OSMC on Raspberry PI. Won't start IPTV streams

Hi, hope someone can help.

I am a new users to OSMC / Kodi on Raspberry PI 2. I have to say I have been amazed at how well the platform works and have been delighted with what I have running so far however, I have run into a slight problem.

I am looking to get some IPTV streams running. I have followed the process to Enable TV, Enable the Simple IPTV client and configure the m3u list to get the channels. All of this seems to work, however, none of the actual channels actual work. I get the “Working” spin dial for a couple of seconds and then nothing.

The same process works fine on other installs of kodi that I run, I just can’t get it to work on the PI.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance.

To get a better understanding of the problem you are experiencing we need more information from you. Please see http://osmc.tv/wiki/general/how-to-submit-a-useful-support-request/ for advice on how to help us.

Just had a tiny look into this myself and spotted the difference between this working on a windows version of kodi and it not working on the PI version.

here are the entries I noticed (I have blanked out the username and password but trust me they are the same):

I’ve had to modify my post as I can’t post more than 3 links in a post but instead of getting

How can what you are trying to do here be legitimate? 2400 channels? This is like EVERY channel on the planet…

I could cut it down to one channel, the point of my support request is that 1 channel or 2399 channels it still doesn’t work.

If you have purchased these streams from someone, you need to ask them, it’s not an OSMC issue.

I guess what he wants to tell you is that you will not get assistance on this forum if your intend is to view every tvchannel on the planet without paying for it.

Even if this might be in a grey area, the osmc team is not there to assist with this.

Ok, I apologise if I have compromised anyone or the forum by asking for help on this. That was definitely not my intention.

I have removed the post showing the full service capabilities.

My apologies once again.

This won’t help us resolve the issue, as it almost solely revolves around whomever you purchased this service from.

Ask them for support. Not us. There is absolutely nothing we can do.

Hello,

@sam_nazarko, are you sure that it’s not related with OSMC+KODI and therefore that you can’t help us?

We are 4 colleagues that are suffering the same problem with our PIs and IPTV Simple Client Addon.

The same IPTV source is playing correctly on Appletv, Windows 10, Android 5.1, Android 6.0, with multiple different IPTV clients, and we only face the problem with our PIs+OSMC+Kodi.

I also tested different OSMC releases available on the OSMC installer, with the same result, a 404 error, that is not faced at the same time with different OSs mentioned above, pasting the URL from the kodi.log error log to avoid any typing mistake.

I found the following information that it seems related:

If you also find tat it’s related, can you please take a look at the issue and check if that patch could fix the issue?

Best regards and thanks in advance,

Joseba M. Iturbe

Where is the log? And what is the source of your IPTV links?

Hello @ActionA,

Thanks for answering so fast.

Here is the tail -f .kodi/temp/kodi.log when trying to view a Channel:

Copying that URL on waterfox/firefox over W10, you are redirected to:

http://85.17.14.10:8000//streaming/clients_live.php?username=xxxxx&password=xxxxxxxx&stream=12733&extension=ts&hash=f7ea6d660ccfb726c42ec9069d8e1c35&time=1473892527&pid=61042&external_device=&on_demand=0&bitrate=6744

And the channel is played perfectly.

Best regards,

We need complete logs. You also have not answered the second question. What is the source of the IPTV links?

https://osmc.tv/wiki/general/how-to-submit-a-useful-support-request

Hi @ActionA,

You have the source on the tail. It’s an authenticated streaming tv source (I removed the login & password). The URL is the only info I have.

I’ll send the complete log asap.

Thanks for your support and best regards,

Joseba

Hello @ActionA,

The URL to complete log is (removed login/password from http requests):

http://paste.osmc.io/inacubewef.vhdl

The log corresponds to an osmc restart, PVR launch and selection of two different channels.

The source of the IPTV streams can be seen on the log. I have no other info apart from the URL.

As additional information, I checked that it also works properly on kodi over Android 6 running into an nvidia shield tablet.

Thanks in advance,

20:29:51 194.945282 T:1594881008   ERROR: CCurlFile::Open failed with code 404 for http://vipserver.dynamic-dns.net/live/xxxx/xxxx/12732.ts

Looks like a connectivity problem. Try changing your DNS.

I can see the source URL, yes. What I want to know is who provides you with this IPTV service?

Hi,

I know nothing about the IPTV provider, just found the service on a forum. Does it matter anyway?

It’s not a DNS problem. I checked any connectivity issues before asking for help. The name resolution under OSMC is working (I’m an experienced unix sysadmin).

The access to this streams is not blocked by my internet provider as I’m seeing the streams on many other devices through the same internet access line at my home (Android+Kodi, Android+other clients, windows, Apple TV,…).

I also tested on different PIs (2 & 3), with different access lines, with almost every Kodi release available through OSMC installer,…without luck. Same result every time.

To focus the root cause of the problem, just tell you that I can download the videos on my PI+kodi+osmc with a simple wget to the URL and I’m able to open these downloaded stream videos, so it seems the problem is located on the PI+OSMC+KODI+PVR+IPTV Simple client.

I would say that it’s a problem with redirected streams, and that’s why I started searching this topic and found the issue I posted before:

Do you think it could be the same problem?

Thanks for your help and best regards,

If you try a Kodi Krypton test build and the problem disappears, then you may have your answer

Hello,

This was my first approach, but the test builds still have many issues, and it seems I had very bad luck as all the PVR stuff is missing on the latest test builds…

http://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=265306&page=11

I tested by myself that PVR is not working on the latest build and had to rollback to Jarvis.

I could do the all the testing on my Kodi Jarvis if I had a patched VideoPlayer, or also compile it if someone guides me on the process, as I’m too new to Kodi to do it by myself.

Best regards,

Hello,

I have additional information: I tested many previous Kodi releases over different OSs, and it’s only working on Kodi v14.

For example it works on Open Elec with the following image OpenELEC-RPi2.arm-5.0.8.img.gz

I like OSMC so I offer myself to help/test/validate on a fix, but I have no knowledge to fix it by myself.

Best regards,
