I have compiled kodi helix branch on lubuntu using directions posted by ryad. Kodi starts smoothly. But I have two issues.|
1) My sound thuough hdmi using sunxi-hdmi card is passsed as 2 channel analog stereo. I can not see passthrough option in system/audio setting in kodi.
2) I use smplayer as external player to play m2ts files with playercorefactoy.xml posted by ryad where I chnaged "mkv" to "mkv|m2ts" in one of the line. When I navigate video to an m2ts file, kodi opens a fullscreen smplayer video but immediately closes it, does not play. I can play the file flawlessly through hdmi passthrough audio in smplayer from terminal, not kodi.
Any idea what is going on? I did compile kodi with --enable-alsa and --disable-openmax besides --disable-vdpau and --disable-debug options.
I will appreciate some help here.
