    Xbox One support

    18.1 has broken this workaround too. Now CV doesn't play at all :(

  5. @DexDeadlyI had a couple of little bugs that I was ferreting out at the same time, I got them all sorted out except the CEC thing. I had to step back for a minute to get a fresh perspective on it, it was getting to be a bit much trying to sort it all out at once. I installed cec-client(?) on my Pi, but wasn't able to get any of the commands to execute via SSH from my laptop. I've got to take some time to read up on the documentation for that, it just wasn't as straight forward as I assumed it would be... or I was just overlooking something extremely simple lol. I also need to read up on how to get Kodi to execute SSH commands, it's just not something that I've had to do before. I'm finishing up a RetroPie build right now, and have a couple of other projects to tie up, and plan to come back to this. Other than the not dimming thing though this has worked swimmingly so far, I'm so glad I revisited this post and gave it a try. And thanks for suggesting it... even if it did take me a while to jump on board lol.
  6. Hi, I know there was some talk a while ago, about getting CinemaVision to work on the normal "Play" button on Kodi 18, istead of the "Cinema Mode" button that we have been using on earlier versions of CV & Kodi. Will it be possible? Is this something that are being worked on? I haven't install Kodi 18 yet, but I think I will give it a try now that 18.1 is out. Does Cinema Vision working with Kodi 18 now?

    Content path error

    I was one of the many that awoke one day to find their Shield auto-updated Kodi to v18 without so much as a "do ya mind?" which subsequently had issues with my SQL back-end and performance. Those issues are now resolved, but I had to fix-forward with those as a quick google around found MANY in the same boat as me, and from what I gathered - the Google playstore will get its way in keeping things updated. It was then, that I realised I'd have to make something work with Leia. As mentioned - unfortunately in this specific config - 0 functionality with CinemaVision on Android Kodi 18. I use to run this functionality back in the day on the old CinemaExperience and now that I've got my Media Room complete, wanted to go back and add it in again. Found that CE had gone the way of the dinosaurs, but thankfully found CV had picked up the slack....unfortunately CV now seems to have suffered the same fate. It's a shame really - when it comes to a full cinema experience, this really is the icing on the cake. I'm stubborn though, so I'll probably keep tinkering, so if I manage to wrangle some sort of fix or workaround, I'll be sure to post. Update: Just checked Ragnarok's profile on the Kodi forums, and he was last online on the 10th of Feb this year, so the man's alive. Hopefully life is treating him well and we'll see him back in action sooner rather than later.

    Content path error

    Hey Mungo, I managed to get around the issue by clicking on NFS first and then select the folder manually on my NAS, but then i got into other issues with the current CinemaVision version. I then tried v1.1.1a8 again but for some weird reason wasn't able to run any of my commercials or other video content or sequences like you. This evening I decided to uninstall Kodi Leia and install v17.6 instead with the current version of CinemaVision. That at least ran everything like before the update again. I just have some worries about any new versions of Kodi going forward as further development/updates of Cinemavision seems to have come to a complete stop.

    Content path error

    I didn't upgrade like you @Fisherman456 but I've been trying to get CinemaVision working on my Shields for the last week without any success. Shields are on the same Android version yours is, and also on the same version of Kodi and running the same version of CinemaVision. Your error I've received, and managed to skirt around by just making a new parent folder and pointing CinemaVision to that. It will then generate all the subfolders fresh which seems to clear up any permission errors received. Then just copy your actual files from your previous CinemaVision folder into the fresh structure. No idea why that works - I'm assuming it's some weird ownership/permission miss-match going on even if all looks well. In having said that - as mentioned, still 0 luck getting anything working out of CinemaVision on the Shields. Windows install works 100% - Android version of Kodi, none. Can't even get it to play the default sequence that has the files stored locally, so the whole permissions thing is definitely not the underlying issue. Considering it works on Windows, and not on Android using the same permissions with the current builds of CinemaVision/Kodi/Android - leads me to believe it's an issue with the CinemaVision add-on and the android version of Kodi. Cheers, Mungo
  11. Hey @th0r4z1n3 thought I replied, Did you get it to work? Your line of thinking to me is right. Kodi to trigger the ssh. Let me know, I might be able to try messing with that soon if you haven't figured it out.

