What the heck is a Kodi scraper and why should I care?
When you use a Kodi addon to look for media links, it searches websites on the public internet for media files that match the name of your query. These websites are called scrapers and they are a big part of the magic behind Kodi.
Remember, Kodi addons do not store any content and videos are not found from thin air.
Popular Kodi Scrapers
The most popular updated scrapers on the internet are the Universal Scrapers.
The Universal Scrapers list is what is used by all Jen-based Kodi addons. It is maintained by a list of people in the Kodi community and is the reason why your Jen-based addons all seem to work or not work at the same time.
The latest Universal Scrapers update is v1.1.4 from December 27th, which comes with the following changes:
- Added eztv, piratebay, and 1337x (see our cached torrents in Kodi guide)
- Fix twomoviez, seriesonline8 and cmovies
- Removed moviefisher and putlocker_online
The last Universal Scrapers update was v1.1.3 on November 12th, which came with these changes:
- change movies/tvshows titles on default.py
- add hosters function
- added scrapers:
- cotun (episodes)
- twomovies (movies/episodes)
- fixed scrapers:

Best Working Kodi Scrapers
A new project called LambdaScrapers has come out, which combines working scrapers from various sources into a single spot. LambdaScrapers can be integrated into any multi-source Kodi addon and you would not need to follow the instructions below.
If you are interested, check out LambdaScrapers today.
The original list below come from reddit_reaper and highlight which scrapers are working best in Kodi. We’ve updated the list to reflect recent updates to Universal Scrapers. Enable these scrapers and disable the rest today and Kodi won’t have to search through bad scrapers for bad content.
Good scrapers = good content.
This list is up to date as of November 2nd
Not sure how to enable or disable these scrapers? Check out underneath each list for a guide on how to setup scrapers in Kodi.

How to Enable/Disable Scrapers
Depending on what addon you use, there are two different spots to adjust scrapers:
- Universal Scrapers Settings (Program Addon)
- Gaia Addon – Gaia has imported both sets of scrapers
To find your scraper settings, you need to head into the video addons (Gaia) or program addons (Universal) section of Kodi.
From your Kodi main menu, click on Add-ons.
Click on the Add-on Bowser gear wheel icon.
Click on My Add-ons
Enter your Program or Video Addons
Next, hover on the addon you want to change and hit the menu (‘c’) button.
Click on Settings
Depending on what addon you just opened, head to the scrapers section as follows:
- Gaia: Scraper Settings > Provider Settings
- Universal Scrapers: Scrapers 1 or 2 Sections
Keep the working Kodi scrapers listed above enabled and disable the rest!
It’s probably not a bad idea to clear your cache and userdata folder. You can find these options in each addon setting as well!
One other thing..
It is a good idea to clear out any old scrapers from your Kodi addons to ensure that the list you configured above is what will be accurate.
To clear out old scrapers:
Launch the Kodi addon you are working with (Gaia, Placenta, or the Universal Scrapers/jen based addon).
Navigate to Tools > Providers
Click the Clear button.
Now you will be good to go!
Still Not Seeing Good Kodi Links?
We noticed that some areas of the world, the United Kingdom in particular, block a lot of the popular Kodi scrapers. That means that no matter what you do, you will NEVER see links returned from these sites.
What can you do in this case?
We highlight recommend a premium Kodi VPN. You will open up your internet, bypass service provider restrictions, and see content from these scrapers again.
Use the links below to sign up for one of our two recommended Kodi VPNs:
And that’s it! Enjoy a better and faster Kodi setup.
