Intel VAAPI howto with Leia v18 nightly based on Ubuntu 18.04 server

here's a way to install the TVH Addon by hand. It worked for me on Ubuntu Server 15.10 like described in the instructions by Fritsch.

Here is what you have to do:

git clone
git clone
cd pvr.hts && mkdir build && cd build
cmake -DADDONS_TO_BUILD=pvr.hts -DADDON_SRC_PREFIX=../.. -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=../../xbmc/addons -DPACKAGE_ZIP=1 ../../xbmc/project/cmake/addons

Addon-Folder will be build with the /home/"USER"/xbmc/addons clone

Simply copy this pvr.hts folder to /usr/share/kodi/addons (have to do it with root access)
You have to use this folder not the kodi addon folder in /home/"USER"/.kodi/addons as it is a system-addon