    Has the site been hacked?

    Thanks for pointing that out. The site wasn't hacked. The is the text that we use when designing something. It should have been removed before going live. It should display properly now. Thanks again.
  13. Hi all, I'm coming back to you regarding this topic Still have this buffering issue with Itunes since now a long time. The only workaround I found is to default the trailer quality to 480p in order to minimize the buffering but you can imagine that I can't be satisfied with this because a video with that quality on a very big screen really looks poor ... I can see in the latest december release that you have integrated TMDB as a new trailer scraper, which I think is a smart move as this one is already integrated with Kodi. When do you think this release will be delivered as stable ? Can you update us ? Thank you very much . Guillaume

    Apple Trailers issue

    I was dumb and hadn't even tried limiting it to 720p. I've got plenty of bandwidth so 1080p shouldn't have been a problem, but I guess something somewhere was bottlenecking me. Now if only I could find out where Ragnarok has gone. Hope everything's ok with them.
  17. Upcoming bug fix release.. Two weeks have past since the official release of v18.0, and hopefully you all like it as much as we do. A final release always comes with some unexpected bugs or improvements that needed a bit more time. In the months to come we will bring you regular v18 updates that included bug fixes and improvements. In this 18.1 Release Candidate we have included the following changes: Speed up Player and Playlists operations with JSON-RPC Define a senseful default value for advanced settings 'updateemptytagsinterval' Revert edge case crash fix that caused DVDs to be not recognised on Mac OS Remove "dxvaallowhqscaling" advanced setting to prepare for DXVA improvements in v18.2 for Windows Linux X11: fix usage of required configuration values Add date to the log records Don't react on DPI change event on Win10 >= FCU Fix Android MediaCodec freeze when early disposing stream Flush streamplayers if abort is requested which solves waiting too long. Skippingskip DVD screens for example Fix ListitemAbsolute and ListItemPosition in GUI engine Ignore very first "server not reachable" notification for PVR servers Use extended result codes for SQLite Fix invalid PTS decoder value which should inprove MPEG2 playback on Android devices update SSL CA trust store Handle empty vertex buffers in GUIFontTTFGL which caused a hard crash Reintroduce setting "Close channel OSD after switching channels" for PVR Fix thread logging on Android which cause issues like gettings frozen on DVD/Bluray playback Avoid attempt to load music info for smartplaylists Fix Top 100 Albums regression RenderCapture: Only query Occlusion if GL lower 1.5 Check current mode if whitelist doesn't match and take correct action Check if app intent is valid on Android. This fixes a hard crash when trying to open Kodi again Fix PVR input stream creation for pvr file items only containing a path and no recording/channel tag. Fixe playing VP9 streams using inputstream addon. It failed because codec extradata is not existant for this stream codec. Catch an exception while reading or writing a file Fix logical "or" operation in GUI engine Check the system capabilities to support sleep states S1/S2/S3/S4 before reporing them as available Fix crash in PCSX ReARMed with BIOS Several Estuary cosmetic fixes The full v18.1 RC1 changelog can be found in our Github milstone. If you want to read back on what was actually changed in v18 itself you can find these in the blog posts list. The V18 "Leia" T-shirt Inspired by the "galaxy far, far away" theme, our resident artist Sam went above and beyond and designed perhaps the coolest Kodi announcement video of all time. We loved his work so much that we're modelling the Kodi 18 shirt after it, along with more art to come. Here it is, our newest, coolest shirt: K-18L - available in several shirt colours and not just black or white. Changelog The Kodi 18 changelog wiki page gives a list of changes for this release; those seeking a more technical listing can view the merged pull requests on GitHub. Thanks As always, this is a huge team effort, and our collective thanks go out to all the developers who submitted code, whether that was thousands of lines of a core new feature or a couple of lines to fix a skin bug. Thanks go out to the ecosystem of add-on and skin developers who updated or created new add-ons to use new functionality in Kodi 18.0. Likewise, we're indebted to the many beta and release candidate testers who took time to explore the pre-release application, file bug reports, test fixes and assist the team with resolving issues. And finally ... special thanks go our to our tireless team of forum moderators, and all those who spend time in our forum and enjoy being part of our community to share tips and tricks and help others. Without all of you, this project would be nothing. Help! If you experience any issues or find any remaining bugs, please post in the General Support section of our forum (please be mindful of our forum rules when posting!). If you have fixes for issues please submit a pull request with your changes to our master branch on GitHub. We also welcome users who want to help answer questions in the forum or write articles for the wiki.

