F4MTester Kodi

F4MTester Proxy Addon and its repo are available through fusion.
F4M manifest files are decoded by F4MTester, where the live stream file that Kodi plays is grabbed out from the F4M file. F4M files contain more data than regular stream files:

Multiple bitrates can be configured so that different stream files can be generated depending on your internet speed or defined quality.
Different quality video and audio tracks of a stream can be stored in separate locations, referenced by the F4M file and put back together.
Extra meta data and stream information can be saved into the file.
F4M streams can be optimized into multiple smaller files and pieced back together on the fly.
DRM security can be built into the stream so that users without proper credentials can’t stream the file.

So what is F4MTester? It’s a Kodi addon that decodes F4M files to strip out the video stream and play it in your Kodi screen. F4M files are becoming more and more popular, so F4MTester will be needed to present these streams to users.

There is a level of sophistication to F4M files, which means that decoding them should give Kodi users access to some more reliable and better quality streams.
