I see that you have a 4K movie running.

Can you tell the difference between 4K and 1080p?

Not really, at least not to my eyes.

 

Perhaps if one had a really large TV (say 65") one might be able to tell the difference.

 

I just used the 4K movie to demonstrate the DAX 17.1 build.

Very good fork. I installed it on my very old box and its given it a new lease on life.....the only downside is that the box does struggle at times.  I think its time to get a new box as 1gb ram is a bit sorry.

 

I was running Titanium under Kodi 16 but one day it decided to give up and all the screens changed.  For some unknown reason I could no longer get Titanium to load.

 

Ill stick with this fork and gadget junkies until I get a new box. It does find the streams a lot faster thats for sure.

I've been using Titanium on Android 4.4 boxes (Kodi 16), and Gadget Junkies on Android 5 and PCs (Kodi 17)

 

There is a Kodi 17 fork for pre-Android 6 boxes, which allows use of Kodi 17 builds on those earlier devices.

The Kodi fork shown in the youtube is MyGica , but EboxMC is actually a fork from a fork, as it is the old version from MyGica.

 

Downlaod it from the direct source, since the latest version has the Kodi 17.1 skin and menu . Be aware that it is based on Kodi 17.0, which had many bugs and RTMP is not supported. For RTMP you need either Kodi 16.1 or 17.1, or a Kodi 17 fork based on 16.1

With a 1Gb box you should refrain from using a build, as they are to bloated for the amount of RAM.

 

Better just install Kodi and the addons you will use, and it will work properly.

 

You can also side load LibreELEC and it will perform much better with Kodi, since you bypass the Android OS.

 

As for your Titanium build. You have to know if this is 16.1 or 17.0 based, and install a build according to the Kodi version it is based on.

The Titanium build I had was for the 16 I was using at the time. It worked very well until it gave up the ghost.

 

I've tried other builds as well on Kodi 16 and some were more successful than others.

 

It was only yesterday that I loaded the 17 fork as a trial and although it seems to pick up a lot more streams compared to running The Beast build on Kodi 16, there is quite a jittery picture.

 

I've had over 2 years out of the old box so I can't complain.

 It is. But it's getting a LOT of bad press, bordering on hate, with all the crap, bloat and intrusive pop up ads on it these days. I've almost entirely switched over to Solid Explorer now. Also on the Play Store. I find it much more modern in feel and a lot lighter than ES. I kept ES around while getting the hang of Solid just in case there were things I needed to do quickly without wasting time to fathom out how. I tried one called XPlore too but just didn't get on with it.

I went back to version 3.2.5.5 and stopped it being able to update. Works great and none of the bloatware.

Way to go I think.  That said, I really like Solid Explorer so stick with that now, still have X-Plore on both devices I use though.

This build has been well recommended...
 
 


I've just had my 4th go at Kodi as this build looked quite simple to use and hopefully proves reliable.

Initially, I've put it on my NUC as that is currently plugged into the main telly due to all the recent disruptions. I might give it a go on my Fire TV box if it proves worthwhile.

Here are some later instructions on how to install the build.

 

The original repo in the video may no longer work. Some reports say it's OK, others not.

 

Let us know your thoughts after you've installed it.

1st gripe. SD feeds labelled as HQ. They may be stable, but they aren't high quality.

2nd gripe. The usual one of spending ages finding what you want on a working feed, hence my huge preference to pay a small fee for ThaiExpatTV.
