Madsonic KODI Plugin

  • Update for Build 5400
don't forget to set up your server info in the plugin settings.
by default it points at the demo server ( so you can try it out of the box.

you might get better results if you force using DVDPlayer.
if you don't already have a playercorefactory.xml in your userdata directory then make a file and add the following in it.

Code: Select all

    <rules action="prepend">
        <rule name="madsonic" filename=".*/rest/(stream|download).view.*" player="dvdplayer"/>
if you already have one, just insert the line:

Code: Select all

<rule name="madsonic" filename=".*/rest/(stream|download).view.*" player="dvdplayer"/>
directly after the <rules> tag.

see ... a_playback for more info on playercorefactory.xml

this is confusing to me : )

Song changing problem from XBMC Gotham remains.

Set play album -> 1st song no problems -> 2nd song not found -> 3rd not found -> rolls same way to the end of the album.

I would really love to use this add on in KODI but I keep getting the following error:

Incompatible Subsonic REST protocol version. Server must upgrade.

I get the error with both the demo server and my server.

Any suggestions?

Same problem reported, with a Subsonic server. I tried with a Madsonic Techdemo v5.1, but the add-on says 'time out"...

I can use to play audio fine, but when I play video it will hang. Thoughts?

Nope. This happens on my KODI install for both Amazon Fire TV (based on 4.4.2?) and Windows. I haven't tried any other OSes.

What I do find interesting is that if I set transcode to false in\resources\settings.xml then I can play videos. Unfortunately, since I'm playing a RAW video, KODI/my network cannot keep up.

This leads me to believe that video transcoding is to blame, but I have no idea how to further debug.
