Try other Stremio add-ons

If the Stremio add-on is not installed, the last solution we recommend is to try another plugin. And this can happen (with some add-ons’ feature to share copyrighted content) because the add-on’s servers have crashed or the developers have disabled it.

In these cases, we recommend uninstalling the icon that doesn’t work and installing a similar one that offers the same functionality or content… Don’t know which icon to replace the icon that doesn’t install? Well, we invite you to check out these articles that will definitely be useful to you.
