Here at ReviewVPN, we always remind you guys to have a back-up. Meaning, if a problem arises with the Primal add-on, you can always rely on a back-up to act on its behalf. There are a lot of other add-ons that are very similar to Prima but to an extent only. So far, we have seen that Primal has a very detailed interface. It has a lot of sections that users can choose from so in that aspect, Primal is a very good choice. But in case Primal encounters a problem, the following add-ons are very reliable as well. They are as follows:

  • Exodus
  • Exodus Redux
  • Covenant

These alternative add-ons actually came from the same repository as Primal, so you can expect the same quality and performance that Primal gives.

Common Errors

These are some of the things that may cause an issue when installing Primal:

  1.    Unable to connect to URL/Download

Be sure to check that the URL you have typed in is correct. Inputting the wrong URL will indeed produce this error. Also, you have to make sure that you have a reliable internet connection so that your download will not be interrupted. You will also have to check if you have downloaded the right repository to avoid this error. Lastly, always use a reliable VPN to avoid any connection throttling that is caused by your ISP. Check here for the best VPN deal.

  1.     Script Error

This normally happens when Kodi is not installed properly. We have a detailed guide here on how to properly install Kodi on your device. Also, this issue can also arise if your add-on is not installed in the right way. If it was not installed properly, you can always reinstall it and we advise that you refer to the installation steps we have here.

  1.     Kodi Check Log Error

If this error occurs, it only means that your cache is already full. The media cache usually catches clips of the media to make loading faster and along the way, it fills up to the maximum cap. In order to resolve this problem, you simply have to empty your cache. 

  1.     Source not working/slow/frozen

Primal provides streams and it does not store any content on its servers. If a link is not working, just wait for a few seconds for the results to reload and you can pick a link that works. For other solutions, we have provided an in-depth guide that is linked in this post.


One of the main advantages of Primal over other add-ons is that it has an extensive gallery. You can choose what content you’d like to watch. It features a lot of subcategories so that you can navigate what you want to see. This is helpful to users who don’t really have a particular inclination on what to watch. Also, this add-on is very family-friendly. You can watch a lot of stuff with your kids and actually have fun watching what parents also like to see. Primal truly does have a good reputation that is why it is one of the better add-ons we suggest. We hope that this post was enlightening and helpful.
