How to Install 13 Clowns Kodi Addon Under 5 Minutes

In this tutorial, I will show you how to install 13 Clowns Video addon on Kodi. You can use the instructions provided here to install this addon on FireStick, Android Mobiles, Computers and all other devices compatible with Kodi.

13 Clowns Kodi addon is one pleasant surprise I stumbled upon only recently. After testing and using it for a while, it made complete sense to share it with you. This add-on not only brings to you the regular movies and TV shows, it also packs some delightful specials. For instance, you will find a whole catalogue of old movies sorted by decades. Then, there are some popular movies delivered as developer’s favourites. The addon also has a Jim Varney special too.

The addon employs the Lambda Scrapers, also used by the very popular Exodus Redux addon. In addition, it also offers an alternative Global Scrapers, just in case Lambda doesn’t work. I will tell you how to switch scrapers later in this guide.

13 Clowns Video looks like a promising Kodi addon. Just about every video I tried to play did play. I had to make some adjustments to the Lambda Scrapers settings, which wasn’t very hard to do. I have also provided step by step instructions to set up Lambda Scrapers to help you fix ‘No Streams’ issue.

How to Install the 13 Clowns Kodi Addon

The installation process is broadly divided into two parts as follows:

  • Part 1: Allow Installation from Unknown Sources
  • Part 2: Install the 13Clowns Video Kodi Addon

The detailed instructions below will cover both the parts. Let’s get started

Part 1: Allow Unknown Sources

This is a prerequisite to allowing the installation of the addons obtained from the third-party sources. These are the addons that are not the part of the official repository of Kodi.

Due to security reasons, such addons are not allowed. But, when you are installing a safe addon like 13Clowns Video on Kodi, you don’t have to worry about this setting. Here is how you change it:

1) After launching Kodi, stay on the home screen and click the Settings option in the upper-left corner (it is the cog icon you should be looking for)

2) Now open the item System settings next

Attention KODI Users: Read before you continue

Kodi Add-ons offer unlimited streaming content, but could also get you into legal trouble if caught streaming copyrighted Movies / TV shows / Sports. Kodi users are strongly advised to always use a VPN while streaming online. A good Kodi VPN hides your identity, bypasses government surveillance, geo-blocked content, and ISP throttling (which also helps in buffer-free streaming).

Let me now guide you through the installation steps. The process is simple. All you need to do is follow each step carefully. Here we go:

Part 2: Install 13 Clowns Addon on Kodi

13Clowns addon installation process involves adding the source, installing the repository and installing the addon from the repository. Here is how it goes:

Before you start streaming with 13Clowns on Kodi, I would like to warn you that everything you stream with Kodi will be visible to your ISP and Government. This means, streaming copyrighted content (free movies, TV shows, Sports) might get you into legal troubles.

Kodi users are strongly advised to connect a VPN while streaming. I always connect ExpressVPN or IPVANISH on all my streaming devices and I suggest you do the same. A VPN for Kodi will bypass ISP throttling, Government Surveillance, and geo-restriction on popular Add-ons.

Quick Overview of 13 Clowns Kodi Addon

That’s what you see on the main-screen of 13Clowns Video. With categories like Movies & TV Shows, it looks like a regular addon for on-demand content. But, it comes with some specials as well. There is 13Clowns Random Favorites, which, as the name suggests, features some popular movies, mostly old.

Then there is the Jim Varney Movies (Monthly Spotlight) section that features the works of the popular actor and comedian.

At the bottom of the main-screen, click Choose Scraper Package to pick one of the two popular scrapers: Lambda Scrapers and Global Scrapers.

While keeping the Providers option on the left selected, choose the desired scraper from the Scraper Provider section on the right. Lambda Scrapers is set up by default. You may click the small down or up arrow next to it to change it to Global.

In the next section, I will show you how to properly set up Lambda Scrapers. It will help if you are getting the ‘No streams’ error while trying to play your favorite videos.

Verdict

I discovered this addon only recently (as I write this guide) and it took me only a quick look to get impressed. 13 Clowns Kodi addon has some special categories hard to find in other popular addons. I am a big fan of classics and it has a solid library of movies from as far back as the 50s.

13 Clowns also serves you the latest movies and TV shows. In simple words, it is a complete package. It streamed almost everything I requested with Lambda Scrapers selected. So, I am assuming Lambda is on the right scraping tracks now.

There is so much to watch and the addon is streaming well. I hope it continues to do so in the future. Well, I will bask until the sun shines. Give it a try. I am confident you will like it.
