Building from source

Linux / macOS

$ ./bootstrap
$ ./configure
$ make
$ ls

TIPS: If a warning about AC_CHECK_HEADER_STDBOOL has occurred, install gnulib and execute bootstrap with AUTORECONF_FLAGS option with gnulib's m4 directory (e.g. AUTORECONF_FLAGS=-I/usr/share/gnulib/m4 ./bootstrap)

Android ARM

Android NDK is required.

$ ndk-build APP_ABI=armeabi-v7a
$ ./jni/ APP_ABI=armeabi-v7a
$ ls



  • Visual Studio 2015
  • PowerShell v5
> ./build.ps1
> ls ./

TIPS: If a powershell warning about Execution Policies has occurred, run Set-ExecutionPolocy Unrestricted with Administrator privileges. After building this project, run Set-ExecutionPolocy RemoteSigned, please.

NOTE: PowerShell command 'Compress-Archive' creates broken zip file. Please unzip created archive yourself, and re-zip it with other compression tool.


$ ./bootstrap
$ ./configure --host=arm-apple-darwin
$ make
$ ls

NOTE: iOS targeted package can't install to Kodi for iOS with zip installation. You should build including pvr.chinachu addon.


  1. Build or download the appropriate version for your platform.
  2. Launch Kodi.
  3. Navigate to System -> Add-ons -> Install from zip file
  4. Select the zip file which you get in first step.

NOTE: In some cases, Kodi for android installs addons into non-executable device. As a result, you need to do something more. See wiki/android-installation.
