Re: Standalone Kodi vs Kodi on Raspbian

I was using NOOBS_v2_7_0 but there was no option to install anything besides Raspbian.

Standalone Kodi vs Kodi on Raspbian

Hi,

I tried to install OSMC but didn't succeed so I installed Kodi on top of Raspbian and set it to autostart.

Will there be any performance difference I may notice ?
