Kodi is a great media center to have with lots of Addon and Builds that can be installed.
The one downside is these plugins can go down or stop working cluttering up Kodi from working well.
A simple way to fix this is to start over and clear out a Build or any other old left over information.
Uninstalling and reinstalling Kodi can work but sometimes information is picked up again which can cause issues.
There is a nice Addon called Fresh Start which clears / wipes all the old data from Kodi giving a factory default install.
If you install a lot of Builds it is a good Addon to download and have on hand and quickly install from internal storage when needed.
If you have a Build installed it is much easier to change the Skin back to the default Kodi skin Estuary to follow the instructions below.
Each build will be different but the Skin options are usually found under Settings–>Interface Settings.
Using a VPN with Kodi is always recommended for privacy and security. Try IPVanish which is Kodi friendly, has no logs, and unlimited bandwidth.
