      🔥😡🔥 Covenant Kodi Addon Repository Shuts Down 16th November 2017 🔥😡🔥   11/16/2017

      Covenant Kodi Addon Repository Shuts Down After MPAA Threatens Kodi Developer JSergio123 Millions of Covenant, Bennu and DeathStreams users will be displeased to hear that the Colossus repository has been shut down! We don’t have much information as of yet, but from what we’ve heard jsergio123 was threatened by the MPAA earlier today. We haven’t heard from him directly, but different sources have been saying things about what’s happening. He was told to immediately cease Kodi addon development. In case you don’t know who jsergio123 is, he’s been into Kodi addon development for quite some time now, developing different addons over the years. He was also part of the Colossus group, but as far as we have been told, he wasn’t actually contributing to the development of allegedly infringing Kodiaddons such as Covenant, Bennu, DeathStreams and Sportie. This is going to be bad news for Covenant, Bennu and DeathStreams users unless someone steps up to the plate and takes over development. Since the Colossal repository has been deleted, users will have to install a new repository in order to continue to receive updates in the event that another developers takes over Covenant development. It should be noted that none of the Colossus developers nor addons were part of TV ADDONS since we relaunched our site in August. Whether or not he was doing anything wrong, the threat of legal action from the MPAA would be enough for anyone to call it a day. He wasn’t making any money from his development, and no mere mortal can afford a costly legal fight with the big day MPAA. He would go bankrupt fighting to continue developing addons for which he didn’t benefit. We haven’t heard anything about the rest of the Colossal repository developers, but the MPAA identifying one of their own seems to have been enough to scare Echo Coder into deleting his GitHub repositories and Twitter account as well. As far as we have been told, only jsergio123 received a cease and desist, in which they held him responsible for everything in the Colossal repo, including Covenant, Bennu, DeathStreams and Sportie. As for URLResolver development, TV ADDONS has been distributing URLResolver from our community repository since our return in August. We plan on continuing to provide updates, although we expect things to be slowed a bit by jsergio123’s sudden retirement. We really hope that new developers will come forward and contribute Kodi addon code at our URLResolver Development GitHub page. We wish jsergio123 the best in all his future endeavours and thank him for tweeting his endorsement for TV ADDONS earlier today. TV ADDONS is prepared to fight this fight, to ensure that copyright law isn’t expanded. The law is on our side, but our opponents are fierce and lawyers don’t work for free. If you’d like to contribute to our legal battle, please feel free to do so via our donation page on TVAddons   Thank You  And Have A Great Day.

      🔥🔥🔥THE ANSWER TO WHY MOST KODI ADDONS NOT WORKING AT THE MOMENT🔥🔥🔥   11/17/2017

      🔥🔥🔥THE ANSWER TO WHY MOST KODI ADDONS NOT WORKING AT THE MOMENT🔥🔥🔥   THE IMPORTANCE OF URLResolver EXPLAINED WHY MOST THINGS NOT WORKING AT THE MOMENT The shutdown of the Colossus repo and the two other developers’ addons is undoubtedly a severe blow to the Kodi scene. But, while many casual users might be familiar with Colossus and Bennu, most won’t appreciate the importance of URLResolver. Most recently maintained by jsergio12 and distributed via a well know add-on distributor, this is an extremely important addon. Here’s how it works. When Kodi plays content using addons, whether that’s a movie or TV show, links to that content have to be obtained (scraped) from sites hosting it. This means that all addons would ordinarily have to have their own code in order to find the URLs where that content can be obtained. It can be a different process for every video host, a big job for any developer. That’s where URLResolver comes in. This clever tool helps other addons access content by resolving video hosting site URLs to enable related content to be played in Kodi. URLResolver is a really important tool but since it comes packaged with addons that rely on it, most users won’t even know it’s already on their system. They’ll definitely miss it when it’s gone, since among other things it was utilized by the extremely popular Covenant addon. All may not be lost though, since the well know add-on distributor indicate they’ll try to keep URLResolver alive. The well know add-on distributor has been distributing URLResolver from our community repository since our return in August. They say they plan on continuing to provide updates, although we expect things to be slowed a bit by jsergio123’s sudden retirement,” the site said.   Thank You  And Have A Great Day.

Best Kodi boxes 2017 UK: These are the best streaming boxes for Kodi

 

Kodi is one of the most popular streaming apps right now, but you need hardware of some sort in order to get it on your TV. Here are some of the best streaming boxes on which you can install Kodi. Best Kodi boxes.

Best Kodi boxes 2017 UK

Kodi used to be called XBMC, as it was a media centre for the original Xbox. Now, it’s outgrown a single console and is available for just about everything from Windows to the Rasperry Pi. In the old days, enthusiasts would build a dedicated Home Theatre PC (HTPC) to run media centre software, but these days streaming video boxes (and even HDMI dongles) are powerful enough to run Kodi: they’re cheap and silent.

Also see: Best Tech Deals

So without further ado, let’s get into it. Here are some of the best Kodi boxes to buy in 2017.

(Note that the Asus Nexus Player is a great choice if you can find one. Unfortunately this Android TV box is discontinued, so you’ll only find it second-hand or refurbised on ebay and similar sites, but don’t pay more than around £60-70 for one. They cost £79.99 new, and don’t support 4K.)

