 The zippyshare link was only temporary until the change was released by @yocoldrain 
Now that he has released it, you should be using his release

RE: Hotstar-Rain Indian movies/tv shows/sports - Eye in the sky - 2018-03-26

Is there any way for free users to filter out the premium content?


RE: Hotstar-Rain Indian movies/tv shows/sports - yocoldrain - 2018-03-26

@Eye in the sky , it can be added.  But, depending on your location SOME premium content works even for Free user and thats the only reason I decided to leave it there.  You just have to try and see if it works.

Hi,
First of all thanks for creating this addon, I enjoyed watching the programs on this addon but from last weekend (01-06-2018) I am not able to play the videos. It give error message saying IP ISSUE.
I tried to use different ip but does not help.
Does anybody also facing similar issue?
Can you please look at this?
Thanks,

RE: Hotstar-Rain Indian movies/tv shows/sports - milli - 2018-06-23

It doesn't work any more for new videos since last a couple of weeks which use a different URL format. Also some the shows that are free blocking even if an indian IP is specified. Hope someone can fix the code the handle the first condition at least. @yocoldrain  @gujal


RE: Hotstar-Rain Indian movies/tv shows/sports - gujal - 2018-06-23

Some of the new shows are now restricted to Indian IP, so would need VPN similar to SPorts and English Programs on Hotstar. Cannot work around it.
Let me know which show and I can confirm if it would work without VPN

Star Vijay neeya naana most recent episodes. I know they work in browser with x-forward header set to Indian ip. But the URL format changed, breaking the add-on. Thanks for looking in to it.

Was there anything unclear about the red and bold Do not post logs in the forum. Use https: // paste.ubuntu.com/ or similar remark just above the "Post Reply" button?
It is there for a reason. Thanks in advance.

As I said, the new episodes are using a different streaming server which expects Indian IP.
Neeya Nana last season episodes stream from this server and work fine
Code:
https://staragvod3-vh.akamaihd.net/i/videos/vijay/nntamil/527/1000107349_,180,400,800,1300,2000,3000,4500,_STAR.mp4.csmil/master.m3u8

However the latest episodes stream from this server and refuse to work even with X-Forwarded-For header set
Code:
https://hsdesinova.akamaized.net/video/vijay_hd/neeya_naana/610/master.m3u8
The reply header has this in the reply, notice the geo-blocked message. Are you sure the latest episodes work for you in the browser?
