[split] New plugin "iPlayer WWW"
#1
I am using a VPN with my device that as Kodi installed. BBC iPlayer does not allow catch-up to be played when using a UK VPN. My question is this, is there any way for me to disable OpenVPN only for the iPlayer WWW add-on?

Please familiarize yourself with Kodi's VPN policy (wiki).

Actually, this is a legitimate question. It is not about using a VPN to avoid georestrictions from outside the UK, but how to avoid using a VPN within the UK.

As I already answered your question on GutHub: I am afraid this is not possible since the VPN reroutes your network traffic on an OS level. This is transparent to Kodi.

I have tried adding these lines to my .ovpn file with no luck unfortunately:
Code:
#AS2818 BBC bbcinc.com:
route 212.58.224.0/19 255.255.255.255 192.168.0.1
#AS2818 BBC bbc.co.uk:
route 132.185.0.0/16 255.255.255.255 192.168.0.1
route 132.185.112.0/20 255.255.255.255 192.168.0.1
route 132.185.128.0/20 255.255.255.255 192.168.0.1

Does anybody here know what the IP range for the "BIBI" BBC iPlayer source is?

p.s the reason I asked the question here was that I believe many users will be using OpenVPN with Kodi and if there was an option inside of the BBC iPlayer WWW add-on to bypass OpenVPN using your local connection that would be useful however I'm not sure that's possible because the OpenVPNs .ovpn file would have to be modified and that's outside the scope of Kodi.

I have also tried adding:
Code:
#Fastly AS54113
route 151.101.0.0/22 255.255.255.255 192.168.0.1

#Limelight
route 178.79.192.0/18 255.255.255.255 192.168.0.1

#Akamai
route 23.3.13.0/24 255.255.255.255 192.168.0.1
which has made no difference.

Update - After switching my DNS provider the issue has been solved and I can now watch BBC iPlayer no problem.
For anyone else having this problem the DNS I was using was Cloudflare which was being blocked by BBC iPlayer.
