    VNC Addon works in LE 7.0, no problem.

    You look at System > Addons > Addons > Services.

    Furter thank you very much @kszaq.

    Yep, you are right. After updating from OpenElec to LibreElec vnc addon stopped working on my Wetek Play. I tried deleting and adding the the addon again via SSH connection. But that did not help either. Now I tried a regular reinstall of the addon as a ZIP-file and that worked.

    Again thanks to kszaq for this helpful addon.

    Hi, nice Addon. Need that to support my parents. Strange is that it worked first. just few days later I am missing the bottonm of the screen. Any idea?
    I use the kodi 7 RC and the addon 7.0.2
  • ozkaradagozkaradag Posts: 591WeTek Community Member
    It is not compatible KODI 17 a.k.a ELEC 8.0 yet.

    Found the problem. it seems the aml-vnc is starting to early and gets a console screen resolution.
    Any idea how I can delay the aml-vnc service?
  • strikegunstrikegun Posts: 4WeTek Community Member
    Sorry guys, I think I solved it on my own ;-)
    I edit the file ~/.kodi/addons/service.system.aml-vnc/bin/aml-vnc.start and put in a "sleep 10" to wait until kodi is full up running. That helped.
    So SUPER addon, that what I need to get kodi and openelec to my parents home ;-)

    Hi, will this work only on wetek. I have another amlogic device I'm trying this on. But not sure exactly how to set it up on my box. Is there any thing I need to change on my box? Do I need to change the port to 5900 in services section on my box. I tried that when trying to connect with realvnc viewer. It just keeps saying connecting and nothing happens.

    thanks for the help
  • strikegunstrikegun Posts: 4WeTek Community Member
    I run it on default 5900. I figured outm that tightvnc works best

    When i try to connect i get this:
    Error: Shell widget vncviewer has zero width and/or height
    running openelelec 6.0.3 and service.system.aml-vnc-6.0.2.zip

    Can someone point me in the right direction ??

    Try the "sleep 10".
    I use Real-VNC

    It doesnt work at ELEC 8.0.

    Plaese, new build for 8.0.

    Yep. Same for me. Desperately waiting for an updated version...

    I have uploaded a statically-compiled addon that should work on both LE 7.0 and 8.0 for all WeTek devices, including Hub and Play 2.

    Great news.

    Thank you mate.

    Great! It's working just fine. Again thank you very much!

    Hey!
    I'm running LibreELEC and I've installed the VNC Addon.
    When running the VNC Viewer I get the error "RFB protocol error: bad desktop size 0x0".
    I do see the password prompt though but I do not see the addon running in Addons / System.

    I read something about "sleep 10" in the aml-vnc.start file. Do you guys mean that I should just write sleep 10 somewhere in the code, or what?`

    Really need this one to work!
    Thanks!

    Oooh.. maybe this is because I'm running a Raspberry Pi. Do it even work on a pi?
  • kszaqkszaq Posts: 44WeTek Community Member
    This addon works only for Amlogic. For RPi you need to look for "Dispmanx VNC".

    Hi, I've just installed 7.0.3 on LE7.90.10A on WeTek Play 2 and input (keyboard) is not working, I can just view the screen? ... it is working now, maybe just some issue in the Estuary.
  • degsydegsy Posts: 14WeTek Community Member
    I have downloaded the files, what do I do with them?

    (apologies if this is a Censure newbie question)

    Hi, I installed this VNC server on my Wetek Play with LibreELEC, but as I try to access to it with TightVNC, I get "connection actively refused". Does anybody know how to solve this?
  • foxyboyfoxyboy Posts: 15WeTek Community Member
    Selfish i know but im looking to testout LE9.0.
    Any possibility of a LE9.0 release ? https://libreelec.tv/downloads_new/wetek-play-1/
  • ozkaradagozkaradag Posts: 591WeTek Community Member
    @foxyboy Yes, it is no problem.
  • fantasticnfantasticn Posts: 7WeTek Community Member
    Not working for me anymore with LibreElec 9.0. I tried RealVNC and Ultra VNC Viewer. Both connect to the LibreElec client but then only show black screen.
