Arriva Kodi 19.1 Matrix con una valanga di correzioni di bug

Kodi 19 Matrix stabile

A distanza di alcuni mesi dal rilascio di Kodi 19 Matrix arriva una nuova versione di questa popolare soluzione dedicata agli utenti alla ricerca di uno strumento per soddisfare le proprie esigenze in ambito multimediale: stiamo parlando della versione 19.1.

Le novità della versione 19.1 di Kodi

Non aspettatevi rivoluzioni, in quanto la nuova versione di Kodi non introduce funzionalità inedite per gli utenti, essendo dedicata alla risoluzione di diversi bug riscontrati nella precedente release e, di conseguenza, al miglioramento dell’esperienza complessiva garantita.

Le principali feature di questo popolare software open source sono state migliorate o aggiornate, dalla riproduzione dei video e i sottotitoli ai crash PVR, senza tralasciare alcune piccole modifiche all’interfaccia.

In questo aggiornamento non mancano alcune correzioni specifiche per determinati dispositivi, come ad esempio i problemi di condivisione SMB su Android e le schermate nere durante la riproduzione su Windows 10.

Inoltre questo update fa sbarcare per la prima volta Kodi su Xbox: ciò significa che chi utilizza una console per riprodurre i propri film e programmi preferiti può finalmente scaricare la nuova versione del programma dal Microsoft Store (l’app Xbox verrà aggiornata automaticamente dalla versione 18.9 alla versione 19.1, e, pertanto, alcune estensioni potrebbero smettere di funzionare).

Questo è il changelog di Kodi Matrix 19.1:

Xbox specifics

  • This version also brings 19.1 to the Xbox – while 19.0 has been in the Microsoft Store since launch, this was Windows-only while we found a way to adequately test the new release on Xbox. We’ve fixed that now, so Xbox users will automatically upgrade from 18.9 to 19.1 if you’ve got auto-update enabled. It’s worth mentioning that there’s a known memory limitation – present in 18.x as well – that causes Xbox application crashes with 4k content, so please be aware.

Potete scaricare la nuova versione attraverso il sito ufficiale, ove troverete tutte le piattaforme supportate.
