fix is uninstall Kodi, then go to Play store, load kodi from there & get addons yourself, good source for info is https://seo-michael.co.uk/how-to-install-exodus-on-kodi-krypton/

Or, install IbreELEC, & again install addons yourself.

The fix is go to settings/Video/Acceleration

First thing I always do when I get a fresh box is to go to the playstore and install Titanium backup, use this to uninstall Kodi and other **** you don't need. Then install SPMC from the playstore and Kodi 16.1 (find from the internet).

If its playing a link, its probably that kodi has been pants for years. It was only ever ok about 10year ago. Since then it gradually got worse with folk wanting to watch free movies etc.
Anyhow like folks say learn how to do a fresh install, and look into different kodi builds.

Who knows the time line, but legislation will be put in place for sure to ensure this type of streaming is clamped down on. There is too much money at stake and the problem has accelerated so fast in the last couple of years that laws will change.

That's said, do we really care, people ignore laws all the time when they want, people still torrent illegal files with little threat of prosecution and on my way to work a hundred people will overtake me doing over 70mph breaking the law without a second thought.

I am positive the law will change in due course, I am also positive my viewing habits won't in the short to medium term.

I also don't think it's much of a stretch to change the legislation so the you are not allowed to watch copyright infringing material. (Much like you could be arrested for buying stolen goods).

It will change for sure, but I'm no lawyer so god knows how they will change it.

Broadband providers have come to an agreement with copyright holders to curtail the activities of downloading such material. Internet providers will curtail the activity by cutting off connections to persistent and blatant 'offenders' - and VPN won't help!! The party ain't over yet but the 'drugs and alcohol' are on the endangered list.

you are saying that ISP have agreed to curtail this activity. have you got a link to this agreement ?

as this activity is currently legal what grounds would they have for stopping legal use of their broadband service ?

yes it may change in the future but my point was that is not likely to be soon. it will be years away and will be unenforceable .

Not as I understand it. It is still a breach of copyright to download, supply or sell it. The position of ISP's is that they have only deemed to be a conduit for the illegality.

As I understand the ruling of the courts would be the equivalent of, obtaining copyright material, transferring it to a DVD and then selling or passing on the DVD. It would be unreasonable for the courts to allow the copyright holders to sue the manufacturers and retailers of DVDs for 'providing a means of transfer' for an illegal act (copyright infringement or streaming of illegal content). The courts ruling, as I read it, is that ISPs are deemed to be the equivalent of the DVD manufacturer or retailer. So the breach of copyright is from the person/people who stole it and the person/people who viewed it, not the transmitter of transfer.

However, life is never quite that simple. ISPs have moral obligations, so they close down child porn sites, terrorist network sites and now blatant copyright infringers. Legally they don't have to, as court rulings, have so far upheld their contention that they are no different from the DVD manufacturer or retailer. ISPs are well aware that laws can change and are mindful that they have the capability to curtail activities that would generally be described as undesirably. ISPs don't want to be 'policemen' and censors by rule of law, but have taken the pragmatic view that if they don't do something, law changes could make them responsible and therefor liable.

that article is talking about Google and Bing. not providing links to illegal pirate sites. That is not what you suggested at all of ISP stopping you from accessing/ using kodi.

sorry but you don't seem to understand the difference between temporary streaming which is legal and downloading which is a breach of copyright.

I say again, use of kodi is legal. it was stated so in the UK courts in 2013/14 and in the EU link two years ago that I have already quoted.

On the 8/3/2017 the Football league gained a court order giving them the right to specifically set up servers to block some commercial sites. These sites illegally hold copyright material owned by the league.

This does not make the use of Kodi illegal or streaming illegal or make any isp block the use of Kodi.
