    Hey LordDorian! Great thing, man :)

    Funny thing is that somebody else is working on the same at the same time as you are: [WIP] ConnectControl for Spotify

    Perhaps you could benefit from each other during this early stage! Really glad to see that the community is putting some effort in Spotify for Kodi finally :)

    I double checked everything did a few nmap scans, no issues at all. They have closed all their holes and issues. One thing that I did notice, it's not a PureVPN issue, is that it takes about 5 mins after you connect for the IP to report correctly. The same issue happens with PIA as well.

    I also tried to remote access in from some of the servers I have up at a data center, I was not able to SSH or web browse the ip at all.

    Absolutely not the case. Perhaps they enabled their paid firewall extra addon for you for some days in case you complained about their security towards the support chat (was the case for me). But then they will disable it without any warning in some days or after a week again.

    If your vpn connection is established on your LibreELEC device without any iptables rules (see here: thread-2517.html?highlight=vpn), then at least your libreelec webserver port 8080 and ssh 22 is accesible from everywhere by everyone. Just tested it some minutes ago. Of course only if you have the webserver running (for e.g. Yatse remote) and SSH enabled. But anyways... the purevpn servers pass any connection attempt and ssh login (which is always root:libreelec) without any security.

    just do a "curl" on your libreELEC machine and then open the reported IP:8080 in a browser.

    Setting up the iptables like this solves the issue:

    1. # perform "systemctl restart iptables.service" after editing rules
    2. *filter
    3. -A INPUT -i tun+ -m state --state ESTABLISHED,RELATED -j ACCEPT
    4. -A INPUT -i tun+ -j DROP
    5. COMMIT

    Actually jg555, you shoudl read that thread and work out if you're exposed, espeically if you're using your modem/router as the VPN.

    In case he uses his modem/router he'll probably be more on the safer side, as there might be a default iptables config or so, that will protect his network. It is LibreELEC which is a bigger concern without doing the proper steps.

    Why do you need this? You already have Spotify Connect Web.

    Perhaps this addon does not require the appkey? Or what is the aim and benefit of this new addon? I am also interested in the motivation of this.

    In the long term it would be interesting to have spotify integrated in LibreELECs/Kodis music interface, so that you can see the current track title and so on on your TV or connected GPIO LCD.

    I have my own vpn server (windows 2012 R2) and i only know how to connect to this vpn server with those 2 packages installed. I have a s905x box working with libreelec on it, but i need to connect to my vpn server. I have this working with raspberry Pi 2/3, but i need to have it working with an AMLogic box, because of the power of the box! The install of LibreElec is really great and very easy to install on such box, but now i need just these packages installed..

    The same with openelec.. also closed.. i have then osmc which is open, but i can't install it to a s905x box..
    so, what options do i have more?

    hope someone can help me?!

    Since it is even your own server, the easiest and best option you have is:
    Reconfigure it to OpenVPN instead of PPTP. there is absolutely no way you will get PPTP on LibreELEC.

    VPN Mgr will only work with the paid account anyway. And he's asking about PPTP, not openvpn which isn't supported on LE (hence the request I guess)

    The OP is about OpenVPN as far as I see:

    It's an OpenVPN, can be set up as TCP or UDP

    I guess the guys try to get the free account working here, which won't happen.

    Repo is the same. It's a total mystery to me how Kodi recognises that updates have happened. I've had a box ignore the fact that I pushed an update, yet all of my other boxes have noticed and installed just fine. Reboot your machine, see if it notices, otherwise be patient.

    Weird... Once I read yesterday night, that you pushed the new version to repo, I've looked for it 2 hours after your post (about 12 hours ago). It wasn't there. So I've refreshed your repo through context menu. Still 3.1.1. Then I've uninstalled your repo, rebooted and reinstalled it: Still 3.1.1.

    Now 12 Hours later I did all this again, and still after reboot and installation of your repo, there is still 3.1.1. I'm on LibreELEC Jarvis, does that matter?

    Hmm... checking your github page: GitHub - Zomboided/xbmc.zomboided.plugins: Data for Zomboided Kodi repository
    it shows v3.1.1 and no 4.0.0, so where is 4.0.0 hidden then?

    what files does the service provide you, to connect to the VPN service?


    • *.ovpn file?
    • ca.crt ?
    • ta.key?

