Kodi/OpenElec – Audio Visualization Tutorial

How to install Kodi/OpenElec audio visualizations.

I had a bit trouble to find those visualizations and install them, so heres my tutorial:


Here you can see a preview of the audio visualizations in combination with my Ambilight Setup.

Installation Tutorial

Download the repository.popcornmix.zip file and save it onto a usb stick / samba server.

Repository on Github: https://github.com/popcornmix/repository.popcornmix.storage/

Deeplink to the Zip file: https://github.com/popcornmix/repository.popcornmix.storage/raw/master/repository.popcornmix.zip

Install the zip file in system->settings->add-ons->install from zip file (don’t unzip the file!)

(if you dont find install from zip go a few folders back then you should find it – .. folder at the top)

If you are currently playing music in fullscreen mode you can press „m“ to display the music settings bar and on this blue icon you have to select shadertoy to activate it.

Thanks for the link to popcornmix repo. I installed shadertoy as a visualisation. It works fine but I can’t seem to find the option to switch to another visualisation you are referring to as „m“. I’m on rpi3 with kodi 16 and mimic skin. Any ideas?


I’ve gotten as far as unzip the file through the fire stick but after that it’s nowhere to be found. Looked under the music, add one and everything. I’m stumped what to do next and BTW I have the new updated Kodi program. Hope to hear back

Some of the presets won’t go fullscreen.


Thanks for the tutorial – got shadertoy all set up with my RPi3 and Kodi 17.3.

I did have a question about the background, lighting, though. Is that hyperion running the ambilights? That’s my setup, but hyperion (running on same pi as kodi) doesn’t seem to recognize the shadertoy visualizations. Works fine in Kodi for video, but not music visualizations. Any advice?
