Upgrade KODI to version 18
#1
Hello good day,

Is it possible to update kodi to version 18 ?? Is there an update script available or can the command lines be passed to perform this update?

I would like to try this new version to see how it goes, because I have never managed to get the 17.6 working properly ... I have always had crashes in the player, problems with the controls ... a thousand stories.

Thanks in advance, regards!

Unfortunately no. Kodi depends on the external player as explained on v4 FAQ
edit : our Kodi is fully compiled from source, you can try your luck with 18. We got to build v18 but it's not usable and would have same limitations.
From the FAQ
Q: In Kodi (not OpenELEC), I can’t see movie progress/subtitles or quit the video.
A: Kodi application uses MPV as external player for hardware acceleration. Because of that, OSD is not available and only keyboard shortcuts work. For example, to quit video, press Q, to fast forward, press right or up. Refer to MPV manual : https://mpv.io/manual/stable/ for more information.

Great thanks!! and I thought that the player had no functionality because it "broke" by some mistake or some other story. Lamendo not having read the FAQ beforeWink

postdada: if you say that kodi18 is going to have the same limitations in terms of the player controls, I do not bother to updateWink
