Sportsdevil kodi addon install & usage guide + error fix 2017

VPN for Kodi
As a kodi user, we used to watch many TV shows, latest movies, live streaming videos, PPV videos and other piracy stuff. At times watching such piracy things will end up blocking your IP by your ISP. Also, few kodi add-ons are geo-restricted and can't be accessed by all the users. In order to get rid of such issues, a Kodi VPN is always recommended. Using a VPN will unlock geo-blocked content, and keep you anonymous online. After testing out various VPN services for kodi, we found IPVanish to be the best amongst all.

Sportsdevil not working error & how to fix it

1.One of the main reason for this issues is that you may be using the older versions of Kodi. It is advised that you must use the latest version of Kodi for the proper working of your addons and media library. If you are using Kodi version 14.2+ or below, there are possibilities that exodus may not run on your Kodi. You can update to the latest version Krypton 17.3 for the proper working. You can download the update from the official Kodi website.

Another main cause for this issue is you may be running an older version of Sportsdevil kodi addon. Even though you run the latest version of Kodi, running the old addon version will also raise the issue. So, it is necessary that you run the latest version of Sportsdevil kodi addon. You can update the addon by clicking on update button on the addon description page of sportsdevil. Sometimes, the addon may crash without any prior intimation or error message. This case arises due to improper installation of your Kodi. So it is better to Uninstall Kodi and Reinstall Kodi. After reinstalling Kodi install Exodus addon again.

Sportsdevil web request failed

Sportsdevil web request failed is one common issue that most of the kodi users face. Well it arises because the required file / video is not available in the server. It’s because the addon failed to request the proper file to stream.

Sportsdevil no stream available

In order to address this issue, we must understand the working of Sportsdevil first. There are several links to stream the Sports channel or Live telecast. It can be accessed through a lot of applications. What Sportsdevil does is it collects all the links to these sports channels and live telecasts and provide them in an addon cumulatively, so we can access them with ease instead of wandering around the net. I hope you are clear with the working of Sportsdevil kodi addon. Now let us see what may cause this issue.

One of the reasons for this issue is that the link may be expired. In such case it will display no stream available. If the streaming issue is because of content filtering on public WiFi, connect to a VPN service. This should bypass the content block in place. By doing so, you can eliminate the issue and you can access all the links without any issues. If your home internet is content blocking, check your firewall and content filtering settings. Try turning off the firewall completely and streaming. If they do, fine tune the settings so you can still get proper firewall filtering while allowing access to streaming sources.

Sportsdevil could not be installed

The main reason for this error is due to the fall down of giant tvaddons.org. You may have installed exodus from tvaddons.org. But tvaddons has gone down recently. So, you may face this error. The remedy is that you need to install the addon from some other source.

Sportsdevil could not connect to repository error may occur if you are entering the wrong path for the source file. The path for the source file is “http://mediarepos.net/tco”. If you make any mistakes when typing this, it will lead to the mentioned error. Placing period, forward slash, letters either in uppercase or lowercase must be typed exactly as provided by the guide. Try to check again after typing it. Sometimes if you save the different repositories using the same name, will also lead to error. So make sure you do not make these two mistakes while installing the repository.

One of the main cause for buffering and poor functioning of the exodus is that the unwanted storage of cache files and packages. This is the main reason which causes the error while installing or updating an addon. You can overcome this by clearing cache files, deleting thumbnails and packages. In order to perform this, you need to install Raw Maintenance.

Few possible methods to fix Sportsdevil not working errors

Clear cache

On selecting clear cache, it will remove all the dump files resting on your system. Say, for example, if you are streaming a movie, then it will download loads of files to your system and ruin the performance. In such cases, clearing the cache will improve the overall performance.

Delete thumbnails

Almost all of the addons and repositories will have at least one thumbnail images. Apart from that, some thumbnails will be stored within kodi. So deleting thumbnails will free up some space for the better performance of the device.

Purge Packages
