  1. Wow thats amazing, was trying to watch a video before I done this and it would only cache maybe 30 seconds at a time but now it done almost a 1/4 of my hour long show in about a minute, thanks so much, no more buffering 😀

    • +ΣΩΤΗΡΙΟΣ ΠΙΤΑΡΑΣ Delete the file which is located in the Profile Directory under File Manager. You will see it there titled advancedsettings.xml. Don’t forget to restart it afterwards.

    • My kodi 17.3 is now useless. I ran it correctly. I rebooted and nothing works now. How do i eliminate this add on?

  2. Works perfect thanks. This has been the only way that worked. None of the how to’s using advanced settings / addons worked at all. My pc can now buffer a full movie. Takes around half an hour to buffer a full movie to system memory. This wouldnt be possible on a cheap kodi box due to lack of ram. My pc has 8 gigs so can load a full HD film.

  3. I’m running a titanium build but can not get this to work it says it’s installed but its not downloading when I pause the movie any ideas on how to fix?

  4. You gave no information. People have different Hdd/ram sizes and without knowing which you set it to and the limit that could be bad for some devices. A pi 3 only has 1 hdd and sometimes only a 4gb sd card. How does this work on such a set up streaming 1080 or firesticks?
