Kodi 18.4 Final

do we have to wait for the August update for Kodi 18.4?

You’d need to wait for the next OSMC update, or build from source

As l mentioned in the July update thread I’m very much looking forward to the OSMC update that has 18.4 included. It should fix the disappearing aspect ratio issue for me

Yep, exactly what im waiting for!


I was using the test builds on my vero 4K, could you please help me what should be in the sources.list file just so i can go back to the stable release cycle? (I made many edits on it :()

Apologies for posting here, but the “testing” folder is locked.

Thank you!

Just removing the stretch-devel line.

Looks like you’ve been using @gmc test builds for Kodi v19.
We don’t recommend downgrading back to v18 due to database changes.

I have some issues with CEC, not sure how to fix it :frowning:

is there any way btw to downgrade without losing the other services running on the OSMC? (I have some custom installs that are running parallel to osmc)

libCEC is packaged separately, so it can be downgraded, but you’d need to know which version caused the issue and stay on this version forever, so it’s not ideal.

Where do you see that Kodi 18.4 is final?

Can’t find anything on kodi.tv, or their twitter page…

It has been released and branched.

And where can we “normal” people find that info? :stuck_out_tongue:

Besides here of course :wink:

Usually on the Kodi blog / forum. They are still releasing for some other platforms.



any info on how to compile from source?

git clone GitHub - osmc/osmc: OSMC (Open Source Media Center) is a free and open source media center distribution
cd package/mediacenter-osmc
make XYZ (where XYZ is target)

for 18.4?

You would need to bump the Git revision to match 18.4
