(New) Updated Oct 29 2017: Icdrama 1.7.0 released. You should be able to watch dramas again. Thanks to developers.

(Old) Updated Oct 25 2017: Developer aznhusband is looking into the problem. Let's wait for the new solutions.

(Old) Updated Oct 24 2017: Many people having "Icdrama Error" and not able to play video. Let's wait for fixes.

(Old) Updated Oct 17 2017: Icdrama 1.6.1 Released. A new Animation section included.

If you have icdrama installed earlier, then you can force update to 1.6x.

For those who has the problem installing icdrama repo, please make sure you have deleted old icdrama repo from cthlo completely from your tv box before installing aznhusband's repo.

Update is automatic if you have the repo previously. If not, go to https://aznhusband.github.io/ and install repo then icdrama add-on. You can also give RSS Media Reader a try to watch dramas using Android or iOS app.

Finally I have time to rewrite tutorial how to install icdrama under Kodi 17 Krypton. Icdrama is a popular addon to watch movies and dramas from Hong Kong, Taiwan, China and Japan.

    Hi carol,

    Thanks! Yes I did do the c thing bt for some reason only version 1.4.0 is shown as an option. For the repository source file it is https://aznhusband.gtihub.io/ right? Just want to make sure I got it correct. Thanks! Will also post this in the forum.

    Hello Li,
    At icdrama icon, press C from keyboard. Select information and should see version 1.4. then select update and pop up window should you 1.5. Select that to update.
    If not the case, you might need to delete and reinstall.
    Please post your questions in Forum as i will close this comment section soon.

    Hello Dan,
    One of the reason could be you still have the old icdrama by cthlo. If yes, you need to delete completely the addon and repo from cthlo. Only then you install repo from aznhusband.
    This is because both version using same meta data and they conflct each other.
    If still have problem, can you message me at https://www.facebook.com/kodi888/messages/ so that we can discuss from there?

    Hi Carol H
    I have done what u said and a whole of of other things but somehow the aznhusband-kodi-repo after install is always empty when I gointo video add-ons. :(

    posted by Dan Tuesday, 29 August 2017 03:28 Comment Link
  • Carol H.

    Hello Dan,
    The icdrama from aznhusband requires URL resolver. You might want to try this :
    Download icdrama repo zip file from https://aznhusband.github.io/repo then copy this file to your USB, then insert USB to tv box.
    Open Kodi, go to SYSTEM->settings->add-ons->install from zip.
    From the pop up menu, search your USB, then find this fild and click.
    You should get aznhusband repo in "install from repository".
    then in aznhusband repo ->video add-ons->icdrama
    I tried and works for my tv box. Let me know ya.

    Hello Abby,
    You can download the zip file of v1.2.6.1 into thumb drive from PC, then insert into usb port, then use Kodi to read the file. This will overwrite your old v1.2.6 in the system.

    To make Icdrama work again you just need to install the new icdrama update version 1.2.5. Once I have updated to the new version the links are working again on my kodi.

    Regarding the below remarks,
    "Updated Feb 4 2017: Icdrama was reported down due to Unresolved URL error. If you are having the same problem, then best action is to use other add-on, for now.", what do you mean by 'use other add-ons'? Is there another addon-ons for TVB dramas/movies?

    1) cthlo could not be contacted anymore. You might want to use other add-ons.

    Don't use your url.
    Instead, go to

    Hello Tan,
    I install icdrama on Kodi 16 (Jarvis). You might want to uninstall and reinstall again.
    Good luck
    Carol.
