Volumio Video Playback via HDMI


I just started with Volumio, so please accept my apologies if this is already asked. I’ve tried searching about it already but I didn’t see an answer. I’m running a build in my workshop and testing it now.

I just wanted to confirm that the current build of Volumio does not support playing videos over the HDMI port, right? So youtube videos, mp4 videos, etc do not show the video right? Just audio?

It would make total sense. Instead (or in addition to) the “Touch UI” to add the video playback to show full screen. Sure, we might have to run it on a full x86 device to get more power…


The easiest way to do this is to install the kodi add on. Kodi is very capable Open Source Media Management software that can play most common video codecs and can access different services via installable add-one as well.

Edit: here’s the link to find unpublished add-ons
