I'm hoping to figure out these performance issues, but my first obstacle is getting the JRE & libbluray add-on loaded on my desktop.
(Deleted my previous broken question. I just noticed vpeter's newer .zips that include addon.xml.)
So now, tools.jre.zulu is getting loaded, but I still keep getting "libbluray-j2se-1.0.2.jar not found".
I've updated the jre-env.profile to point JAVA_HOME at my installed JRE and to point LIBBLURAY_CP at my addon directory (/Users/username/Library/Application Support/Kodi/addons/tools.jre.zulu/).
How does the addon.xml cause these environment variables to be set in a way that reaches libbluray.so?
