Kodi 15.2 ignores DVDs that play in 15.2 on Ubuntu

Unread postby bk_XU_AZ » Mon Mar 07, 2016 12:00 pm

I can play a DVD (LG USB DVD) on Ubuntu on my XU4, but my U3 running Android just ignores the very same disc in the same player. I tried enabling auto-play but it makes no difference. Am I missing a driver or something?

Did your DVD mounted well on the U3 Android?

No, it is invisible- when I try to browse for files. There's no evidence that it mounted either in Kodi, or in "Storage" within Android's settings.

I think the DVD file system or device driver could not be enabled in the Android OS.

I suspect that too. Woould you point me in the direction to check or install? Google hasn't been much help so far.

Many thanks.

Do you use your own compiled Android Kernel?

No- I am using the 4.4.4 download. I might just try to update it, I think it's a few months old. Downloading updates now takes almost 2 hours (I am near Phoenix, AZ). It used to be MUCH faster from http://odroid.com/dokuwiki/doku.php?id=en:u3_release_android

We never included the driver update for the DVD. So it will not work if you don't tweak the kernel build configuration.

That's good info. Can you point me to insctructions for building the kernel to my liking and getting it onto my U3?

One final question: Where's the link for the current toolchain? The link in the post is stale now. Thanks again

Me too. I should've tried that before posting. Thanks yet again, odroid.
