Upgrade to KODI 16.1 on your VS1/VS2

If you have a VS1/VS2, you need to upgrade to KODI 16.1 for your unit to work properly.  Here are the instructions:

1.  Open BROWSER from the APPS section.

2.  Go to http://vstreamtv.com/kodi16.html

3.  Click the link to download.

4.  You should be prompted to use ES DOWNLOADER, select that.

5.  Click OPEN FILE.

6.  Click to INSTALL.


Troubleshooting Your VStream Media Center

If you are having issues with your VStream Media Center, here are some simple things that fix most issues!

When you open VStream TV / KODI, you are not showing the VStream Build.

You need to unplug the power to your VStream for 10 seconds, and from the home page, click ALL APPS, then click ANDROID TV APP (This is the VStream Updater).  Click on FRESH START which will delete your content, and then click on UPDATE KODI to run the App Updater again.  Please do this even if it says your current version is the same.

Nothing will play when you go to watch Movies or TV Shows.

This is more than likely and internet issue.  Exit KODI and on the home screen, click on SPEEDTEST.  If it says "Network Communication Error", then you are having an issue with your internet connection.  If you are on WIFI, please unplug your internet router / modem for 30 seconds and plug it back in.  You should do this once a month as well.

I am experiencing alot of buffering.

The first thing you should do is check your internet speed by clicking SPEEDTEST on the home page.  You will need to use the mouse function on the remote to start the test.  If you have Vader Streams, you need at least 20 MBPS.  You do need to make sure to exit KODI properly when you are done watching it.  The exit button is in the lower left corner, it is the circle with the line in it.  Click on it then click EXIT.  It could take up to 30 seconds to exit.  Then power off with the red button on the remote.  If you are not exiting, over time, you could get to much memory built up in your cache.  Everytime you start KODI, it clears the cache.

When I pull up a Movie or TV Show in Exodus, it won't play.

Sometimes there may be an issue with a particular addon from time to time.  Just select a different addon like Zen or Specto. There are several great addons for watching movies and tv shows, so be sure to check them out.

How do I get the latest version of KODI.

There is a new KODI Version check addon in ALL APPS.  Go to KODI UPDATER and click it.  It will tell you if there is a new KODI version available.  Just click to install it.  Please make sure you have the latest VStream Update installed first.,

How do I clear my cache.

Everytime you open KODI, your cache is cleared automatically.  So just make sure you exit when you are done.  You can also go to TOOLS and click the down arrow to CLEAR CACHE, PURGE PACKAGES and DELETE THUMBNAILS.

Also, if you are on WIFI, you should unplug your router / modem for 30 seconds at least once a month.

How do I save my Favorites so I don't lose them after I run the updater.

For a VS3 or VS4, look under TOOLS and select BACKUP FAVORITES. Once the update has been run, open Kodi and go back to TOOLS and click RESTORE FAVORITES.

For a VS2, go to TOOLS and select BACKUP FAVORITES and then click BACKUPFAVORITES.XML. Once the update has been run, open Kodi and go back to TOOLS and click on RESTORE FAVORITES and then click on RESTOREFAVORITES.XML.

Check this site for more information and click on VSTREAM HELP on the VStream Homepage and watch the videos on using your VStream Media Center. 


Saving Your KODI Favorites To a USB Stick

Many of you are frustrated when you do and update for KODI and you lose your favorites.  Well, I have a solution.   First, you will need to install ES FILE EXPLORER on to your VStream.  You can get this in the VStream App Store (click SEARCH and type in "ES FILE" and then OK. )  Or you can get it from the GOOGLE PLAYSTORE by searching for ES FILE EXPLORER.

You will also need a USB STICK.

Optional:  Mouse

1.  Open ES File Explorer

2.  Edit SETTINGS to SHOW HIDDEN FILES.  You can click SETTINGS on the top left menu or scroll down to the bottom of the left menu bar and you will see it there as well.  SHOW HIDDEN FILES needs to be checked.

