Additional custom library feature

At present the Kodi library is limited to the basic mp3tags. I consider these far too limited to do a quick selection and want to add my own tags.

Example: how can I differentiate between ten recordings of artists playing Chopin preludes, or find the right version between the dozens of live performances of a Stones number?
In my music cabinet I make this selection based on location of the CD and often also based on the side color of the box. I typically forget where a specific performance was given (was it Fillmore, Atlanta, Carnegie hall, etc).

My ideal solution would be a graphic drag/drop and swipe solution allowing me to "throw" any albums or songs in a database folder that I tag in my own way ("poor recording", "best performance", "old albums").
I'd like to be able to browse the library/database using keywords or quickly swipe through my music "cabinet" in the same way I browse through my digital shelves with e-books or search my image collection based on the name of a friend or any other tag that I've created for an item in the image.

We know that Google/Picasa etc can easily do this for images and books, Why not for audio?
Kodi has a lite database function so why not expand this with custom tags or meta words allowing for better filtering. From my perspective there does not need to be a compatibility with the limited mp3 tags. It may also be implemented using a hashtag option within one of the mp3tag fields, such as under comments. In that case I can filter using #great#live#stones#satis, for example to find the songs I am looking for.

Am I overlooking something and does this already exist?

Live TV mid-stream DAR change

DAR changes a lot for DVB SD channels. Old TV programming is still 4:3. So some channels often switch between anamorphic 16:9 and 4:3 mid-stream. Kodi does not seem to recognize that, resulting in a stretched image after the switch.

I used latest Krypton nightly from today, as I have seen some recent commits by @Koying concerning AMC and DAR.

I am attaching a sample which demonstrates the incident.


Picture Management

Hi All,

Currently I have all my photo on Flickr and I am able to watch them on TV using Flickr addon for KODI.
But I would like to implement better scenarios.

First of all, can you tell me how do you manage your photo with KODI?

Basically I have a TV Box built with Raspberry + HDD + enclosure of WSDLabs (6"x6" Blue box). I would like to have my photo on my HDD too and able to watch my album as slideshows when I have guest at home.

I would like also a good way to manage photo when I come back from Travel of mini vacation.

Today what I do is download my SD card on my PC. Manipulate one by one with Gimp (usually adjust level, eye removal). This is a time consuming task and I do not know if there is a better way to do that.
Then I upload on Flickr on an album.

I would like to know if exists a way (probably using KODI) to quickly keep in sync my photo with Flickr (or whatever cloud service), edit photo.

I think this is a typical scenario but sometime I have problem to manage it and keep my picture well ordered.

OPTION needed : Force ID3 Covers (if exist) when playing !!


I use these system foldesr : jazz 1970 / jazz 1980 / jazz 1990 / hip hop 80 / etc... to dispatch my songs
I put a folder.jpg to each my folder to have a nice image when choosing repertories

i have just import covers single to all my mp3/flac.

Problèm : kodi show only the folder.jpg when playing and in music/files.

Could you please add an option to force id3 covers when exist ?
If it doesn't exist Kodi should show the folder.jpg

my samsung reader does that and i think it's a huge lack.
I think also this should be easy to créate this option

Thank you for this wonderful software


PS : the only way to show id3 covers when folder.jp is to play with catégories filter (genre, artist,...)... Not fun !

controlling volume through ALSA device


We are trying to test Kodi playback on our own i2s-codec interface to Raspberry Pi Model 3. I am using standard raspbian image and running kodi over it. We developed an ALSA driver for our device and have been successful in doing a Kodi playback through our codec speaker output by making it as ALSA default device.

Now I further want to control volume (up/down/mute) through kodi on our device during playback. Could you tell me if kodi provide support to do such control on ALSA device ? and if yes, how? Do we need any support in our ALSA codec driver to enable these controls.

I know that every ALSA codec device has to implement mixer controls for such functionalities so I can add such controls in my driver. However, what I dont know how Kodi invokes them ? what should be mixer control name for playback volume up / down / mute

Could anyone please help me here?


Shield TV & IPVanish

I wondered if anyone can help - Kodi Version is 16.

Running the IPVanish app and Kodi on my Android phone works like a dream.

On the Shield, sadly a different matter.

Once I've loaded the IPVanish app (which I sideloaded) and connect. I then return to the home screen to load Kodi. With the VPN connected Kodi just hangs on a blank screen. Disconnect the VPN and load Kodi from the home screen and it works like a charm.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Finally Time to Upgrade – MySQL Assistance

I have two systems running Kodi right now, both having access to a shared MySQL Library on my Microserver.

One is Windows based Kodi running on an Acer RL70, and the other Kodi is running on my Amazon FireTV.

Both are versions 14.2.

My plan going forward is to upgrade to the latest Windows based version on the Acer, however on the Amazon FireTV, I would like to use SPMC instead of Kodi, as it plays nicer with my PVR.

Can these two developments of Kodi be used with a single MySQL database?

Also what is the process of upgrading from 14 to 16? What's the best way to go about it as I really don't want to lose any of my databases!

[Kodi 17 beta 6] No “Play Disc” ?

With Kodi Krypton Beta 6 I've recently switched to Estuary as the new default skin. Previously I was using Confluence.

In Confluence there was a "Play Disc" entry in the menu once a DVD was inserted. In Estuary I can't find the "Play Disc" entry any more. Had to enable "Automatic Playback" in settings in order to watch the DVD.

Was the removal of "Play Disc" intentional, is it a bug or is this just an extra setting I missed. I have no experience with Estuary skin far...
