How To Fix Kodi 17 / 17.3 Errors [2017 Guide]

Here’s how you can go about to fix just about any Kodi 17 or Kodi 17.3 error in the 2017 edition of our guide.

Kodi is perhaps the planet’s most popular media center software, and being so popular means that there are plenty of people using the software, which in turn means that bugs or just regular issues will crop up here and there.

It’s the hallmark of any software that sees a lot of use, and Kodi is no different. Because there are some issues that crop up more often than not though, we’ve put together a collection of information on just what you can do to resolve the problems yourself. While there are a few issues and potential fixes below, we will continue to update this post with more as and when we come across them. Hopefully, the information below will help you out, or at the very least, point you in the right direction.

So, with that said, let’s jump right in, shall we?

Check The Log For More Information

Sometimes developers put some truly impressive error messages into their apps, giving users and debuggers plenty of information with which to work.

Failed To Install A Dependency

Screen Size Issue

Fans of home cinema will know that not all screens are created equal, which in turn means that not all devices that output video can know exactly where the image they create will start and end when it is turned into pixels. That’s why devices have ways of zooming their video in and out to accommodate, and Kodi is, thankfully, no different. If you find that corners of your content are missing, or you have black borders, our guide will sort that right out: Fix Kodi Screen Size Issue On 17 / 17.1 Krypton, Here’s How [2017 Edition].
