Kodi v17.0 “Krypton” Release Candidate 3
12 Jan

Just before New Years’s day we released our first official Release Candidate which marks the final step towards the final release of v17.0. These Release Candidate builds are dedicated to gain further feedback from users who are willing to take the jump towards v17 and we sure are grateful if they do as that provides valuable information on general stability and usability. Our team will certainly try to tackle as much of the reported problems as possible with the limited resources we have. We do want to note that since we are just a small team some of the reported bugs might not get fixed due to lack of developers or time. As such we would certainly welcome any developer who has the ability to help us out to try and fix the bugs he or she encounters and submit it to our code base for review. We sure would like to thank every one involved with either development, testing or simply helping out others with answering their questions.

Fixes done in this release candidate:

• Update Estuary with some bugfixes and improvements
• Revert change that cause video playback problems on some files
• Fix mouse not reaching right side of the screen on OSX
• Several fixes regarding general video playback
• Several fixes regarding EPG/PVR
• Several fixes and improvements regarding cmake build system
• Update to CEC 4.0.1

Best Media Center I ever used. Lots of functions.
Access to lots of cool and useful tools such as the
Photo Add-on "500pix" or "Big Picture". View world
photos of big events, beautiful nature, etc.
Play your music with all kinds of visualizations, album art, and more.

Video Add-ons are easy to install if you go by the directions, like from this place...

Step by step instructions on how to install from Repositories.
Or this place... http://www.htpcbeginner.com/best-kodi-addons-2016/
Just be careful of which add-ons you install.

Play your videos with or without subtitles and music with cool visualizations.

The main settings are in SYSTEM/SETTINGS, then Appearance, Audio, Video, etc.

Straight from your forum I have this problem with the new OTT TV BOX with the 4X CPU Cortex-A9r4 & 8X GPU Mali-450:

"This time after the 15.0 release it became clear that for several devices using an Amlogic chipset there was a change in firmware that caused Kodi to not function properly and only show a zoomed in or only used part of the screen."

After reading the last review I tried out XBMC and must admit it has come a very long way since it began. As an HTPC app it is incredible. There are many built in functions and lots of addons you can download within XBMC. You can even download and install skins with the click of a button. Adding different video feeds is a just click of a button away. It really is incredible how far this program has come. It also supports DLNA file sharing although video support is very basic and only offers a few video formats. If you haven't tried XBMC in a while, check it out.


Jul 15, 2012 Version: 12.0 alpha 3 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 10/10



XBMC has come a long way since the last round of comments in late 2009, and I just couldn't let it sit there with a out of date 'out of 10' rating. It's a mature product with a strong following of users and programmers and has a very active forum, so it deserves a better score.

In my opinion it's the best media centre application of it's type.

Beautiful to look at and very ambitious in scope. Looks very promising. Unfortunately I was hoping that since it had Xbox origins, it would play HD DVD format, but it won't. I still have about 30 HD DVDs that I was hoping to view with this. I have an Xbox external disc drive, but no media player that will play it.
