Kodi Integration Setup - Peekup - 2021-11-25

Hello,
Kodi Integration Setup utility no longer works on Windows 10, is there a new version? I reinstalled Windows Media Center 8.8.4 in Windows 10 v2004 and Kodi no longer launches from the Windows Media Center menu Sad. I found it very convenient with the remote control.

I have never heard of it. Can you provide the link to the website you obtained it from.

First, sorry for my bad english, i'm french.
Here's the link :


The exe file is no longer available, luckily I have it on my Giada PC where I installed Kodi.

When I start my PC, I press the Media Center key (green button) on my remote control, which launches Windows Media Center. All I have to do is click on Kodi in the WMC window to launch Kodi.
But it no longer works with Windows 10.

You are linking to a Youtube video that mentions XBMC 12 as the current stable version..? That is 9 years ago.

Windows Media Center is also a prehistoric software package. If that no longer works in Windows 10, then hopefully you are able to change the parameters for the Kodi application in WMC. Your Kodi in Windows may need a different application path in WMC?

No problems. I understood what you said, I just had never heard of the utility you mention.

From what I understand, you want to be able to start Kodi by pressing the big green button on the remote control. Currently, the only way you know how to do this is by going through WMC.
Is it preferable that you start Kodi directly instead of going through WMC?
I know other users have been able to map the green button directly to Kodi, but I don't know how to do that. Maybe @PatK or another member knows?

Do you use WMC for anything other than launching Kodi? As if it's only acting as a means to launch Kodi then take a look at Launcher4kodi see https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=136798


RE: Kodi Integration Setup - Peekup - 2021-11-27

Thank you for your answers.
Indeed, the video is dated. The exe file is called KodiIntegrationSetup, the tab in WMC is Kodi.
I installed Launcher4Kodi but problem with:
- back to the desktop when browsing Kodi.
-I uninstall it and reinstall it, and after a few seconds I have a black screen (like hibernation)

KODI into WMC,

Of course WMC is not supported in Win 10, so it is a hack to get it installed.  Plus MS, in their wisdom, discontinued the EPG .  That said, I think your best bet is to ask on "thegreenbutton" forum.

(And, Kodi does support the WMC PVR addon in Kodi 19 / Matrix)
