How To Fix Kodi No Stream Available
As said there can be multiple reasons which evoke this silly error on Kodi, let’s point out them one by one.
Make sure you cancel out each of the options to find out the actual reason of no stream on Kodi.
Note: Although the No Stream Available error has been somehow rectified on Kodi 18 Leia. If you still face it on your latest Kodi 18 Leia. This guide will help you to rectify it on that also.
Kodi Source Not Available
One of the reasons which cause “Kodi No Stream Available” error is the source you are looking for isn’t available on the internet. Which means, sometimes when you are looking for any particular Movie or TV shows maybe new or old, the source link which is mentioned and the Kodi trying to fetch is removed and not updated on the fresh database. This usually comes when you are trying to access new TV Shows or some old Stuff which are having a poor source location.
There are plenty of add-ons which doesn’t provide freshly updated links of sources and causes “Kodi No Stream Available Error”. That’s why the add-ons like Covenant, Exodus, Placenta, Gaia along with few others are more popular in the community. They keep their database updated and provides you a fresh link for the source.
It would be far better if Kodi resolves “Kodi No Stream Available” Error array index and tells if the actual reason for it is No Source or something else.
Another reason which can cause “Kodi No Stream Available” is a problem with your Internet connection. The network problem can be internal as well as external, you can cancel out both of them by following few steps.
Internal Network Problem
If that’s the case then you can reset your wifi router easily and see if it resolves the error.
Things to do for resetting your router:
- Unplug your wifi router’s power cord.
- Wait for a while (around 2 minutes).
- Plug it again and check if the error is gone.
Basically what happens, sometimes our dynamic IP can cause a conflict and by resetting and waiting for a while there are chances of assigning a new IP in the meantime. which has solved the problem for me several times.
You should check your internet connection speed as well, sometimes a less download speed takes time to fetch the source resulting in connection timeout which eventually throws “Kodi No Stream Available” Error.
Note: If you have slow internet speed, configure your addons “providers/session timeout” by increasing the time limit inside the addons settings tab.
External Network Problem
If the above things are working fine, then there are chances that your ISP is restricting the connection between the source and Kodi. That’s why we suggest every time about using a VPN, a good VPN solves multiple problems and bypass them easily.
Basically what does a VPN do is that it hides everything which has gone through it from the internet service provider and your ISP doesn’t get the information about your particular data consumption.
Kodi Addon Isn’t Working
Apart from all of the reasons, this is also a common issue which can lead to “Kodi No Stream Available” error. Actually, the developers or team behind any addons keep them updated with changing algorithm and source links. And when they stop updating it, the addon won’t be able to fetch the updated sources which eventually leads to this error.
Apart from popular add-ons, there are so many add-ons which are coming with the good and updated algorithm and functioning links. So one in while just check out the updates and new add-ons.
Try Alternative Add-ons/Source
If your network is working fine and there isn’t any problem from the ISP as well, we would recommend trying the alternate add-ons and other sources of the title which you are looking for. As the internet is full of content and there is always a chance of multiple copies of the title which you are looking for from different locations on the internet.
So these were the reasons for “Kodi No Stream Available” and its fixes. Whenever I faced it, most of the times these quick checks have helped me in solving the error. Also if you have found any other hack or trick for fixing “Kodi No Stream Available” error than do share it in the comment section.
