It is safe to assume that most common internet users wouldn’t know a thing about error.

And why should they?

This error only pertains to people who use an open-source media player called Kodi. Users who can’t live without some Kodi apps know what this error is.

A lot of people who use Kodi apps on a daily basis have asked the question of how to fix error on Kodi, on various online forums and websites.

Step By Step Guide On How To Fix Error on  Your Streaming Kodi Device

The thing that happens with Kodi users when they try to open a list of Kodi streaming servers, is that they get slightly more than 10 URLs/links in the category of available servers.

If they click on any of the servers from the list, they usually get the error. To fix that, you simply have to follow a simple guide to enjoy all your TV shows and movies again. After we show you the steps we will also talk about a fantastic Kodi add-on that we will use as an example in our case.

People who want to watch video content via Kodi usually do so with the help of a list of Kodi streaming servers. These streaming servers are usually available in one of Kodi apps. Most of the time they will see a list with more than 10 links.

Each link would point to a server.

In the list, Kodi will also show the user a vshare origin option. And this is where Kodi users will face the vshare pairing issues. In order to fix those issues, you have to follow the guide we will mention below.

Now, remember when we told you that we will use a fantastic Kodi add-on to use as an example in our fix guide? Well, we’re going to use the Covenant Add-on as our example.

So let’s say you are also using the Covenant Add-on.

Here are the actual steps.

  1. First, open Kodi
  2. Then open the Covenant Addon
  3. After that, from the shown list, choose any type of movie that you want to see
  4. Then simply try to pair that with VSHARE.
  5. Once you try to do that you should see a Stream Authorization error.
    This is the exact error that we have referred to as the error.
  6. In order to fix the error, you need to open up a web browser.
  7. Any web browser would do.Selection_001
  8. Then you need to go to the URL address bar and type
  9. Then hit Enter
  10. After that, your web browser will take you to a website.
  11. There you must click the box that says I’m not a robot.
    That is basically a CAPTCHA test, so pass it by clicking the box.
  12. If you have passed then the box will show a green tick.
    Wait for it to appear (since you are not a bot).
  13. After the website has shown you the green tick in the box, you should click on the option that says Activate streaming.
  14. When you are done with the previous step you must see a pop-up message somewhere on your screen.
    This message will tell you that Your Device Paired Successfully
  15. Now you must make your way back to your Kodi device.
  16. And then try again in order to watch the same video.

Maybe you want to watch free high-quality content not only on your desktop machine but also your Smart TV. Well, guess what? 


You have successfully fixed your Kodi error. There is a chance that you might see the error again, even after you have completed all the steps that we have mentioned above.

If that happens to you then you can follow the next guide which will permanently fix the error for you.


Your ISP (Internet Service Provider) logs everything you do online, movie studios and TV companies hire law firms to go and track illegal downloaders and people that stream pirated content so they can prosecute them with MASSIVE fines. You need to use a VPN to hide your identity (IP) and encrypt your internet traffic so no one will have any idea what you are doing. This comes in handy if for some reason someone using your device accidentally watches something that is prated without knowing.

You can find the best VPN’s for Kodi here.

The second Method To Fix Error On Kodi

If the first method doesn’t work for you then you are free to follow this next method.

  1. First, open your official Kodi app.
    You can usually get this done by clicking the official Kodi icon.
    It is usually placed somewhere on your desktop.
    If you are using a mobile phone then you’ll have to check all your screens to find the Kodi icon.
  2. After you have launched Kodi, we want you to go to Add-ons.
  3. And then to Video Addons.
  4. After that, while you are in the Video Addons window, you should open any Kodi addon that you like.
  5. Then click on Settings
  6. After that hit Select Playback.
  7. And then turn off options such as Hosters With Captions
  8. When you have finished the previous step you must click the option that says Done

And that is basically it.

The error should go away now. In fact, we are confident that the will not bother you in the future in the least bit.

The steps that we have mentioned above to fix the error on your Kodi streaming device are pretty similar to what you might have come across while fixing the openload pair error.

Similar steps also solve other Kodi error problems such as:

  • error
  • error
  • error
  • Openload pair error

Kodi users have fixed all of these errors using the same set of steps. These methods work for all these errors but you do have to make adjustments for different types of errors.

In other words, there are some variations.

Especially in the URL that you will use to fix the error. If you want to fix the pair error then instead of using the link, you should use the link Then follow that link and see where it takes you.

As of now, there is no SINGLE website that provides solutions to all these Kodi errors. Your best option is to follow our error guide and then try to replace the URL with the URL that is associated with your specific Kodi error.

Hopefully, that will fix your Kodi error as well, no matter what its nature. Our research shows that the two methods we have shown you above will work for you for the majority of the time.

These are unique methods that only work if you want to fix the error on your Kodi streaming device.

