LibreELEC (Libre Embedded Linux Entertainment Center) team released today a new maintenance update to their LibreELEC 8.2 “Krypton” operating system series to fix a critical bug.
LibreELEC 8.2.2 is the second maintenance release for the LibreELEC 8.2 “Krypton” series, which is based on the Kodi 17 “Krypton” open-source media center, and it’s here one month after version 8.2.1 to fix a critical bug in the FFMpeg multimedia backend that prevented users from enjoying 3D movies.
Users who want to watch 3D movies are recommended to manually update to LibreELEC 8.2.2 using the manual update function in the LibreELEC settings add-on, as there won’t be any automatic updates available until after the Christmas holidays. If you don’t want to update manually, you’ll have to wait until December 27 or 28.
“LibreELEC 8.2.2 is a minor maintenance release to resolve an FFmpeg issue that allows the legions of 3D movie fans (both of you) to watch them again,” reads today’s announcement. “Older releases can be updated to 8.2.2 using the GUI manual update function in the LibreELEC settings add-on.”
2nd generation OSMC RF remote now supported by LibreELEC
In addition to the FFmpeg fix, the LibreELEC 8.2.2 update fixes an issue with WeTek Core that occurred after installing recent WeOS updates, disables the annoying flashing blue “activity” LED on the Odroid C2 single-board computer at users’ requests, and adds support for the 2nd generation OSMC RF remote.
No other updated packages or drivers, or any other changes have been included in this minor maintenance update as the LibreELEC stuff want to focus on their family and friends during the Christmas holidays. That being said, you can download LibreELEC 8.2.2 right now from the official website for your favorite embedded computer.
