Qjoypad[edit]

Because we use external mpv player in kodi for HW acceleration we can't use the native kodi joystick support. (to stop-pause-rewind etc) To solve this we have installed qjoypad. This program maps button presses to keystrokes so it also works in mpv player.

The default keymap file is called
kodi-gamepad.lyt
and can be found in
/home/pi/.qjoypad3

By default its setup to work with a snes usb pad and should work out of the box.

ps3 and xbox360 pad keymaps can be found in
/home/pi/.qjoypad3

just rename the file to kodi-gamepad.lyt and your gamepad should work in kodi and mpv player.

If you want to add or customise a keymap, start desktop and open games/qjoypad

you can then just map your controller the way you want. Just make sure you save it as
kodi-gamepad.lyt

more info can be found here http://qjoypad.sourceforge.net
