Upgrade Kodi for Debian

Post by przemko »

Hello, I have installed Kodi on my mini PC. There's old version of Kodi 17.6 and Emby connection don't work. Is there a way to upgrade Kodi to last version?

Regards,

Hi,

Kodi is installed directly from Debian package repository using apt.

As there is no newer version available https://packages.debian.org/buster/kodi

you would need to compile it yourself https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/blob/maste ... .Ubuntu.md

Hi, @Joulinar thanks for answer. Can You tell me can I install with that guide:
`https://basilgello.github.io/kodi-nightly-debian-repo/`

and how it would work with dietpi-config autostart configuration?

Edit. It work perfect on Dietpi :)

Regards.

well it should :)

DietPi is not an own OS. On amd64 hardware you are running plain Debian with DietPi scripts on top.

I know but I was afraid that kodi autostart might not work because some Dietpi3 scripts. But everything works OK, including Emby app.
Do You know maybe it's possible to add HDMI-CEC to work on mini PC like on Rpi? It will be nice to use TV pilot :)

I guess it's possible but I'm not experienced with it.

well following this will add Debian buster-backports to your source list. I'm not sure that this is working on 32bit DietPi for RPi, which is using Raspberry OS 32bit base image.
