How to Fix Indigo Error on Kodi

Do you want to have installed the Indigo add-on on Kodi, but you always see a warning error? That problem is quite usual on Kodi, and in this post, you can learn some ways to fix this issue.

Kodi is a media center, media player, and content manager that can play on a screen almost everything, in virtually any format: music, video, streaming, movies, photos, games. If you have installed on your computer, you may also installed the popular add-ons like the Indigo.

Kodi became so popular mainly thanks to the add-ons, which are extensions that add additional features that weren’t in the original design, similar to Chrome extensions, for example.

The problem is that some of the third-party Kodi add-ons do illegal things, from streaming copyrighted movies or paid football games to downloading commercial music, so Kodi is being chased by film companies, the televisions they broadcast paid football and copyright agencies.

Recently, after laws and anti-piracy measures against Kodi, the popularity of the program has fallen by 80%. According to an investigation, Kodi’s searches on Google have plummeted, mainly because the program is associated with piracy.

However, it must be made clear that Kodi is an entirely legal app. It is a simple player and media manager whose official extensions are legal, and their authors deny illegal material and ask people not to use Kodi for that.

One of the most popular is the Indigo add-on that you have installed on your computer but show you an error.
