Could anyone help me?

There are some missing libs.

How you installed Kodi? Have you compiled it?

pacman -S kodi

I have a file from Arch-for-bananapi's builders. maybe it will help you, though I can't understand it.
may you success! XBMC制作流程.zip (149.61 KB, Downloads: 45)

I have compiled kodi 14.1 "helix" successfully on my Arch installation. Indeed there is still no hardware acceleration for the native video player, but I managed to use smplayer as an external player and can play 1080p content flawlessly this way.

I used this guide: http://kodi.wiki/view/HOW-TO:Compile_Kodi_for_Linux

This is the configuration:
  1. ./configure --disable-vaapi --disable-vdpau  --disable-debug
Copy the Code
And this ~/.kodi/userdata/playercorefactory.xml:

  1. <playercorefactory>
  2. <players>
  3.    <player name="smplayer" type="ExternalPlayer" audio="true" video="true">
  4.      <filename>/usr/bin/smplayer</filename>
  5.      <args>-minigui -close-at-end -fullscreen "{1}"</args>
  6.      <hidexbmc>false</hidexbmc>
  7.    </player>
  8. </players>
  9. <rules action="prepend">
  10.    <rule filetypes="mkv" filename="*.*" player="smplayer"/>
  11. </rules>
  12. </playercorefactory>
Copy the Code
The smplayer is the compiled smplayer-qt4 from AUR.

If you're interested: I put the compiled binary into the latest image that I published.

Hope that helps.

Kind regards,
Ryad

Not the  greatest solution, smplayer it's hit miss on whether or not I get a frozen black box from smp, can vlc be used instead? Also are their any alternates  that work on any better on arch ie plex home theater or mb3/emby?

Ryad:

I saw your blog on building kodi for A10, however that gives issues with using external player. Here you are building from kodi guide: http://kodi.wiki/view/HOW-TO:Compile_Kodi_for_Linux . I did follow it after, ./bootstrap and .configure, I got error in configure that says I need pytohon < 3.0. Can you please give some more direction on building from git kodi. Thanks.

@jhaverbs:

You are on arch linux, right?
Refering to the error you mentioned above, you will need to install python version 2.xx.
This should be done by this command: sudo pacman -S python2

Good luck for the further steps. When youĺl need help, please come back here.
