There are some codecs for which you need to buy a license, and put a key in /boot/config.txt. H.264 is included in the price of the RPi3, but not MPEG-2 (DVDs) or VC-1 (WMV), so even if you had MMAL or OpenMAX access, you'd need a license to h/w decode either of those two (viz, MPEG-2 or VC-1) formats.

Also, MMAL and OPenMAX do not work on 64-bit yet. Follow https://github.com/raspberrypi/firmware ... -190803961 for more info on that.

I just wrote a simple python program for omxplayer that scans my library and offer which movie to play. I gave up on kodi when it started to require 256 MB of ram. For a device such as rpi that has 1GB of ram that is a lot if you want to run other stuff as well. Basicly, it only adds some fancy gui and browse option plus addons for subtitles and stuff. I can live without that.
