Hello.
I have both kodi and gotham xbmc.
I have tweaked them the way I like, but now that minix X8-H Plus supports vidon xbmc, I want to use this.
What is best method to backup my settings, skins, library from gotham and kodi, and apply them into vidon xbmc?
I hope this is possible, as I don't want to redo everything.. ☺
Thanks

Thanks for quick response. ☺
I did see that plug in and tried it.
But was worried that if I select backup skins, library, settings and restore them on vidon xbmc, that the program Files would be overwritten with kodi files.
Therefore would mess up the vidon xbmc.
Maybe when it backups it does not copy the actual xbmc program Files?
Does it maybe just copy settings and external stuff?

Thanks

No, it doesn't copy the program files but it copies all the USERDATA files.

 

If there is a conflict in these files between the versions, you may need to do some adjustments.

 

One example is the "Database" directory as different versions of Kodi/XBMC use different database numbers but there are workarounds for this.
