XBMC - External Player Active
« on: May 30, 2015, 04:52:02 am »
Hi all, I'm newbie to xbmc+cubie, just installed it and I can't get it to work with XBMC + tvheadend pvr addon, keep getting "External Player Active / Click OK when playback has ended"

Searched all around but couldn't get the solution anyware; downloaded the image from here: http://dl.cubieboard.org/model/cubieboard2/Image/android/android-xbmc/

Any kind soul around to help?

Regards

Cassio

Or download and install Kodi apk from here:

Thanks for that.

It kinda worked, but video and audio streamed from tvheadend server (MPEG2) is all choppy, plays 0.5 seconds and stop, then plays a little more and stops...

I have a raspberry pi that works flawlessly with the same server, what could that be?

Thanks again

Ok I solved disabling hardware acceleration (settings->video->acceleration), now it plays perfectly, I'm using kodi 15 nightly with tvheadend flawlessly.
