Indeed this is only necessary when building plugins for Kodi 16 (Jarvis) which is obsolete more than a year now. So from my point of view this package can go.

Hello Bevan, this is still useful or can be deleted?

Please also add 'armv6h'.

With an Mpeg-2 license this even works on a Pi1.

@jmason: Thanks for the hint! I just added it.

I've successfully installed this package on RPi2 as required for Kodi, which also requires kodi-platform-git ( The latter PKGBUILD specifies:

arch=('armv7h' 'i686' 'x86_64')

whereas this package specifies:

arch=('i686' 'x86_64')

RPi2 is ARMv7 so I was a little surprised that it installed. Does that make sense and should "arch=" be updated to include it for clarity anyway?

@ogarcia: You are right. Thanks for the hint! :)

I do several tests and I think that you can remove the libplatform conflict, cause libplatform official package is really 'libp8-platform' and you can have installed libplatform and libplatform-legacy together.
