Can I use Netflix on OSMC?(post 4)


#83

Apparently recent nightlies broke Netflix support. This should be fixed shortly.

There’s already a simple script for getting Widevine on the system in this very thread. See Can I use Netflix on my Raspy OSMC?.


#85

I get idea of giving proper reply for non manual readers. But as I said I had used Netflix on OSMC and then it broke. Now it just doesn’t work and even with OSCM version that did had Netflix running smoothly. I tried Amazon VOD and it also failed to run. So something is not OK with current OSCM and steps in this guide for Netflix.


#86

Netflix and Kodi v18 (also likely AmazonVOD) are all at very early Alpha (not even yet Beta) testing builds. Breakage is expected. Official and continuous support will likely not be provided until each and all components required by the feature have reached a stable release status. None of the mentioned components are developed by OSMC. We are unaware of any time frame for the release of these stable builds.


#87

OK, If there will be working version of Netflix please post feedback when that day comes.

#89

It should be fixed in the next day or so.

The problem is with Kodi. LE added a patch to temporarily resolve this problem, but it’s just a workaround.

We prefer to wait a couple of days for it to be fixed proper.


#90

OK, please post when you have a fix


#91

Just follow nightly progress.

I have pinged @gmc now so should be in the next build on Mon.


#92

I’ve added fix to the next nightly which is building now.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hello everyone, I followed the instructions and managed to install Netflix on Vero 4K after a couple of “sad faces” and I can login in now.
But I can’t get past the navigation menu :frowning:
If I click “Trending now” or “Popular on Netflix” nothing happens, I can only go back.
Any idea how to solve it?

Edit: I managed to solve it by updating libbluray like gmc wrote on the RPI section :slightly_smiling_face:

Thank you guys


#99

@joakim_s - any suggestions for me based on this log? Netflix works up to the menu, but when a program is selected the addon either crashes or the program won’t load.


#100

In my experience, when the menus work the plugin is often not to blame, but libwidevine or inputstream.adaptive. It’s hard to speculate. Since this is based on nightly’s breakeage is expected from time to time. Seen there has been some updates in gmc’s leila threads.


#101

Thank you. I’ll check out the other messageboards and poke around.


#102


This fix should work


#103

thanks, hope they will update the repository to include the new version soon
