xbmclodi-rtmpinputEnable RTMP Input for Live Streaming Kodi v17 Krypton

I was surfing the web yesterday, going through some of my favourite XBMC/Kodi resources when I came accross an atricle by the people over at Fusion/TVAddons discussing the need to enable RTMP Input for anyone using Kodi Krypton v17. If like me, you’ve experienced issues live streaming on any of your devices with v17 Krypton installed, this next tutorial is for you. By default, the developers of Kodi v17 Krypton, have disabled this live streaming support protocol that is widely used by many of the live streaming resources. My guess, the developers of Kodi are doing their best to make streaming of 3rd party add-ons/Repositories with unauthorized copyright access more difficult for end users. The problem with that logic, this will also effect add-ons that are authorized by the copyright holders as well. Anyway, after enabling RTMP Input, I appeared to have more choices in streams and it ran a lot smoother. This tutorial will show you step-by-step, where to locate and how to enable RTMP Input. Without further delay, CLICK HERE and let’s get into this tutorial.

xbmckodi-IndigoLogoIndigo: Maintenance Tools

In this brief tutorial, I’m going to show you how to quickly clear your cache. Video cache is most common cache in Kodi. It works by saving temporary video files ahead of what you’re watching to minimize video loading. Video cache is temporary and stored in your system’s RAM. These files are generally deleted once they are used or at the end of your session. Since most streaming devices have limited storage space, clearing your cache once in a while is a good habit to get into to help your device run smoothly and minimize crashing.

SurroundLogoEnable Surround Sound

Here’s a quick and simple tutorial to show you how to enable surround sound with Kodi. Users should keep in mind two things; 1) you will need a surround receiver capable of either 5.1 or 71 surround Sound. 2) Just because the stream you watching may have said 1080p in it’s title, doesn’t mean the host enabled the file for surround sound. Many hosts focus on the digital quality of the file at the expense of the sound reducing the file for 2 channel stereo taking into consideration compression and streaming. High Definition digital quality combined with surround sound audio makes for a big file and depending on your internet connection and speed, this may cause buffering. With that out of the way, proceed to the Surround Sound Tutorial
