Kodi Frequently Asked Questions
Why Don’t I see Covenant ?
Covenant is located in the XvBMC repository, a long as XvBMC is installed into Kodi it will show up when enabled.
To see which repositories you have installed go to Install From Repository . All the installed Repositories will be shown.
Why Don’t I see the Add-on I am looking for?
Each add-on will be located in its own repository, so adding the repository it is in will be necessary.
For example the popular Neptune Rising addon is located in the Blamo Repository.
When I click a link to a TV show or movie the link doesn’t work or buffers.
This does happen and the more popular Kodi becomes the more the servers/sources can at times become overwhelmed.
This is the reason many sources will come up on a list. If one source link does not work go to the next link. If it starts to buffer stop the video and move on to another link.
Most often a good source can be found within 2-3 links depending on the time of day.
Most addons will automatically try to go through the list of links but sometimes stop.
For example if an addon stops on link 7, restart at link 8.
