I get the following error message/notification while try to add addons source URL to kodi:

Unable to connect

Couldn’t retrieve directory information.This could be due to the network not being connected.Would you like to add it anyway?

Yes no

This error solution is common for windows 7,windows 8,windows 8.1,windows 10 and sometime works for android also.

This method also works for kodi 17,xbmc kodi,kodi 16,exodus,firestick,evolve also.

1.Goto system settings in kodi.

5.First of all remove unwanted spaces from infront of the URL and end of the URL.

6.Don’t use capital letters for url.

7.Also check your URL is correct or not.

8.If all the points are correct in your url the problem is solved.


  1. I’m in the same boat. Tried nothing misspelled. This was working fine then I uninstalled it all to start fresh. Network is fine.

  2. Problem #1 you never showed us that it was working in Kodi…. Yea it can be accessed through a web browser but what about in Kodi…. I’m sure we all spelled it correctly but it still dont work

  3. 2.Then click to open “File manager” and right click on “Addsource” option.
    How do you “right click” on a remote?

  4. There was a space at the beginning of the address, this worked when space was removed ty for this video it helped me.

    • Teconz well that is not the cause of the error for most people in the comments section because we still have the problem after fixing or checking the spelling
