Amazon Prime Video

Sat May 20, 2017 11:25 pm

Hi. I'm running OSMC and I would like to use my Amazon Prime Video account. I have installed the add-on from this post https://www.reddit.com/r/OSMC/comments/ ... ime_addon/, and activated it. When I enter my username/password I get an error message that I have not logged in.

It seems like I should be able to get Amazon Prime Video up and running but I am having no luck. Thoughts? Hints? Rebuttal? Thank you :)

The plugin has not been updated since Sept 2015 (ref: https://github.com/XLordKX/kodi/tree/ma ... me_instant ) so there could be a hundred things Amazon might have changed over that time that breaks it.

Someone has a fork of it here: https://github.com/liberty-developer/pl ... me_instant that has commits that says something about "fix login" in 2016.
But you need to learn how to install the plugin from the source if you want to test it.

Hi. I can install things from source, but that forked plugin looks like it hasn't been tended to in half a year, and is probably abandoned and useless. Thanks. I think It's time to abandon the Amazon Video quest.
