    I currently use a custom Intel i3 based system after my humble Rasp Pi (A,B+) beginnings. Cost is probably the deciding factor for most folk. Lots of very excellent choices around today and a simple search as mentioned for HTPC might help. There's also some great info on building your own system if you're up for that. All depends on your budget and level of interest in assembling. Lots of help here either way ya go. Good hunting. :)

    Thanks for the reply. I'll check the settings again. One question I have about audio is what does the "keep audio alive" setting in Kodi do exactly and does it need to be set in some way for browser to work? I know this is probably basic stuff for you guys but I'm in the dark here.

    Thanks.

    I've been using the Chromium browser with stellar results on my x86 Generic LE build then updated to V9.0 and audio went away. My rig is a Gigabyte Z77 i3 Intel system connected to a Sony via HDMI. I've read the fixes posted so far but none have worked for me. I've tried the addon settings hw:x,x with no results. Not sure of how to fix this so hoping one of the LE gurus might point me in the right direction. I'm comfortable using the terminal mode but total nubie to Linux sys stuff. I also tried the Chrome version and same issue. Any help appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Not sure if this is something I'm doing wrong or possibly a Kodi issue but here goes. Using the Kodi file manager I've had this issue with the system freezing up when copying or moving large sized files say over three Gb in total. The progress bar sometimes stops at approx. 70 or 80 percent of completion then the keyboard and or mouse becomes inactive. The files were being moved from local ssd storage to a usb3 hd the last time it happened. Only recovery possible was reset and reboot. I'm using the x86 64bit LE flavor running it on an Intel i3 system. Appreciate any suggestions as this has happened many times over the past few years and I decided to track down the problem if possible. Thanks in advance for any help here.

    I installed your Chromium build on my i3 / Gigabyte MB and after a bit confusion with no audio I found the setting to enable it and viola! Nicely done and many thanks. Plays 1080p YouTube, Sling TV and anything else I through at it. I hope those that need a handy browser from within Kodi give this a try.

    Big kudos to olehenrikj !! Tried your Chrome with LE and it works like a charm on my x86 system. You solved a ton of issues for me and Thanks for sharing. I was using Chromium some time ago then an update to LE fouled it up but Chrome works just fine for my needs.
