How To Fix Error On Kodi: Error Script Failed Solved – Formerly known as Xbox Media Center (XBMC) and was original created for the Microsoft Xbox, Kodi is a free and open-source (GPL) cross platform software media player which allows users to play, stream and view music, podcasts, videos and other digital media files. These can be from local and network storage or directly from the internet.
Today, almost everyone owns some form of device, whether it be a mobile phone, a tablet or a smart TV, that can play/stream/watch games, movies, music or TV series. In fact, these devices can handle any digital media file that you throw at them provided they have the right software installed. Kodi provides that capability and more.
Aside from being free, Kodi is managed by XBMC Foundation (non-profit) and has an ever-growing community of developers and followers that contribute to further improve the software. This is the reason behind Kodi’s flexibility and success. Customizing Kodi is a breeze and you can do this by installing addons. If you are a bit lazy, then you can install a build that someone has already created.
If you have using Kodi for sometime, you may have encountered some errors, specifically the most common “errorscript failed“. This Kodi addon error can be caused by Kodi cache buildup or the version of Kodi not supporting the repository files. Just follow the steps outlined below to solve this problem.
