Specto Fork Not Working

There could be various reasons that prevents Specto Fork to work on Kodi. We have listed 3 of the most common errors faced by Specto Fork users, here they are:


Specto Kodi No Stream Available

When you browse to watch the movie, you click on the various link or sources that pops up for your recommendation. Whenever you click on these links you are then told that stream is not available. This error may drive any Kodi users crazy as they have to repeat the entire step again only to find there is no stream available.



To fix this issue, you need to open Kodi > Go to Add-ons > Video Add-ons > Right click Specto Fork and go to Settings. A box will appear in front of your screen and here you see many tabs located at the left side of the box.

Go to Movies section where you will find the list of sources or websites. These are the websites from where Specto Fork brings you movies. You can Turn OFF the websites whose links are broken.


Specto Failed to Install a Dependency

Specto can be found in many repositories. However, not all repositories update add-ons on regular basis. If any repository contains an older version of add-on it then would fail to install, hence will give ‘Failed to Install a Dependency Error’.



To fix this error, you must install Specto Fork from Kdil Repository that regularly updates add-on on its repository.


Specto Fork Installation Failed

This error is prompted due to many reasons including failure of the internet and shutting down of the repository. If you had previously installed a repository that is currently been shut down, you might see the add-ons listed on its add-on section. However, when you proceed for the installation, it prompts ‘Installation Failed’ error.



Check your internet connection before proceeding towards installing Specto Fork, otherwise the installation would fail again. Another technique that resolves the problem is to check for the repository that is currently working and hasn’t been shut down.


Specto vs Exodus

Specto Fork was initially released to compete with Exodus and similar kodi add-ons that offered free movies and TV shows. However, Exodus became all-time popular add-on because of its resilient team of developers that updated Exodus on consistent basis and made sure it is easier for Kodi users to surf its add-on.

On the other hand, although Specto Fork had success on various occasions but it did not offered its users the same value as Exodus provided. It was lacking in removing bad links, failed to offer frequent updates, whereas, never really stood out as a strong competitor against Exodus.

However, Specto Fork will have a final laugh as Exodus will reach its end in near future after Covenant takes over. Now Kodi users can install Covenant instead of Exodus.


To Wrap Things Up

Specto Fork never had a consistent run as an add-on, but when it is online there is no better add-on to match its features. It is similar to Genesis and Covenant add-on but it has some issues with kodi repositories that lets it down. However, the add-on is working fine lately and is aiming for a smooth sail. In this guide we provided instructions on how to install Specto Fork on Kodi.

  1. David Valentino says:

    Great article but it seems that things have not been working as smoothly for SPECTO, lots of no stream available messages, and lately the streams are really buffering more than usual. The dev has no support links that actually work at least that I know of. If you are able to contact the dev please let them know the addon is in need of some serious updating


    • Nick Michaelson says:

      Hello David, our thoughts the same. SPECTO is a great addon but it needs serious updates. We have contacted Dev and it seems they’re overburdened with requests so they’re not replying back.

  2. James says:

    Specto is my go to addon, the feature I use the most is it’s own favorite folder which I have loaded with all my favorite shows. It is still working well for me, but the hd choices are slowly diminishing.

  3. Janet Downey says:

    I am having issues all over the streaming it’s always saying no stream available and I’m just about to go back to cable.

  4. john says:

    It seems even Covenant is getting either bad links or not very many links, I wish I had youtube tv in my area

    • Nick Michaelson says:

      Hey John, Covenant works fine. This is the Specto Fork Guide. If Covenant have bad links then try Bob Unleashed here.
