Postby PowaBanga » Wed Feb 17, 2021 4:44 pm

Hi everybody,
I make 2 sdcard for my rpi4, 1 with archlinuxarm for arm , and the other in aarch64.

Il installed kodi-rpi on the 2 sdcard, in the two case, kodi work perfectly, for web (with catchup), but when i try to listen my local files, i have only the sounds, and no image. They are all in x264, they should work...

here is the mediainfo of one of my file :

Not sure about kodi-rpi... that is old. Matrix 19.0 is due any day. Please install kodi-rpi-git and try again.

Ah, you're using kodi-rpi-git now (aarch64) and you don't have sound? Did you modify /boot/config.txt as pacman said to? You may have to select an alternative sound device from within the Kodi GUI.

i have only sounds, so I have sounds. What i do not have is image of the video. I only have a black screen when it's lauched.

it's strange because at past, i tryed to read the same files with mpv on cinnamon and it played the video correctly. Here i test without desktop environment, i type "kodi" or "systemctl start kodi" and it do not work correctly...

I can listen and see correctly the video from webTV (catchup), so i was thinking that maybe something was wrong from my configuration.

I did what pacman sayd to me the first time (modify /boot/config.txt) but my rpi didn't start after... i reinstalled some time archlinux on my sdcard, so maybe i can retest this step tomorow, if you think it's maybe from that.

Do you see the kodi GUI? Do you only get a black screen when attempting to play a video?

Yes i have the black screen only when i start the video from kodi menu.

So i retested on my two sdcard.
When i do the thing on aarch64, my rpi stop to start when i have the multicolor screen. simply. Maybe it is due to closed sources libraries ? does anybody can help me to fix that ? Can i use a file bigger than 4go on arm ???

On arm :
Final it work, and i saw that on arm i can install kodi-rpi (different that kodi-rpi-git)

So, kodi-rpi start correctly, but it can't acces to my hdd where all my files are... so I can't test it

and kodi-rpi-git can acces to my hdd, and my file. it can open and read them correctly.
so i think "cool" but on kodi-rpi-git, there is sometime crash, and the "catchuptvandmore" addon do not work...

So, the best issue for now, should be to find a why kodi 18 can't open my HDD, i really do not understand that.
