Earlier this month, the URL Resolver Kodi dependency plug-in received its first update since November 2017. No Kodi TV addon to ever exist can match URLResolver’s importance. Many Kodi users have never heard of this near ubiquitous Kodi addon, so you may wonder what it does. Most current popular Kodi TV addons depend upon the URL resolver. URLResolver fetches and streams content from the internet for them. These Kodi TV addons rely on the URL Resolver addon to convert scraped links. The URL resolver converts links scraped from cloud storage servers into media files. Then, Kodi can use and play these media files.

URL Resolver Update Makes Kodi Happy

TVAddons URLResolver Update March 2018 URL ResolverThis means every time URLResolver receives an update, most Kodi TV addons get a new lease on life. The TVAddons team hadn’t pushed an update to their URL resolver since November 2017. For this reason, revisit the Kodi TV addons you’d given up on. They may once more feel like the shiny gems you knew when they were new to you. They have likely received new life in the form of fresh stream sources and a clearing out of broken links. If you’ve avoided using Kodi for a while due to failed streams, then this update should make you very happy. If you have any Kodi TV addons that depend on URLResolver and auto-updates turned on in your Kodi preferences, then you should receive the update.

Kodi TV Addons Rely On URL Resolver

This URL resolver does nothing on its own. A simple tool for use by other Kodi TV addons, you can’t access URLResolver to scrape or retrieve links or content. URLResolver offers no scraping functionality, so you can’t do anything with it. URLResolver has no ability to browse websites or search available online content. Scraper addons take care of this. Examples of these include Neptune Rising, Genesis Reborn, Covenant, Placenta, and many others.

I know this post is kinda old, but it looks like jsergio123 is back at it! I hope we get continuous updates to ResolveURL again. 😀

I’ve seen ResolveURL and URLResolver. Are these the same or is one better than the other?

    Hi Kimberly,

    ResolveURL is simply a fork of URLResolver, but they are used by different Kodi add-ons. It really depends on which Kodi TV addons you’re using, though jsergio123 (ResolveURL developer and maintainer) has sadly retired (again). It is likely ResolveURL will stop being a viable alternative very soon if someone doesn’t pick it up and tend to it. Like I said, which one you use (or even the similarly functioning Universal Resolver, which replaced the NAN Resolver) really depends on your choice of streaming addons. I would hope that any addon developer whos addon depends on a resolver would switch the addon’s dependency to another resolver once the one they use stops being updated.

This will give me more streams if I update? I read it was bad to update sometimes with real pirates taking over

    Alice on Fire · 2018-05-21 at 3:26 pm

    Yes, you will get more working streams in Kodi addons that use URLResolver if you update. Just make sure you update from a reliable source. For now, I suggest using the TVAddons.co “Fusion” (xvbmc) repository. Those guys are a bit overwhelming in their marketing and trying to steer people into using their Fusion utility, but they do have the most up to date version of URLResolver for now. You’ll notice some addons pulling away from using it, but it’s all good. Having options is what makes the Kodi third-party community so resilient. Other addons use ResolveURL, which is a fork of URLResolver, and some use Universal Resolver, which has also proven really reliable and well maintained. There is nothing wrong with having all three of these installed and up to date—URLResolver, ResolveURL, & Universal Resolver—if your Firestick has room.