As you can probably tell on your own, both methods are pretty simple.

You can complete them successfully within no time. More precisely, in about 2 minutes or so. We have already told you that the first method is a temporary fix, not a permanent one.

In other words, if you use the first method to fix error then you will have to apply the solution after every 4 hours.

Why is that?

Because the solution we told you only allow the user to pair with for a time period of 4 hours from the time that you pair. Now, that time might seem a bit short to you.

But consider the fact that in 4 hours you can actually watch pretty much 2 feature-length movies. If you like YouTube a bit too much then you can probably finish 20 to 30 videos on the platform as well.

Again, we would like to mention that the first method fixes the error on a temporary basis. So use it after every 4 hours to make sure that you don’t get the Steam Authorization error from We would also recommend here that you should use an ad blocker while you browse the website because it shows users a lot of ads.

    • Thank you for the comment AM.
      We have to take into account all levels of readers.
      Some are totally new to Kodi and Kodi errors so we have to give them some background.

      • I don’t think adding 5 paragraphs to each bit of advice helps anyone comprehend any more. It’s not even over explained, it’s just bloated and inflated.

        • Thank you for the comment New to Kodi.
          What you need to understand is that not all online consumers are created the same.
          Some have more knowledge about how things work.
          Others don’t know much.
          We have to cover the lowest denominator.
          And that is, Spidey’s aunt may

          • I agree with new to kodi. Paragraph after paragraph of completely pointless text and no, you are not helping that lowest common denominator by doing so because all the text says, over and over again, is how you won’t find an answer to this anywhere else, which we all know is complete rubbish because a simple google search finds hundreds of results, all containing the same “solution”, You also claim that you had to do a lot of research to find this solution – really? I mean if you had to do a lot of research in order to find the solution when Kodi actually tells you how to do it, then I’d suggest that YOU are probably the lowest common denominator and you really aren’t in a position to be trying to “help” people.
            Your second “fix” reinforces that theory – it’s not a fix at all. It’s like suggesting that someone fix a broken TV by unplugging it from the power!
            What you’re trying to fix isn’t even really an error, it’s just an on-screen instruction. The real issue that most people are having right now is that even once you pair on the website, Kodi does not detect this so it continues to ask you to pair. By posting your pointless article, all you are doing is making it harder for people to find a solution to the real problem.

          • Thank you for the comment Tech Ninja.
            We’re currently utilizing our Ninjas to hunt down some solutions for users who are unable to benefit from the ones we have mentioned above.
            We’re sorry if you feel this was a waste of your time.

      • I am new to Kodi and wasting thousands of words repeating how there is a simple method etc makes me want to throw you out of a window and quit Kodi.

        • Hi Me.
          Thanks for the comment (for the comment, not for the content of the comment).
          We’re sorry that you feel like throwing us out of the Window.
          We really are.
          In the future, we will make sure that we do not write guides that make readers want to throw us out of a window.
          And quit Kodi.

      • Hi Tazzy.
        Thanks for the comment.
        All we can say is that if the solution is not working out for you then you either need to get off Kodi or wait for a new solution.
        Thanks again for your patience.

  1. Guys, Zohair not no answer, it’s all to do with vpn server being blocked, so try a different server/country. My heads up to you all ;)

  2. That was the biggest waste of text I’ve ever read, for the first half of the page you just stated the obvious over and over, and then your actual fix wasn’t any sort of fix. The problem people are looking to actually fix is being paired to vshare, and the the link still timing out. But thank you for this completely useless bit of writing. Might wanna change your google tag links.

    • Thanks for the comment Rob.
      We’re sorry this guide didn’t help you.
      But think about it this way.
      Not everything in life has to have a solution.
      Sometimes, the solution is to come to the realization that there is no solution.
      So if our solution did not work out for you, then we are pretty sure there is no other solution.

      • The title says “how to fix… “. The only way to fix something is to solve the problem with a solution–saying everything in life does not need a solution is irrelevant because he’s not talking about everything in life, he’s talking about your article.

        Coming to the realization that there is no solution is not itself a solution. A problem either has a solution(s) or does not. That’s like saying that sometimes having a bunch of hair on your head means you are bald.

        Your claiming to have a fix to a problem, writing, basically, a book saying to try something, and then saying “well this could be an answer, but if it’s not, then there is none. Either way, I’m right”

        • Thanks for the comment Logic McFlawberried,
          We feel that using a VPN service and/or following the “Active streaming” method which we have described should work.
          However, there is always a chance that our methods won’t work for some.
          We don’t know what’s so awful about it.

      • I’m guessing your friends get tired of you talking on and on and on and on and on, defending invalid topics, or just trying to sound ultra intelligent. Your fix is not a fix, your article is bloated garbage and your responses are a waste of time. Take the article down and find a new pastime your not good at this one and you fail to comprehend what people are telling you!

