You guys may find more support at the project's github page:

https://github.com/Alexqw/xbmc-gamepass/

There was a commit a couple weeks ago that solved some live stream problems for many users.

The update was working great on Sunday, but the add-on didn't work at all last night for Monday Night Football. It said the login was incorrect. Did it have anything to do with the fact that nationally televised games are blacked out? It shouldn't for me, as I use a DNS service to get around that.

Probably. In Canada, I can watch all the games except for the nationally broadcast ones - Sunday/Monday/Thursday night games (and maybe a couple others). If I try to watch these games, the video loads and plays for a few minutes, but then freezes and drops me back to the main menu.

Ok, well I didn't even get the video to start. I'll try again this Thursday and see what happens.

I've pretty well given up on the gamepass addon. Rebuffers constantly. I believe it's a problem with the way XBMC does the buffering. Doesn't matter whether I choose software or hardware buffering or the size I set the buffer. I'm watching the games now through the browser on the NFL site. Resolution is not as good as with Gamepass on XBMC, but at least it seldom rebuffers.

Are you accessing through a proxy/vpn? Is it fast enough?

I had some problems with buffering when trying to go through VPN (to get around location restrictions.) I also had the same problems sometimes in a browser too. However, I've found that if I turn on my VPN... open the gamepass addon... start a stream... then turn off VPN. I can access and switch back and forth between streams at full resolution with no buffering.

I actually get better quality and less streaming with the xbmc add-on than I did using the official site through the browser.

For me, this add-on has been working well for the last month and a bit.

The only little concern I have is that the surround sound is not being passed through properly, and I can hear the announcers through the rear speakers, which I shouldn't be. Perhaps someone could get that fixed, which would really be appreciated. Thanks.

does anyone having issues when running this app on kodi ? for me it only works on XBMC Gotham 13.2, when i try it on kodi 14 final or one of those nighty builds beta´s of kodi, the picture has these micro hiccups, every seconds the picture hangs for a micro second, unwatchable, i don´t have these issues using XBMC Gotham, this is on an amazon fire tv

edit: this issue can be fixed the following way :

Go to settings / video/ acceleration / change decoding method to software.
