SkyNet Kodi Installation Failed

If you have issues downloading and installing the SkyNet 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.

SkyNet Kodi Web Request Failed

The Web request failed Kodi error sometimes appears when you are trying to access live streams. This error means that Kodi has failed to read the script or video content format of the stream.

The solution to this error is very simple. You just have to enable RTMP in Kodi. To fix these errors, follow the steps below:

  • Go to the Add-ons menu.
  • Open My Add-ons> Open VideoPlayer InputStream.
  • Click on RTMP Input> click on Enable.

SkyNet 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 SkyNet 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 SkyNet 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 The most likely cause of this error is because you are running an old or outdated version of Kodi.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.

SkyNet Kodi Failed to Install Dependency

If you get the “Failed to Install Dependency” error when trying to install the addon, it means that one of the extra modules was unable to install properly. This can be due to a number of reasons:

  • The dependency listed in the addon code is out of date or not compatible with your version of Kodi (prevalent if you are running an old version).
  • The host is currently offline for maintenance.
  • The dependency does not exist at the address anymore.

Make sure that you are running the latest version of Kodi. If the dependency addon issue is due a host being down or an addon issue, we will do our best to update everyone via social media. Click here to read more about the “Failed to Install Dependency” error.
