Setup Kodi OSMC & LibreELEC VPN on Raspberry Pi 3 with Private Internet Access using OpenVPN

In this video I’m going to show you how you can install a VPN in Kodi within LibreELEC or OSMC so you can watch all those video stream sites that you’ve been dreaming of Stick around’ start you know what time it is So in a previous video I prove you how you can install a VPN with OpenELEC However with these two systems it is a little bit different, and we’re up to Kodi 17 now, which is Krypton So, I mulled I’d do this refreshing video and picture you how to it with LibreELEC and OSMC Now there’s a few of you out there asking why would I need a VPN for with Kodi well, it’s a good question, there are a lot of Addons you can get out there that do streaming from not-so-legal websites and there’s a duet out there like Exodus, Phoenix and Salts and they will stream content that isn’t exactly legal, however, there was still beings from different countries who are looking to stream their TV indicates from, say, the UK or the US when they’re abroad And the only way to do that is through a VPN, which mostly positions you in that country So, I’m saying that and before we get on with the video make sure you subscribe to this channel, make sure you like this video if you do at the end And likewise, if you are already a subscriber make sure you punched that little bell icon too because it helps you to get advised whenever I exhaust a brand-new video Which by the way is on Tuesdays and Fridays, 2pm US Eastern Standard Time, or, 7 pm at UTC +0( UK Time) Which is London So, I’m in Australia, in Sydney, so that would be UTC + 11 if you needed to do the math So with that little bit of a primary out of the direction, let’s step over to the Raspberry Pi and we’ll get started installing a VPN But instead of doing them separately, I’m going to do them both at the same time, so you can do what the difference is Let’s go by there now So looking at both of the Pis now, on the left is LibreELEC And on the right is OSMC Now that we know where we are we need to the “Command Line” for both of these systems And the simplest way to do that is on a computer with the program “Putty” So what we’ll need to do is we’ll need to find the IP Adress for each system With OSMC we just got under “Settings”, and with LibreELEC we go up to the little cog wheel On both systems we got a system info, and from there we go to “Network” Here you’ll experience your IP Address for your Raspberry Pi You’ll need to write this down because when we go out to the computer, it is essential to framed it into “Putty” Links for “Putty” are down at the specific characteristics, or, if you need to know how to use “Putty”, I’ve made a short video which you can use up about now Login to “Putty” using the IP Addresses that we grabbed before And on OSMC the username and password are “osmc” On the LibreELEC system, the username is “root” and the password is “libreelec” Now on both plans you need to type in the following command Now to make it a little bit easier what I’ve done is I’ve employed the following command down in the description so you are eligible to simply simulate and glue that in there What this si is the “Zomboided” repository so we can download the VPN manager for employ with both structures Formerly this is fully downloaded we can jump back to the Pi and continue on from there So on LibreELEC we just get into “Add-ons” and click on that menu item On OSMC we go into settings and then we go down to “Addon Browser” In LibreELEC we go to “My Addons” and then we smacked the two flecks, then on both methods we can go down to “Install from zip file” Then I’m gonna pause OSMC now for a moment because on LibreELEC we actually come up with an Error What we need to do is we need to go into “Settings” and we need to select “Unknown Sources” and enable that and then we can go back Now on both systems we can choose to “Install from nothing file” and go to the “Home” folder and then go all the way down to the bottom and adopt the “zip” file the we are only downloaded This will simply take a very short moment, and once it is done we can go back to where we started from installing the zip file from, but this time we’ll choose “Install from repository” In both structures we got at the “Zomboided” repository and then we elect “Services” and then we espouse the “VPN Manager” Choose “Install” and wait for a moment for that to install on both organizations Once it has finished installing it will automatically start up on OSMC and LibreELEC But what we want to do is we want to actually cancel that, so we’ll go back to the highly primary screen of Kodi for both plans The rationalization here is because we’re going to start up the witch which will guide us through adjusting this up a lot easier So back on the main Kodi screen on the LibreELEC, VPN manager is under “Add-ons”, and in OMSC is under “Programs” Choose “Add-on Settings” and then we’ll start the wizard So the first thing you need to do is choose your VPN provider Now generally all of these are paid so the one I reaccomend is “PIA” or “Private Internet Access” I’ve included a link down the specific characteristics below So in both instances I’m going to choose “Private Internet Access” as my VPN Then I’ll need to put in my VPN’s username and password Click on done and this is where I’m gonna pause LibreELEC for a moment because we get an Error with OSMC Basically LibreELEC and OpenELEC both have OpenVPN installed by default OSMC doesn’t, however what we’ll need to do is we’ll need to pop over to the computer again and we’ll need to install OpenVPN, and I’ll show you how to do that now So once again, open up “Putty”, you need to login with your IP Address for OSMC and the username and password is just “osmc” Now what you’ll need to type in is “sudo apt-get install openvpn” This will start installing OpenVPN and once it’s is doing everything you need to do is get back to the Raspberry Pi Back on the Raspberry Pi now, in OSMC we need to click “OK” and then “OK” again and then you’ll look at this screen now Where you need to go now is “VPN Connections” on “First Setup Connection” On LibreELEC time hit “OK” here Now what you can do here is you can select from the roll which municipality you wanna connect your VPN to Once you’ve selected your VPN this may take a little while, but once this is done it’ll say that you’re connected to your VPN If it doesnt, give it another shot because it may time need another chance to work I have had an instace where I selected one and it didn’t worked so I had to cancel and then I tried it again and it did worked You can always check as well under “Add-on Settings” is “Display VPN status”, if you click on this this will tell you whether or not you are connected to the VPN Awesome So you can see the differences there between needing to install on OSMC and LibreELEC So whichever Operating system you ganna go for your Raspberry Pi I got you reported So did you get this working Ok or did you have a problem with it then leave me a comment down below and let me know, even though they are it did work, just say, you are familiar with, “Thanks” If you think you know someone that could benefit from this video then likewise make sure you share it with them because sharing is caring Well, that’s it for another video, I certainly hope you liked it If you did, make sure you subscribe to this channel And if you are a subscriber, make sure you stumbled that bell icon too Like this video, observation down below, and as always Imagine, Learn, Create
