    I don't understand how people don't get it.


    XBMC has been my go-to for LOCAL MEDIA, now everyone wants to access these pirate streams and basically demand support by blaming the original software for failed functionality of the "pirate addons".



    What do you expect out of us devs and tinkerers for a stream service you SHOULD be paying for? No love here to dive into your problem, but what Chewitt said... the same bugs and errors will follow your hardware choice because you are using Kodi how it's not intended.

    ok I have been reading trying to understand how to install and I have seen ssh way is there no way to just flash it like you do when installing the android firmware. I got so lost on the ssh process. and yes I have usb tools but none of the firmware I have will work. now the usb drive has firmware that works can I not create a img with that. idk I feel so lost installing this on internal memory


    Create a bootable USB/sdcard with the LibreElec tool provided on this site. Power cycle your device holding the reset button, and the script runs from the card...Installs on the card, and always loads after that.



    SSH not needed.

    S905X-based box. mali-450 gpu, 2/8gb, 10/100 lan (T95N Mini M8S Pro) Running LE 8.0c


    after I read up on the validity dates, and I'm only a monthly subscriber... it might be time to find a new vpn.

    I had an issue like this with my 905x box. What I did was use the UPDATE&BACKUP app that most these boxes come with, zipped up an aml_upgrade_package with 4 other files and boom. I was able to flash out of the Android firmware that prevented my toothpick method, recovery, and booting from sd.

    This is what I'm commonly getting when trying to connect via Windscribe. I'm able to use OpenVPN on Android. The CRT and KEY in your add-on match the ones Windscribe gave me. I try to google these errors and get really lost. I don't expect you to look deeply into this, but if there's a simple troubleshoot or two you can guess from this log ... then you would make my day.


    Cheers, and thank you for your hard work.

    its running great from the usb I just tried it just trying to figure out how to write it to the internal


    There's no difference in performance by going internal. I've got mine running from a 32gb microSD card, no problems whatsoever.


    If you do decide to (like I did at one point then instantly regretted it, even tho I never use the Android side) make sure you have a working ROM you can flash back to Android in the not-so-rare case of bricking your device.

    Maybe I didn't read enough documentation, but I'm wondering if there's a sweet SSH command I can use to push the updates, rather than re-format and flash a fresh copy on my sd card. I'm completely fine re-formatting and restoring each update, but I'd be punching myself if there was an easier solution.


    I thank ANYONE in advance who replies


    My thread comment inspired more reading, I no longer need assistance.



    This is part of your CEC settings, I have mine configured to go Sleep mode if I change input sources. I also have the TV recognize the box when it powers on so the TV itself turns on when said input is powered on.

    And that last part indicates that it can't really be the cable itself. Changing it just triggered something else.


    I also had the problem once, changing resolutions back and forth fixed it for me.



    That makes sense, the video itself isn't downscaling to the screen's native resolution. If toggling resolutions doesn't reset it, then something in the code or the settings that's keeping the video in it's original size.


    Annnnd, ummm.... there's a working Netflix solution out there :huh: I just cancelled my plan :( If I can get 1080p in LE, i'll sign back up :D


    In Kodi v17, the following tags are removed from

    Code
    1. <network>


    and placed under a new

    Code
    1. <cache>


    tag. Also,

    Code
    1. <cachemembuffersize>


    is renamed to

    Code
    1. <memorysize>


    and

    Code
    1. <readbufferfactor>


    is renamed to

    Code
    1. <readfactor>

    I had to edit my xml when I moved to Kodi.. in the Wiki, it breaks it all down (new changes and all)


    There is a systemd service file template in /storage/.config/system.d/ that can be used to configure VPN connections. You can also Google search for Brian Hornsby's OpenVPN add-on, or Zomboided's VPN add-on. You probably won't find a specific howto/guide for windwhatever service, but it will be using an OpenVPN conf file and certs like any other OpenVPN provider so the process of setting things up will be much the same.



    I'm not sure what the OP wanted, but I myself was trying to get a cert to work with my free 50gb/month from windscribe, but it looks like I can't get a working cert unless I pay for Pro. Zomboided's app looked as if I can use it to login with my credentials and no cert key. Didn't work.


    my current vpn only allows one device, and I can't afford an upgrade.


    thx for all your help. these forums rock, and I hope to contribute in the near future.


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


    Was this answered somewhere else? I'm having Windscribe issues as well, wondering if Chewitt came to the rescue or just ditched this thread.



    ( i'll pull the logs from my kodi box when I get home, i'm having certificate issues when I thought the VPN Manager would accommodate) I'll ask zomboided