 

Amazon Fire TV 4K (2015, 2nd generation)

Amazon Fire TV 4K (2015, 2nd generation)

  • RRP: £79.99 inc VAT
 

The 2nd-gen Fire TV costs the same as the first – £79 from Amazon – and supports 4K. It also has a fast processor and is one of the best-value streaming devices around. You can install Kodi on it, but it’s not quite as easy as on some of the Android boxes here. That’s because the only app store on the Fire TV is Amazon’s own, so you have to download the Android version of Kodi and ‘side-load’ it.

For most people, jumping through a couple of extra hoops is more than worth it at this price.

Read our full Fire TV review.

 

Amazon Fire TV Stick

Amazon Fire TV Stick

  • RRP: £35 inc VAT
  • Buy from Amazon for £34.99

If £79 for the Fire TV is a bit rich for you, there’s also the £35 Fire TV Stick. This HDMI dongle will sit unobstusively behind your TV although it still needs power from a mains adaptor, or potentially a handy spare USB port on your TV.

 

Like the Fire TV, installing Kodi isn’t as straightforward as browsing to it in the Appstore but it’s easier now that Apps2Fire exists, which allows you to beam APK files from an Android phone to your Fire TV Stick.

If you don’t have an Android phone, it’s possible (but fiddly) to install Kodi using the Fire TV Stick remote.

Read our Fire TV Stick review.

Nvidia Shield TV

Nvidia Shield TV

  • RRP: £149.99
  • Buy from Amazon for £169.99

Although it’s relatively expensive at £149, the Nvidia Shield TV is possibly the best base for Kodi as it’s so powerful. It will be fast and responsive even if you install graphically demanding skins. Plus, of course, you can use it to play games and stream them – find out more about that in our full Nvidia Shield review.

Since it runs Android TV, it’s very easy to install Kodi from the Google Play store. Also, it supports 4K, which is useful you happen to have a 4K TV.

Best Kodi boxes 2017 UK

best-kodi-boxes-2016-uk---minix_thumb800

 

There are several Minix boxes to choose between, but the X8-H Plus is the most powerful, and you can pick it up for around £115 from Amazon. Alternatively, it’s around £93 from GearBest if you want to risk getting stung for import duty – which could well take the total to more than the Amazon price.

It’s powerful, supporting H.265 decoding: 4K at up to 30fps, and comes with a handy keyboard remote control. Like the WeTek Core on the next slide, it runs Android.

It comes with a version of XBMC installed, but you can easily install the latest version of Kodi via Google Play.

Best Kodi boxes 2017 UK

Another Android-based streaming box, the WeTek Core costs £99 from Amazon and is fulfilled by Amazon, which means you can get it next day if you’re in a hurry. It runs Android – as opposed to Android TV – and this means it’s simple to install Kodi.

It’s not quite as powerful as the Minix, but does support 4K playback.

      How to Fix Openload and Thevideo.me Stream Authorization Errors Kodi 17.6 Krypton
      TToday I will be showing you how to Fix any OpenLoad Stream Authorization Required or Thevideo.me Problems you may be facing when trying to stream content using Kodi 17.6 Krypton.
      I am sure you have all faced Kodi “URL Link Errors” before when trying to stream something.
      As some of you may know, OpenLoad and TheVideo.Me used to block Kodi streaming completely.
      Instead of seeing the movie or TV show you wanted you would instead see some “nice pigeons” walking around on your screen.
      Luckily, the Kodi addon developers came to a deal which allows Kodi to use OpenLoad and TheVideo.Me to stream videos (No more pigeons!).
      To do this, you will need to “Pair” your Kodi installation with OpenLoad or TheVideo.Meby doing something called “Stream Authorization”.
      You simply have to visit their website, click a box to confirm you are not a robot and then click “Pair” you will then be able to stream freely from OpenLoad and TheVideo.Me for several hours before needing to do it again.
      How to Fix Openload Stream Authorization Problems:
      download
      http://patch-recepteur.blogspot.com/2017/11/how-to-fix-openloadco-pair-kodi-error.html
      On any device within your household (Even if it does not have Kodi installed) visit the following website: https://olpair.com/
      Find the Google Captcha “I’m not a robot” and tick the box, you may be asked to complete a quick challenge to prove you are real.
      Now, click the blue button at the bottom of the page which says “Pair“.
      That’s it! All devices can now use OpenLoad freely.
      How to Fix TheVideo.Me Stream Authorization Problems:

      download
      Similar to OpenLoad, on any device within your household (Even if it does not have Kodi installed) visit the following website: https://thevideo.me/pair
      Find the Google Captcha “I’m not a robot” and tick the box, you may be asked to complete a quick challenge to prove you are real.
      Now, click the blue button at the bottom of the page which says “Activate Streaming”.
      That’s it! All devices can now use TheVideo.Me freely.
      By following the above steps for both OpenLoad and TheVideo.Me, you will fix many of the streams available on add-ons such as:

      download
      Covenant
      Elysium
      Bob Unleashed
      Specto Fork
      StreamHub
      and many more
      download
      As all of those addons use these websites to stream from.
      That’s all you have to do!
      You should no longer see any Error
