    If you have PlexKodiConnect installed... they don't play nice with one another. I had to disable PKC to get it to launch.

    I was unable to launch from the "My Addons" menu in the settings, i had to goto Videos>Add-ons and it works perfect.

    Doh! m0ckerz is right! I couldn't get it to launch for anything till I did this on another device.

    Same issue. If I go through MyApps, it launches, but crashes when I click to sign in.

    We've identified a bug with 'My Apps', thanks for reporting!

    I have the .zip downloaded but when I navigate to Kodi - Settings - Add-Ons - Install from zip file...nothing seems to happen. I navigate to the .zip but I can't find an install file. I apologize if this is a noob question.

    @quikrick11 Maybe these screenshots will help understand: http://kodi.wiki/view/HOW-TO:Install_add-ons_from_zip_files

    I appreciate the response. I saw those but for whatever reason when I select the .zip file nothing happens. It just opens subfolders on top of subfolders. Can't find an install file.

    Are you installing from zip file, as it sounds like you are browsing to the zip file rather than selecting install from zip file

  • quikrick11quikrick11 Posts: 4Members Plex Pass

    I agree. I am attempting to install from zip but not having any luck. I click Install from Zip within Kodi. Navigate to the script.plex zip and click it. Then nothing. It just opens subfolders which I then search through and find no actual .zip. Only .pl's and "Read Me's."

    I'm not even sure how this happens, honestly. Maybe watch some youtube tutorials? Redownload the zip? I've never seen 'install from zip' under add ons open a zip file and not directly install it. The Kodi forums can help further possibly.

    Thank you. I'll look in to that.

    Yeah I would recommend re downloading the file again.
