Vero 4K Netflix and Streaming general

You can hack OSMC skin to “work” with v.18, some grapics/text missing. But usable, had some stabillity issues, but i dont know if that’s skin related.

Where there is missing graphics/text you can often click there to get function anyway.

Ah, ok, good to hear! :smile: Would u tell me how? We have to live with the issues for now, that’s the same here!


nano /usr/share/kodi/addons/skin.osmc/addon.xml

Change “5.12.0” to “5.13.0” and save.

THIS IS A HACK, more work is needed to get the thing working as it should, but i’m not fluent enough in skinning to work it out yet.

Cool, thx!

Hello fellow osmc’s here :grinning:
-First off i am pleased that this forum is so nice, and people here also.

My update to stretch went well without any problems during install (watched it on big screen from couch with coffee).

So next step is to install kodi 18

Any best way to do this ?

Thanks very much all.

I will ofcause paste logs etc… if anyone here say’s so! - But for a start just hear if it’s just me having this issue ?

Good evening and rgds; Jesper.

Hi @lykkedk,

only had an issue with amazon, which was related to an old libwidewine, in this case search for an error in ur kodi.log that looks like this:

Thanks… I asked just now in another thread.

Rgds; Jesper.

I use OSMC on the Vero 4K. 720p is working. Today I tried 1080p by changing the settings of the inputstream add-on but the stream (in this case Jessica Jones) was lagging. One kernel was at 100%. The rest also pretty high.

Is there any chance to get 1080p running smoth on the Vero 4K with the Netflix Add-on in the future? Or do I need to change any settings?

You are using an early Alpha build of an experimental feature not developed or supported by the OSMC team. You should take this question up with either the Kodi or the add-on developers.

I thought the main question is if this content (widevine over inputstream add-on) can be played with hardware acceleration. Or do I miss something? Maybe this question can be answered here even if the add-on and the Kodi version I use are alpha.

Because it seems that only with software this will not run smooth.

HW acceleration with Widevine isn’t possible. It’s not allowed by Netflix.

Thanks. Bad to hear. So I will need several devices/boxes to serve all my needs also in the future it seems.
