With MP3 Streams you will be able to listen to almost any album or song you want, thanks to its highly organized content.

It's not just the content that MP3 Streams addon Kodi offers, but also the organized way in which it is presented.

I tried this and it managed to hang my system each and every time I tried to open it. I’m still using Kodi 14.2 as my android box cannot handle a more current upgrade. Perhaps this MP3 ony works on more current Kodi releases.

I remove the MP3 player and my system is back to working well.

Alejandro February 17, 2016 - 4:48 pm

Hello, what box are you using? I have used MP3 Streams with no issue on Kodi Helix 14.2.

Alex March 15, 2016 - 1:32 pm

My mp3 stream shows music but when I try to play it, it says it’s 100% downloaded but the bar doesn’t show up and the music doesn’t play

Hello, thanks for commenting,

Please right click your addon, select Add-on settings, and then enable Use alternative Gotham playing method (pre-cache). On the line below that, set Amount to pre-cache to the max value you can (I have it set on 1000K). Please tell us if it makes a difference.

If the problem persists, please post on our htpcBeginner support forums, to assist you further.

I am experiencing the same issue that Alex says is. I have done everything you have suggested and the problem still persists.

I am using Kodi 16.0-RC3 and MP3 Streams version 1.1.9. Any suggestions you may have would be appreciated.

Alejandro April 6, 2016 - 11:41 pm

Maybe try disabling the Golden path option as well?

iDougie April 9, 2016 - 10:09 am

Thank you for your reply. Its been a busy week and now I finally got back to this. I had already disabled Golden path. However, I now see that the Add-on has been updated to version 1.2.0. This seems to have cleared up my problem – MP3 is now streaming! Thank you to all!

Alejandro April 12, 2016 - 12:01 pm

Hello, on the addon options, disable Choose Golden Path and enable Use alternative Gotham playing method. This might fix your issues.

Hi, i have tryed all the above suggestions and i can only get 37 seconds of music to play !!!! I have a T9 android box can anyone help please. Thanks Ray

Alejandro May 16, 2016 - 10:21 am

Hello, this addon is heavily dependent on your connection speed. On bad days with my connection I experienced drops on playback as well. My suggestion would be, select a song, and pause it. Wait for it to load more of the song, then play it. See if that mitigates the issue, and please keep us posted. Thanks!
