If you’re a regular user of Kodi Krypton, while it’s a great media management software, you know it has its imperfections. One of which is it sometimes frustratingly does not load content. Or when it does, the streaming/playback is less than gratifying, leading to a quick switch off and the hunt for other entertainment. Now, if that’s you, we’re going to show you how to clear the cache in Kodi, and hopefully, improve things.

No Clear The Catch Button

Unfortunately, there’s no quick fix for this, meaning we’re not going to direct you to a button titled “Clear Catch”. For whatever reason, the developers of Kodi Krypton have failed to include such an easy solution. However, thankfully, there is one way of doing it, but it does require some fiddling and an add-on installation. 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? By all means, have a go if that’s not you, but, you may be tripped up by the terminology used. And that’s something which a familiar person would not be. So it would be worthwhile having Google to hand, that way you can search for the terms, should you become confused.
