Re: [Kodi 17 KRYPTON BETA 2] (QPKG source & binary on github)

Post by MrVideo » Thu Sep 22, 2016 12:48 pm

The Beta2 package will not install on my TS-451A. I exited the Beta1 version, so that it is supposedly not running. It only gets to 4% and then fails. Even though there is supposed to be a system log entry (it automatically brings up the system log), but there is no entry.

I have no idea why it refuses to install.

UPDATE: Found it. The qpkg script has an error:

Code: Select all

/bin/dd if=${0} bs= skip=1 | /bin/tar zxv -C /mnt/HDA_ROOT/update_pkg/tmp

Notice that the block size has no value.

You are welcome and all is well. It installed and works just fine. At least for the single video that I played.

BTW, it still says: TEMPORARY SUPPRESSED ...

I had a problem with my Kodi 16 official today, so I backed my library and went for a reinstallation.
I see the mykody17b2 and decided to give it a try ...
so far so good!
I could import my library and configuration all in a matter of minutes.
Very impressed with the new estuary skin!
@father_mande thanks

Thanks a lot father_mande for keeping this alive.
Like mrs4t4n above, I had some issues with Kodi 16 (sound disappearing) so I switched to Kodi 17 Beta 2 and it works like a charm on my TS-451+.

Phillipe,

I'm tempted to install your version of Kodi 17 B3 from your repo as I'm still stuck on v16 from QNAP.

One quick question, will the stable version of Kodi 17 you release just override the beta 3 and appear as an update? Or are you going to add this to your repo as a separate app?

According to this forum post, Kodi 16 was removed because of the DTS license.
I basically bought the QNAP just for the HDMI+Kodi support so it kind of su_cks you have to deal with it through workarounds.

Hi,

first of all iam really impressed by your work, thumbs up!
I have a question, I want to use my NAS(TS470 Pro) with Kodi to watch Amazon Prime Movies. I found a lot of infos, how to's, so it should be possible with Kodi.
Here comes my Problem so far, these are all written for LibreELEC, or Windows/Raspi use. I tried to install LibreELEC as a VM but, didnt get it running (I wasnt able to create an working .iso or Boot from USB).
Have you expierience in this matter? I found the path for Kodi17 on the NAS but it doesnt fit to the the explanations in the instructions. I was also looking for an Uptodate version for Chrome, but this wasnt available as well.
My knowledge about linux is not that deep, so that another reason why i cant get it working.
thanks for your answer.
greetings Silver

Hi,

thanks for the reply,
My Chrome in HD Station is v 46.0.24900 ?

For the extension, there is a newer add on, as far as i understood they changed some things here with Kodi17.
LibreELEC (forked from OpenELEC) is running on other systems aswell, but i dont own a raspi... Just a NAS, a smart TV and some Aspire One and on none i was so far able to get Amazon running:-(

As far as i understood, they are using this repository from sandmann79 and inputstream interface, and widevine to view the Amazon content directly in Kodi.

"The Inputstream Interface is only availible in Kodi 17 Alpha/Nightly Builds and only with them working.
It forwards the video by using the Inputstream Addons and a Decrypter directly to Kodi. No external browser is needed."

sandmann79 repo http://www.kodinerds.net/index.php/Thre ... geNo=1&l=2
https://github.com/Sandmann79/xbmc/commits/master
inputstream add ons http://www.kodinerds.net/index.php/Thre ... ilds-Upda/
https://github.com/vdrtuxnet/kodi-17.binary.addons

Installing the Addons and the repositories worked fine.

The only problem i have so far is to get the Decrypter path and the widevine stuff working, they wrote a script getwidevine.sh but, its made for LibreELEC, so my filesystem doesnt fit. thats why i asked.
SSH into NAS and finding the Kodi folders worked aswell. But i didnt manage to get and put the missing files in the right location.

mhh maybe i got all i need, i check all the above stuff while writing it down:
the instruction in this link gave me a hint http://www.kodinerds.net/index.php/Thre ... ilds-Upda/
"Anleitung LibreELEC (Krypton) ab v7.90.002 ALPHA auf Raspberry Pi 2/3 (thx to @debutanker für den Vorreiter)"


I analyzed the script and found out where the widevine file is located. After installing Chrome:
./opt/google/chrome/libwidevinecdm.so
then i have to put this file here:

/.kodi/cdm/

and link it :
ln -s /.kodi/addons/inputstream.mpd/lib/libssd_wv.so /.kodi/cdm/

as mentioned in the above instruction. I am gonna try this tomorrow.

thanks so far for the help:-)

greetings Silver

Hi Philipe,
i managed to get Kodi 17 and Amazon plugin on my workstation. Now i am looking to get it running in the NAS. found the matching folder structure, installed all the add ons, have to check the logfile for errors.

This lib is missing, i ll try to install it.
/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.20'

on my workstation this worked (had the same error there): sudo apt-get install libstdc++6
but apt-get is not working on qnap, but lucky me, some else tried this before;-)

Father Mande,

your wish :)
I have made a clean reset of the latest 4.2.2 QNAP OS version on my HS251, and installed the Kodi 17 Beta 3 version that you produced.
The app works great for streaming and playing music. However, when I choose to play a movie, it abruptly ends and returns to the HD Station screen on my TV.
This crash is honestly very annoying.
Any ideas on what else I should do or how I can troubleshoot the problem?

Thanks
I love equipment that can be updated
It is kind of my technoneed that needs to be fulfilled or else I become a miserable end user.
Is it that or am I just a masochist who yearns to become the testbed of consumer electronics companies, who just dies to be a member of their development team?
