comparing kodi add-on to android tv client

chenkschenks Posts: 852Members ✭✭✭

so as the kodi add-on is now available to all users, i have tried it.

firstly, no chapter support?

secondly, it's very slow at updating changes in the plex server.
example, i have a partially watched tv show on the deck. i marked it as watched in plex web and it disappears from the deck.
on android tv client the deck will update almost straight away. plex in kodi won't. it seems it takes a complete closing of kodi and re-loading for it to pick up changes.

thirdly, no way to display playback method on-screen?
in android tv client i can set it to display on-screen if it's direct playing or transcoding etc etc.

    1. Nope
    2. I haven't experienced slowness. It actually updates faster than the Android TV client for me
    3. hit 'o' when watching media. It's always direct playing, Unless you're playing 4k or H264, in that case, enable it in settings, then it will.

    hit' 'o' ?
    what 'o'?

    do you mean zero or the letter o?
    i'm using a sony android tv so my remote doesn't have an 'o' button.
    all my content is h264 in either MKV or MP4 container.

    Fairly sure it's the letter O.
    PMP uses the letter I.
    And yes you need a keyboard or at least a key mapping if using something like a harmony remote.
    With your Android TV remote I'm not sure what your options are.
