How to install Kodi from Debian


That did not work for me. SO I compailed it from source



My skin of choice


With error:

***Error in check_disks: could not repair filesystem, dropping to debug shell, try to run 'fsck' manually: ***
### Starting debugging shell... type exit to quit ###
sh: can't access tty: job control turned off


fsck -y /dev/mmcblk0p2

Importing Watched status

Seems to import Watched status, one has to have a Advancedsettings.xml file. With OSMC:

vim: /home/osmc/.kodi/userdata/advancedsettings.xml

Reboot XBMC/Kodi and from then on if the watched status is set, it will be imported by XBMC.



Installing Flirc app Add Flirc sources to “/etc/apt/sources.list “ if you have i386 you’ll need to add: “deb http://apt.flirc.tv/arch/i386 binary/” if you have x64 you’ll need to add: “deb http://apt.flirc.tv/arch/x64 binary/

apt-get update
apt-get install flirc


apt-get update
apt-get install openvpn

Move the oven file to /etc/openvpn

The openvpn package comes with an init script /etc/init.d/openvpn. This script automatically sets up connection for every .conf (mind the extension) file in /etc/openvpn.

sudo nano /etc/default/openvpn
Uncomment AUTOSTART="all"

If you have DNS issues, try:

sudo vim /etc/resolv.conf

My latest Kodi add-ons

No Limits Magic Build



New manual install for OSMP

sudo apt-get install python-crypto
sudo apt-get install build-essential python-pip libnss3 libnspr4
sudo pip install -U setuptools
sudo pip install wheel
sudo pip install pycryptodomex
wget -q https://github.com/CastagnaIT/plugin.video.netflix/archive/master.zip
mv master.zip  plugin.video.netflix.zip

In Kodi:

goto Settings
choose Add-on browser
choose Install from zip file
navigate to homefolder
choose plugin.video.netflix.zip
go back to main menu
goto Video->Video add-ons
If you dont have netflix there, go to my addons, video-addons, netflix and enable.
First time you start Netflix it will ask you for your login credentials.
When you first start a video in netflix plugin, it will notice you dont have libwidvine installed and help you install it. 
(takes a while, will download an image and extract the latest liwidvine, and install it. Let it run as root, when it asks)


LibreELEC (Leia) v8.90.008 ALPHA


Then, enable "InputStream Adaptive" and "RTMP Input" Under LibreELEC addons (VideoPlayer InputStream)

Then install plugin.video.netflix [New]


Then install plugin.video.netflix [old]


Then run the plugin, log-in, try and play a file. That will install libwidevine via some ChromeCast 2 Gig file thing.....

Then, reboot!

Then click, play....



Tidal one for me did not want to login. Kodi 2 works like a dream, plus their video work!
