[ale] OT: Kodi fails on video.



Actually I'll take that back. I grab the url from kodi.log and loaded it in
VLC. Video is 1080 audio is still without narrator's voice and there is no
additional audio tracks.

Looks like they posted the video mixed without the voice. I'll not blame
the RasPI anymore :)
