  1. I am having no luck with my Kodi build on chromecast. I’ve tried different builds, from real lite to a heavy build, and it’s the same thing, It either kicks me out of kodi and will not start back up, or it will not play any of my real-debrid links. I’ve tried around 15 different builds. My Nvidia plays with no problems, My firestick plays with no problem. The build I am using on my Nvidia and Firestick is the Diggz Xenon Netflix. I just can’t seem to get my chromecast to play with a kodi build.
