Yea log files won't help much, but this can be fixed. As you know, I don't have VPN. So, can one of you get me some fiddler log by playing some links under website OR mobile.


RE: Hotstar-Rain Indian movies/tv shows/sports - amanker - 2016-03-12

Most of the time I use mobile. If you please tell me how can I take log of hotstar app.

Ok, you'll need windows machine where Fiddler can be installed.
here is the link for capturing from Mobile device, BUT if you're using windows machine then might as well just open in browser first. Just make sure fiddler is running first, then you simply browse to website and navigate and play whatever you need. JUST one advice, try not to extend video play as fiddler log can become huge(i mean in megabytes). Also, if you want to minimize log then filter by json requests and f4m(video) request, and get rid of rest of the junk.

I'll need better capture... can't go through each .dat file.


RE: Hotstar-Rain Indian movies/tv shows/sports - akg7091 - 2016-03-13

Most of the movies are working ( not all ) but NONE of the tv shows are working.
I am based out of India so it shouldn't be an IP issue. Same shows which don't play in Kodi play properly on hotstar.com / laptop / hotstar app on mobile etc ( same wifi connection => same IP )

Getting below errors in log

No VPN.


RE: Hotstar-Rain Indian movies/tv shows/sports - dhavalmp - 2016-03-13

Hi
Currently watching live match between Ireland vs Netherlands
- On web, Google Chrome, on pc, mobile and tablet: live stream works
- Kodi on Android (Oneplus One) : Live stream works
- Kodi on android (Shield Tablet) : not working - <one or more items failed to play. Check log for more information about this message>
- Kodi on Nvidia shield tv : not working


RE: Hotstar-Rain Indian movies/tv shows/sports - yocoldrain - 2016-03-13

so, it seems its completely blocked from USA. Tried Norway IP but no luck. Dhaval when you say Kodi on Android, are you going through this addon or actual App that works? Also, are you using IP under addon settings? And is it same Kodi version installed everywhere, because this may matter.


RE: Hotstar-Rain Indian movies/tv shows/sports - Ninaad - 2016-03-14

Many of the live streams, movies and TV shows are geo blocked through f4m. The add-on needs to be linked up with f4m tester to work them out in Kodi. I am in India and I have tried to snoop the streams from the website as well as the add-on. It can work on the mobile website of hotstar as they use m3u8 playlists for mobile, both on hotstar and star sports website.

Only reason this addon exists from beginning is because of m3u8 not f4m.

- By 'Kodi on Android' I mean using this addon on Kodi installed on my phone.
- Yes I am using Indian IP
- Kodi Jarvis is installed everywhere
