[GUIDE] Kodi on Volumio 2.x -> Install on a nonvolumio image

Postby damnpretender » Wed Apr 17 2019 13:48

I successfully installed Kodi via the plugin management console of volumio on my rpi 3.

is there a chance to install Kodi addons within Kodi? can this be done via ssh? alternative solutions are welcome!

You can just install them from the desired repo's, no problem. :)

I successfully installed Kodi yesterday with the aid of your plugin.Thanks for the work you've put into this.
I first tried it the other way around (first Kodi, than adding Volumio) but that did'n't work. Than I discovered your plugin and it works like a breeze. Thanks again from a fellow citizen of Woudenberg!

Hi, i've just installed the kodi plugin on my rpi3 without issue, but on my sparky board i keep getting libbrcmGLESv2.so error from command line even if the plugin installation seems right. Tried each time to reboot after installing but i'm totally lost and i can't figure it out after lots of searching. Thanks in advance.

Hi there,

This is because the repo is not for the Sparky and I can't really test it because I don't own one. Can you provide me with the repo and means to detect a Sparky?

Hi Saiyato. Thanks for the reply.
I would like to help, but i'm totally new to sbc scene. I've only downloaded and installed the volumio image for Sparky and after that your plugin. How can i provide you with the correct infos? Again thank you.

Hi there,

I'm not sure how the Sparky board works, but I presume somewhat like the Pi's. We'll need a ppa (package archive) with a compiled Kodi package and its dependencies. I can add that to the installation script, that way it would be possible to install Kodi on a Sparky board. I've tried compiling Kodi and all dependencies myself, but it proved to be quite the hassle, so I can't do that I'm afraid ;)

Hello, does KODI plugin work on rpi4?
My volumio2 ver 2.632 it looks doesn't work. Not sure I m missing orbdoing something wrong.
Anyone else has tried to use KODI plugin on RPI4?

I wish to use volumio to play music and the same rpi4 to play movie h265.

rpi3 works fine but can't support h265

Thanks
Giacomo

Version table:
