Of course for the same reason Netflix and Prime Video will work, just remember to always use a wall plug and not the USB port of your TV to power the stick. Kodi is a question marks it's on what you have in your library, of course very high-compressed h265 videos won't play, but for me is has been more than fine so far
Well, my experience says otherwise, after a week of tinkering. It exceeded my expectations
(I expected a laggy interface but it´s smooth most of the time)
Tried with Kodi and SPMC and auto refresh rate works fine and, as far as I know, the cpu should be capable of h265 hardware decoding (basic compression, I guess). Perfect for the streaming friendly content in some Kodi addons.
Pleasantly surprised with this apparently limited hardware, no need for a Nvidia Shield (overkill for my needs)
