Limitations

  • This add-on doesn't support Webtorrent yet. So, it cannot download/share from/to regular PeerTube clients.
  • The add-on doesn't delete the downloaded files at the moment so it may fill up your disk. You may delete manually the downloaded files in the folder <kodi_home>/temp/plugin.video.peertube/ (more information about <kodi_home> here).

User settings

  • Preferred PeerTube instance
  • Display (or not) a notification when the service starts: the notification lets the user know that the videos can be played which may be useful on slow devices (when the service takes some time to start)
  • Browsing/Searching:
  • Number of items to show per page (max 100)
  • Field used to sort items when listing/searching videos:
  • views: sort by number of views (ascending only)
  • likes: sort by number of likes (ascending only)
  • Select the filter to use when browsing and searching the videos on an instance:
  • local will only display the videos which are local to the selected instance
  • all-local will only display the videos which are local to the selected instance plus the private and unlisted videos (requires admin privileges)
  • Video playback:
  • Preferred video resolution

API

This add-on can be called from other add-ons in Kodi to play videos thanks to the following API:

plugin://plugin.video.peertube/?action=play_video&instance=<instance>&id=<id>

where:

  • <instance> is the base URL of the instance hosting the video
  • <id> is the ID or the UUID of the video on the instance server

For instance to play the video behind the URL https://framatube.org/videos/watch/9c9de5e8-0a1e-484a-b099-e80766180a6d call the add-on with:

plugin://plugin.video.peertube/?action=play_video&instance=framatube.org&id=9c9de5e8-0a1e-484a-b099-e80766180a6d
