Is your Kodi Genesis not working? Maybe you’ve missed the news, but Genesis is no longer supported and certain parts of the add-on are now obsolete and broken! Read the details here and find out what you can do!
This post is not for Kodi users who follow the community closely or follow us on Twitter or Facebook who are probably more aware! This post is for users who have found this page through Google search who are wondering if there is a reason for Genesis not working on their Kodi anymore!
Support for Genesis is dead. Lambda is no longer supporting the add-on, no updates will be released, and no work will be done to help you with your Genesis issues.
Does this mean that Genesis won’t for any streams? No. Genesis simply pulls streams from different web hosts off of the internet so if those web hosts haven’t changed any of their coding, Genesis will still grab links as normal for you. If a website HAS changed any of their coding, Genesis won’t be able to pull in any streams from those websites. Over time, Genesis will be able to scrape in less and less for movie and TV show links.
However, two key things will speed up Genesis not working for people:
- Themoviedb.org has changed their API. Genesis uses themoviedb to bring in all of the movie and TV show category information. So when you go to the most popular, genres, featured, most recent, and other categories in Genesis, this data is pulled from themoviedb. An update is required for this to work again and remember, there will be no more Genesis updates!
- Real-Debrid has changed their API as well. While they are still supporting the old API right now, support will be finished at the end of February. At this point, Genesis will no longer be able to pull Real-Debrid links into the add-on. If you are paying for Real-Debrid, you probably want an add-on that works for you!
So with Genesis not working, what can you do?
Lambda has recently released another add-on called Exodus! Exodus, similar to Genesis, pulls in movie and TV streams from websites around the internet. It is working very well and improves on some of Genesis’ shortcomings. Click here to go to our Exodus install guide and get that today!
As well, there are tons of other great Kodi add-ons that give you access to TV and movies! Check out all of the links below, do some reading, and try a few of them out!
- Multi-Source Kodi add-ons – Multi-source addons scrape TV and movie links from multiple streaming sites and sources around the internet. This gives you the most selection for watching on Kodi at the expense of reliable links since streams and websites often go down, are replaced, or changed. Here are some of the top multi-source add-ons:
- Single-Source Kodi add-ons – Single-source add-ons grab streams from a single website or source. If you streamed content before Kodi, you have probably heard of some of these sources. A good source is generally more reliable as long as long as the source is up and working:
Though you’ve found Genesis not working, there are plenty of alternatives you can check out!
