Kodi with ATSC3.0 AC-4 Audio/HEVC Support

Post by ferrellsl »

I've just completed a successful build of Kodi that supports ATSC3.0/HEVC/AC-4 audio. This is a 64-bit Windows build (Kodi 20 alpha from github) that has been tested on Windows 10 & 11 and with the latest version of NextPVR for the back-end. It works successfully with the ATSC3/HEVC/AC-4 broadcasts in the Phoenix area as well as standard ATSC1.0 broadcasts, but is untested in other cities. The user assumes all the responsibilities for correctly installing NextPVR and this build of Kodi. I'm assuming that anyone interested in testing it is already well versed with NextPVR and how to install the NextPVR add-in from within Kodi's add-on library. Be patient when switching between ATSC3 channels as it can take 10-20 seconds in some cases before playback begins.

Send me a PM if you'd like to test it yourself and I'll send you a download link.
