KODI Widevine Support

More and more online content providers are now using Widevine DRM for streaming their content.

KODI has implemented support to allow playback of this content via the inputstream.adaptive add-on.
A few platforms already support Widevine in KODI 17 (Krypton) and full support for others will come in KODI 18 (Leia).

My add-ons that require Widevine will automatically attempt to install the required dependencies the first time content is played.
If you have issues with playback please refer to the below list of platforms for which KODI versions I have found to work.


Windows x86_64 YES (KODI 18.0+)
- Tested: Windows 10 64-bit & 32-bit
- InputStream Adaptive must be selected when installing KODI
- Only the .exe version will work (not Windows store UWP version)
- Requires a recent nightly build of KODI 18.0 (32BIT / 64BIT)

Linux ARM7 / ARM8 (Raspberry Pi 2 / 3, Odroid C2) - YES (KODI 17+)
- Tested: Raspberry Pi 3 (LibreELEC & OSMC)
- Tested: Odroid C2 (Raybuntu LibreELEC 32bit Build)
- User Tested: MXQ Box (LibreELEC)

Linux x86_64  / i386 / i686 YES (KODI 18.0+)

Android ARM / ARM64 - YES (KODI 18.0+)
- Requires a recent nightly build of KODI 18.0 (ARM / ARM64)
- As of 12/06/18, it appears Widevine playback for Android is currently broken in nightly builds

- These platforms do not work with InputStream Adaptive (and probably never will)
