RTMP (Real Time Messaging Protocol) is a protocol for real-time streaming of video between a server and a client. It is a crucial part of Kodi for playing live streams. Without it, many add-ons like Netflix or Disney+ won’t work. Enabling the InputStream Adaptive and RTMP Input add-ons will fix those issues.
Here is how to enable InputStream Adaptive and RTMP Input:
- Launch Kodi
- Hover over Add-ons
- Click My add-ons
- Click VideoPlayer InputStream
- Click InputStream Adaptive and click Enable (if it isn’t enabled already)
- Click RTMP Input and click Enable (if it isn’t enabled already)
Enabling the two add-ons should solve the issues you had before with playing live streams.
