cCloud Kodi Troubleshooting Help

Kodi cCloud Installation Failed

If you have issues downloading and installing the cCloud Kodi addon, it most like means that the repository is broke or down for maintenance. When you go to install a Kodi addon, it retrieves an addon zip from an internet address. If the repository is down, the “installation failed” Kodi error is a common message.

One solution for this problem is to make sure that you can access the repository address on the internet. Take the http address of the addon and try to access it from your phone or computer. If it is unaccessible, there is nothing you can do until it is back only.

As well, make sure that you are only installing Kodi addons from their original repository.

Kodi cCloud Error Check Log

Sometimes you may get a message telling you to check your Kodi error log. If you see this error while streaming video, it can mean that your cache is full. If this appears while trying to navigate menus in the X Kodi addon, it means that the link you are trying to access does not exist anymore. If you are trying to start a stream from the addon, select another stream.

How to Fix cCloud Kodi No Stream Available

If you see the error “stream not available” in Kodi while using this addon, it means that the addon was unable to retrieve results for your query. Kodi addons are simply search engines into the public internet and do not host any content of their own.

When you select a title or stream in Kodi, it searches the internet for media streams matching the title you’ve select. If it cannot find anything, you get the “stream not available” error. Most likely, you will have to try a different addon or select more popular content that is more likely to be available.

How to Fix cCloud Kodi Script Failed

The Kodi script failed error occurs when your addon fails to execute its function in a proper manner. The most likely cause of this error is because you are running an old or outdated version of Kodi. The addon is trying to use a dependency or script newer that what is installed on your machine and is giving you an error.

Always look to upgrade Kodi to its latest version to maximize success with your Kodi addons.

How to Fix Kodi cCloud Download is Stuck

When installing X Kodi addon, your installation may fail to progress further beyond 0%. There are two main causes for this:

  • You are using an old version of addon or of Kodi that is unable to read the installation files
  • You have connected to the installation server, but it is not returning files or is timing out your request. If this occurs, try to install again.

  1. I click on the links on ccloud and they do nothing. This looks like it could be a great but someone help me out here

  2. To those who can’t get access for Filmon, just install the FilmOn PVR, than you have access to it as IPTV. Remember to got the the website and add the channels you want to show up as favorite, only those channels will show up. If you don’t add them to favorite they will not show up 🙂

  3. why cant I get filmon as I have paid for the service,you say that you are upgrating to be much better,after trying to connect for the past 7 days I seem to be robbed.Can you put a better outlook to this problem you have made for us all by the coments I have seen

    Clifford mcinnes

  4. can you give me an email to give me a reason why I cant receive filmon as I have payed for the subscription

  5. when i try setting up ccloud on kodi i am getting “cannot connect to server”. Can you please say if the ccloud server is down..I am running kodi 17.

  6. New cloud loaded ok through colossus but no channels work and the icon is still the old one. Any advice is greatly appreciated….thanks.

  7. I had CCloud TV installed on two Android boxes and they worked a few weeks in April. It sorta worked, almost every time I would scroll through the guide it would end up downloading guide info and get stuck forcing me to force quit kodi.
    The channels were easy to setup, simply click on the channel and a dialog box opened and you’d only need to add the CCloud choice and click save. However, it would be even nicer is there were scripts that would auto link the channel streams when installed. It looks like it’s 99% there as the first run setup has the CCloud Add-On pre-loaded but you still have to manually select it then click Save. If a channel stops working that did before, you can click on the channel and Remove Stream then you can Add a new stream and select a different stream source as it should be. Having said that, it’s still better than most EPG apps that are a pain at best to configure the channels.

    When the EPG stopped working, late April-early May, when I’d click on a channel in the EPG guide it would take me to the stream window but it would not add the CCloud add-on, you could link to a local file or a stream file if you know the path.
    Nothing worked, both boxes did the same, one box was a S905 box with Kodi 16.1
    and the other was a S912 box with Kodi 17.1 installed and both boxes had the same problem.
    I finally decided to uninstall all CCloud from my box and reinstall it all. I used the podgod test 1.8 to install the latest EPG guide then I used podgod 1.7 repo for installing the Ccloud TV app, once the newest EPG was enabled.

    After installing I launched the new CCloud TV Guide and I was able to click on each channel and a few clicks later each channel was setup.
    Almost all of the channels work fine and load pretty quickly.
    My biggest problem is sometimes when I click on a channel the whole screen will go black. It hangs up and sometimes it goes way after clicking the back or escape buttons on your keyboard. If that doesn’t work you’ll have to escape to the Box Home Menu.

    I wish there was a small field somewhere on screen that would allow quick and easy access to tools and customized settings. Another nice option would allow me to customize the interface of the guide with foreground, background color options, font sizes, channel position within the list, etc. Another nice option would be to have more specific tv show info.

    I’m really looking forward to the non beta release, I think the guide is now at 0.7 version, not sure when it will be released and will it be version 0.8 or if they’ll bump it up to 1.0?

    Overall, for a free Beta EP Guide this seems to be a potential winner.
