f4mTester is more of a script that works behind the scenes for Kodi rather than an add-on. Have you ever installed an add-on for Kodi and wondered why some (or all) of the channels don’t work/play correctly? Its very much possible that you don’t f4mTester installed on your Kodi.
I was making a tutorial yesterday for my latest add-on called “Supremacy” and I realized after I had installed it that none of the channels were working on my PC but were working on my laptop. After looking into this some more I realized that my PC didn’t have the f4mTester script installed. Now this isn’t always the solution to why channels don’t work. Sometimes channels don’t work because their server dies, owners get flagged for copyright and there are a whole bunch of other possibilities. f4mTester is a good place to start though.
So what is f4mTester? As mentioned above its a behind the scenes script that helps decode streams in f4m format; it strips down the video and makes it available for viewing within Kodi. With more and more add-ons becoming dependent on f4m format for IPTV its highly likely you’re going to need this script installed at some point in the future regardless as its looking to be the way of the future.
f4mTester can be found in the international section of the TV Add-ons repository. If you download Shani’s repo it should be available inside for download. If you need any further assistance please feel free to contact me and I’ll try my best to help you out. Please don’t contact me though claiming that channels aren’t working because this is completely out of my control.
