Release ezhttpd - A very simple file server for serving media to Kodi that Just Works
I have loads of videos sitting on various PCs on my LAN I wish to stream to my Kodi box, but getting Kodi (on Raspi) to connect to Windows file sharing has always been fiddly and difficult and I have never gotten it to work past Windows 7. So I came up with ezhttpd, a tiny http server in a single small binary that requires no configuration, no installation, takes minimal resources and most importantly provides Kodi with file sizes and supports seeking during playback. Just throw it in your /Videos/ folder, run it, and add the URL to Kodi.

I provide a Windows binary here, but if you wish it compiles just fine on macOS and Linux as well. Source code and documentation are here.
Thank you for sharing this, effective and good server!

This is my first time I've seen code language GO and I am impressed.
Did you just import the "http" from a repository and wrote 41 lines of code to get in goal? Smile
Compared to dot core with a 50MB++ for a simple webservice (gotten better over the years...) and several lines of code for the same.
This is great!   

I have been having big trouble with network speeds to Kodi Android. SMB being the worst 6.5MB/s  NFS 10MB/s  FTP 23MB/sec 

HTTP is the fastest at 34MB/s

I don't seem to be able to delete files from within KODI by using anything but SMB, any way to fix this?

Thanks again!
This tool is amazing and really very fast for sharing files in my local network at home (on a debian server ) 

Big Thanks !!!!
