Streaming (DRM)

Post by jaka_s »

I have purchased XU4 for my TV. But I cannot watch streamed movies (my TV provider App and HBO GO). At the moment my purchase is useless, since I cannot watch any streaming TV.
Is there any OS I can Install to make this work? Android, Linux?

This problem appears in several threads, but I could not find any definite answer how to fix this.

You'd better try CoreElec with kodi and adaptive input plugin, though I'm not sure if it supports HBO GO.

CoreELEC is not available for the XU4

    Try my Kodi build from here viewtopic.php?p=248813#p248813 I don't know the HBO GO plugin, but sometimes the service they offer are region locked you should browse the Kodi forums for a solution

    My Kodi build supports disable the hardware decoder if you have codec support problems but I doubt that this will help in your case because DRM encoded material mostly has its own software decoder library libwidevine on Netflix, Amazon and Disney

    Hope this helps

    I bought my XU4 for the emulation but eventually I converted it in a streaming platform.

    But I use it as a common PC, and I use Vivaldi to watch all my streaming services. As a matter of fact if you install Android TV it says that some services aren't supported because the CPU (like Disney+) but all of them work if you run them from the browser.

    Personally I prefer use a proper Desktop to run those service rather than through UI like Kodi.

    I use XU4 with RetroElec and so far it works with DRMs (autoupdate)!

    HBO GO works perfectly
    Netflix works perfectly :)

    Best regards!
