Amazon Prime Video Add-on [input-stream]
#1
I couldn't find a thread for the latest Amazon Input Stream based Add-on and google just shows up piracy links, so I thought it was about time we had a thread about it so people with paid subscriptions can use Amazon inside Kodi.

This is not my Add-on, but seems like a good community effort. This is also not an "official Add-on" by the Kodi team. It has been built by 3rd parties.

If you are posting about a problem, provide a LOG FILE!! Log_file/Easy (wiki)

Just tested this on Kodi 18.0-ALPHA2 Git:20180422-121cd5c

Worked perfectly, no issues. First time I hit play it had to do a Widevine update and accept EULA but other than that, just works!

Yep I've updated my android nightly and its kinda working now with Inputstream on my Nvidia Sheild set to 4k UI resolution.

The problem I have is it always goes to the lowest resolution version when I choose Auto in inputstream. So its really bad quality at 520p.

If I change the option to manual and then go into the video properties, I have a list of many different resolutions and streams. Picking the 1080p version works but then does not effect the next video.

@peak3d any idea why this is happening? Is there an inputstream thread anywhere to discuss this on the forums?

EDIT: I also tried the "android" player option but it doesn't work for some reason :/

Manual selection is used for debugging purpose rcurrently, Kodi picks the first stream from list and because of sorting its always the one with the lowes bandwidth.
I'll remove the Manual / Auto selection in future and you can select auto or manual in kodi menu then. Until then simply use Auto setting

I've installed on Kodi 18.0-ALPHA Android, don't work, do not download Amazon's database, it's very slow and I see main folders but it's impossible open folders. I don't see video files.
Also I tried to install German Amazon addon and download correctly Amazon's database, I see titles but videos doesn't work. Some suggestes...

Inputstream is now working great for me at 1080p while set to "Auto" in inputstream settings.

Is there anyway to access 4k streams at all?

On Windows you can choose between Browser and Input stream in settings. I'm not sure what choosing browser is supposed to do, but for me it results in a hard crash in Kodi. Inputstream works great.

It is working fine for me on my firestick with latest stable Kodi 17.6 and using android as player option. The only problem I see is that it takes forever to load every section, for example it can take 15 min. or more to lad one of the movies sections. I dont know if it is downloading all the info and saving in somewhere because the next time is faster. Hope this performance issue can be somehow fixed.

Is there some way to add content to Kodi library without using another addon like ATL or LIT? I can't find the way to do it in my Shield. Thank you

When in the addon, if you bring up the context menu whilst on the movie/TV show you want and choose Export Movie/Season, this will put the STRM file in one of two folders (Movies or TV) within the Amazon plugin folder in Userdata-Addon_Data.

I then add these folders as a source to Movies/TV in Kodi and update library - works perfectly, as does the Netdlix addon.

Hope that helps

I've tried what you suggest before post cause i do it that way in other addons but don't show me export options in context menu. Sorry for not coment in my first post. I live in Spain (i don't know if country matters) and use Amazon VOD addon (note Amazon Prime Video cause just show german content).

On RPi 3 running Milhouse build #0623 Amazon works fine, change resolution to 720p in input stream and you should have consistent playback.

If there was an option to have a shared folder for the STRM files, this would mean both boxes could share the Netflix/Prime content. Not much of an issue as you can still go directly to the addon.