    Is there a download link, you could point us to, to see what windscribe provides for connection setup?

    I've checked their website, ca.crt und ta.key can be downloaded there. The only thing you guys need is the "*.ovpn configuration file". As soon as you have this (and you have got login data / user and pass) , I think I can help you to set up VPN Manager for OpenVPN.

    To get the ovpn config file, you need to buy an upgrade account, apparently: OpenVPN Config Generator - Windscribe . Looks like you won't be able to do it without this.

    4.0.0 has just been pushed on the repo and on GitHub.

    It'll update VPN providers from GitHub directly without having to update the add-on (to get new VPN provider updates, just re-validate the connections again)
    And it'll update itself in about 5 seconds rather than about 5 minutes (which was really painful), so I'd really advise moving to using my repo and using auto update now.

    It forces you to re-validate the connections on install if you were using it previously, and it's a big change to the way that the VPNs are connected so there might be some bugs. I think it's a big improvement generally though, and I've tested this one myself for a couple days and shaken out everything I could find.

    My LibreELEC shows in your Repo only the version 3.1.1. I've updated and reinstalled the repo, but still 3.1.1. Did you introduce a new repo or so, which I have to install to get the new 4.0.0 version?

    Thanks in advance


    I install the LibreELEC-Odroid_C2.aarch64-8.0.0 release on my Odroid C2, and the module gpioplug-ir-recv is not present. So impossible to use the IR on GPIO.
    I test with the IR on the board and that work, but is it possible to set the repeat timing?


    It is not just the module: gpioplug-ir-recv missing. It is also the dependent module: modprobe options missing:

    1. LibreELEC:~ # modprobe options gpioplug-ir-recv gpio_nr=238 active_low=1
    2. modprobe: FATAL: Module options not found in directory /lib/modules/3.14.29
    3. LibreELEC:~ # options gpioplug-ir-recv gpio_nr=238 active_low=1

    I see this error message, because wrxtasy incorporated the gpioplug-ir-recv into a LibreELEC 7.1.3 community testbuild successfully, but still the GPIO IR didn't work. So I saw that assignment of gpio_nr=238 wasn't possible because of the missing modprobe options module.

    The thing here is... This thread is in the wrong subforum here. You refer to the official LibreELEC-Odroid_C2.aarch64-8.0.0 release, but this subforum here is only for the community builds.

    If you are speaking about Android, do you mean that you use a dedicated Android apk from PIA, or do you achieve these high speeds on Android kodi with the vpn addon installed in kodi?

    Assuming you are using an app from PIA to establish your connection on Android, than this app could choose ipsec or pptp protocol, which is mostly faster (either because decryption is way faster, cause weaker, than openvpn, or because PIA has more bandwidth on ipsec and pptp than on their openvpn servers).

    But LibreELEC is limited to OpenVPN, which is more secure, but mostly slower, especially on ARM systems, compared to x86/x64. And some VPN providers may share less bandwidth for the OpenVPN protocol servers, as these need more processing power, hence more energy consumption, less efficient for them and less users care whether it is openvpn or pptp, so they may calculate with this less demand and focus on high bandwidth for the other protocols.

    It's just a guess, but this could be an explanation why your android and libreelec show so different speeds.

    As far as i know LibreELEC was the first system which integrated the IR and HDMI-CEC power on/off. The official kernel adapted it later. Don't worry, it works... The kernel number doesn't matter in terms of libreelec.

    The developer Kwiboo was responsible for this (for OpenPHT, initial testing was on LibreELEC 4 months ago or so) :)

    Storage/.config just like rpi should do it. I just know that some builds had lirc issues... Not sure whether only community builds (wrxtasy, Raybuntu) were affected, or the official ones as well. But anyhow... Storage/.config is the correct directory.
    etc/lirc is read-only, thus cannot be the right one.

    Looks like GPIO IR will be working soon again: ODROID Forum • View topic - LibreELEC 8.0 - Krypton final - media build edition - 32bit
    (have a look at @wrxtasys reply 3 post afterwards)

    It is a missing module since krypton builds.


    Cannot say anything to your actual issue, but you can simply take the lircd.conf from your raspberry and drop it into .config directory the same way as it was on your Rpi2. It will work on the C2 (at least it should and does on mine).
