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.

Be careful what you read from TVaddons.

Yeah, I don't normally bother to be honest.  This just cropped up on a news feed.  Interesting though if theme developers are effectively embedding things that you may not want.  One of the reasons I stay away from builds (bloat and junk) and non-standard themes.

 

Seems to be a legit concern as people are downloading the theme only to find the add-on enabled:

 

 

Which even the developer acknowledges:

The 2 skins that have the unwanted addon are the official Kodi skins, so they come with the initial install of Kodi

AFAIK Estuary Mod is not the same as the default Estuary skin. It is an adapted version of it. Embuary was also not one of the default skins in my DL of Kodi 17 from the Play Store. Estuary and the touch screen optimised Estouchy. Hopefully I'm not wrong on the Estuary front.   

 

 

Whether any of that changes with K18 I'm not sure. I avoid betas.

Wondering what the latest recommendations for builds are? I was using Exodus and UK turks at the beginning of the year (mostly for movies), then after the legal  problems mid year I've been using Specto-fork which works ok. However, I've recently not been having much luck finding any available streams for most of the 2017 movies... so wondering if there's any better alternatives. 

I have the AIS playbox, so any builds would need to be compatible with Kodi Jarvis 16.1.

Thanks

If you install the Ares Wizard, then start it running (Program Addons), then select Browse Builds they have a selection of Jarvis compatible builds you can try.

Most addon developers have moved to SSL (https) so many addons which worked on Jarvis before will soon stop working.

 

Can you not upgrade your Kodi to the latest Krypton v17.5.1?

I'm not sure, but I don't think so... others on here might know. Basically it's the AIS playbox which is running Android 4.4.2 so it may not be possible.

You can download CEMC from Google Play store.

Or Google EBMC or FTMC. 

All of these will allow you to run Kodi Krypton on Android 4.4.2

I just read that AIS will start blocking add-ons on their android boxes. I read it in a notification on Line or an sms from them. Can't remember which. And I am not even certain whether they could do that.

The only two add-ons I bother with now are Covenant and Elysium, the first for preference as the second often takes you to a dead end.

 

I find I use Terrarium less and less these days (the app that is). Used to be really good but I find these days that quite often it has no source available, many of them are SD or worse, have had numerous instances of buffering and even just complete lock ups and the damn ads seem to be getting worse and longer. Back to using Kodi now for the odd thing I want to watch that I can't get elsewhere.

 

 

Will try Myriad

You may need to update your URL resolver. Google “no stream on covenant Kodi” and there are a bunch of YouTube vids showing how to update the url resolver. 

 

All my Addons not just covenant got more streams after I did this.

Agreed an updated URL resolver should sort out a lot of problems.

 

I'm also using Pyramid as an add on a lot.  It tends to have good sources that don't buffer and actually play.  Good quality too...even their SD is pretty good and no darn Cam quality rubbish.
