Kodi (formerly XBMC) is a free and open-source media player software, which is a popular multi-platform alternative to Windows Media Center for HTPC (Home Theater PC) use. Recently I noticed some issues in DVD ISO files to Kodi 15/14 playback:
After the last update to kodi, iso dvd playback suffers lots of problem. I had to fix the lack of libmpeg2 but I still have issues:
* if I enable the bypass of introduction menu, the playback doesn’t start: I can ear audio for a while then everything stop.
* very often I get an xbmc crash and restart
* Video and audio stutter like software decoding If I play directly the vob files the playback is fine http://pastebin.com/HiCVUR7t I will paste later a log whith debug enabled. From github.com.
Due to lack of Media Player, the Kodi support very limited formats and DVD ISO/IFO files are the tab does not play. If you’d like to put DVD ISO/IFO onto Kodi 15/14 for the following travel, you need transfer DVD to Kodi 15/14 accepted files like MKV, and then stream movies to play with Kodi via network.
