Fisrtly, hello to everybody on this forum (my first post here…).
Well, I’ve managed to install netflix as an kodi extension video on my raspberry pi 3 media center coupled with a FullHD TV). Not an easy task but people out there worked hard for that so kudos to them, especially the guys here that provided the correct explanations and links.
I can fill in and navigate netflix menus easily but I’ve very frustrating feelings:
- From several profiles, the majority of movies and series are jerky, slow and often buffering. Some videos neverthless are smooth with no buffering.
- From “kid” profile, everything is fine. no stuttering, smooth videos. But hey, i’m no more a kid !
- with every profile, default audio/subtitles are german so i have to switch both in english each time and that is quite boring.
I’ve bought mpeg-2 and vc-1 license keys.
Kodi 19.0-RC4 is running on osmc 2018-10.1.
I’ve used ares wizard to optimize cache management, my internet bandwith is 10 MBytes/s and local wifi bandwith is 3 Mbytes/s between the router and the osmc rpi3.
I also can read locally nas-based fullhd videos perfectly with the osmc rpi3.
I’ve a 4K smartTV in my bedroom with netflix and it runs smoothly even with 4K streaming !
Any tips ?