    Check Apect ratio?

    Hi Have you already implemented the possibility to send HTTP commands to Change the aspect Ratio? Many Thanks BR Massimo
  19. At the beginning of the month seven Team Kodi members attended FOSDEM, Europe's largest meeting of Free and Open Source Software Developers that takes place over two days each year in Brussels, Belgium. FOSDEM is a great opportunity to meet-up amongst oursevles, and with friends from projects like VideoLAN and FFmpeg. Day 1 started early with Martijn's presentation on Kodi v18 in the Open Media devroom. The room was fully packed, so if you couldn't attend or catch the livestream you can watch a recording of the session here. After that, we hung out in-front of the room to continue talking with interested attendees and answering questions. In a first for the team, we also held a Kodi meet-up in the BoF room. We did not know what to expect or if anyone would show up to chat, but despite some minor room confusion (not the one we advertised on our blog, but FOSDEM got it right) our concerns disappeared when 15-20 people arrived. There was no specific agenda, but several users engaged us on topics like Linux/NVIDIA support or the new RetroPlayer experience. We were also asked how to participate in the project without being a C++ or Python coder, and this led to some of the team members active in the project for a long time sharing some of the backstories behind our efforts. As a small reward for choosing to attend our meet-up instead of one of the numerous alternatives, we handed out free Kodi stickers. Unfortnuately there is no recording of this session, but if you were present and have feedback or want us to do this again next year? Please contact us. Day 2 had no Kodi-specific events so we could mingle with the crowds, visit the booths of other projects, and watch talks we were interested in. It sounds like a lazy day, but was actually hard work due to the impressive number of people attending this year! We would like to publicly thank the organisers for another awesome FOSDEM weekend, and we look forward to attending again next year! Lastly we owe thanks to our sponsors and donors whose support enables us to attend events like FOSDEM to represent the project and engage our users. If you want to support Kodi and have some spare change, please consider making a donation. View the full article...

    Content path error

    Hi, I just updated my Shield to version 7.2.2 and with that it updated Kodi to v18 Leia. At one point I had to reinstall Leia because of weird display zoom issues and after I re-installed Cinemavision, I could no longer set the content path to the same folder on my NAS without getting the error 'Make sure the drive is writable and the folder is valid'. I double checked that the user that I login with to the NAS from my Shield has both read and write privs to the folder. I've tried it also with a beta version of Cinemavision (v1.1.1a8), but I got the same error.

    I just noticed that the banners across the top are full of nonsense (see attachment).

    trailers .nfo files

    I'm pretty sure that's referring to the .nfo file of your feature. Meaning if you are playing a horror film, you can have it stream horror trailers or if you have a PG film, it will stream PG rated trailers. The .nfo file should be in the directory with your feature film along with it's artwork, etc.
  23. dyhometheaterguy

    trailers .nfo files

    I just downloaded the lastest update to Cinemavision and I noticed this in the update notes: Trailers: Content scraper will now read genre and rating from .nfo files How does this work and how do I add them to the trailers folder? I assume I can put a genre for the trailer I download in the folder and it was analyze it from the actual movie genre to determine which trailers to play

    Xbox One support

    I have noticed that whilst this method works for video content when I point to a directory or file, it is not picking up anything in the other standard directories, Audio format, ratings videos etc. Xbox now has left the RC stage and has Leia 18.0.

