    I would like to see ffplay working as it is disabled as currently installed. One night even want to be able to set it as an external Player???

    FFMPEG is the ony thing I can find on linux that will display a video waveform , and this is a very handy tool, and necessary that one can check sources/streams this way especially for those authoring content. IMHO this is one thing that Kodi lacks and needs.

    another use case may be that someone wants to capture a single stream like security camera . It is logical to do this on the same LE where it would be viewed. I have been looking to see if there was such an addon but ffmpeg seems to be the only option

    I have the need to record a single composite Video source.

    As The source is LaserDisc sits next to my TV as does my LibreElec x86_64 I was wondering if there was an easy method to get LibreElec/Kodi to do the recording.

    This is not really PVR, as there are no channels and no timer is needed.

    I was thinking of purchasing a simple USB SD capture device and could use any recommendations there. I would prefer a device that can capture PAL & NTSC . No HD required, but need full SD resolution.

    I recently had the experience of testing printing on ChromeOS.

    What I learned is that , what I did in ChromeOS, would probably also work on LibreELEC!

    SHO 'NUFF!

    Today I tested and yes it does work.

    This was all on x86_64 so I can not speak for other platforms. Might be interesting to test on others!

    What you need:

    An IPP or CUPS printer. Many network printters are IPP already , you may need to enable it. CUPS can run on MacOSX, Raspberry PI or other linux, making most any printer IPP

    Chrome Browser addon in LibreELEC from here

    IPP / CUPS printing for Chrome & Chromebooks - Chrome Web Store (open this from Chrome in LibreELEC)

    After install CUPS IPP addon in Chrome on LibreELEC

    Configure the printer in the CUPS/IPP addon

    My cups address looks like this


    you will need the entire address and path

    delete any sample or unused printers from CUPS/IPP addon

    Now when printing from chrome, select CUPS/IPP Printer, and away you go!

    Fow printing to a WIndows shared printer you can try this:

    UniPrint Mint Beta for Chromebooks - Chrome Web Store

    I have not tested it


    I have 2 cheap Chinese NM70 systems that have served me very well. However lately one seems to always reset BIOS settings ptting it into Legacy boot and the other seems to no longer want to boot UEFI mode. The answer to the obvious is yes I have changed the batteries in bith systems, The disks have been verified and boot other machines.

    My question is is it possible to convert my back-up USB that is UEFI, to Legay boot? I have MANY MANY custom sripts and custom functions programmed outside of the normal Kodi tuff.

    I was thinking of taking a chance and running Ubuntu boot repair on it and see if it would perfoem some kind of Magic. I think I would then end up with GUB and maybe a mess.

    It seems I recall a ultility to back up and restore that was specific to LibreElec but it probably backs up only addons and settings right?

    Also I read somewhere once that there was a bootloader that allowed Legacy systems to load UEFI, much like they do in hackintosh communities, even making OSX boot on Legacy BIOS.

    Ok I have seen there UEFI/Legacy questions around the web so many times and always have the same question. How is it that a CD or DVD like Ubuntu can boot Legacy or UEFI but I can not make an installed OS that does?

    Thanks for any help.

    Chewitt , I understand that however if someone here seems to have an "official" release it seems it should work, even if it is php5 . I think ther real issue is it is not ready for LE 9

    I have a scan server that I wrote. I would love to run it on LibreElec but also need HTTP server with PHP support.

    running on x86_64

    I say "ditto"


    Using the RTL8723BE PCIe Wireless Network Adapter . I can See that ifconfig shows:

    wlan0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 48:A9:D2:55:9D:01


    RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0

    TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0

    collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000

    RX bytes:0 (0.0 B) TX bytes:0 (0.0 B)

    This seems to imply that the adapter is supported, however in the LibreElec utility it does not show up.

    I am running x86_64 image 8.90.009

    i think part of the problem you have is the documentation and the attitude that you (collectively) display here and is all over this forum. In one case a user had a same problem I had , and it was you that seemed to accuse him if installing from a different repo and how the repo will update automatically. It does not but after all you DO KNOW IT ALL.

    You might want to think about how you seem to run folks off . Must be former Kodi devs from a couple years ago.

    I believe the LE repo as well as the Kodi Official repo, are not updating once going to Kodi 18. Been trying to get through this myself. I can not even install confluence from officil Kodi repo for this reason
