Full Version: NordVPN and Kodi Netflix ( legitimate account )

Hello,

I am talking here about the legitimate netflix add on for account holders.

When I use the Kodi Netflix addon with IPVanish VPN, things seem to work o.k.

I am now trialling NORD VPN

Doing the same thing with this VPN and  this time it appears to connect, and the play symbol appears in the top right corner, and then the feed stops?

Anybody any ideas?

If not an easy fix , can post logs ( not here )

Many Thanks
Keith

Please have a look at our legitimate VPN policy (wiki) as well.
I wish to connect to my Uk account when I am abroad.
I don't believe there is anything  that kodi should be concerned about from a legal point of view
We don't support the use of Kodi through VPNs or when VPNs are active on the device. Please read the policy linked above for details. Kodi does not require any VPN to operate, and the use of such to bypass stuff like geolocking is against our forum rules (wiki) and is specifically not supported here.

If you want help or support for VPNs, then go talk to the people you're paying to get them, as that's at least in part what you're paying for.

Hi,
Thanks for the reply.
I understand kodi,s situation with third party legality, but ifear you are too quick to tar everyone with the same brush.
Money is not evil,for exmple, iti is how you use it.
The same with a vpn.
There are legitimate reasons for using a vpn with ANY software, not just kodi.

Yup but simple logic works 3 ways.

1) if you’re using a commercial paid VPN service then you’re paying them for support.

2) if you’re using a free commercial VPNservice then you’re still paying in other ways and they should support you in lieu of the data they’re harvesting and the ads etc they’re flinging.

3) if you’re smart enough to home brew, then you’re smart enough to either fix it yourself or find the correct product forum to ask (ie not here)

Also note that we don’t treat VPNs as banned (except when used for purposes which themselves violate our other rules). We just don’t support them. The threads that don’t violate the rules in other ways come here to off topic, not into the bin.

If an issue comes up and a VPN is in use then we ask for replication with it turned off. But we do not require or request removal.

We have no argument that there are real uses for VPNs, but in itself Kodi doesn’t require them for its use. Hence why I put the aforementioned policy together to be clear on the subject.
