Icefilms Kodi Add-on Guide: 77,000+ Video Library

The Icefilms Kodi add-on is one of the largest sources for videos on the internet. It is also one of the longest running Kodi addons ever created.

March 15th: The Icefilms Kodi addon has been brought back to life with v2.0. The addon has been rewritten from scratch and is much more efficient. It uses the universal URLResolve dependency rather than manual resolvers as in the past.

NOTE: The addon installs fine but as of right now is blank in all sections. If you want to install it via the guide below, feel free to install, but it may not work reliably for now.


The Icefilms Kodi addon is one of the longest running addons in Kodi history. Before there were multiple multi-source addons to check out, Icefilms scraped only one single website (of the same name), the largest media website available with over 77,000 videos linked by the site.

The addon uses URLResolver to present links returned by the site. It is important to note that like all other Kodi addons, Icefilms hosts and stores no content. It simply returns what is scraped from the Icefilms website, like a search engine.

NOTE: The Icefilms Kodi addon can be found in the Iceballs RepositoryRemember, Kodi addons do not store any content.

Icefilms Kodi Blank Screen or Blocked

If you go into the Icefilms Kodi addon and see a blank screen, your internet service provider has probably blocked you from visiting the website. You will need to find an alternative Icefilms mirror that works in your country.

Icefilms Kodi Installation Failed

If you have issues downloading and installing the Release Hub 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.

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


Icefilms Kodi 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.


Icefilms Kodi Not Working / Down

If the addon is not working and your issue is not covered in our guide above, make sure that you have the latest version of the addon installed. Use the top of our guide to verify the latest version.

Also, make sure that you are running the latest version of Kodi. Version of Kodi 16 and earlier are not compatible with addons anymore due to changes in scrapers and code.

Remember, Kodi addons simply query the public internet and do not host any host any streams. Streams, especially live content, is volatile and can go up and down. There is nothing you or the developer can do about streams not working in a lot of cases.



We have no control over and do not host or upload any video, films, media file, or live streams.