    [Kodi News] Kodi 18.0

    Kodi 18 is here! <drum roll> ... after another long gestation... the Kodi team is very pleased to announce the immediate availability of Kodi 18.0 "Leia" for all supported platforms (UWP for Windows Store and Xbox is working its way through the system as I type, so will be available shortly...). While we were planning to move more to a "release early, release often" model, this has some significant changes that really needed to be tested and bedded in before we launched it, so it did take a little longer than we'd hoped. It was, though, a worthwhile wait :) To put it in some kind of context, this version includes: Approaching 10,000 commits (code chunks changed) More than 3000 pull-requests (collection of commits that were included in one go) Nearly 9,000 changed files Nearly half a million line of code added, and much the same number removed Over 36 open source developers A lot of dedicated free time conceiving, designing, developing and testing these changes (and all the infrastructure you see around them, including this web site) Quite literally many, many cases of beer and wine We've covered many of the detailed changes in this release in previous blog posts, but here's a quick summary of what you'll find in this new release: Retroplayer gaming and associated game control support One of the big features of this release: support for gaming emulators, ROMs and controls. This is a significant topic in its own right, so look out for future posts on this, but suffice it to say at this time that you now have a whole world of retro gaming at your fingertips, all from the same interface as your movies, music and TV shows. For the genuine experience as well, we've also introduced support for joysticks, gamepads, and other platform-specific controls, so the games will work just as was intended. Digital Rights Management decryption support Early days in many ways, but this opens a whole new world of content for Kodi. Depending on your hardware and licensing, Kodi can now access external DRM handlers and then play subscription content just like any other local media. This is significant in a time when so many people are switching to protected streaming content; there are already several add-ons available that make use of this functionality, and we genuinely hope that we'll see support from other content providers in the future. Music Library – new ways to explore and enjoy your music collection Significant improvements including better filtering (media source, artist gender, type etc.); artist sort name; enhanced artwork; faster API access (particularly useful if you're controlling Kodi by remote with the TV off). Creating and using the music library is even smoother than before. If you have never bothered to use the music library, or maybe never even used Kodi as a music player, then we encourage you to try this feature in Leia! Live TV improvements, including support for new back-ends Support for RDS (Radio Data System), automatic selection on startup ("boot to live TV/radio", if you like), improved OSD and PVR information, enhanced EPG and PVR actions, and many more. Back end support has been updated across the board, with new support for Zattoo, Teleboy, and Sledovanitv.cz . Binary addon support and the binary addon repository While we've actually been using platform-specific binary addons for some time - think PVR addons and screensavers - there's been a lot of work to expand this functionality and move to a more modular architecture as a result. This has effectively halved the main Kodi installer in size, as you now have the option to install some of these functions as you need them instead of them coming pre-bundled. The architecture also now opens the door for other types of pre-compiled binaries, perhaps to provide access to different media sources. The binary repository is currently available for Android, OSX and Windows; Linux users will still have to use the PPA, while iOS and UWP will continue to include the binary add-ons in the installer because of platform limitations. Android Leanback and voice control Kodi can now show its library contents on the main Android TV interface, with full voice functionality: unwatched random movies and unlistened-to albums, binge watch suggestions, and more. Voice integration allows you to search for content with Google Assistant, using the same feature for "voice typing" wherever you see the traditional Kodi on-screen keyboard. Playback improvements (audio and video), including improved Blu-ray support The video player is core to so much of what Kodi does, and some significant changes have been made to the architecture to ensure we're better able to cope with 4K, 8K, HDR and similar, as well as keeping up with the variety of CODECs out there. Changes have been made to priority, to ensure that video gets the most attention from the CPU/GPU for smoothest-possible playback. Elements have been moved out into binary addons, so components can potentially be updated outside of the main Kodi code base. We've also improved Blu-ray support in terms of disc detection and metadata, BD-J menu support (subject to Java support on the device), there are updated external interfaces for e.g. MPEG DASH and RTMP input, and there are improvements to 3d playback (including in 2D mode) and various changes to specific CODECs. On the audio side, there's a wealth of improvements and new support for all types of playback system: ALSA, PulseAudio, OSS, Pi Audio, DirectSound, WASAPI, Darwin, SndIO "Estuary" skin modifications and changes to the GUI/skinning engine Many of the other changes listed here have an obvious ripple effect on the Kodi interface, so we've made change to support these: the gaming modules and associated libraries and the PVR changes, for example. We've also updated keyboard layouts for more languages, updated image resources, changed API calls, improved response times with optimisations for e.g. scaling and redrawing. Revised codebase and build guides Starting with this release, our build guides are kept up-to-date against the current code base - current, as in (hopefully!) up-to-date against a single pull request or code commit. That means that we no longer need to maintain How-Tos and standalone guides, and you will be able to reliably find a build guide for any point in time, even retrospectively. Platform Specifics As a multi-platform application, Kodi inevitably has to be updated in different ways for different operating systems, whether that's simply to keep up or whether it's to unlock new functionality. Android gets API bumps, speech-to-text, SD card support, among other things; BSD gets all-round improved support, especially on the video (VAAPI/VDPAU) side; Linux gets DRM, Mir/Wayland support, numerous video improvements, and build system changes; iOS gets support for iOS 10, improved VDADecoder support, and general improvements on both TVOS and arm64 IOS; and Windows finally gets 64-bit binaries, along with improved UWP compilation, enhancements to image rendering, and another slew of general platform-specific improvements to how we handle libraries and APIs. ... And Other Things Of course, there have also been a huge number of other changes, some of which will be invisible to very many users. Bluetooth support, CMake build system, visualisations and screensavers, improvements to the JSON-RPC API, improved code stability, performance. and security (as well as general code clean-up in many core areas), remote control changes, web interface changes, logging changes, dependency changes... the list goes on. Do take a look at the change log and detailed commit history (below) if you're really interested in looking behind the curtain! The V18 "Leia" T-shirt Inspired by the "galaxy far, far away" theme, our resident artist Sam went above and beyond and designed perhaps the coolest Kodi announcement video of all time.

