FAQ
- Does this work outside of the UK?
- Yes, this is a streaming website that works anywhere

- Why do we recommend you install the repo instead of manual install?
- By installing the repo, any new releases will automatically be picked up and pushed to XBMC and ask you to update the add-on!
- This will cut out the hassle coming to the thread for updates and manually uninstalling/installing the plugin!

- Why choose this over myp2p.eu and other football streaming sites?
- Its all down to preference, although this site is very stable, cheap, and not in high demand as the free websites are, thus better playback

- What is the price of this?
- The plugin is absolutely free (as always!), however, LiveOnlineFooty requires a payment of £6 for 2 months subscription

- Why is the plugin playing streams at 4:3?
- XBMC by default does this, at the moment we cannot force 16:9, streams are in 16:9 so to fix this do the following:
- Settings -> Video -> Display 4:3 videos as Stretch 16:9

Bugs/feature requests
Please use the development thread to report bugs or to request features and to give ideas, located HERE.

When reporting a bug make sure that you turn on debugging in the script and in XBMC and include:

- A debug log
- A description of how to reproduce the bug
- XBMC revision
- Platform (XBOX/Linux/Windows/Mac)

Known Issues
- On XBMC LIVE systems, audio seems to be flawed (although same plugin on same machine and proper install is fine) [RESOLVED]
- On XBOX system, clicking on 'Settings' brings up an error (although works fine on other systems) [RESOLVED]

Special Thanks
To mortstar for adding this plugin to his repo, without his repo it would be a pain for users updating the plugin as new releases come along! cheers mate!

Just tried this now, signed up for £6. Does anyone find it buffers quite a lot?

Not really, once or twice per game.

Can't say I've found that myself. What device you on? ATV2?

Not sure exactly how to do so, but I'm sure there's a way to increase the default buffer size in the addon, that should overcome that if it's a regular problem for you, although it means launching the stream would take longer.

Please report back if you keep on finding this problem.

Been considering signing up to this site for a while now. I've been using free sites such as myp2p.eu for many years now, can anyone tell me if the streams these use are any better quality or are they exactly the same ones? Also, being a West Ham fan it's looking likely that we'll be going down this year - anyone know if they show Championship games?!

not paid for the site, but looking at the quality of the demo that the site shows, its brill, worth the £6 or so they charge!

The streams are way more stable and on the whole better than p2p streams.
The biggest issue with the site is the scheduling that never seems to be quite up to date -
however the subscription is cheap so I can live with that..

Not sure about the championship - there is a game scheduled for tonight so I suppose it depends on who is streaming when..

I kept getting it lots during the Spanish match last night. Will try it again tonight for the QPR V Derby match then.

Currently using ATV2, was using Stream 12 as wanted to watch the Spanish match. Not seen any settings though, only somewhere to enter my username and password. I will give it another go tonight for the QPR V Derby match as I mentioned above, see if that improves anything.

Might also give it a try on another device see how that works. I am not on a fantastic connection but it does average around 4mb which should be more than is needed.
