raspberry pi 3 kodi

In this video I’m going to show you setup Kodi OSMC & LibreELEC VPN on Raspberry Pi 3 with Private Internet Access using OpenVPN for Exodus, Phoenix, SALTS and other Kodi Streaming Add-Ons. Grab your own Raspberry Pi 3 Kit here:

I recommend using PIA Private Internet Access VPN here:

OpenVPN is the key to getting Kodi VPN working correctly. LibreELEC and OpenELEC latest versions both have this installed by default. OSMC needs OpenVPN installed manually by using the following through PuTTy.

sudo apt-get install openvpn

To interface Kodi with OpenVPN, we need Zomboided Repository installed and to do that in both Kodi OSMC and Kodi LibreELEC, use the follwing command line:


Once you installed the repository, you can install VPN Manager through Zomboided Repository and use the VPN Wizard to setup you Provider (If not Private Internet Access). And that’s how you setup your Raspberry Pi VPN on Kodi.

  1. I just did a fresh install of LibreELEC and tried to connect with putty. Get “NETWORK ERROR: CONNECTION REFUSED” any ideas on how to connect with putty? Thanks.

  2. just out of curiosity at 3:10 you said that after the vpn manager is downloaded you can go back to the raspberry pi. Then you go to browser add ons and the file is there. Does the file automatically download to pi, when you download it on your computer? if not how does it get on the pi?

    • It should work exactly the same (or almost exactly the same) as Kodi uses the plugin/repo system universally.

    • I can’t get openvpn and vpn manager on my pc
      EDIT* i mean I dunno how to get openvpn on pc which repo should I use

  3. I’ve been trying this for over an hour and after entering in that command line all it says is “no such file or directory”. please help

  4. Excellent job man! Simplest video on this subject I have found! Unfortunately I use a VPN that isn’t supported (Hotspot Shield). You wouldn’t happen to know how to set it up with this if it is at all possible. Thanks!

  5. I am getting a msg “vpn manager for vpn- the openvpn executable isnt writing out a log. try changing the kodi log directory setting in settings-debug menu and retry” I dont have the first clue on how to do this

  6. I’m on libreelec and my setup works when I’m not on a vpn but as soon as I connect to my vpn it stops working. It just won’t connect to anything.

  7. Worked and was way easier than I thought it would be. I already had putty and all that stuff so it was pretty easy.

  8. This VPN service “www kanat unique” (Google it) gets an outstanding ranking from me personally. I started making use of it half a year ago. I had difficulty loading it many times before but I had been able correct it with the assistance of their online support. It had been very simple to activate the program and also connecting was simple. I strongly suggest the service, I love it!
