CBRs and CBZs read on Pi through TV?

Tue Jun 21, 2016 9:13 pm

Is there a way to, like with OpenElec for videos, display CBRs and CBZs on the TV using Rasberry Pi 3B?
If so, what OS and/or programs would I need?

Thanks in advance!

I did not.
What does that do?
How would I install it?
Can I download it directly through openelec or do I need to use my pc?
Does it go on the same card or on a flash drive?