        • Thanks for the comment Derrick.
          We try our best to present solutions that work for the majority of users. However, sometimes solutions don’t work. We’re currently trying to find solutions for those users.

  3. This is the wordiest article ever. Just get to the point, not: who would believe that we can get to the point? Most people can’t get to the point. Finally, we can now get yo the point. Are you ready to get to the point? Well this is why you get to the point.[a bunch of words making this pages long]. Now, the point is this: point. Why? Tubes. Our research shows that the point is just that, the point. [A bunch of words making it so that you can’t scroll to the bottom to find the point]

    I refuse to look any more for the answer here. Who writes like this???

    • Thanks for the comment AgedYearsFromReadingThis.
      We’re sorry that you found this article utterly useless.
      However, we still believe that we have attempted the write the best possible guide on how to solve the problem.

      • And bad singers still believe they should be put through on tv talent competitions. Believing you did a good job after your own readers say they had a difficult time makes you delusional, not misunderstood. WE are misunderstood, not you.

        Ok bye. Had enough of this nonsense website.

        • Hello Me.
          thanks for the comment.
          We’re sorry that our solutions did not work for you.
          And we’re sorry that you think this website is absolute nonsense.
          We hope that in the future, we are able to write guides that are helpful and not nonsense.

  4. “A lot of people who use Kodi apps on a daily basis have asked the question of how to fix error on Kodi, on various online forums and websites.

    And most of the time they get a firm no.”

    So in other (many fewer) words:
    ‘How can I fix this?’
    ‘No. ‘

    Then a whole paragraph each saying:

    ‘most people try to “help” them by asking what is the error.’

    ‘most Kodi users have not faced this error’

    ‘We had to do research to write all these words’

    ‘the error is vshare pair Stream Authorization error.’

    ‘You can’t find answers to this elsewhere’

    ‘The answers you find won’t discuss the solution'(wtf does this even mean?)

    ‘now you won’t have to search for the error’

    Just…. Why? Please explain the reasoning for publishing something like this.

    • Thanks for the comment TheWorst.
      Here is the thing.
      Sometimes people search for things for which there are no easy solutions.
      We have mentioned the solutions that we think should work for the majority of users who visit.
      People who did not manage to fix their issues following our guide, can at least rest knowing the fact that their problem cannot be fixed even after they did everything right.
      Isn’t it better than just roaming the internet and not finding anything no the subject?

    • Thanks for the comment.
      As many readers have already mentioned, is not working for a lot of users.
      So it is a bad idea to give them any information.
      We’re looking for more solutions.

  5. Wow. If kodi asks you to pair your device, you should do it. There. Fixed.
    No. It is not, because it doesn’t work.
    And to be realistic, if you installed kodi, and streaming services from online repositories, you are not dumb enough not to try pairing your device.

    People come here when there is a problem when you pair the device, but it still doesn’t work. Fix that.

    • Thanks for the comment Yakusaka,
      As mentioned before, it seems like some solutions are not working for “some” users. We’re trying to find solutions for such users.

    • Thanks for the comment Thomas.
      It seems like this solution is not working for a lot of our readers.
      We are currently trying to find another solution for those users for whom the above-mentioned solutions did not work.

  6. Solutions don’t work after reading a article with the majority being pure babble and nonsense out side of the common sense fix….waste of time please make no more guides

    • Thanks for the comment James.
      We’re sorry that you feel our guide wasted your time.
      As mentioned in other comments, we’re currently researching other solutions.

  7. Zohair, were you smoking something when you wrote this bloated garbage ?
    It is hugely long winded and doesn’t help anyone. Even your answers to the comments are vacuous & generic. Plus your ‘preset’ reply to most comments “we’re sorry that our solutions aren’t working for some users. We are in the process of finding new solutions.” is just that…a pasted preset generic answer that implies you’ve given one solution and are looking for more. Please refrain from writing articles on anything in the future, you do not have the skills

    • Hi Tazzy.
      Thanks for the comment.
      A solution that worked before may not be working today.
      But are you 100 percent sure that this solution is not working for anyone on earth?
      Maybe it is not working for most people.
      For some people it may be working.
      We don’t know.
      This is the best we can do and there is no doubt that when a better solution comes up, we will mention it here.

  8. this is freakin hilarious…”sorry you feel that way”…Zohair A….you are priceless…most people don’t understand the stupid box they bought…and this is mumbo jumbo to all…I just find it funny because we’re mad at him because we bought equipment we don’t know how to use properly….lol…

    • HI Clode.
      You can just use another Kodi add-on to get rid of the problem altogether.
      Sometimes using a VPN can help solve the situation as well. Use a free one to check if things work out for you.
