jurialmunkey's skins are very light resource wise.
Actually, it's not too bad on Zdmc.
Aeon Nox Silvo skin for Nexus 20 is now officially out and it supports HDR10/HDR10+ and Dolby Vision tags. I’m hoping Zidoo will now release ZDMC 20 Nexus.
Yeah. What I did is limit my menu and widgets in my homescreen. I also removed my OMDb API and enable Trakt & TMDb ratings only.
I couldn't use kodi without OMDb, once it loads all the ratings you are good for a while. I have not added my tvshows to ZDMC yet.
As I would like ZDMC to be more responsive...I did that. I have some widgets that change everytime I think that effect performance compared to local library? I also not using blur background - less work for TMDb Helper.
I do not have widgets loaded and no blur used either
So I installed both regular Kodi Nexus and ZDMC on the z9x at different times and both kept crashing the machine and rebooting. Before that happened both times, I installed jurialmunkey's skins from zip file but the life of me could not figure out how to use it - in skins I only saw the two default ones listed. What am I missing? And should I even try if both zdmc 19.4 and kodi 20 keep crashing the Z9X anyways?
Use ZDMC 19.4 and install his repo, and then install the skin from his repo.....that's what I did and no crashes.
Try to upgrade your Nexus to the latest nighty.
Ok, I think for when using ZDMC i've settled on Arctic Zephyr 2 Resurrection - it's lighter and less bugs.
For anyone that wants to take a look: https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=362941
anyone using zdmc with plexkodiconnect plugin? On first check, it doesn’t seem to use the zidoo player, despite it merely being a way to import the database from plex into kodi and keep them in sync. But i didn’t bother to set up direct play so i suspect that could be the issue, i just don’t want to waste my time. If anyone has tried it and got it working, that’d be good to know!
Yes, it works, I use it with DirectPath'.
It plays my content with both player, external and internal (Zidoo player & Kodi/ZDMC player).
I wasn't able to get it to work with the Zidoo player. I tried changing preferred playback method and tested 'Try Direct Path' and 'direct play' in PlexKodiConnect settings, but both used the ZDMC player and not the Zidoo player. Was there something else you did or are you mistaken?
Tested with ZDMC 19.4 and croneter 3.7.2. The option 'play with external player' was enabled in the ZDMC video options.
No, that's all.
Do you use a skin, that can cause the problem?
I may be dumb as dirt but I cannot for the life of me figure out how to put on diff. skins like this on my Kodi. I installed the Kodi you linked above, Kodi 20 I believe and installed the zip file for both Arctic Z2R and jurialmunkey one but they do not show up under skins - what am I doing wrong? TIA.
Not sure if they work under 20, as I use ZDMC 19.4.
Download his repo here: https://github.com/heppenowski/repository.heppen/raw/main/repository.heppen.zip
Go into Kodi, addons and install from Zip file. Select the file you just downloaded (from wherever you have it stored) and install. Now, his repo will show under repo sources in kodi, select his repo, then look and feel, skin, and install Arctic Zephyr 2 Resurrection.
Once installed, you will be able to select the above skin under interface settings etc.
I thought I was on stock skin as that was recommended with the setup. I will test again later.
Sorry to ask again, but have you added other shares to ZDMC and are you sure that you're not playing other shares rather than the Plex shares. I didn't add anything other than the PlexKodiConnect and they all do seem to playback using the ZDMC player and ignore the Zidoo player using that plugin on the Z9X.
No, my content is only managed with Plex server, and my Kodi uses PKC shares only.
As far as I know,mixed shares (Kodi + PKC) are not good for Kodis database
