How to connect to a Peertube channel / instance


#1

i have a huge interest for peertube video broadcasting ( see https://joinpeertube.org ) i already installed two instances already and i invested some money in its crowfounding.
I have an osmc at home and i want to connect to my peertube instance on it.
I asked on mastodon and was direct to https://github.com/StCyr/plugin.video.peertube where a plugin is under development for kodi 17 or above.
So i have so basic questions :

  • What is current version of kodi shipped in osmc ?
  • How to test those development python kodi script on osmc ?

OSMC ships the latest stable version of Kodi.

Thanks.

I checked and added in https://github.com/StCyr/plugin.video.peertube ](https://github.com/StCyr/plugin.video.peertube a small script to generate the extension.
It can be installed on osmc, but require to connect on it through ssh an add a linux package with:
apt install python-libtorrent
It does work on my OSMC installation.
