What is the URLResolver Kodi Add-on? Kodi URLResolver Update
The URLResolver Kodi add-on works in the background to improve your Kodi experience on almost every popular Kodi add-on. What does the latest Kodi URLResolver update bring to the table? Read on to find out!
August 22nd Update: For those of you who noticed that Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up” would start playing when you would try to stream through a handful of the file hosts, the problem has been fixed with the latest version of URLResolver, v3.0.18.
If you have installed your Kodi add-ons correctly, URLResolver should auto-update and you should not see the issue anymore. It looks like a few of the sites that URLResolver scrapes did not like the attention they received from Kodi.
The URLResolver 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.
URLResolver is automatically installed with any add-on that uses it, so you probably have the latest Kodi URLResolver update on your box without event knowing it.
