If you are running Jarvis then its most likely you are running a python version lower than 2.7.9 ?

Thats the lowest version that will allow the certs to include SNI

You have no option really but to update your Python platform and then install a Kodi version (Krypton) that runs on python 2.7.9 or higher. You could try changing or adding to the code the option to turn off ssl verify, but that wont fix the SNI issue

Well, I've updated to Krypton and my activation still gets reset. Happens on this addon, FOX Go and NBC Sports.

Hey, can you post another debug log, starting from when the addon was opened until it the error occurs. Thanks.

RE: ESPN 3 - xDetoursx - 2017-04-05

It's not really an error, I'm just prompted re-authenticate after successfully doing so. I can usually authenticate and be able to watch a couple of streams for a while. But within a few hours of exiting the add on then going back in, I need to authenticate again. Still need a log? Thanx


RE: ESPN 3 - awaters1 - 2017-04-15

Yeah if you could post the debug log that would be great. Behind the scenes the addon tries to handle errors gracefully, usually by logging the user out.


RE: ESPN 3 - mrdally204 - 2017-04-17

I have had this happen to me as well. I think what triggered it for my case was trying to launch a channel my subscription was not allowed to stream. For instance, the Longhorn network. Instead of a failed stream attempt it logged me out.

That may seem graceful, but it can be a nuisance. I have multiple boxes in the house that I have ESPN3 working on. I will log in with one box successfully, then copy the userdata files to the other boxes so I only needed to authenticate once. When an issue hits and logs me out, I then have to get authenticated again and start copying back over Smile

I don't know if ESPN3 has a device limit, but in my head this is limiting the number of devices I have logged in. Between our phones and multiple STBs in the house it really adds up quick.

I was able to hack together a working inputstream.hls binary addon. I published a release at https://github.com/awaters1/inputstream.hls/releases, so far it only has binaries for windows and 64 bit linux. To take advantage of it within the ESPN addon version 2.9.30 is needed from https://github.com/kodi-addons/repo.kodi-addons. Be sure to turn off the disable inputstream addon option within settings before attempting to use it.


RE: ESPN 3 - sah321 - 2017-06-23

So if I watch something for a bit and stop it and try to resume later it does not work. For example I watch a cricket match that is 8 hours, then stop it at 4 hours (this is replay) and then pick resume. The stream tries to load, then the background goes black and it says error.

Anyone seen this? Happens 99% of the time trying to resume at any video over 2 hours.

I was very interested in trying this out. I use a Fire TV 2 to watch my media and came across this note in your github.
Quote:+Android addon.xml doesn't have correct library_android or platform android
+Also it may be difficult to install them

what are you telling us Android users in this statement Smile

Any assistance would be appreciated.

RE: ESPN 3 - mrdally204 - 2017-09-12

For the second time in as many weeks the watch ESPN service itself has had issues. When I tried to watch something through the add-on, I am met with an error and my device becomes deauthorized. I did capture a log file if you think it will help. Is there any way to not deauthorize the device in the case of WatchESPN the service provider is having the issue. It becomes a pita having to reauthorize the multiple boxes I have using your add-on. I know, a small gripe for an otherwise great working add-on, but it would help me immensely. Let me know about the log. It may contain sensitive info and would rather pm you the link. Thanks Smile


RE: ESPN 3 - happymoniker - 2017-10-10

I am using a Raspberry Pi 2 and it is consistently hitting 100% CPU usage and causing the stream to stutter badly. Do you have any suggestions on ways to mitigate that?


RE: ESPN 3 - johndoewwwe - 2018-06-23

@snoopyjoe or  @eracknaphobia I know you two are the most efficent coders with US addons. Any idea if you guys could fix this? Would be much appreciated. I am missing my dose of ESPN ever since the addon broke. It doesn't authenticate anymore.


RE: ESPN 3 - scitommy - 2018-08-31

Any chance you could add ESPN+ subscription content? Thanks.

I’d like to see this as well. I’d be willing to provide wireshark files of accessing the content if helpful.
