A new fork of the URLResolver dependency called ResolveURL now provides an alternative method to resolving links from file lockers in your Kodi addons. Read more about the ResolveURL Kodi dependency here!
March 18th ResolveURL Kodi Update:
An official update by jsergio123, v5.0.9 has just been released for ResolveURL. On Reddit, jsergio released the following information:
‘yes there are a few updates but i will no longer include a changelog and development has gone to private git. My public github will remain inplace to keeps pushing updates out.”
“I will not be on Twitter or reddit. Keybase.io and github.com will be my only points of contact. Too much drama”
v5.0.9 was just sent out and it may take a while to replicate to all Kodi devices so please be patient. You can “check for updates” in Kodi to try and speed the process along.
ResolveURL is a non-prejudice dependency resolver that decodes links from popular file locker hosts, allowing Kodi to play media from these sites. It is a fork of URLResolver that is maintained and developed by jsergio123, who is one of the best Kodi python code distributors on the internet today.
The ResolveURL Kodi add-on works in the background of Kodi (called a dependency) to decode file hosts in order to play the root movie or TV video stream. If you are new to Kodi, you probably notice that a lot of add-ons use the same filehosts – Gvideo, clicknupload, zshare, dizilab are some of the popular ones. The URLResolver Kodi add-on knows how to navigate through these hosts, clicking through captcha’s and virtually retrieving the streaming file which you see in Kodi.
How to Setup ResolveURL
In order to use the new ResolveURL dependency, addon developers will need to recode their addons to use the new dependency instead. The end user does not need to make any changes on their ends.
ResolveURL First Time Setup Important Notes
The first time an addon updates to use ResolveURL over another resolver dependency, there are a couple of very important notes you need to be aware of:
- You may get a popup notification that says that there is a problem with URLResolver. You MUST CLICK the “Ignore” button.
- You WILL need to reauthorize your Real-Debrid and other premium accounts to work with ResolveURL. To do that, you can find the configuration settings by navigating in Kodi to SYSTEM > Add-ons > SYSTEM > Dependencies > ResolveURL > Configure > Universal Resolvers.
ResolveURL is automatically installed with any add-on that uses it, so you don’t have to worry about installing ResolveURL. Per jsergio, developers can add it as a dependency by adding the following code to their addons.xml file:
<requires> <import addon="xbmc.python" version="2.1.0"/> <import addon="script.module.resolveurl" version="5.0.00"/> </requires>Import ResolveUrl in your code and use it the same as you would with the UrlResolver
import resolveurl resolved = resolveurl.resolve(url)Or you can import ResolveUrl as UrlResolver to your existing addon that uses the UrlResolver
import resolveurl as urlresolver resolved = urlresolver.resolve(url)Include jsergio's repo with your repo to always have the latest updates
