Best Kodi builds 2016-2020


Recommended Posts

Looks like Covenant has also died a death now alongside URL Resolver and number of repos and the various wizards etc.  Kodi has always been a bit of a nuisance to maintain but with the constant changes and coming and goings of add-ons I've all but consigned it to the scrap heap just lately, just way to much hard work trying to keep up and stop the damn thing from breaking.  Folks with Covenant are being advised not to uninstall it as it will work, just won't be maintained.  That said I've noticed a load of dead-ends, links to wrong files and very very little that's actually HD.

No recorded TV series or movies will be available in 720p HD or 1080p Full HD unless they have been released on DVD or BlueRay first. I use this website to keep advised on when new TV seasons or

Troypoint updates daily a list of popular builds complete with Build URL, Build size, and Build compatibility.   You can see it here.

Have a look at this website.   If you're into movies, you can't get much better than Myriad... tons of HD sources.

Exodus is pretty much dead, some of the TV series can still load and be watched but I can't load any movies anymore. 

 

Sad, I liked Exodus.

 

The new must have add-on is Neptune Rising, it's very similar to Exodus and it works fine on my PC version Kodi.

 

Tomorrow I gonna load it on my Mi TV box.

I downloaded No Limits Build and have had it for quite some time, re-installed it yesterday. I am finding that searching for a specific movie is becoming so difficult, at one time you could do a named movie search and get it almost immediately. Has the kodi system changed now?

Kodi still works as it was designed to do, but several video addon developers were recently issued a cease and desist order by ACE, which resulted in a number of them going offline.

 

Most do back within a week or so under new names or the repos have new addresses etc.

Hi All,

 

I have decided to purchase a Kodi box and try to follow the thread by Jai Dee Kodi for dummies. My son will help (i hope) but i wish to purchase the box first from Zeer Rangsit prior to his arrival. 

I see there are many different threads here which i have read but could someone point me in the direction of a decent box thread, what are minimum requirements and ports etc, or the kodi box model ID.

 

I have AIS fiber but my router is not near my TV if that makes a difference. and wish to watch sports, movies and some series.

In an ideal world, i would have preferred to go to a shop and ask them to build it, but i will attempt myself as i doubt that is possible.

 

Thank you in advance for your advice and patience.

I have just bumped an old topic that had some good information on Android boxes in it.

 

See here.

 

You would be best to use hard-wired ethernet rather than wifi.

 

Perhaps powerline adapters could be your solution... have a browse through that topic and see what others are using.

i have the ais 100/40mbs. was told that, (an every time i start the play box it says), better to run an hdmi cable than use wifi.

i run speed tests and get faster speeds ( right now 106/41  using wifi, (my laptop is .2 meters from the modem, tv about 2. 5M) than using the hdmi cable  LOL

I got my android box (kodi is the build ) online 

also get the add ons,  Supremacy, Placenta, sports devil

type in "kodi builds" in you tube

I also got MX9 Pro (2GB/16GB) and it seems to work fine with my WiFi, okay, occasionally it hangs but I sometime think this may not just be my internet but the source that feed the stream. I usually go for 720 rather than 1080 (to my eyes not much of a difference, okay my TV here is not that large). I found the SD stream to actually be worse, the source usually can not give you the feed, maybe they are on low bandwidth - I doubt it is my internet as 720 streams work fine at the same time... !!!

 

My gripe with Kodi and it's add-ons at the moment is they sometime miss very simple things for the user interface:

 

1- Sort the damn lists - how difficult is it.. !?

2- Why not just put a search option, so I don't have to scroll through 1000s of items to find what I want - doh.... ! 

 

Although some do, but not all. And another thing is how I can download and save a movie or show for later viewing (I haven't figured that out yet). In fact can't even make a backup on Ares Wizard because it doesn't let me create a new folder on my local disk - I think I can only save in certain folders on Linux without being admin. I forgot Linux since I used it 20 years ago, I am corporate Windows only person now...lol

Most video addons have a search function... you need to look at the addon options.

 

It is possible to download movies via most video addons.

You will need to enable downloads in the addon settings and specify the storage location for your downloads.

Again... explore all settings and options in your video addon.

I use the Kodi that came with my box and just add video add-ons, have Supremacy, Placenta, Incursion and a few others.

 

Basically getting any movie is easy, some foreign ones that I like don't come with subtitle though, for example I like to see the Angelina Jolin's First They Killed My Father about Cambodia, but no subtitle....I think there is a way to download the subtitle separately but too much hassle, I just go to another movie....lol

 

The live sports on Sport Devil (UK or UEFA football mainly) is very disappointing, hard to find and quality is terrible, and it keeps cutting out. One link works for a few minutes and not again, then another link - I think they shut them down constantly and they have to change the IP etc...

 

Also I don't have a fast internet and use WiFi but the issue, as I have mentioned before, is the source. I can watch a HD video on YouTube (not FHD) perfectly, but at the same time the Kodi links for even SD hang, so it is not at my end but the provider is lacking bandwidth - perhaps too many customers/viewers. 

 

I never tried a full build, but I am not sure it will be any different, perhaps it might automatically try various links and save the hassle, but I think there are all the same link at the end of the day....

 Youtube streams from Singapore server, while streams in Kodi may come from a server at the other side of the world.

 

So your connection to Youtube will be much better than to a server in England or wherever in the world.

 

There is also a huge difference in streaming a video or a live stream over wifi, because wifi is unstable all the time.

 

A video loads in the buffer at the monents you speed is high, a live stream can not load in the buffer.
