    Doesn’t allow me to add media on the same device (via the file browser)
    I only see the files of what I assume is the container Kodi lives in.

    20.1 please

    Thank you very much to the author, I found a bug where the jellyfin plugin does not work properly on this version, hope the author can help solve it. KODI 20.1 for Android works well with the jellyfin plugin.

  6. Tao

    I have encountered the same problem as wjq. The Jellyfin plugin cannot work properly on Kodi downloaded here. Both version 20.0 and 20.1 are like this. Attached are the relevant error logs, hoping to help you.

    I just aquire a qnap ts-251d. I have the dnla server running. Big question before I go farther.

    I have mkv atmos music files from various sources. The have both dd+ and truehd atmos stuff. The have an onyko 7700 5.1.4 system not with these inputs. Roku, Sony bluray, 4k apple tv(latest with direct ethernet), now a qnap system. There are issues with qnap hdmi input to AVR. But for here. If I get thru all this and install kodi, in the end CAN KODI BIT STREAM dolby truehd atmos directly to AVR. Not interested in transcoding… What file formats can it handle. OK now with dolby digital plus atmos files. Have test .ts files that steam truehd, but not the mkv files.

    Can anyone tell me they have done this?

    20.2, please

    I had similar problems for a different addon “Embuary Helper”
    I have kodi running on HD Station and after asking support on QNAP forum this is how someone replyed me and the trick fixed the problem:

    this is because Python PIL is not installed in HDStation…
    you need install it in SSH within HDSTation with admin account log in with SSH

    Enter in hdstation with ” /etc/init.d/HD_Station.sh attach ”
    Now you are in HDStation environment and you can use standard apt get command to install it

    should be: “apt install python3-pil”

    This isntalls Python and i’m now able to run everything without errors, hope it’ll work also for you

    20.2, please

  11. Ricarfo

    please update

  12. Tao

    Davide’s method is effective! After I entered the HDStation environment, I used the command “pip3 install -U six” to update the six module, and the Jellyfin plugin can be used normally. Thank you Davide! I hope this method can help more people who have the same problem.

    20.2 Please update

    Please, can anyone help me with debugging a log? https://pastebin.com/raw/V7v6Qx01 I installed Python PIL as Davide suggest, but it wont help anything. Error is still there and I cannot run some plugins at all. Thanks.

    • QoolBox

      we can help you , but support is only on discord channel

  15. WRCK

    Works great, except it’s using Python 3.6.9. For the SQL connector Python 3.8 (used by WatchedList for example) is needed. Can the Python version please be updated?

  16. tsothggua

    First I want to say, thank you. Keeping this repo up has been a great thing. Would it be possible for you to post the previous 20.x build for kodi? when I did an upgrade to 20.2 it stopped working. Sincerely, thank again for the work on these packages. For someone like me whose linux skillset is, to put it kindly, limited, it really helps.

  17. MQ

    Please add an option to migrate Kodi 19 or Kodi 20 apps to a different volume. It helps continue the media server function of the NAS while the primary volume drives or backplane have unrepairable/unreliable issues. Thanks.

  18. RV

    Hi, i don’t understand how to resolve the “error of Embuary Helper” that always appear in Kodi 20.
    If anyone can help, thanks.

    • QoolBox

      thank to log on discord for support

  19. Antonio

    With the latest version of urllib3 2.1.0 several add-ons break because of a feature introduced in python 3.7. Sad

  20. Ronald

    Almost all addons stopped to work
    On Qnap forum there is an open thread https://forum.qnap.com/viewtopic.php?t=172453

    @Qoolbox can you help with it? It seens to be a Pyrhon error , since all errors are Syntax error

  21. dadabear


    min Python3.7 required to run some addons (future feature). Now the function is corrupted on Kodi (19.5, 20.2).
    Is there any due date for potential fix? There is no relevant description how to fix. Thanks

    • QoolBox

      hi, it is a known issue… Pyhon depends from HDStation Environment who cannot be upgrade … Qnap R&D must update HDStation core to be able to run an higher Python Version…

  22. Pablo

    Hello everyone. I’m going crazy to run Kodi on Qnap, it turns out I’m getting a pytho 3.6 error. They can help me, I’ve been looking for information for weeks and I can’t fix anything. Thank you

  23. Alessio

    @Pablo, you shouldn’t have updated your addons, HD Stattion is based on an unsupported version of Ubuntu.
    Here you’ll find useful tips to downgrade your addons’ components to get them working again:
    There’s nothing that QoolBox can do until QNAP won’t release a new HD Station based on a new Ubuntu’s version

  24. yeraycito

    20.3, please

  25. Alessio

    For Everybody, on this forum https://forum.qnap.com/viewtopic.php?t=172453 there’s a fix for all incompatibility issues!

  26. Markus

    Thanks for providing us with this great package! May I kindly request an update to 20.3, since this build seems to include the long awaited fix for the external DVD drive issue. Thanks! M.

  27. ronald_apelbaum

    20.4 update please and thx for this great service

  28. David

    Can you update to 20.5 please ?
    Many thanks!

  29. David

    Knowing that 20.5 should be the final release for the Nexus line.

  30. 16677287
