XBMC (Kodi) on Xpenology

Question

...

 

Has anyone build a XBMC and/or Kodi VM on the NAS, using the platform as a central place to run PMS, XBMC and or Kodi.

PMs is great for TV series and movies, but seems XBMC + AddOn's is the better option for sport streaming.

It has a Video output, yet, like most Mobo's. same as most XPenology NAS's, it does not have a dedicated GPU.

 

XBMC/Kodi is just a Media server like Plex, wondering if anyone has build one on the XPenology platform, most likely inside Docker.

just because the isn't a dedicated chip does not mean there is no gpu, the arm cpu can't do h.264/h.265 decoding thats a task of the gpu and depending of the "chip" used for such small low power systems there are differences depending mostly of the gpu, i use a odroid-c2 instead of raspi, this one (amlogic s905) has a better gpu then the raspi, also most "problems" with open source on this arm systems are around the gpu drivers and the fact that there are usualy not opne source

the question about xmbc in our case would be - does kodi work headless (without a dedicated output/gui), the way dsm is made seems not to offer the option for a local gui (like its done on asus nas systems using kodi)
