Kodi 20.2 Release with Fixes, Features, & Update Instructions

Kodi 20.2

Kodi 20.2 has officially been released by the Kodi development team and is now considered the stable version.

The following article shows updates, features, and changes to this software which we have pulled directly from the official Kodi website.

We also provide instructions to update Kodi on any device including Firestick & Android TV Box.

IMPORTANT NOTE – TROYPOINT has not thoroughly tested Kodi 20.2 with various addons and builds just yet.

If you’re happy with your current version of Kodi, we suggest you continue using that as the updates in Kodi 20.2 are minimal and you probably won’t notice a difference.

Below are the bug fixes and new features pulled directly from the official Kodi Website.

Kodi 20.2 – New Features, Fixes, & Updates

Release Notes

Audio

An assortment of E-AC3 related fixes were backported.

Estuary

A fix to the Music Viz screen has been made by @enen92 in an endeavour to chase that elusive target of perfection
Fixes to the seekbar timer when seeking.

Game/Retroplayer

A fix to a crash by memory exhaustion when some emulators are used.

General

A whole assortment of fixes were made to fix building Kodi with GCC13.

Platform Specific

Android
A fix for a crash that occurred when >100 jobs where scheduled for the Android TV recommendation channels.
For some old Android devices that had both MediaTek and Google decoders for some media, a preference to using the Google decoder was put in as the MediaTek decoders fail to play back audio in encrypted streams.

Linux
A PR was reverted that fixes some Linux setups to use the more generic library (GL) rather than the specific GLX library.

macOS/iOS
Fix speech recognition not working.

Windows
Fixes to HDR playback when windows was already in HDR mode.
A backported fix for a potential deadlock for Xbox users when using pixel shaders and SW decoding.

PVR

Fix crash on saved search.
Fix last opened group not always restored on Kodi startup.

Python

@garbear has backported a fix for setting Picture and Game info via infotags.
GameInfo has been added to the Player class to allow get/set GameInfoTag data.
A fix was backported that mainly affected Linux platforms: the path used when searching for modules was appending Kodi script paths at the end of the list, and therefore could potentially find system Python scripts/modules instead of Kodi-specific scripts/modules

Video

Fix watched/unwatched status not taken into account for items not added to video library when creating playlists.
Fix missing watched/unwatched status in Playlist window.

  1. Can’t get any build for Diggz.when I try to add it only baldeze comes up but nothing for xenon builds. I don’t understand what is going on.

  2. Hi have kodi with the crew downloaded i cannot get back to kodis main screen it goes straight into the crew no matter how i try with the options under the crew ie file manager on the crew page i cant go back help please

  3. New to this tech stuff, recently got rid of Direct TV after being w/ them since they bought out Primestar (bout 27yrs) bill just kept going up no loyalty to loyal customers so the GONE?
    I got a firecube and a friend said I need to get a VPN so I did. Q: I have no clue what a real debrid is but I have read that they don’t work with a VPN so what do I need a real debrid for since I have a VPN and is there any truth to them not working together…? Thanks

    1. You have no idea what you are talking about. Kodi with a real-debrid add on is phenomenal. I’ve never had an issue and real-debrid is dirt cheap and worth the minimal cost. Of course if you are trying to use anything on Kodi without real-debrid you will be dissapointed as the free sites suck

      1. I have 2 FireTV cubes & 3 FireTV Max4K sticks. I run Kodi on all of them, have never used Real Debrid because I don’t have any issues with the free sites. If I had to use Real Debrid I would because it’s peanuts compared with the $2,000 per year I was paying for cable.

        1. Same! I absolutely love Kodi. I have a couple of add ons that use to be my favorite and are working for others but stopped providing sources when trying to watch something. I wonder if anyone could help with that? If not I have add-ons that do work right so all good. I’m a single mom, cannot afford to pay for satellite and/cable. Also wanting to start educating myself since playing with Kodi. Any tips for beginner IT would be fantastic as well. ?

    2. I disagree… if you have the necessary resources to run kodi it streams flawless provided everything is set up proper and as far as the outdated part once again with clarity. How is it outdated as there has been several kodi upgrade/updates just since January 1 ???

      1. I have to agree, with kodi and no RD, you will get next to nothing. RD is great and is priced for any budget.

    3. Mike Bornholdt

      When you say stuff like that to people who have used Kodi and Real Debrid your credibility is in the toilet. Learn how to use it and then don’t post something about stuff you don’t know about. Shame on you!
