From the version Kodi 18 Leia we have in this software the possibility of connecting with streaming systems with DRM protection as in the case of Netflix. With this method we can integrate Netflix in our KODI environment, using either an Android TV-Box, tablet, smartphone or in mini PCs like the ones we review on our website. This method can also be interesting in devices with problems to use the official app or to obtain a better quality of the emission.



USES AND LIMITATIONS OF NETFLIX IN KODI

Options of use

We have several options to use the Netflix add-on in KODI depending on the hardware we have and the DRM certificates that our devices have, in any case it is a good alternative if we have problems with the official app.

  • In TV-Box with ARM processor using Android, limited to models with official support such as Xiaomi Mi Box and Nvidia Shield.
  • In TV-Box with ARM processor using LibreELEC, available for all models with Widevine L1 DRM certificates or without.
  • In mini PC in any type of Windows or LibreELEC system.

Limitations

This add-on does not have official Netflix support and the versions we download are developed by users who use the KODI 18 environment to redirect streaming, the results may vary depending on multiple factors.

  • The stability of the system is not assured.
  • Subtitles and audio tracks can give problems.
  • The maximum resolution depends on our hardware and certificates.

  • Copy the DLL file into: C:/Users/[user]/AppData/Roaming/Kodi/cdm/
  • Download the add-on in ZIP on our PC.

  • Within the Netflix playback we can change the subtitles and audio track.
  • In the settings of the Netflix add-on we have settings to disable or activate HVEC, VP9, HDR, Dolby Vision and Dolby sound.
