Any way to install accelerated VLC/Mplayer, and and Image viewer? -> Kodi works!


#1

Hi,

I wanted to ask if there’s already info on installing vlc/mplayer and an image viewer on the clockwork pi?

I have found the usual sites on how to install them on the raspberry, but hardware is not exactly the same, so would those work?

Edit:

So yeah, turns out you can simply install kodi and it works, although I still need to find a working skin for the low resolution :smiley:

To install kodi like always, ssh into the console, then

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install kodi

Then add the shortcut:

cd ~/apps/launcher/Menu/GameShell/
echo 'kodi' > 'kodi.sh'

reboot and done, so far, but with a skin that doesn’t work for low res…

Edit2: Switching to the old “confluence” skin and setting the font size to bigger ALMOST works :smiley:

That’s cool, but how does one switch to the old “confluence” skin? I’m a Kodi newbe.

First, you have to get the skin via “get more”, then you can select it.

I already got the skin, but this short video I made should help anyways. In it I select the Confluence skin and a larger font size

Controls to use are the D-Pad and Start / Menu
