixes, we have introduced a Codec Factory (Android only) where power users can configure HW-Decoder usage in a fine-grained way. Most box sellers only provide usable codecs for formats which they use to sell content. Other format support tends to be poor, and therefore a configurable heuristic-based codec and video dimensions was added. The settings can be configured by the user in human-readable and writable XML format. More information can be found in the related pull request. We will continue to work on Leia: an 18.3 release will be drafted once we have important fixes for this release. In the meantime, development on version 19 M* has begun. We will officially announce its new codename shortly. A small spoiler: "May the force be with you - always". But this time we will switch universes (and here's another hint: you might find it on GitHub already if you know where to look...). The full v18.2 changelog can be found in our GitHub milestone. If you want to read back on what was actually changed in v18 itself, you can find the corresponding articles in the blog posts - Kodi 18, Kodi 18.1.

    Has anyone solve the problem of trailers lagging/buffering? I got a 300mbps connections so it wouldn't be an issue of my internet speed.

    Are you guys fixing this for 18.1

    Do you think we can have the developers of the original cinema experience take a quick look at the code or how about we raise some money to have some external developers fix it? "@Nuka1195 (Home Theatre Experience), @giftie (Cinema Experience) for writing and maintaining the predecessors that inspired CinemaVision. @mcorcoran for his help scraping all of the trivia and contributing code and ideas to CinemaVision."

    Are you guys fixing this for 18.1

    "Sign" the "petition" below and let's ask the team at OSMC to include a working version of CinemaVision for KODI 18.1+! If anyone can do it, they can, and it would make the best KODI-based player on the market even better: https://discourse.osmc.tv/t/bundle-cinemavision-add-on-with-vero-4k/79354

    Wish there was a developer out there who could take this open source add on and update it to simply work with the latest version of Kodi.
  15. Earlier
  16. Just an update on this one. I upgraded to LibreELEC 9.0.0 which is Kodi 18.0 and the freezing issue is resolved.

    Wanna Play a Movie

    Sorry about the wait. Had computer issues. So I compared your log to mine after turning on debug mode. My first suggestion would be to remove any add-ons that may be giving you a problem. I noticed this, but is likely not what's causing the playback issue with CV. You may want to consider uninstalling Kodi and installing it fresh just to make sure it runs clean natively. 22:03:29 T:1656 ERROR: EXCEPTION: argument "path" for method "XBMCAddon::xbmcvfs::exists" must be unicode or str 22:03:29 T:1656 ERROR: EXCEPTION Thrown (PythonToCppException) : -->Python callback/script returned the following error<-- - NOTE: IGNORING THIS CAN LEAD TO MEMORY LEAKS!

At first I thought it may have been the file name giving CV an issue, but it looks like you've tried other movies without brackets, etc. I can't honestly see where the issue is. I've posed up an example of what mine looks like for comparison, but I'm running a newer version of Kodi on a different OS so I'm not sure how helpful it will be. kodi_cv_log__kodi.log.txt

    Kodi Leia 18.1 with 1.1.1a8 Error

    Excellent - I'm going to read back through the fixes to 18.1 and make sure there isn't anything major there and give it a try. Thanks for the info Otis!

    Kodi Leia 18.1 with 1.1.1a8 Error

    That is the 32 bit version of Kodi. The Shield is capable of running the 64 bit version, which would be 'kodi-18.0-Leia-arm64-v8a.apk'.

    Kodi Leia 18.1 with 1.1.1a8 Error

    Got this working great again finally by downgrading kodi to 18.0. This build in particular for android nvidia shield - 'kodi-18.0-Leia-armeabi-v7a.apk' Just uninstall your current Kodi, then place the apk in downloads folder on your device, then use ES file manager to install it.

    Yah I have a shield and tried this latest CV... hangs on black screen, looks like CV developers have taken a long break, guess I will look into downgrading kodi.

    KODI v18 Support?

    Unfortunately the Microsoft store for Xbox one does not let you roll back previous versions....... so I guess no CV for a good long while then.

    KODI 18 & CinemaVision

    Same here. I could not get 18 to work either but now I'm having issues with 17.6. If you play the sequences through the editor everything work perfectly (lights,trailers, bumpers..) but if you play from your movie context menu for CinemaVision the actions for the lights do not work. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have tried everything!

    Is CinemaVision still being developed?

    Hopefully his personal issues get resolved and he and everyone involved are okay. I will say this though timing is unfortunate because Kodi v18.1 is one of the best releases yet for hardware like the nVidia shield. So I do hope things get better or he branches out and lets a few other developers work on the main code but ultimately in the end I hope that he is alright.
  27. The so-called Kodi builds are essentially a preconfigured Kodi install that someone created, ready for you to use. They often come bundled with wizards, tons of third-party add-ons, and a boatload of stuff you don't need or doesn't work. In essence, Kodi builds take out of the equation Kodi's most prized feature, the "endless configure and costumize" part. Yes, we all know Kodi isn't exactly easy to setup for the novice user. That is the main reason why so many people use Kodi builds. That and the streaming add-ons already installed and ready to use. Speaking of which, there's an important distinction to be made between official and third-party add-ons. Official add-ons are reviewed and curated by Kodi Team members and if they meet all the rules, included in our official add-ons repository. Of course, this means that no add-on that circumvents a paywall or provides illegal or free access to content that you would otherwise have to pay for, is accepted in our repository. Enter thirdy-party add-ons. It's noteworthy to point out that most third-party add-ons aren't illegal. They are authored by legitimate developers that, like us, give their free time to the benefit of the community. Those developers choose not to submit the add-ons to our repository for a variety of reasons, but the add-ons are legal. Just not official. But some are illegal. A few are both illegal and just downright nasty, and some rogue developers even think your hardware is their hardware. These developers and the surrounding ecosystem only care about popularity or money. Yes, they do make money from you, selling that marvellous VPN that you so desperately need to feel safe, showing you ads galore, promising everything for free. We know the story. A work colleague told you about a wonderful software that makes it very easy to watch your favorite sports, movies and TV shows online and for free. You go out and buy a Kodi box. You plug it to your TV set and voila! Instant free entertainment! Now, if it sounds like it can't be legit because it literally sounds too good to be true and that they must be dodgy or bonkers doing all this for nothing, I can tell you your spidey senses are absolutely correct. It is too good to be true and there is no such thing as a free lunch. We can see the appeal of Kodi builds, but please stop using them. Help us improve our documentation, suggest usability improvements, a feature, whatever helps us improve Kodi. Tags: Community Updates View the full article...

    That should work. I'll have to run mine at home and do a comparison so I know what to look for.

    Xbox One support

    I having the same issues with my cinemavision on xbox one , is not picking up any files from standard directories. only show trailers. Anyone with xbox one and Kodi that is working?

    Is CinemaVision still being developed?

    Yip. Like everyone else here I don't use Kodi, I use CinemaVision. I'd always hoped Ragnarok would port CinemaVision to Plex and I could have one shared system across all my friends servers. The fact that CinemaVision doesn't work with 18.1 isn't just unfortunate, it means my entire cinema experience is gone. I don't want a TV experience in my home theatre, I want CinemaVision! I'm happy to wait months and months for an update, I'd just like to know if an update is possible, all things considered. Love to Ragnarok in the meantime. If this project is over, it was a blast. I've never enjoyed movies at home so much.
