Kodi 19.1 è disponibile e risolve tantissimi bug: ecco il changelog completo

Vito Laminafra

Kodi è senza dubbio uno dei software più popolari per la gestione di media center: questo programma, totalmente gratuito e open source, riesce ad essere eseguito praticamente su qualsiasi hardware, da PC a smartphone sia Android che iOS.

Da pochi giorni è disponibile un aggiornamento per questo software, che arriva quindi alla versione “Matrix” 19.1. Le novità sono praticamente nulle: questo update infatti porta tantissime correzioni di bug e problemi introdotti con la major release di cui vi abbiamo parlato un paio di mesi fa.

Vi lasciamo quindi al changelog completo e vi ricordiamo che Kodi “Matrix” 19.1 è già scaricabile dal sito ufficiale o, nel caso in cui sia già installato, è disponibile come aggiornamento software.

  • Added: debug Info OSD Video. Extends current Debug Info Player (Ctrl+Shift+O) with new video-only info (Alt+O)
  • Fixed: with some unusual streams, incorrect HDR metadata could be passed (HDR10 passthrough).
  • Fixed: green screen on systems with old HW (DX feature level 9.1) playing 10-bit videos.

Android specifics

  • Fixed: SMB shares mounted on system level not visible in Kodi
  • Fixed: SMB shares labelled with cryptic numbers (UUID) instead of actual disk name

Xbox specifics

  • This version also brings 19.1 to the Xbox – while 19.0 has been in the Microsoft Store since launch, this was Windows-only while we found a way to adequately test the new release on Xbox. We’ve fixed that now, so Xbox users will automatically upgrade from 18.9 to 19.1 if you’ve got auto-update enabled. It’s worth mentioning that there’s a known memory limitation – present in 18.x as well – that causes Xbox application crashes with 4k content, so please be aware.

    Se qualcuno ha la versione 18, con tante personalizzazioni e addon installati, non aggiornate Kodi, ne libreelec, ne nessun derivato, questa versione è totalmente incompatibile con qualsiasi cosa installata nella vecchia versione. Hanno voluto rivoluzionare kodi, buona cosa, ma renderla incompatibile con tutto è stata una pessima idea.

      Concordo, io ho fatto l’errore. Sulla mia smart tv sony di qualche anno fa kodi 18 andava che era un piacere… aggiornato al 19, adesso qualsiasi video va in buffering ogni 20 secondi.
      In che maniera posso installare il 18?

      • Marko4646

        Io uso Libreelec su un raspberry, non ho una smart tv, quindi non so dirti come rimettere la versione 18. Fortunatamente prima di aggiornare mi sono informato su internet, ed ho evitato la fregarura.
