PDF Reader

Read your pdf's (ebooks) through Kodi

Image

PDF Reader is an add-on (image plugin) for Kodi capable of reading PDFs composed of images (e.g. scans, comics). It also serves as a module, so it can be called from other add-ons (see its API).

Limitations

Some of the known limitations are listed bellow:
  • Currently PDF Reader can only read pdf files made of pictures, since its operation method's consists of extracting pictures from PDF files.
  • Only JPG and PNG types are supported at the moment. If you want to add a new image type, just say.

At the moment when i click open pdf using openelec (x64 linux) that popup doesnt show me file directories to allow me to select a pdf. It actually says Program Addons" and that just lists the program addons. It did work when you first posted here so maybe something in openelec changed.

I would like to set a default pdf folder in the addon settings if possible so that when you click open pdf, you go straight to this folder.

Has there been a solution to this problem? I am having the exact same thing happen, except it has never worked on my OS 10.9.5 Kodi install.

Thanks!

Updated to kodi (again openelec x64) and still have this issue.

Also, when it did work, for the pdf files that i tried it didnt load the pdf fully. Think it loaded the pictures etc but not the text.

Hi i96751414,

Thanks for this addon, works great for viewing PDF's from my addon.

Is your repo still online? The link in the first post is dead. In the meantime I am hosting this addon in my repo.

Also, when calling this addon from a video addon a different method is required due to different content types (images wont display in a video plugin):

Code:
pdf_url = 'plugin://plugin.image.pdfreader/' + '?' + urllib.urlencode({'mode': '1', 'url': 'file_path', 'name': 'pdf_name')})
xbmc.executebuiltin('ActivateWindow(Pictures, %s, return)' % pdf_url)

Thanks again.

Hello... I am also attempting to locate the PDF Reader add-on and installation. I attempted to install teeedubb "my repo" file (by the way, thanks for posting teeedubb). I encounter a "structure error" that prevents installation. Any suggestions or alternatives suited for a noviceHuh? Thanks, again! Jake
