Users have been put at risk by our inability to index certain Kodi addons due to our current legal situation. We have heard horror stories of people configuring fraudulent Fusion Installer alternatives they’ve found through Google; many of which are actually run by box sellers trying to take advantage of unsuspecting users.
This is why we released our Git Browser tool for Kodi over six months ago, to make it easier to download Kodi addons, but also in order to ensure their authenticity. It can be easily installed through our Fusion Installer which everyone knows. Once installed, all you have to do is input the GitHub username of any Kodi addon developer and install away.
While we can’t exactly tell you which GitHub usernames to lookup, we’re pretty sure that a simple Google search for “GitHub Usernames for Kodi” should give you some clues.
If you’re using Kodi 16.1 Jarvis or Below, and can’t figure it out on your own, click here for the Indigo version guide for older versions of Kodi.
Step 1: Click on the Add-ons tab from the vertical menu bar within Kodi.
Step 2: Click on the little box icon at the top left corner of the Kodi Add-ons interface.
Step 3: Select the Install from zip file function.
Step 4: If you’ve never installed a Kodi addon before, it will prompt you to allow unknown sources. Press the Settings button, otherwise skip to Step 9.
Step 5: Click on the Unknown sources setting.
Step 6: Press the Yes button when prompted to allow unknown sources.
Step 7: Press the Back button to return to the previous menu.
Step 8: Press the Install from zip file function once again.
Step 9: Select the fusionco (or fusion) server folder.
Step 10: Choose the kodi-repos category.
Step 11: Select the english folder.
Step 12: Scroll down and click on repository.xbmchub-3.0.0.zip near the bottom of the list.
Step 13: Select the Install from repository function at this point.
Step 14: Select the TVADDONS.CO Add-on Repository from the listing.
Step 15: Choose the Program add-ons category.
Step 16: Click on the Git Browser addon.
Step 17: Press the Install button at the lower right corner of the interface.
Step 18: Wait a few seconds for the Git Browser addon to download, then return to the Add-ons menu within the main Kodi interface.
Step 19: Select the Program add-ons menu from the vertical menu bar within the Add-ons section.
Step 20: Launch the Git Browser for the first time.
Step 21: Once you’ve read the short instructions, press any button to dismiss and continue.
Step 22: Select the Search by GitHub Username function. This is the best method to use for authentic results guaranteed.
Step 23: Click on the *** New Search **** function.
Step 24: Input the GitHub username of the addon developer you wish to find, then press the OK button.
Step 25: Optionally, it’s a good idea to install the developer’s repository in order to facilitate updates. In this case, the file is called repository.mhancoc7.public-0.1.2.zip however it may look different, choose whichever is most similar to the addon developer’s name. Otherwise, skip to step 27.
We’re already working on a new version that will offer the option to receive automated updates for previously installed addons.
Step 26: Press the Install button to proceed if you’re starting by installing a repository, otherwise skip this step.
Step 27: Press the Continue button if you just installed a repository, otherwise skip this step.
Step 28: Select the video addon you wish to install, in this case we’re going with plugin.video.ustv.catchup-0.2.7.zip as an example.
Step 29: Press the Install button to proceed with the Kodi addon installation.
Step 30: Wait a minute for the Kodi addon and its dependencies to download and install.
Step 31: Press the Restart button if you’re done installing your last Kodi addon for the moment.
Step 32: Relaunch Kodi and click on the Add-ons tab from the vertical menu bar.
Step 33: Launch the Kodi addon you just installed (in this case USTVcatchup) from the right side of the Add-ons interface.
Step 34: All done! Hope you got your popcorn ready.
