Re: Kodi on Bunsenlabs

Sorry Egyptrules, Kodi is not installable at the moment because libx265-59 is listed as "not available" sad

See https://packages.debian.org/jessie-back … c-ffmpeg56

Hopefully this will change soon.

Yes, of course smile

OpenELEC is very good, apparently.

Re: Kodi on Bunsenlabs

Kodi wrote in the install link here that

The instructions in this section are for unofficial Linux binaries that are un/semi supported by Team Kodi. Most of those binaries use system ffmpeg or even worse totally untested libav, which is not recommended for Kodi as we support ffmpeg only.

which i think as Head_on_a_Stick noted that ffmpeg56 requires libx265-59 which is listed as "not available"

Re: Kodi on Bunsenlabs

Just to note that I have Kodi installed and running under heavy use in my Debian jessie system.

Re: Kodi on Bunsenlabs

Kodi in jessie-backports has been fixed for several weeks at least, after the issue with libx265-84 broke it. I also maintain it in my unoffical multimedia-backports repository on the OBS--that has the advantage of rebuilding everything if I update a base package--so if I update x265, then that triggers rebuilds of ffmpeg and Kodi and nothing ends up broken, just unavailable until the builds finish.
