I've been using the Kodi add-on for Giant Bomb on my Raspberry Pi 2 for the past couple of years and find it's a great way to watching on my TV from my couch - RPi does HDMI CEC so I can control via the TV remote. But there doesn't seem to be much love for the platform - the official add-on is ancient (says the author is "Whiskey Media" for starters), and not much is happening with the unofficial one (https://github.com/jimporter/giantbomb-kodi) which has been broken for anything higher than "high" quality video for some time now.
Now 1080p60 video is happening but I'm missing out. The RPi 2 should be capable (actually, I should download a video from the site to verify this) but obviously the add-on is the limitation here. YouTube's not an option for me (yet) - the garbage app on my Sony TV only does 720p30 max, and Kodi 18 apparently supports MPEG DASH (what YouTube uses for videos higher than 720p30) but it's not stable yet.
Does anyone care about this platform anymore? Anyone else use Kodi for watching GB videos? I see a lot of talk about Roku and Plex but are these officially supported? I'm not sure how Plex would fit into my environment, and I use the RPi/Kodi as my DVR so would be nice to not add another device to my TV (Roku or Chromecast or whatever).
And is there any way to watch a premium live stream outside of a web browser?
