Kodi Repositories – What they are and how to use them

What are Kodi Repositories?

Kodi Repositories, aka Repo’s, are containers for Addons, which are essentially apps for Kodi.  Some Kodi repositories just include one Addon, others many.  By installing a Kodi Repository instead of individual Addons, the Addons are automatically updated when a new version is released.

Kodi Repositories come in the form of ZIP files.  A guide to how to install them can be found here.

There are a number of ways to access them.  Some easier than others.  The easiest and quickest way by far to install Repo’s, is to use special giant Repositories that include many of them.

The two main players in the game are the nicely named SuperRepo and XunityTalk’s Xfinity.

By setting up these Kodi Repositories you won’t have to spend time searching for which Repo the Addon you want is in, and then install that one repository alone to access it. They give you access to nearly all of them all in one go. Displayed in categories in a easy to use interface.

SuperRepo

SuperRepo is one massive repository, with many sub repositories included.  It has over 2,400 addons and also includes other goodies, such as Skins.  Skins change the appearance of Kodi.  What they have done is to index nearly all of the Addons all in one central place.  Therefore making it easy to browse through them all and find the one you want.

The SuperRepo website also has a nice feature which is Addon Bundles.  These let you create a bundle of your best Addons and share them with other users.

If an Addon is not supported for your version of Kodi/XBMC, or becomes broken. SuperRepo will remove them from the available list.  This is handy to ensure you have good working Addons with no compatibility issues.

As you can imagine there are to many to list them all in this post.

XunityTalk

XunityTalk is similar to SuperRepo but may contain content that SuperRepo doesn’t and vis-versa.

It is also the home of IStream, which is an alternative to the traditional Addons method.  It helps you search multiple sites for content and even integrates into your Kodi Skin.

Here is a list of Kodi Repositories, Skins and stand alone Addons that are included:

  1. Thanks for posting this article Daniel. I have a quick question. Can access to or installation of repositories be restricted by the creator/manufacturer? I purchased an android box a few months back and it came preloaded with a really cool repository. I’ve recently been playing with a few other android boxes and Fire TV. I tried installing the repo on my new boxes but it won’t install. Seems like the repository will only install on 1 particular brand?

    1. Hi JD, Repositories/Addons can be specific to a certain Kodi build, i.e. Frodo, Gothom and helix. I have not came across them being device specific. Which repository is it that you are trying to add, and what method are you using? (ZIP file, adding source to file manager, or third party installer.) Do you get any kind of error message when trying to add the Repo? If it is a blank list you are seeing, you could try a Force refresh on the repository.

    1. Hi Pete. You can use as many repositories as you like. You don’t need to delete one to add another. If they are the same repository from the same author then it is best to have only one of each.

  2. Well I figured it out. But now when I go to start any video, it tells me that there is an icefilm error and I need to check the log. I saw the log (I think) but I see mostly symbols! Help!

    1. Hi Dalia, glad you figured it out. Dependant on where you are and which internet provider you have, ICE films is one of the addons that will probably need a VPN to work as it is most probably blocked by you provider. Try SALTS, Phoenix or one of the many that aren’t blocked. It will help using Real Debrid as well for more reliable sources, but isn’t essential. There is a post for VPN or RD on this site.

  3. How many repos and addons can one have on a media box. I have a minix x8-h plus and am always fearing I have too many. Also is it safe to use xunity or Super repo as I read somewhere they can break your box

    1. Hi Rick, you can have as many that the capacity of your storage allows. The more you have though, the more that will need to update. This happens when you boot up Kodi, and if you haven’t booted up in a while, it can take a few minutes to go through the process. As far as I am aware Superepo is fine to use. If you are using the Xunity addon that changes the way your box looks and functions, then there is a risk. I wouldn’t of thought it could brick your device. A re-install is a that should be required to get back up and running.

  4. Isi I added repositories but cannot figure out how to play them. Phoenix worked fine (can’t remember what I did). I can c fusion, xfinity etc added but can’t figure out how to get them to play. I can see screen in background just can’t get to it.
