A major update will be made to Kodi, the media center software. The developers have now released version 20’s second alpha, which is called Nexus. This update includes bug fixes and new features.
It took two months for the alpha version to become available after the initial build was released. This was because there were still some changes in the background. The second alpha fixes numerous bugs and changes the program’s design. Animations have been updated so that an effect is displayed when an element has been hidden. The next box lists major bug fixes.
Important bug fixes
Developers have fixed a bug that caused stuttering while opening, closing, and reopening Kodi Android apps.
The program also includes a TrueHD solution. To optimize data throughput, buffers were reduced to a certain level.
Fixed some crashes that were related to H.265 video on Xbox.
Fixed bug that prevented remote filesystem thumbnails from being displayed.
BluRay playback problems can be corrected.
WebVTT bug fixes have been incorporated into the alpha version.
The CPython team also made bug fixes. The changes are only applicable to the Android and Apple versions of the app, as both operating systems use a different Python version.
App available for multiple platforms
You can download the media center software from Official Page to test the second beta of Kodi 20 Nexus. It is available for Windows and Linux as well as Android and Raspberry Pi. The tool is also available for the Xbox. The app must be downloaded from the Xbox Store for Microsoft console owners.
