ResolveURL Kodi – URL Resolver Fork
Right Guys Just a quick blog on a new Dependency that you may have seen install on your Kodi setup over the last few days whilst you device was going through the addon update process. So What is it? Where has it Come from? Do I need it on my device? What do i need to do with it? Hopefully this quick blog will give you the answers you need. I will try to keep this blog very simple so it easy to understand from beginners to advanced users.
So What is it?
ResolveURL is a Fork of a Kodi Dependency called URL Resolver. So what is URL Resolver? i hear a few of you shouting at your screen. The team have written blogs on it before which can be read HERE if you want more details. But a quick outline below:-
The Url Resolver is a universal tool used for add-ons to play videos stored on file locker websites. Sites such as Gvideo, clicknupload, zshare, dizilab are some of the more popular ones.
The add-ons send a play command to URL Resolver. URL Resolver takes over the process as it has coding that allows it to navigate through these hosts. ResolveURL will work in the exact same way.
Some of you maybe saying Whats a Fork? Have written a blog HERE to explain.
Where has it Come from?
The Dependency maintained and developed by jsergio123, who is a well respect third party Kodi Developer. He previously worked on very well known projects within the scene including the original URL Resolver.
The reason you would have this dependency installing on your device as you probably have or use one of the following addons on your setup. The Developers of these addons have chosen to change over their addons to use this dependency instead of TvAddons developed URL Resolver. I can see a lot of addons moving over to this new resolver but at writing this blog the following addons use it.
- SubZero MMA
Will try and update this list as more convert over to this new dependency.
Do I need it on my device?
Yes you do if you want to continue to use the addons listed above. The Dependency resolves the links and captcha’s so they play in Kodi.
What do i need to do with it?
Not a great deal probably take about 30 secs to a few mins to sort.
You may notice a few messages when using one of the above addons for the first time after it updates to this.
A popup notification that says – there is a problem with URLResolver. Just click Ignore
If you use a premium host account like Real Debrid, Furk, All Debrid linked to your addons your will have to Re-Authorise them which will only take a couple of mins.
Some of you maybe saying what the hell is Real Debrid? I have written a blog HERE which gives you the benefits in your Kodi Setup.
System – Addons – System – Dependencies – ResolveURL – Configure – Universal Resolvers. (Then enter details into your provider and authorise)
To re Authorise Real Debrid follow this in depth blog HERE But obviously do it in ResolveURL rather than URL Resolver.
Below is a list of changes and improvements in the new version of ResolveURL compared to URL Resolver.
The latest version of ResolveURL is v5.0.05 and some of the recent changes to the dependency are as follows:
- Code Base Changes:
- Fix for SSL Context
- Fixes for Python > 2.7.12
- Fixes for Xbox One
- Resolvers Added:
- Resolvers Fixed/Updated
- Resolvers Removed
- Languages Added/updated
Hope this blog answers a few of your questions, i have had a few dozen tweets asking me about this from users that noticed this dependency installing itself on their devices.
