An issue in the software is not surprising, even for a highly stable one like Kodi. However, with the right tips to fix such as those mentioned below, one can easily enjoy a hassle-free Kodi experience.

The Software Won’t Launch

This does not happen often but there are certain instances when Kodi would crash upon starting and this might be because of distinct reasons. The first being that sometimes a newly installed Windows 10 can cause various issues that lead to the crashing of Kodi at start-up which can be fixed by either installing Visual C++ Redistribute or download any missing files that cause the failure of the software to start. Another reason why Kodi might not launch for many users is because of the bugs in the previous versions which are usually fixed in the newer one and hence the better alternative is to download the latest version from the official website.

The Build Won’t Function

There are many times when even the best kodi builds fail to perform after installation which might eventually frustrate the user. However, it is not the build that is to blame entirely but sometimes other factors also play a significant role. While updating the Kodi addon or build is one way to troubleshoot the issue, one can also try using a VPN to unblock Kodi’s video streams as the software, by virtue of piracy due to which various ISPs block the traffic that is associated to Kodi.

Failure to Connect to an External Source

When a user tries to install an addon, they are required to add the URL of the external source which may fail to open. The simplest way to mend this issue is to make sure that the URL is correct and doesn’t bear any mistakes. If the issue persists, it is better to download the same addon from some other website.

Video Taking Too Long to Play

Buffering is an issue that is enough to irritate a user if they have been trying to play a video for a long time. The issue is not new to Kodi as well and one of the most sought ways to fix it, is to employ more resources to the application in the form of an XML file to improve its performance.
