If you have been in the community for a while, you may have noticed that certain add-ons offer live streaming. That is done through the Real Time Message Protocol (RTMP) settings in your install. If you do not have these settings enabled, you may not have much luck doing that. In this guide, we will show you how to Enable the RTMP settings in Kodi. This process is quick and easy, once you know how to do it.

Kodi - Enable RTMP

How to Enable RTMP for Kodi Krypton (v17.x)

  • Open the Krypton Version of Kodi.
  • Now, choose Add-ons and then My Add-ons.
  • Next, look for the icon that is labeled Video PLayer Inputstream.
  • From here, select the RTMP Input.
  • The screen that comes up is the standard add-on install screen. Select the option that says Enable.
  • Exit out and select InputStream Adaptive. When you see the information screen, select Enable again.
  • Both settings are now enabled and your install should be ready to stream the add-ons with the live feed options.

That is all you have to do to activate live streaming in your Kodi install. Keep in mind that this setting is not enabled by default. If you are doing a factory reset, installing a new build, or performing a fresh start on your system, you will need to go and re-enable these settings to get live streaming access to work correctly.
