URLResolver is arguably the most important Kodi addon that has ever existed. Despite it’s importance, most people have probably never heard of it. URLResolver is a type of addon called a dependency, because other Kodi addons depend on it to work. Almost every Kodi addon that scrapes content from the web uses URLResolver to convert the cyberlocker links scraped into media files which can then be played by Kodi.
This means that each time URLResolver is updated, new life will be brought to your existing Kodi addons. This is the first update we’ve pushed since November 2017, so sources which seemed to have been long dead are more than likely alive and kicking again. If you haven’t used Kodi in a while, this update is another reason to give it another shot. As long as you’ve installed our new community repository, you’ll get the update.
URLResolver itself is a totally neutral tool, which can’t actually be used to scrape or retrieve links or content on its own. It does not offer any scraping functionality, so unlike other Kodi addons you can’t actually do anything with it on its own. It is not capable of browsing web sites or searching for content that is available online. That’s where your favourite scraper addons come in!
