I have a gbox midnight. Every time I try to play a video in kodi I get a message saying external player is active, click when playback has ended. Yet it doesn't play???? having a hard time understanding what is going on. Any help appreciated.

G box midnight has its own little xbmc version based on 12.2 or some other antiquated version, I would say offhand your hardware wasn't meant for kodi to be run on it.

Time to move along or use the version that was meant to be put on it or look into openelec which I hear is the way to go for those units.

I still have a g box sitting in the closet from years past, I don't think giving it away is even a good option. It's just a dinasaur now.

The box has the latest release on it. it is just since the update that this happens. I can play videos i download on the external player. Just can"t stream within Kodi. Very weird. Never had any issues before. Not a one. It is a quad core unit.

In my personal opinion, run it with Openelec, it works better, picture quality improved and hardly no issues. You do lose google play store but it is worth it.

the box will run fine on kodi but there is no need for a external player with xbmc/kodi on android any more,.

I have been trying to disable the external media player. Just when I think I have this done it still does the same thing. Weird it never had a problem before. it always played perfect in Kodi. Is there an addon player for Kodi? Any help would be great thanks. As for openelec don't have a clue where to find it or install it.
