The problem is also with Blu-ray menu (folder or iso), it shows the menu, you can not move the cursor and after a few seconds it freezes.

They worked perfectly in RC5.2 and now in the final version they fail.

Tested on Nvidia Shield with latest firmware.

Regards.

 Great, just warned because I had not seen anyone saying that the error is also in the blu-ray.

Thank you.

Please try the following build (now works for me):

64bit:
http://mirrors.kodi.tv/test-builds/andro...64-v8a.apk


32bit:
http://mirrors.kodi.tv/test-builds/andro...bi-v7a.apk


Remember that not all devices can run the 64bit version. Nvidia shield is for sure 64bit.

I have tried that version and now the blu-ray works perfectly, both the menus and the playback, change chapter while playing, etc. (tested with five different blu-ray).

I have tried several DVDs and now the menus already work without problem, but I have seen that then the reproduction does not work well in some of them (that used to work), what happens is that the menu works well, but then when I select a chapter or I select that it starts from the beginning it begins to reproduce, the sound does not work and after 10 seconds or so, the image freezes. I have seen that some of them worked but most fail in the same way, for example the famous Queen Wembley concert. Maybe it's another problem that has nothing to do with the bug in the menus, but in Kodi RC5.2 it worked without problem.

regards.

UPDATE: I've also tested with some mpeg2 videos extracted from DVD (.vob without recoding) and they work perfectly, with sound and without freezing.

 Hi Mochilote,

Really interested in your post, particularly you mentioned that Blu-ray iso menu works in android based Kodi. I knew that Leia introduced Blu-ray iso but I thought it was limited to Windows system due to BD-J Menu requiring Java run-time. Are you saying that all Blu-ray iso menu works in Leia from RC5.2. Thanks

I mean blu-ray that do not require BD-J.

Thank you very much, I was having same problem on my Nvidia Shield, Kodi cannot play DVDs after it got updated to V.18. Now after installing the one from your post, it is working fine, DVDs are playable.
Great work.

I'm able to select an item from the dvd menu and the video will play. So far the good news. The bad news is that the video plays with a lot of stuttering. It looks more like 5fps than 25fps. I'm using a Beelink GT1 Android device. This did not occur on Kodi 17.6.

Edit: Fixed by installing a testbuild that disables surface mediacodec for dvds by default.

I did a few more tests with several DVDs, the menus worked perfectly on all of them, but at least 75% of them had the problem that when playing the movie/concert/chapter there was no sound and 10 seconds later the image froze (not the application, I can stop playback).

Does anyone else have this problem?

I can generate a debug log if necessary, although I thought it would be something general that happens to everyone with this version.

 I can confirm that disabeling MediaCodec (Surface) helps a lot
