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?

Yes it works in browser. I get this URL https://hsdesinova.akamaized.net/video/vijay_hd/neeya_naana/610/master.m3u8 but this is not parsed correctly in the addon which fails to play it.

The addon's job ends with getting the url. Parsing the URL is Kodiplayer and the addon has nothing to do with it. Sorry, I can't help because it does not work for me in the browser. May be some with India VPN or someone in India can look at this further.

 Thanks for looking in to it. I see in the code based on the URL, it does some parsing before passing the resolved URL to the player. The old ones have this URL format
and the addon looks for "videos" in the URL. But the newer ones(with no GEOIP block) have this URL format:

Yes, and we cannot retrieve the m3u8 to look for the qualities inside because it is geoblocked.
Up till Episode 605, the addon gets a reply from hotstar site as follows
Code:
{"errorDescription":"200","message":"200","resultCode":"OK","resultObj":{"checkCacheResult":"","height":"360","src":"https://hssouthsp-vh.akamaihd.net/i/videos/vijay_hd/neeya_naana/605/master_,180,400,800,1300,2000,3000,4500,kbps.mp4.csmil/master.m3u8?hdnea=st=1529892751~exp=1529893351~acl=/*~hmac=f5a35ad7c39ec674051482170cb962c680f13f0f58b4a59d6db4db8f1b1f07bb","width":"480"},"systemTime":1529893051}
Those urls are not geoblocked
From Episode 606 onwards, the reply is this
Code:
{"errorDescription":"200","message":"200","resultCode":"OK","resultObj":{"checkCacheResult":"","height":"360","src":"https://hsdesinova.akamaized.net/video/vijay_hd/neeya_naana/606/master.m3u8?hdnea=st=1529892315~exp=1529892915~acl=/*~hmac=a9e6e8a445e5bee75b0bf9849e953d6fbc52198682c82b36bc1ab07a7942f677","width":"480"},"systemTime":1529892615}
It is not that the addon is generating a processed url, it is the site that is returning new geo-restricted urls. Nothing can be done unless there is a VPN, atleast for me
Maybe you are using Hola plugin or such in chrome to access hotstar, it is not working with just x-forwarded-for header anymore

 Interesting that I can access the second URL just by setting X-Forwarded-For header in Chrome with no issues. I do not have any VPN.

 As I said do the same in any other browser and check. In Chrome you may have a Hola plugin or something. It does not work for me Firefox, Edge or IE. I never use Chrome


RE: Hotstar-Rain Indian movies/tv shows/sports - ginodave - 2018-07-06

Gujal please help


RE: Hotstar-Rain Indian movies/tv shows/sports - adventurousman - 2018-07-06

I installed it a month ago. fixed the ip issue and everything was working fine but now all of a sudden it gives an error says check the log for more info so it’s not an ip issue error.

I’m using firestick I don’t know how to post the log.

Has anything changed?

thanks


RE: Hotstar-Rain Indian movies/tv shows/sports - ginodave - 2018-07-07

possible reason could be the addon beingauto updated.
you can try installing the addon again and remove the * repository *MOD EDIT*


RE: Hotstar-Rain Indian movies/tv shows/sports - DaVu - 2018-07-07

The *repo shouldn't be installed at all. Please see:

Banned_add-ons (wiki)

You won't get support at all as long as you have one of those add-ons and repositories installed.


RE: Hotstar-Rain Indian movies/tv shows/sports - adventurousman - 2018-07-07

I don’t have super repo. I installed it from the link posted here

There is a tutorial on our Wiki on how to provide a Kodi debug log (wiki) file.

There is no version 1.0.17. There are unofficial 1.0.15 and 1.0.16 floating around
The official current version as released by YoColdRain is 1.0.15 and is available over at github as mentioned in the previous posts
Code:
https://raw.githubusercontent.com/YoColdRain/Hotstar-Rain/master/plugin.video.hotstar-rain-1.0.15.zip

I downloaded this one as this is the official one and it worked for few weeks
