1gb Ram seems low. Can Kodi be installed?

Goodmorning @simdane,

The Dune HD Solo Lite is mainly a mediaplayer, not a streamer. It is optimalized for the playback of own content and is very good at it. For mediastreaming like KODI you could buy a Chromecast for a lot less. For Flawless, high-quality playback of advanced audio and vidoe files, I would suggest Dune HD.

Cheers! It should really be integrated. I haven’t downloaded video in two years, can’t see what use this would be?

Hi Dune Product Rep,  the product claim at the top right of the ad says “All the movies and TV shows you could possibly want, easily streamed through this 4K media player. Kicking back and enjoying yourself has never been easier.”  Your comment seems to contradict that.  I’m inclined gto agree with Simdane and Thuris – this product seems very out of date an behind the curve unless every streaming server, every proxy server and every VPN/VPS provider, and every DIY VPS/Proxy developer is shut down in every country with ‘open’ internet services.  Media and entertainment companies will have to embrace streaming and free content at the point of use and redesign their business models to create Revenue streams. And therein lies the truth about the type of box you are selling today I think.

HI @Tomcardiff

I believe there is some confusion regarding the term “streaming”. There are two ways of streaming, one being via your own local network, for example your computer or a NAS. As for the other way of streaming is via the internet. The media streamers as the name would suggest are there for streaming content online.

Where the Solo Lite is a Media Player which is optimized for playback of own content. There are however some online streaming services available such as Youtube.
