It only shows the .rar-file and when it opens only the sound starts.

Will it be available in one furter releases?

We've still not seen the debug log (wiki).
Make sure you have inputstream.adaptive set to 720p (it is decoded in software so 1080p won't work).
720p is good on a Pi3 - I'm not sure if Pi2 can handle it (Pi1 certainly won't).

I was under the impression 720p was the default value? as i haven't changed it.

as for the log, i just didn't get around to it but it's not needed now, it's on rpi3, i'll re-visit the netflix plugin in the future, as of now it's just not functioning to the degree that would make me abandon it from the browser or app version.

Thanks for the help regardless!

I really don't know why you're doing any of that, and what you've done is wrong, so for anyone else that wants a widevine fresh start just remove the entire /storage/.kodi/cdm folder and use the curl command exactly as posted in note #6 of the first post. It's best not to make stuff up.

well i had done it before reading the first post, but naturally both do the same thing as there is only 2 files present, i doubt made up scripts function very well.

beyond that, i tried both ways and result was the same.

It will be available from the LibreELEC 9.0 Repository which will be updated once the addon API stops changing every week (this assumes vfs.rar is updated to work with Kodi 18, as it doesn't compile right now, which is the main reason for dropping it).

If you must have RAR support my advice would be to go back to Kodi 17 (or continue using the last Kodi 18 build that included vfs.rar).

It's a similar story with inputstream.rtmp, which also doesn't build right now (same addon author, maybe he's on holiday). I may reintroduce this addon if/when it is updated but if you need it then use the last Kodi 18 build with inputstream.rtmp, or go back to Kodi 17.

It doesn't look like the Amazon65 addon is compatible with the Settings Library changes - you'll need to contact the addon author.

Weekly Linux 4.12.0 build #0704x: RPi / RPi2

This is based on the released 4.12.0 kernel. Unfortunately we have an issue building Generic with 4.12.y (lack of suitable nvidia-legacy driver) which is delaying the cut over from 4.11.y to 4.12.y.

I really appreciate your help, thank you.

Does anyone have an idea about that and a tip for me how to make it work again?

Much obliged.

That looks like a bug in script.module.metadatautils - the get_pvr_channel_and_genre() method was removed on 4 Dec 2016 but is still being called by the "artwork options" menu.

I'd suggest contacting @marcelveldt in his skin helper thread.

Can you try #0704y: RPi2 and confirm if that now works.

The #0704y build includes the ath9k_htc/htc_7010-1.4.0.fw firmware that was dropped with #0522 after a firmware cleanup.

Your "TP-Link TL-WN821N v3 / TL-WN822N v2 802.11n [Atheros AR7010+AR9287]" USB WLAN dongle may not be working without it...

Another problem I have on Raspberry Pi 2:

Netflix and Amazon don't work. I can browse perfectly but when it comes to playing videos:
Amazon -> With OMXPlayer on and MMAL on, it plays only green artefacts, sound is ok
With OMXPlayer off and MMAL on the system crashes and reboots

Netflix: It attempts to play but quits after a few seconds with OMX on, with OMX off there is an error that kodi couldn't play the file and I should check the log.

Log was saying "InputStream Adaptive: License update not successful (no keys)" for Netflix.

I'm not sure I am having the liberty-developer version on inputstream.adaptive. Mine says peak3d 999.2.0.2

I have deleted and reinstalled widevine already.

I'm running out of ideas.

Sorry, I've overseen the 'y' in #704y.

I'll try that.

_____________________

Update: I can confirm it to be working. Will this fix be included in further / future builds?

Many thanks for your help on this and in general as well.

You should upload your crashlog (see note #4 in OP) whenever you experience a crash.

Each of these builds includes the latest inputstream.adaptive addon available at the time of the build.

With #0704 I'm seeing the same behaviour you have reported. The following crash occurred when trying to play Amazon videos (movies or tvshows) with OMX disabled, MMAL enabled (I also see the green screen with OMX enabled).

#0703 will play the Amazon video correctly so long as OMX is disabled - the green screen will be seen when OMX is enabled.

Netflix is working correctly with #0703 and #0704 so long as OMX is disabled - with OMX enabled, there is no video shown at all.

Here is a debug-enabled crashlog when trying to play an Amazon video with #0704z (debug build): http://sprunge.us/BHiC

Edit: Amazon and Netflix are both working fine with #0704 on Generic (x86) which might suggest the crash is due to one of the newclock5 changes in the RPi builds.
