oh what a dissapointment after reading this post. I bought my AS6302T just for two reason.
1. has a HDMI plug
2. Kodi
3. Backups

Ok mine came with Kodi but it won't install the plugins.

Now both are useless unless I have to re engineer the old Kodi installation etc etc then later flick of a button Asustor could stop all that for me in the future.
What a dissappointment this was. I already had a MeCool box where I had my Kodi and worked fine.

So all the apps in Kodi IMO is BS and duplicatesof each other.

First of all you must uninstall the following apps from that: (if you uninstall this it will also remove almost everything necessary)
asustor portal
remote center
web browser

After this you should download the following apps from the asustors website. ( )


0010_999_1518494437_soundsgood_2.1.0.r830_x86-64.apk (its opcional but if you wants to use the soundsgood you must download this one also)

If you have everything, you must install them manually one by one , its important to manually install because if you try to install them from the app central it will update the to the latest which will have no sound on the KODI.

Here are the install sequence:

web browser
remote center
as portal

and soundgood if you want it.

If you done everything well you can see 3 available updates in the app central (, ffmpeg, soundsgood) BUT DON'T UPDATE THEM because if you do it you'll have no sound on your ac3/dts movies!

This solution works well for me, but as i can see don't have so many time since maybe a future update will cause more complications...

As to myself i will buy a separated movie player for example a Zidoo X9s, or an Amlogic S905X device (its bloody cheap and works pretty well with libreelec) .
Until now i had a plan to upgrade my AS5104T nas to a new one which capable for 4K video play but without KODI its absolutely meaningless.

Thank you for your instructions.

I just want to confirm that if I follow your steps, I should be able to play video files (mainly mp4 or mkv) with sound right? I think since early 2018, Kodi couldn't play most of my video files. I remember someone mentioned it has something to do with the Kodi 17.x version, not sure if it has something to do with the licensing issue.

Test this !

ADD UPNP1 and configure video directory files

In KODI add UPNP source

system > media settings >> manage sources >> videos >>ADD sources >> Browse >>UPNP devices > and choose ASxxxx your Upnp sources

to view AC3 video choose ASxxxxx

Download this file :
and read the readme file. I updated firmware and all apps to newest version and copy the file in .zip afterwards and it work :D

Hope that Asustor will not block this in future...

It perfectly woks for me ! Many many ... many thanks to you and your german friend !!!! I am in the last update of all Applications and firmware , and the simple copy of this codec file in Kodi's appropriate directory with winscp is the only thing I have done and the sound came back !

I also tried this method, and it's OK and safe.

If you don't want to do SSH copy, you can try the followings POST. I just package that file into apk for manually install it from App Central.