3.  Click on LOCAL on the left menu bar and then click INTERNAL STORAGE.

4. Click on the ANDROID folder.

5.  Click on the DATA folder.

6.  Click on ORG.XBMC.KODI folder.

7.  Click on FILES folder.

8.  Click on .KODI folder.

9.  Click on USERDATA folder.

10.  Navigate to the FAVORITES.XML folder and while it is highlighted,  hold down the OK button on the remote for a second or so until you see a check mark on the file.

11.   While checked, click COPY and the bottom of the page.

12.  Under LOCAL on the left menu, click on your USB DEVICE.

13.  Navigate to your folder and click PASTE at the bottom of the screen.

CONGRATULATIONS!  You have saved your FAVORITES!

To restore your favorites:

1.  Open ES FILE EXPLORER with your USB Stick connected to your VStream.

2. Under LOCAL on the left menu bar, click on your USB STICK to open it.

3.  Navigate to FAVORITES.XML you saved and highlight it and hold OK button down for a second until it is checked.

4..  Click COPY and the bottom of the page.

5.  Navigate to the USERDATA folder (see 3-9 above)

6.  Click PASTE

7.  Check APPLY TO ALL and then OVERWRITE.

You just restored your favorites!


Updater Fix for VS1 and VS2

We have a fix for the updater for both the VS1 and VS2.  Just follow these instructions:

  1.  Go to APPS and click on BROWSER
  2.  Go to http://vs2updater.com by typing that in the address bar of the browser

Real-Debrid: Must Have (Almost) for VStream Users

5902_Formulario_

Do you expect to stream movies and TV shows in the highest quality and convenience? Getting a Real-Debrid account may be what you are looking for!

Banner

I see tons of questions and comments on Facebook and Twitter such as “Why can’t I find any HD links in Exodus?” or “How come Exodus is always buffering my streams?” The truth is, the majority of file hosts in Exodus are provided for free and have limited bandwidth capabilities. These sites limit the download speed you are allowed to access them with and limit the quality of files that can be uploaded. As well, Exodus is a popular add-on and thousands of people are trying to use the same streams at the same time. All of these factors cause routine buffering.

If you are willing to try it, there is a PREMIUM option that eliminates these issues and make add-ons such as Exodus buffer free and high quality: Real-Debrid on Kodi.

Real-Debrid is a paid service that gives you premium access to a large number of popular file hosts on the internet. Your fee goes to maintaining and paying for those servers, so your download speeds are not limited and uploads are not capped to save space.

The monthly cost for Real-Debrid on Kodi is insanely cheap – 4 euros ($4.31USD) for 30 days, 9 euros ($9.69USD) for 90 days, or 16 euros ($17.23) for 180 days. At less than $20 for 6 months of premium quality, the risk to try the service is very low! In addition, when you buy a premium package you earn fidelity points, which can be put towards free premium time for Real-Debrid on Kodi.

If you are interested in trying Real-Debrid, simply click the banner below, and sign up for an account!

USA Live TV Spotlight – USTVNOW Plus Add-on

USTVNOW_Iphone5_400x400

There is lots of fooling around in order to find reliable USA Live TV links, but USTVNOW is the undisputed option for the major cable channels that are reliable and high quality!

 

The official USTVNow add-on has been discontinued as far as development goes, but mhancoc7, a user has created a custom fork of the add-on with a ton of great new functionality called USTVNow Plus. If you still don’t know what USTVNow is, read the original post below for details on the service. For no cost, you get 7 of the main USA live TV networks!

