Popular movie website YIFY has added malicious code in order to stop Kodi users from watching movies from its website! Read all of the details on YIFY vs Kodi below.
This YIFY vs Kodi move comes during some heavy discussion about the best way to present Kodi add-ons moving forward as the open-source software gets more and more popular. When Kodi users stream a movie, they do not have to click past or view any ads compared to visiting the streaming website from a browser. These ads generate revenue for sites like YIFY and allow premium bandwidth space to be purchased. Loss of revenue by Kodi users has already seen the Icefilms team peacefully work with TVADDONS to integrate a non-intrusive ad at the start of every movie that must be dismissed. It’s not clear why a YIFY vs Kodi battle has started instead of the same compromise.

The recommendation from KodiTips is to not use any add-ons with the YIFY source for now until the conflict is resolved. The YIFY creators have the ability to download dangerous malware to Kodi users using the same methods they used to redirect users above. We are hopeful that YIFY can work with TVADDONS and come up with a compromise so that users can use the YIFY source and so that it can become even better in the future. From our experience with Icefilms, an advertisement is not intrusive and many users are willing to view one in exchange for reliable movie streaming!
