    I can absolutely agree with what tosu said. I think Kodi community needs a fork like FTMC !

    The FTMC is something a bit like Linux vs. Windows in some perspectives:
    • it uses less resources (CPU & memory), which means it supports older hardware.
    • It also supports older OS, so it's a savior for older ARM boxes laying around and being left behind by latest Kodi develompent.
    • Additionally, it has RK codec support integrated, so the performance for low-budget RK SoC devices is much better than with Kodi "vanilla".
    Wrapped up: it enables the low-end devices to still enjoy most of the latest multimedia and security technologies. Best multimedia soft for the poor...

    With SPMC development stopped FTMC is our best bet. So I hope there is still chance you will have some spare time.
    I am willing to help as far as my free time allows. I am a PHP/C++ developer, some Python knowledge, but with small to none Android development experience. So if that counts, I'm in
    Well you can have a go with it, the source is available in the 1º page
    But is getting to its limits.
    About my time.. its hard really it is when i started this i was unemployed ... so i had plenty of time for all, now im working and this work takes lots of my time(sometimes as long as 17h work...) and i have a family that i also need to attend to... so something need to be left behind and sadly is this since i had to choose, this or rom making and i choose rom making.
    That is why i open my private git with the latest changes i did, maybe someone want to continue my work

    • By removing the problem of the bluetooth and codec we can continue to use ftmc.
      If along the way we can fix some problem better. And if we can update the codec, we would have ftmc for a long time.
      I do not understand all this but if there was a small tutorial to be able to adapt ftmc to the new codec it would be very good. So FTMC will not die
      Could someone tell us if you can update the video codec? Maybe adding to the lib folder? Where do we find the codec?
      The andorid MX player works well with files that ftmc does not. In some mkv I have slowdown and delayed sound, in mpeg2 to 1080p sound cuts of 0.1 seconds every few minutes. I have AmLogic s905x and s905d

      Anyway, we are still hoping that someday you will have time to revive it and come up with a version about kodi18. It would no longer make sense to get her out of Kodi17.

        I think it would be better if Amlogic just started to support Kodi 18, then everything would just work.
        No need then for any amlcodecs anymore with all sorts of video bugs on different Kodi's.

        You can't just update a codec, Kodi consists of over 50000 source code files that all work together, you can't just replace a compiled file, it would fail to open and install.
        Kodi 18 also has a complete rewrite of the video engine, so it will be nearly impossible to port old Kodi 16 video code hacks to Kodi 18 and it would take a lot of time if someone manages to do it.
        You can setup FTMC or Kodi 18 with an external player like MXPlayer if it would improve video playback for you and sometimes it can help.

        • if amcodec support is important to some... why not just use the alpha version of spmc 17.6? seems like a good option

            Bad news. So, we should not buy tvbox with Amlogic chips, what tv box do we buy? nor Amlogic, nor rockchip.

            I have tried kodi 17.6, MyGica media center and I have the same problems. If I set and accelerate video amcodec, the image comes out with green and pink boxes. If I deactivate the acceleration amcodec the image slows down and the sound is advanced. I will try Spmc but I did it before installing Ftmc and I liked this last one, for me it is much better. Ftmc uses less cpu and memory.

            How can I choose to play with "external player"? I can not find it. At some point and leaving the button pushed appears 2 players but they are interns. One of them works and the other does not.
            I use addons that directly reproduce internet videos, via streaming or torrent, and this problem forces me to download the full video and store it. I lose the comfort of these functions or addons.

              I have tried smpc again. I remember because I stopped using it, because I could not browse the smpc menu while watching a background video. When I go to the media center menu, the video stops. This problem does not have kodi or ftmc.
              The problem that sound does not work with bluetooth speakers also has it. It seems that Ftmc inherited that spmc failure, kodi does not have this failure.
              Also, Spmc is slower, heavier, less agile. When you move the cursor with the command through the addons, the response is slow. It takes time to change. In ftmc it is instantaneous.

              But it works with problematic files. I use the last version that appeared and I leave it configured like this, activated the acceleration media codec, media codec (surface) and amcodec activated. If I deactivate amcodec acceleration, the video slows down as in Ftmc or Kodi

              Bad news, I tried kodi18 alpha and also has the problem with the video.
              Everyone has less Spmc.
              The developer has also abandoned the project and Spmc will not release new versions.

              I tried the reproduction with an external one but it is a limited option and it does not work for me. If I look for the video file with Mx and play, it works. If I look for it with ftmc and choose mx to play, the mx player opens but it gives me an error and it can not be seen.

              • Could anyone pleaep provide an instruction how to install ftmc as a system app?

                I have a lol of different Rockchip 3229, Rockchip 3228, Amlogic S812, S905x and S912 devices.

                On my rooted Rk3229 devices with FTMC and Android 6 everyevery works well. But on my unrooted I can only play x265 and 4k with internal players without sound.

                This is really annoying. So maybe even if the project is unfunfortunat not being continued someone could give a good inatrinstru to install FTMC as a system app and being able to play with internal players with sound.

                As a system app I understood that I can continue using rkcodec.

                Please provide this and I am sure you make a lot of people happy and the complaining will stop.

                Thank you very much for all the done and future support!

                Superceleron and mo123 were a stunning support-team for ftmc and everyone appreciate what you did for all the unhappy owners!
