Unfortunately, there’s no quick fix for this, meaning we’re not going to direct you to a button titled “Clear Catch”.

One that will give you an easy way to clear the cache and fingers crossed, experiencing less of those frustrating content stall moments.

Now, before you rush on ahead, we advise that, preferably someone with experience. That’s someone who is familiar with Kodi follow this tutorial. Why?
