Lambda Genesis Update; Genesis Not Dead
Some websites have been incorrectly reporting that both Genesis is dead and lambda is gone from the Kodi community. TVADDONS administrator s7eele has set those rumours to bed with clarification and a hint at what is to come.
After some Kodi websites and Facebook pages started to claim that lambda and Genesis were gone forever, TVADDONS administrator s7eele has posted a clarification on Genesis’ future and a hint at what will come in the future from lambda.
Our guess: Reading between the lines of the message below, we believe that lambda’s next update (whether it is called Genesis or not), will only contain medium quality (MQ) links for free and all HD sources will come from Real-Debrid style source. Low transfer speeds from free HD sources cause a lot of buffering and complaints, which unfairly fall back into the lap of lambda, who has no control of the file hosting websites. Keeping the HD sources to debrid eliminate most playback issues and provide a solid experience for everyone.
While lambda has still not decided whether ‘Genesis’ will continue or not he and the code have certainly not been idle. Regardless of the name the community will be enjoying his efforts in the not too distant future. When ‘it’ is released it will be significantly different from the ‘Genesis’ of the past. The major difference being that it will rely on debrid services for most HD content. With so many installations around the world this is the only way to deliver reliable HD content. If your not familiar with them, debrid services provide you with premium access to a multitude of file hosters or cyberlockers through one account or ‘portal’. We recently released an article on the subject in our blog:
These services will improve your experience with the last version of ‘Genesis’ (v5.1.4) and it will almost be a requirement for HD content in lambda’s current/future efforts. As the article linked above indicates, many of the other awesome add-ons here support debrid services also so it will improve your experience in those as well. We don’t have much more detail on ‘Genesis’ or lambda’s other efforts at the moment but we will provide it when it becomes available. This brings us into a very important topic.
We are aware of recent claims made across all social media claiming that ‘Genesis’ is dead or that a new version has been released. TVADDONS is the official home of ‘Genesis’ so official announcements will be made here on our forum. If it isn’t from lambda himself or TVADDONS staff it should be summarily ignored. As indicated above, lambda has not made a final decision but he hasn’t gone anywhere and he continues to develop amazing code. Look to this post for future updates on ‘Genesis’ and ignore any claims coming from other sources.
