Specto Fork is a very popular Kodi add-on that is a continuation of the old Genesis Plugin. Genesis, once the most popular add-on, began to break down since it had not been updated in sometime. The code was fixed and called Specto Fork Genesis. Exodus has since replaced Genesis but does not have a favorites folder, so while Exodus and Specto may seem similar there are some differences.

Specto Fork plays both movies and TV shows and gives a server list to choose from for the best feed.
UPDATE: Since FilmKodi Repository has gone down Specto has moved to other repositories such as Kodil. It has not been updated recently and many links need to be tried before a good one is found.
It does still work and if one of the many links popup asking to PAIR click the cancel button until a good one is found.
Until Specto Fork is updated again there are currently better options. Read Here to see the Best Current Kodi Addons.
Using a good VPN with Kodi is always suggested for privacy and security. If you need a good low cost VPN to use with Kodi Try IPVanish it has multiple high speed servers with no throttling or logs.
Be sure to have the Unknown Source box checked as Kodi 17 requires this before installing 3rd party add-ons.

    Any work arounds for it not connecting on step 7? Not my first time setting it up but it is the first time it can’t connect to Kodi server. I can continue but then it doesn’t connect when trying to open from Zip file…

  2. Bub Rubb

    Upon completing Step 5 I get a message saying the network isn’t available.

    Excellent! Thanks. Exodus is being painful at the moment. This works a treat

  6. Teresa

    Each TV channel that I have downloaded It says it gives me a code and I must activate withy my service provider. Is there a way around this? Any advice would be greatly appreciated

    1. E

      Sounds like your service provider is blocking the streams. Just google how to unblock with your particular ISP and it should work

    what are you suppose to do after you install it? it installed but it didnt change anything and there is no more instructions.

    1. roger

      = goto main menu
      = click add-ons
      = click on video add-ons
      = go down the list till you see specto…fork and click it
      = now it should show up in the add-ons like everything else.

  16. Shyanne Will

    Oh my god you guys are genius!!! I was going through Kodi withdrawal when fusion media source stoped working. As long as you guys keep working on keeping open media sources I will be a supporter and FAN! Thanks for making my normal life just a little better every day!

  18. Stephen

    Installed OK, but when I click a TV show I get a message I must go to link below to authorize the device on my network then gives me a web address and to click Pair. Where do I do that?

    1. Mark

      This means nothing most of the time. just close the popup and try again.

  19. Avyi

    OK…so I installed this because of the issues with exodus. I authorized my Trakt, but not able to locate my shows/movies in the menus…anyone?

    1. Avyi

      Ha! nevermind…upon just learning the other parts of the addon, I discovered it is in the menu My Specto.

    if you are getting the dependency error, keep attempting to install it. It failed twice before eventually installing properly.

    1. JohnnyRaven210

      Same here.. Keep trying and it will install….thanks..

  32. SupraLooker

    Whenever I try loading a video, it says something about OpenLoad not being authorized to work on this device yet, and I need to go to to pair the device.

    How do I fix this? What do I do? I can’tfind any internet browser on the Specko

      1. Nuh

        Go to the website on a computer that is connected to the same WiFi as your Firestick. This happened to me and that is all I needed to do.

  33. Noisey

    11:38 eastern standard time – 5 minutes to install and works better than Exodus!

    1. Mar

      Please tell me how you did this. When I click ‘Install’ (step 19) I get a pop up that says “The dependency on script.module.addon.common version”. And then nothing happens. Can someone please explain what I’m doing wrong?

    2. Kumbley

      6:19pm pacific time and I concur. Couldn’t be happier, after 3 previous build fails.

  34. flan

    Does anyone know how to download in Specto Fork?
    I went into the settings and specified the storage location path.
    Then tried the Exodus thing of holding down then releasing the “mouse” button, then the pop-up menu appears and “Download” is supposed to be a choice to select from the menu items. But it’s not there!
    Any ideas what I’m missing here?

  35. Gg

    Thank You. Awesome. Ir World perfecto y ‘‘‘‘‘

    Thank Youuuuu

  36. flan

    Thanks for this. Really. Thanks so much.
    It works. There are hardly any HD streams, but I’ll take what I can get.
    Your instructions were great.

  37. Neil

    Failed to install dependency. In fact I get that with pretty much everything now.

      1. al

        For me it was a combination, installed theme pack and then repeated trying to install specto add on. Took like 10 times.

  38. Mandy

    THANK YOU VERY MUCH! It worked perfectly. I appreciate your time and help!

    1. Mary Bell

      Have you not veen aboe to use fusion or exodus because i havent?

  39. Chris Stefan

    MacBook. Kodi Krypton 17. Spectro will not stream. 6/14/17 at 2237. Im not happy.

  40. Brian H.

    I am having several issues with the latest version of Specto on Kodi 17 using LibreELEC, but the two most annoying are: 1.) incorrect air dates for TV show episodes (month and day seem correct but the year is always the initial season year) and 2.) the long delay before anything happens once I select a source for a show (TV or movie). There is about a 30 second delay (seems like an eternity) before the source loading box appears after selecting a source. Did not have this issue on Kodi 15 / OpenELEC / Specto. I cannot seem to find any configuration parameter to affect either of these things. Any ideas out there? Thank you!

    Note: I left this plea for help on MrKnow’s Github forum back in April but have received no response. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Kodi 17.1 (updated to 17.3 since initial post of issue)
    Specto 2017.04.18.1 (update to 2017.06.11.1 since initial post of issue)
    LibreELEC 8.0.1 (updated to 8.0.2 since initial post of issue)

    1. CP

      It’s a search setting. Search timeout is set to 30 seconds by default. Try reducing in in settings.

  41. ryykk

    Installed on Krytpon 17.3, gen 1 firestick, without issues.

  42. Elle

    I’m having the same problem no streaming available PLEASE HELP!!!!!! SOMBODY ANYBODY

  43. Jack spra

    Got it installed lists movies and everything else but get no stream available

  44. Hannibal

    Make sure you have downloaded the final version of Krypton 17.1. Older versions are being abandoned by streamers and if you are still using Jarvis you will find very little still streaming. Unfortunately Krypton was a step backwards from Jarvis, but its the version you must have. There is a link on Google that says the download is the final version of Krypton 17.1. Don’t worry if its the 32K version even if your computer is 64K. It will still run fine and some laptops with Windows 7 will require a special file from Microsoft if you insist upon the 64k version. Your choice.

  45. Michelle

    I have installed it, but when I click on movies nothing happens. Also installed exodus and it doesn’t work either. What am I doing wrong?

  46. Norman Nicolson

    My Specto fork continually says no stream available . I have checked back and can find nothing wrong(?)

    1. Mike

      I am having the same problem wondering if I should just go back to exodus

  47. Marina

    Got it. Walk through was very helpful, although my Kodi version is Jarvis 16.6, I was still able to navigate my way and install. Thanks.

  48. Kayron

    I have tried installing and I am ok until the part that I have to install from repository. The repo does not come out in the list. Any ideas?

  49. Derrick

    Unsuccessful. Received the same “Dependency” error. Any word on a fix coming yet?