    Glad you were able to find a workaround at least! Hopefully CV gets updated for Leia since it is about to go to final release.

    I have now a work around..... of sorts! I can get the sequence to work by forgetting the CV Launcher and instead manually queuing a film, then going in CV and press Play. Until the issue gets sorted I can live with doing it this way.

    FSK Classic Ratings

    i have a question about the 3d FSK Ratings. The files are called 16 (3DSBS).mp4, but my Kodi didn´t recognized them as a 3D File and didn´t turn my kodi and tv into 3d. when i change the name to 16.3d.sbs.mp4 kodi changed everything to 3D but CV didn´t play the ratings bumber before the Feature starts. how to get the 3d ratings bumper working or how can i include my own 3d rating bumpers or another style in 3D ? greets Orakel

    Trivia Module Crashes Kodi

    SOLUTION TO THIS - 1) Place a sequence that ISNT A LINKED TRAILER (file only) immediately after the trivia module in the sequence chain, like a countdown, short 10 second ad, whatever. (it doesnt matter, Cinemavision will automatically skip this sequence) 1a) I recommend placing some mp4 music files (not pls) in the cinemavision music folder and set the music setting in the addon to "directory" as well as setting this in the trivia module. 2) Save the sequence. 3) When you play the sequence that includes the trivia with music, everything will work as intended. The addon will play music during your trivia (the addon creator says music is no longer supported during trivia, but music does work using this method playing mp4 files placed in the Music folder of Cinemavision and trivia module music setting set to directory with directory chosen). I hope this helped someone who has this issue using the beta addon and Kodi 18.
