The Importance Of Running the SkyStream Updater

Jun 27, 2017 6 months ago No Comments

The SkyStreamTV Updater is an amazingly capable app. We developed it to make streaming much easier. It can fix issues, remove add-ons, and even add newer ones for you. There’s one problem that we’re seeing with the updater. Many people AREN’T running it! That’s a problem for many reasons. Lots of people have outdated versions of Kodi, which causes big problems when you’re streaming. Some add-ons won’t work correctly, if at all. While some add-ons will give unnecessary error messages that are very confusing. This is exactly why it’s so important to run the updater app. It’s why we created it in the first place. Now, we’re not saying you should run the updater every day, but always keep an eye on the date that’s shown on the bottom of the screen in Kodi or FTMC. It will tell you the last time the updater app was updated. This will let you know if you need to run the updater. It’s shown in the below picture. It will save you time and frustration when you stay on top of the latest updates. It can also save you a phone call to our support team. Many common issues you’ll run into when streaming can be solved by making sure you have the latest version of the media center, and by running the updater app. If you’re wondering how you can tell if you’re up to date, go into the SkyStream Updater App and click Continue at the bottom of the screen. You’ll see “Up To Date” next to the version you’ve installed. If you don’t see that, you’ll see that an update is available. In this case run the version of the updater you want to install. Another Tip: Whenever you go into the SkyStream Updater and see the screen below saying there’s an update available, ALWAYS click Install Update. This will ensure you have the latest version of the SkyStream Updater. Some customers say that they’re scared to run the updater because they’ll lose their favorite settings. This is not a big deal and it’s why we have the “save user settings” option on the SkyStreamTV Updater app. You can choose this option to save settings like favorites you’ve added or information for Trakt and Real Debrid accounts. ONE MORE TIP: When running a mandatory update, ALWAYS click Fresh Install. It’s the best way to make sure the update is performed correctly. If you need any instructions for running the updater, CLICK HERE. To learn how to install the latest media center so the updater runs correctly, CLICK HERE. Don’t be afraid to run the Updater, it’s very important to make sure you get the most out of your SkyStream streaming media player. Again, keep an eye on the feed at the bottom of the screen in Kodi, and make sure to follow us on Facebook for more information on updates. Stream On!