Mhancoc7’s USTVNow Plus v1 Features

  • Added movies and sports sections to view channels by categories.
  • Set the DVR recordings to rtsp or rtmp. RTSP allows for fast-forward, re-wind and resume, while RTMP has better quality.
  • Set the Live streams to rtmp only. I could never get the live streams to work with rtsp so it seemed like they should just be set to rtmp.
  • Added ‘Plan HD + DVR’ to the setup process with an option in the settings to toggle DVR package on and off.
  • I have the addon setup so that the DVR recordings are limited to no greater than 1024kbps. I have found that if the quality is set to HD the recordings would not play. So now if you have the quality set to HD the recordings are set to 1024kbps otherwise the recordings are set to whatever the quality setting is set to.
  • Added a link to the addon settings on the main addon page.
  • Updated messaging and the addon id and name.
  • Fixed duplicate channels
  • Fixed issue with &
  • Set channel description to the show title
  • Set quality to 400kbps for all plans. I think this is a good idea since that will ensure less issues with the streams to start and with the Settings option now available from within the addon you can quickly change it.
  • No more setting the account type from Free to Paid. I have found the proper endpoint for determining this. (json for the win!)
  • Updated the Recordings/Schedule section to display the correct Show Poster if that option is enabled.
  • You can setup recurring recordings
  • Tons and tons of bug fixes and GUI improvements!

As you can see, in addition to some playback and cosmetic fixes, this version of the add-on adds full DVR functionality to record TV shows using USTVNow. The cost for DVR is $30 per month, but for those who have cut the cord and are looking for a reliable HD streaming service with DVR, this is probably the best option available right now!

“No Stream Available” Fix + Information

Getting a “No Stream Available” error while using add-ons such as Exodus? Find out what “No Stream Available” really means and whether the issue is on your end or on the add-ons end.

So you’ve sat down to watch a movie or a TV show, you turn on VStream, go into your favourite add-on like Exodus, go to pick your show and the error comes up: “No Stream Available”. What does it mean? There is a large misconception about what this error means and we want to try and help people out.

What Does “No Stream Available” mean?

There is a misconception that add-ons are some magical treasure box of information that store information and links to every single movie and TV show on the internet. Multi-source add-ons like Exodus are simply glorified search engines. The list of movies and TV shows they offer are provided from the API key of a service like Trakt, IMDB or themoviedb. The list of links to each show are scraped from all of the sources loaded into the add-on. They store no streams and do nothing to update the list of shows or movies.

Misconception: If an add-on lists a specific movie or TV show, there must be a stream available.

This is not true. Again, the list of movies and TV shows is just grabbed from another source like Trakt or themoviedb and presented in the add-on. If those services list a movie that comes out in theatres two weeks from now, this says nothing about whether a stream is available.

Misconception: I’m searching for an older TV show or movie I know is released, so there MUST be a stream available.

Also not true. Add-ons like Exodus, SALTs, or Velocity simply scan the streaming websites loaded into them for available links. If none of these websites have working links to load, you will get the “No stream available” error. The older or more obscure your search is, the less likely that streams are available. Talk shows, old movies, or TV shows that air on less-popular channels or countries are less likely to having working links. Stop blaming add-ons because they are not the ones hosting anything for you.

How do I fix this “No stream available” error?

99% of the time, a “no stream available” error in Kodi is on your end and has nothing to do with any add-on. Ask yourself if you fall into one of the categories above. Before using Kodi, perhaps you can try to go to the Primewire website, one of the largest databases for streams available, and search for your show or movie. If you don’t get any search results, you might have a hard time in Kodi as well. There is no “fix” for no stream available except to be smarter and more aware about what you are actually searching for.

The M4U  add-on’s specialty is movies. When you first launch the add-on, you’ll have the choice of the following categories:

  • Latest Added
  • Most Views
  • Hot Movies
  • Best 100
  • Genres
  • Year
  • Search
  • TV

The TV section takes you into the TV area, where you again have latest added, most viewed, search, and genre sections.

The really nice feature about the M4U add-on is that the movie section lists what quality each link is! When you hover on a video, it will tell you if the quality is Blu-Ray, DVD, HD, or Camera. This means that you know what quality to expect in the video before you go into it.

The other nice feature of the M4U Kodi add-on is that all movies and shows are single-linked. Unlike Exodus or Velocity, the movie will start playing immediately without you needing to pick a host!


Featured: CanTVLive Add-on – Canada IPTV Channels

Canlive

Are you a Canadian VStream user? An add-on exists called CanTVLive that contains a ton of great Canada IPTV channels that are specific and may be of interest to you!

