We recently told you about the arrival of the latest version of the popular application to turn your Smart TV with Android TV, or any other compatible device, into a complete multimedia center. The problem is that some addons have stopped working on Kodi 19 Matrix.
The reason why some Kodi addons are giving problems when trying to use them is very simple: The team behind the development of this app decided to switch from Python 2.7 to Python 3. Already, with the first beta versions of Kodi 19 Matrix, they advised addon developers to update their extensions so that they could work with Python 3.
Many of them have, but there have been others who have not updated addons to work on Kodi 19 Matrix. Especially those who have not received updates for a long time in recent months have been the big losers. Here is a list of some addons that have updated to Python 3 and are compatible with Kodi 19.
How to fix the problem of addons not working on Kodi 19 Matrix
In this way, the addons affected by this Kodi update are those that have not been updated for a long time and without active support, in addition to those that continue to receive updates, but have not yet made the leap to Python 3.
Regarding the former, it is almost impossible for them to work again, since if they haven’t received support in a while, it would be strange if they are now updated to work with the Kodi 19 Matrix. As for the addons that do receive updates on a regular basis, surely in the next few days or weeks they will start working with Python 3, so you just need to be patient.
The second option is to download Kodi 18, which continues to work with Python 2.7. It is true that you will lose the new functions offered by the Matrix version, such as support for the AV1 codec or the most used HDR standards, but in return you will be able to continue enjoying all the addons that you had installed (even if you have to reconfigure them). Don’t you remember what the process was like? Follow our tutorial to install Kodi addons.
For this reason, we are going to leave you the corresponding links so that you can download and install Kodi 18 in order to configure all the addons that you previously had.
