Hi,

I have an addon run correctly with Kodi 16 but not in Kodi 17.
In Kodi 16, Kodi VideoPlayer can play succesfully lh3.googleusercontent.com url but Kodi 17 throws an error 403 for the same url.
Anybody has an idea how to fix it ?

Thanks in advance for your help,
sviet

Here is the debuglog:

Hi streamwatcher2013,

Thanks for quick answer.
It means that Kodi 16 doesn't require the google authentication but Kodi 17 requires, is it ?

Do you know how to get the google authentication for Kodi 17 ?

Thank you,
sviet

Google for gdrive addons. It has info how to play the stream from google thru that addons with your own xml, strm or m3u file. Exp below
Code:
plugin://plugin.video.gdrive?mode=streamURL&url=https://docs.google.com/file/d/#####/preview
Or use regex with LSP
