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


#4

No i don't have that installed


#5

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


#11

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.


#12

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


#13

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."


#14

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.


#15

Thank you. I'll look in to that.


#16

Yeah I would recommend re downloading the file again.
