I didn't say it was a problem, I said it's not what he's asking for.
And since you put it that way, not everybody likes a salesman who
tries to "upgrade" or "upsell" the customer to a bunch of stuff they
didn't ask for in the first place. Why is it so difficult for you to
accept there's an simple answer to his simple question that doesn't

I didn't say anything about hardware support.

I haven't said any solution to his problem is bad and I have said I
don't like anything. Once again I have to point out that Kodi is
unnecessary to play mkvs. It's idiotic to even question that fact but
if you really need "proof" then go ahead and install the vdr-mplayer
plugin and prove it to yourself. If you don't want to do that then you
can install the vdr-play plugin as an alternative.

Yes, I have answered that question. Feel free to refer to my previous
posts and perhaps pay better attention to what's being said.

Do you have any idea how completely foolish that sounds?

If I'm supposed to be impressed by that, it's not working. I've been a
VDR user for nearly 15 years and have never relied on anyones
pre-compiled packages. I've automated practically every aspect from OS
install to fully working VDR, including auto-configuring things
outside of VDR. So what, who cares? This isn't about how big my
johnson is or how tiny yours seems to be. This started out with a guy
asking a simple question - how can I play mkvs in VDR? If you want to
act butthurt because someone pointed out that all it takes is the
vdr-mplayer or vdr-play plugin then start a new thread about it. I
doubt he posted to the ML in hopes of seeing someone get all sensitive
over Kodi and start acting like its' honor must be defended at all
cost.. It's really starting to seem teenage girl'ish so maybe you
should give it a rest.
