Kodi (ex. XBMC) is the greatest open-source media center that runs virtually anywhere.
With our repository in place, you can easily install it on CentOS/RHEL 8:
sudo dnf -y install https://extras.getpagespeed.com/release-latest.rpm sudo dnf -y install kodi \ kodi-eventclients kodi-firewalld kodi-peripheral-joystick kodi-inputstream-adaptive
Breakdown of some packages installed:
kodiis self-explanatory; this is the main Kodi package
kodi-eventclientsallows your Kodi to be controlled via, e.g. Sony PlayStation 3 (PS3) Blu-ray Remote
kodi-firewalldallows Kodi to be accessed over the network
kodi-peripheral-joystickallows Kodi to be controlled with joysticks, over USB or Bluetooth
kodi-inputstream-adaptiveis required for some plugins which stream video data to your Kodi
Allow Kodi to be accessed by network
There are many remote apps that you can install on your phone to control media playback in Kodi.
For them to work, you have to allow network connections to Kodiю
Make sure you have configured your home network properly first, then:
sudo firewall-cmd --permanent --zone=home --add-service=kodi-eventserver sudo firewall-cmd --permanent --zone=home --add-service=kodi-http sudo firewall-cmd --permanent --zone=home --add-service=kodi-jsonrpc sudo firewall-cmd --reload
Control via Bluetooth
See [Wirelessly connecting your Sony PS3 Controller to a CentOS/RHEL Linux system] for connecting your joystick to Linux.
This will allow you to control Kodi using the gamepad. Provided that the
kodi-peripheral-joystick package is installed.
