How do I get Hue, boblight, hyperion... to work with Mediacodec Surface?

You can now use the "RenderCapture" interface with Mediacodec Surface via Advanced Settings. This interface is used by the various ambilight-like addons to capture what is displayed.

Before you ask, this is not enabled by default because it will popup a dialog asking for permission to "take screenshots" (i.e. capture) at startup. You can choose the hide the dialog forever, though.

As 99% of the users do not use ambilight, it was not proper to force this dialog on them.

In advancedsettings.xml

<advancedsettings>
[...]
  <video>
    <usedroidprojectioncapture>true</usedroidprojectioncapture>
  </video>
[...]
</advancedsettings>
You can’t perform that action at this time.
