kodi (SOLVED) in Linux Posted July 14, 2016 · Report reply don't see why not. way i look at it is they are both front end media players, used to play all your media easily. both play anything on your pc, both can be setup to stream content from the net, both can be setup to record things. only real difference i can see is mythtv needs a dedicated backend to start with before it will work whilst kodi doesn't. think of it like this ubuntu is the same as suse, both are linux os.
