What are Kodi dependencies and how to manage them


Let s see what the Kodi multimedia center units really are and how we can manage them properly

As most of you will know, when we talk about the popular Kodi multimedia center , we are referring to an open source software that we can download for free but which, Despite all that is said about it, in principle it has nothing to do with piracy of copyrighted content, so it is legitimate and legal software.

However, much is said about it when issues related to the consumption of video content are mentioned illegally, since this is a tool widely used for this type of practice. But nothing is further from the truth, in fact the top managers of the project itself have repeatedly wanted to make it clear that they are against this type of pirate practices, while ensuring that what each user does with their software , is the responsibility of it, not the creator of the program.

And it is that much of the controversy in this regard is given by the add-ons or complements that are integrated into this program and that greatly increase its functionality. It is not that these elements have anything wrong, since many of them have been designed to improve the experience with Kodi and at the same time increase their versatility. The problem comes with those that are created to access pirate content quickly and easily; That's where the problems begin and the controversy with the program.

In fact, the aforementioned add-ons and their corresponding repositories are among the elements of which in a more usual way we speak when referring to the multimedia center , but in these lines we are going to talk about another less known but equally important element in some cases when dealing with Kodi .

What are the dependencies in Kodi and what do they give us

Specifically here we are going to refer to the elements called dependencies , which sometimes many confuse with the own complements of the program, but which are really two different things, let's see the reason for no doubts about it To begin with, we will say that a dependency on the software that acts as a multimedia center, Kodi, is actually an addition that is part of some of the aforementioned add-ons or add-ons and that are responsible for improving them or increase its versatility.

Thus, the dependencies are code snippets that integrate Kodi add-ons to improve sections such as its interface, add new additional features not supported natively, to increase its content , or add aspects related to the configuration. At the same time we must take into account that there are both mandatory dependencies so that the add-in in question can work correctly, while there are optional ones and that only improve that software from its original version.

Without However, the fact that the dependencies are often confused with the complements as such that we installed in Kodi, has an explanation. And it can be the case that we run into certain add-ons that in turn must be part of other add-ons so that they work correctly, which could be called an “add-on dependency”, of there the confusion that sometimes generate these elements in particular. But in reality they are two different things that are actually managed in the software itself, independently, as we will see below.

How to manage and manage dependencies in the Kodi software

Therefore, to be able to properly manage the dependencies to which we are hereReferring, the first thing we should do is access the own section available in the center multimedia . In this way and for all this, first we open the program as such and, once loaded on screen , at the top of it we click on the control that is represented by a cogwheel in order to be able to access the settings of Kodi configuration.

Once in this section, we choose for the shortcut that says "System", in which we click and, placing ourselves in the option called "Add-ons" from the list that appears to the left of the new window, in the right panel we can already access what we are looking for , so we place ourselves with the mouse on “Manage dependencies”. Well, then a list will be loaded with all these dependencies that over time have been added to the Kodi add-ons , so we can update them, specify that in the future update themselves, disable them, or uninstall them.

Of course, we will tell you that we must be careful with these last two options that we have mentioned, or at least know for sure what we are doing, since the simple act of deactivating or eliminating a certain dependency, could directly influence a certain complement that we usually use, even leaving it unused or with an incorrect functioning .
