I asked this question over in the kodi forums and haven’t gotten a reply. It involves tvheadend, so maybe people are thinking it’s in the wrong place, but it’s really more of a kodi web server question, so maybe somebody can help me out here. I’m trying to access local icon files on my RasPi2 with the tvheadend interface. It wants a URL path, but I can’t figure out how to format that or make the folder accessible to the webserver or both.
I have activated the kodi webserver under services and I have checked both options in the “remote control” menu as well. I manually set the port to 8080, since I read that linux sometimes has problems with low numbered ports (like the default 80). I’ve tried about a zillion path variations, including converting the linux filesystem path to base64.
I can access the default http UI and have even tried out other web addons, but none of them seem to give me access to the local filesystem, even though I have added the relevant folder as a media source in the file manager.
In case you couldn’t tell, a lot of this stuff is over my head, so if anyone can offer any guidance on this, it would be much appreciated.
Thanks so much! I’ll try it. I read old posts about people setting up webservers to host their icons, etc, so I guess I was making it a lot more complicated than necessary. I’m assuming that I should change the icon name to exactly match the channel name?
