Tutorial How to Install Yes Movies for Kodi

Updated 2017-05-30 to Version 2.0.1

Yes Movies is the new movies and tv shows add-on from the Mucky Duck repo, released just one or two days ago and will replace the now defunct MovieFlix.

I installed this add-on and tried out its functionality. For both TV Shows and Movies, you have selections based on 'Recently Added Shows/Movies, Most Favorited, Most Viewed, Most Rated, Country, Search, Genre, IMDB and Year'. Most of the movies and tv shows are in both HD and SD quality. So first impressions this add-on looks very promising.

I tried to select 'Movies->Country->IMDB Rating->Korea', I was able to find high rating movies and playback with HD quality as indiacated. I also able to find movies that are "no stream available" at Exodus or Spekto.

However, I encountered two problems with this add-on.

1) Page navigation is very slow when browse from one page to another. It took around 30s to switch from one page to anoter.

2) I could not get subtitle to work on this add-on. I have tried open-subtitle and subscene and a few others, all failed to display subtitle.

If you already have Mucky Duck repo installed then you can go ahead and install it from the video add-on section.

Tutorial How to Install Kodi 17 Krypton into Asus Tinker Board

Updated 18-05-2017

TinkerOS_Android V13.11.0.4 Released
1.Add ASUS wallpaper.
2.Add ApkInstaller
3.Fix volume consistent issue in setting and notification bar

In the last article I was using TinkerOS 1.4 Debian V1.4 on Asus Tinker Board. Things were moving fast for Asus team. They have released TinkerOS_Debian V1.8 (Beta version) and TinkerOS_Android V13.11.0.2 (Beta version) at the support website.

This time I am trying out TinkerOS_Android V13.11.0.2 (Beta version), then side load Kodi 17 Krypton. Most of the 1080p and 720p movies and TV shows are displayed at SD quality (not sure was that due to GPU issue). However, video quality is good for other apps (like iQiYi, Youku...), as well as downloaded files for 4K movies (there is a 4K app comes together with TinkerOS).

Latest news is that there is patch to the fix issue using librkffplayer.so from http://github.com/JamesLinEngineer/RKMC/tree/Jarvis/RKMC-Patches/rk322x/Android6.0 and display on FTMC (a fork of Kodi). I will try to explore this later.

Tutorial How to Setup and Configure YouTube Addons for Kodi 17 Krypton

Youtube is the official add-on from Kodi. Some of the add-ons install Youtube into Kodi for you. YouTube can be a greate source of streaming. You can discover many movies and tv shows that are difficult to find in other Kodi add-ons, especially non-english materials. With this add-on, you can enjoy unlimitted streams right from your TV screen instead of PC monitor and browsers.

However, you need to set up and configure YouTube correctly else you will ge error messages like “Exception in ContentProvider” and “Quota Exceeded”. This is because the API keys used in this add-on is capped by Google. Google caps API usage for their applications (such as Google maps, Youtube etc). So the solution is we generate our own API keys to avoid the capping.

Here is the article that guide you how to set up YouTube add-on with just a few simple steps. Actually we just need to generate an API key, Client ID (API ID) and Client Secret key (API Secret) from Google, then enter into YouTube Kodi.
