TeamViewer available for RPI2 and RPI3!

anybody have a clue on how to get it to work properly with OSMC/KODI?

Nice hopefully it will work with osmc

System Requirements
Raspberry Pi 2 or Raspberry Pi 3
(Raspberry Pi 1 and Zero currently not supported)
Raspbian 8.0 Jessie with X-Server or Framebuffer VT

OSMC doesn’t run Kodi on X11. Not sure about Framebuffer VT.
But anyhow until that happens you still could use VNC on the Pi

I created a addon for Kodi for the Raspberry Pi that lets you control it remotely from VNC.

a little info on how that works?


It takes a picture of the screen every 1/2 to 2 seconds and then sends it via VNC. The script is written by hanzelpeter and is called dispmanx. I put the script and the libraries it needs into a Kodi addon.

Dispmanx is a windowing system used by Raspberry Pi.

We already have a vnc server and how to which leverages dispmanx and uses libvnc to make this compatible with vnc clients. There have been a great deal of optimisations done to make this run smoothly

It seems like your addon may use a similar (but less maintained) approach



not able to use at least password to connect or any form of security makes it a no go for me.

Patrik’s VNC improvements, as recommended in our HOWTO allows a password to be set.

Well while there are ways to set a password generally VNC is designed to be used only in the LAN. If you want to use it remotely you should tunnel thru ssh or use openvpn
