  1. when I stream with add ons why does it take so long to save to the real-debrid cloud and some times it just wont play the movie is there a setting that I dont have on within the app Im lost please help Im on a powerful computer with windows 10 and a fast internet connection

    1. I also have wondered about the saving to Real-Debrid cloud. I’ve done it before and it always looked like it did nothing. But, when I think about it, it’s probably downloading the whole video onto the Real-Debrid cloud servers which I’m sure would take a little while. Maybe I haven’t been patient enough. Does it ever show up for you even if you check much later?

      1. your instructions say go to Google Play Store and download the AFTV esfile, then the downloader, I don’t even see either one at google play..when I tried to just download it like I used to, it kept going to amazon for downloading the downloader and I can’t do that, I am trying to put those 2 apps on my android tv box..thanks for any help.

        1. Ok, first of all, it sounds like you’re commenting on a post that is unrelated to what you are trying to do. This post is about the OpenWizard add-on, but sounds like you’re trying to install Kodi on a Fire Stick?
          Secondly, if that’s what you’re trying to do, then if you happen to have Google Play Store (because you or someone else side-loaded it), then you can simply install the Kodi app from there. The reason for the Downloader app and all that is to work around not having the Google Play Store on Fire TV devices.

      1. thanks for your reply.I’m trying too get a programe to get 50s and 60s tv serials.Ive clicked on everthing in main menu but can’t get any further.

  2. Hi Nathan, thank you for this awesome tutorial. I had sucessfully installed your repo and able to view all zip files but not able to download the OpenWizard. I had tried both version and still failed. I also tried on TheCrew but failed too. Please advice. Thank you

  3. Hi Nathan !

    Nice tracker you have for Kodi addons !

    Question on OpenWizard cleaner:

    What does the Whitelist do here?

    Is this for backups and fresh installs?

    Or, if I don’t include all the addons, these add-ons would then be deleted upon next boot?

    I got 180 addons/scripts listed and it is a pain since there is no All or None button- drinfernoo stopped development last month and hasn’t replied this GitHub inquiry.

    Please help …

    1. Yeah, drinferno transferred ownership of the OpenWizard add-on to the a4k-openproject. I updated the connection on my tracker to track that github repo now.

      Anyway, the add-ons whitelist basically lets you specify a list of add-ons that won’t get wiped if you do a fresh start wipe or a build install using OpenWizard.
