Release Hotstar-Rain Indian movies/tv shows/sports
#1
Star 
Releasing, Hotstar-Rain, addon for Indian movies, tv shows, sports (live if playing), search.

NOTE - This may only work on Kodi 15 and above.

what I've done,
- Added Movies, TV Shows, Sports (LIVE if playing), Search, Movie Collections
- Added settings for above categories based on language
- Added some sorting options for TV shows and Movies
- Video Quality Selection
- Added number of movies per page ( I recommend lower number for smooth operations)

whats required on your part before posting a question
- insert Indian IP address in settings (if you're in India then dont worry about it, or if you're using indian vpn)
- I haven't tested Live sports as they are time based
- IF you're not in India, then regardless of above Indian IP address input, you may not have most of the TV shows working (they are geo-blocked)
- I havent worked much for proper error handling but you shouldn't run into it.
- If you find something not working then verify on website whether its working.
- Do not discuss any other addons.

here is the link, you shouldn't run into any trouble installing it, Good Luck.

1.0.11 - fixed live sports (they work only if not geo blocked, and you need to choose Highest quality or Let me Choose under settings)

1.0.13 - trigger change for live - fix.

Yea, I really want images as well, but its not easier as the site is very dynamic and loads same image from different servers. planning to look in to this.

Tried this with a DNS solution and got to play most everything except the Sports on demand videos. I can't play the sports highlights even on browser though, even with Indian VPN. Anyone able to play the highlights?

then they may be simply not working, unless they do on starsports. If you like to test there and tell us the results, it'd be great!

Thanks for confirming. Confirmed working with a valid IP.

Oddly enough they seem to be blocking an IP obtained via a VPN provider.

New Addition, Added Highest[1080p if avaialble for video] and "Let me Choose"(720p or lower) user selection.

Make note that choosing Highest option MAY take longer to fetch videos. 720p is recommended. 1080p is only helpful if you're sitting 10 feet away or more from your device and device actually has 1080p. Otherwise you wont notice a thing.
