Kodi is indeed the best streaming software. Without addons, kodi is a simple media player. Most of the addons work on the basis of a certain framework. And all the framework and base files are located in the repository. In simple terms, the repository is much more important than the addons. Its a real pain in the ass if some of the best repos go down. A few months back, due to copyright infringement, lots of repos and addons were shut down. Ares repository was one of them. The shutdown of ares repo affected millions of users. During those tough times, kodil repository acted as the best replacement for ares loss. Because Kodil repo hosts most of the popular addons. From that day, its one of the top repository among kodi community.

This is a warning to the kodi community. For the past few months kodi community is facing lots of issues. First, ares repo shutdown. Now kodil repo, You must upgrade yourself. So we don’t need to depend on the repository or addons for streaming your favorite contents. If you are using default kodi, then you need the help of addons to stream the contents. We highly suggest trying a kodi build. The working concept of kodi build is entirely different. Kodi builds are developed as a hobby. And all the base files and addon files are integrated into the build. This gives kodi build a cutting edge to access the contents via URL Resolver at the hosted location. Kodi repository doesn’t host any of the contents. It only has the script files and support files to access the contents. So if you are having these files, you can directly access the contents. This is the reason why zip file installation method worked when the repository URL is down. So start using kodi build from now on.
