HTTP Network Stream

I have a PVR which lists the recorded programs.

If I put the URL in a text file and point Kodi to this text file it usually plays the video via my network.

On occasions I get the following messages;
Operation not permitted.
Could not connect to network server.

My mobile phone on the same network plays the video stream fine, why would Kodi give me these error messages?

Is there an easier way to play http network streams?
