A popular movies addon for Kodi is 123Movies. In reviewing how to install this addon, we will use the standard version of Kodi, a skin referred to as Confluence. This addon is not supported by Kodi, so posting questions on their forums will not help you.
*Oct 29th – This add-on was updated to version 1.3.1. It includes iSearch compatibility modifications.* You will want a VPN to use 123Movies in the UK.
In this guide, we will walk you through the step by step process of installing 123Movies.
How to Download and Install the 123Movies Add-on
Begin the installation process by going to the System heading of Kodi, and selecting file manager as shown by the green arrow below.
After clicking on the file manager, select the add source option as you see here.
By doing so, a box will display that will ask you for the path like the one below.
In the field where it says none, put in the following web address. http://muckys.mediaportal4kodi.ml/ and click done and ok, then name it mucky, or muckys.
As you see below, mucky is now on the left with other add-ons.
Now, go back to the System screen and and choose Add-ons. The screen should look like the one below.
Next, go to the option that says Install from zip file, and select Mucky, or whatever you called it.
From here, you have three options. Those are cgi-bin, plugin.video.mdwizard-1.1.6.zip, and repo.mdrepo-1.0.2.zip. You will want to choose the third option named repo.mdrepo-1.0.2.zip. However, the version may be different when you see it.
Now then, if you did it correctly, you will see a popup in the lower right hand side of the screen like you see in orange.
Next, go to install from repository.
Select mucky ducks repo.
After selecting that option, you will be taken to the next screen that looks like this.
By clicking on Video Add-ons, you will see the add-ons you have available.
Of course, we are going to click on 123Movies and install.
Once you have installed it correctly, the next screen you will see shows the add-on enabled.
And it’s just that easy to install 123Movies. If you don’t already have a VPN, we recommend using one to unblock geographic restrictions and help protect your privacy while using Kodi.
Note: 123Movies is a banned add-on. This means that the add-on is not supported by the XBMC/Kodi team and has been banned from mentioning on their forum. The Kodi team does not limit what a user can install, but they ask that you not seek support on any of their websites.