March 25th Update: The CanTVLive add-on has been updated to version 2.0.2. Version 2 of the add-on changes to look and code to make updates easier, removes dead links, fixes links, and adds specific live games to sports. If you are looking for a nice free Canada IPTV option, check out CanTVLive under the  INTERNATIONAL TV section!

___

 If you are from Canada, you will be familiar with a ton of the channels in the add-on:

  • Global TV
  • CTV
  • CBC
  • SportsNet
  • TSN

If you aren’t from Canada, these channels may still be of use for you! Global TV is Canada’s syndication channel for the main US channels (CBS, NBC, ABC, FOX) and it often shows many of the same shows as those stations. SportsNet and TSN are Canadian sports channels that offer many MLB baseball and NFL Football games, in addition to main tournaments and events. These would be equivalent to ESPN in the USA. CTV and CBC provide news coverage in addition to US syndicated shows and unique Canadian content.

Quality is great on these Canada IPTV channels, with quality ranging from 480p all the way up to 720p.

 

 


Why Trakt Is Better Than Kodi Library Integration

Trakt

Kodi library integration is a hot topic as of late because users are comfortable with how easy it is to group your favorite movies and TV shows, but Kodi developers are moving away from the feature in favor of Trakt. Read on to find out why we think Trakt is a better solution rather than Kodi library integration!

At first glance, Kodi library integration is a nice feature. You can add any show or movie from a single Kodi add-on into your library, creating a quick shortcut that links back into that add-on. It saves you time searching for your show every time you want to watch an episode and saves a few clicks navigating through the Kodi add-on.

However, Kodi library integration is very basic and is a hassle to maintain the code. Kodi developers have been moving together towards more Trakt use and we think this is a great idea!

If you aren’t familiar, Trakt is an online service that allows you to add movies and shows to a library (called a collection) similar to the Kodi library integration, but it also does a lot more! Once you have an account setup, there are tons of Trakt apps so that you can keep everything organized from your phone! I use an app for the iPhone called SeenIt, but the official Trakt website maintains a list of add-ons that allow for Trakt account management.

Here are some reasons why Trakt is superior over traditional Kodi library integration:

Reason #1 – Trakt Support Goes Across Multiple Add-ons

The number one reason why Kodi library integration sucks is because it only provides a shortcut into the one single add-on you used to save a show to your library! This means that if Exodus ever stops working and all of your library is added from there, it is useless. When you add a show to your collection, you can view your collection in any add-on that supports Trakt. The only thing that changes is that when you are in Exodus, all your shows link to the Exodus stream select. Likewise, in Velocity all of your shows link to the Velocity stream select. Your Kodi library is automated for every add-on.

Reason #2 – Update your collection on-the-go

When you add a show into your Trakt collection, your collection is viewable in Exodus, Velocity, SALTs, or any other Trakt-supported add-on. You can always view your collection from your mobile phone app and add, delete, and edit on the go as you please and it will all be updated when you get home and boot up Kodi! You no longer have to spend a bunch of time in the Kodi menus adding shows to your library.

Reason #3 – Other Trakt features

In addition to being a movie and TV library, Trakt also comes with other features:

  • Add TV Shows and Movies to your watch list and turn on reminders when a new episode is about to air
  • Share what you’re watching with your friends on Facebook and Twitter and give everything a rating.
  • A custom calendar so you can see when all of your TV shows air.
  • Get recommended TV shows and movies based on your viewing habits.

Some of these features require other Kodi add-ons to be installed, such as the Next Aired add-on to know when the next new episode of a TV show airs. Keep your Kodi setup streamlined and move this functionality to Trakt, where you can get the information quickly on your phone without booting into Kodi.

Tip: Trakt Collection Shortcut

Create a shortcut to your Trakt collection inside of your favorite add-on and link to it from your Kodi main menu the same way your Kodi library integration works now and you get all of the benefits above with the same look and feel as the default library integration.
