In this post, I want to share with you a much easier way to install Kodi add-ons than the traditional method. All you need is an add-on called Indigo.
I’ve written a lot of tutorials on how to install various Kodi add-ons. They’re all done by installing the add-on’s repository from Fusion, and then installing the add-on from it’s repository.
The problem is that when you hear of an add-on you want to try, you have to search for a tutorial to tell you which repository it belongs to.
Well, the folks at TVADDONS.ag (the host of Fusion and most of the best Kodi add-ons) have a handy utility add-on called Indigo. It has a really nice feature to easily browse and install add-ons with just a click.
Indigo’s add-on installer section has nice categories for browsing including Featured, Live TV, Sports, Kodi Skins, etc. You can search for add-ons, or browse them alphabetically.
Also, what I like about installing add-ons with Indigo is that it doesn’t just install the add-on, but it also automatically installs the repository for that add-on so that your add-on always stays up to date.
How to Install the Indigo Add-on for Kodi
- Add Fusion as a Source in Kodi’s File Manager
- Go to Add-ons > My Add-ons
- Go up a folder by selecting the 2 dots (..)
- Select Install from zip file
- Select Fusion (or whatever you called it in the file manager)
- Select begin-here
- Select plugin.program.indigo-x.x.x.zip
- Be patient because this takes a while to install in the background. Wait for the notification that the add-on is installed
- Go back to the home screen > Add-ons > Indigo
How to Install Add-ons Using Indigo
- Open the Indigo Add-on
- Go to Addon Installer
- Browse the folder to find the add-on you want to install and select it
- You will be prompted to confirm if you want to install the add-on and its repository. Select Install
- Done! You should now see the add-on in the appropriate home screen section
- NOTE: Some plugins require you to restart Kodi, so you should do that after installing add-ons
