Can I use Netflix on OSMC?(post 4)


#63

a yes or a no would help. and because English is not my mother tongue. I just ask!


#64

You have to run Leia alphas (v18) for Netflix


#65

You’ll need xz-utils for the script to work:

sudo apt-get install xz-utils

#66

Meanwhile… To think I beat myself up for days wondering why the script failed to work. :grinning: Netflix is now working again. Amazon of course still having issues.


#67

added the install of xz-utils to the howto

Hi all, this is my first reply :slight_smile:.

I need some help with netflix running on raspi 3, please.
I followed the steps presented by @joakim_s and I already managed to run netflix addon on pi 3. I can log in my account and I can run a movie, the problem is that the movie only has audio and subtitles, the video appears in a strange way (switching between macro blocks, green and grey image). I have all the updates. Does anyone have experienced this problem?

Here is the log:

Thanks.


#69

This just a stab in the dark, but try to disable the OMX Player.


#70

Thanks for the tip @joakim_s.
It seems that the problem was the hardware acceleration of omx player. I disabled it and now the video shows correctly, the problem is that due to the software video decoding, in 1080p the CPU 0 and 1 are almost at 100% and the stream freezes a little bit. In 720p it runs smoothly. Maybe a new version of the netflix add-on will solve this issue.
Regards.


#71

Hi. I have follow your guide @joakim_s and all the time i get “netflix error” check the log for more information.
I searched the forum and no solution. The log all the time is the same:
File “/home/osmc/.kodi/addons/plugin.video.netflix/resources/lib/KodiHelper.py”, line 425, in build_profiles_listing

Do you have any solution?


#72

Have you installed Kodi v18 yet? Netflix doesn’t work in v17.


#73

Yes. Kodi 18 installed and all updates!
I followed the guide twice and all the time the same error.
I run OSMC.


#74

Hi. Thank you by your install guide.

I followed the steps and I have Netflix working on my Raspberry Pi 2. I only had an error about the osmc skin. No problem.

Now, I have a problem while playing a video. The video and audio is not synced, and the video plays about 10-15 fps .

Is the RaspBerry Pi 2 too slow for this?

Thank you.


#75

AFAIK decoding is done in SW (no HW-accel). Try 720p. IIRC people reported this working (but no 1080p).


#76

I Tried to config this on the addon, but didn ‘t find it. Should I do this at the osmc config?
I don’t remember, but I think my tv is not fullhd. I’ll give it a try tomorrow.
Thank you


#77

I’ve got Netflix running on a pi2 without problems, in configure under netflix addon you got “inputstream configuration” link, click that and you can setup if you want lesser resolution


#78

Thank you joakim_Sandstrom, it worked!

I must set up to 480p. My FTH connection is up to 50 Mbps, but the Raspberry pi 2 aparently doesn’t support 720p streaming no netflix…


#79

EDIT: (SOLVED) : Reinstallaing the addon again did the trick, is now working fine. Thanks for all.
I’m followed your guide @joakim_s the addons installs just fine, and when running it and entering the credential details it gives me the following error:
No JSON object could be decoded

Is anyone having this error? I’m running a RPI2 latest OSMC build, and latest Kodi 18 build too.


#80

Thanks for your patience. I finally pulled the logfile together:
http://ix.io/Qv3

I’ve been able to stream on YouTube, but not Netflix, so it’s not entirely an internet connectivity issue.


#81

This guide worked perfect for me but I had such a hard time finding it hidden in the comments of a question. I feel like this deserves to be it’s own post


#82

hi there, I had netflix working perfectly than it broke… so I switched to libreelec, but I miss some proper debian features.

So I am back again to OSMC, Kodi 18 RPI 3, netflix is not working, followed this guide in every step.

it really works on libreelec.

Maybe someone can modify this one to easy getwidivine?

curl -Ls http://nmacleod.com/public/libreelec/getwidevine.sh | bash

Please does anyone have solution?
