Hello guys, with RedNAND and All other Hacks, is there any chance to get Kodi or any XBMC on Wii U?
There's been a chance of it since PowerPC kernel, but us developers have quite a backlog to work through
I second the OP, a good media player should be a pretty high priority.
yeah, that's right

Without USB access, i doubt it...
SD would suffice for the time being.
Would be cool , but I have hard-on for RetroArch right now.
Can't see it happening somehow, well not from the Kodi team.
Wait 'til they will release the homebrew capable rednand. I'm sure it'll be ported soon.
That or sponsor/organize some homebrew contest just like in the vita scene. It will definitely invite more homebrew developers that way.
I always wanted to see that happen in the 3DS and Wii U scenes. It could actually happen in the 3DS scene now...
There is two issues, the first is that we need to implement all kernel functions like write and it may take time to construct the header and reimplement some of them.
And the second is that Kodi are writing a lot and data corruption should be avoid, so we need to access to USB FS and manage mount points for Kodi.
It's not impossible but it ma take time
Kodi on wiiu would be awesome but I don't see this happening soon if at all sadly.
Well most of the FFMPEG codecs are open-source, so most of the *hard* work seems already done for a software player.
Yeah, most (if not all) of Kodi is open-source. Anyone with sufficient experience (not me, yet) should be able to successfully port the code to HBL or RPX format.
True but the most important thing is we need devs to actually make it and they are all busy on other projects at the moment. Kodi is not of high priority to them.
You do realize kodi started on orginal xbox as xbmc.. Xbox media center
With Nettop style PC's and Android settop boxes been so cheap the Kodi team have little interest in hacked consoles anymore. Their no longer a cheap and easy way for the messes to use Kodi.
I doubt the Wii U will see a Kodi port, the Xbox 360 never did and was a lot more popular than the Wii U. It's not impossible, however i don't think anyone is going to take the time to do it.
360 was a lot harder to mod. But yeah official kodi dosent do homebrew to much any more
Yes I did captain Obvious lol
We *have* USB access.
Shhhh, don't tell pirates...
I se h264 library is pretty small, so we could get a video player sometime soon™ [hehehe, ™™™™] but that means h264 only. (tbh I don't really think I will get it to work , let's try...)
