    This is true, Kodi on linux requires chrome for netflix and amazon video to work, but on other devices libwidevine is all thats required

    It looks from googling like libwidevine is closed source?

    It uses Chrome. If you're talking about Flix2Kodi.

    Hey guys, just to manage expectations here, I've been working on it for a few months now and the majority of it has been getting Kodi's many dependencies to build (which is done), so it's not nearly finished.
    I see people are expecting/asking if this works: Don't expect it to build, much less work (not to mention there's unpushed stuff that would be needed).

    So, it needs a lot more work. And I could always run into issues that hold it back for a long time (as has already happened) or forever.

    I'm not sure I'd have kept the branch public if I had known people would get so hyped up about it without even anything functional, but thank you all for the encouragement. :)

    Will the patch be just for Youtube or will it also work for Netflix and other video services (of course you would still need a Netflix/Hulu/Amazon/whatever account for said services to work).

    The patched youtube app I was talking about is available now in the usual places, and yeah it's just for youtube, so you can use it without it checking with the nintendo servers. The same thing could be done with hypothetical netflix/whatever apps in the future, if any are released.

    Velocity,

    I saw this was forked from https://github.com/garbear/xbmc, which is actually a port of kodi made into a emulator called RetroPlayer. "RetroPlayer is a new player core for Kodi Entertainment Center. It is similar to the video and audio players, but it plays games instead of movies and music."

    Are you trying to port Kodi, or Retroplayer?

    The fact that it's forked is irrelevant, I'm basing my work off of Kodi master, not any RetroPlayer development branch.
