How To Install Beautiful Soup Kodi Addon Dependency

By | December 16, 2018

Beautiful Soup Dependency is used by many Addons to help simplify the coding required.
Sometimes for whatever reason the dependency does not install and needs to be installed manually.
Since it is used by so many Addons this can be a problem if it fails to install automatically.
Why it fails to install can be any number of reasons from hardware to software versions.
One quick work around is to download and install it manually.
The location the Zip file is stored after downloading will vary depending on the hardware used with it usually in a Download Folder.
Window PC users will need to create a Temp folder on C: and copy it from Downloads since Kodi can not see any Desktop Folders.

    hey All, followed all the instructions, the file in on my SDcard, its loaded from ZIP

    went to the repositories to download the MAgicDragon or Exodus and it still says BeautifulSoup4 failed

    the zip (beautiful soup) load hasn’t done anything? still have the issue even after downloading, uploading and installing the BSzip?

    just don’t get it

      Same issue, I think this is to install beautiful soup version 3, and for exodus we need version 4.
      Anyone know where we can find version 4?

        Yes, I do.

        First, you’re going to want to download the ‘Downloader’ app from the Fire TV store if you haven’t already.
        Then open the app and type in the following into the bar that appears in the middle of the screen: “”
        And then click the link that says ‘’
        After it says it downloaded successfully, press ‘Done’ and go to Kodi, click Add-Ons, go to the little package box icon at the top left corner, and click ‘Install from zip file’. Go down to ‘Downloader’ and click it, then find ‘’. Click it.
        After that, it should download and you should be all set 🙂
