Helper module for Kodi add-ons


Helper module for commonly needed tasks


08/18/2021 Forked from phil65 master prior to python3/future changes. Renamed addon, updated dependencies, adjust to latest kodi API changes. Updated version to 1.3.0 due to the significant changes (particularly name changes). Changed youtube.py to require YouTube api_key to be passed as argument. Hard-coded key no longer used. Resolved Kodi crash issue caused by a known limitation of numpy, which was indirectly loaded by another library, PIL. Forced numpy to NEVER be loaded. The use of numpy provided a small performance improvement.
