Reliability of Genesis 5 can be instantly increased by having a proper Genesis hosts order. That is, the order that certain file hosts appear when you pick a show or movie can affect your Genesis experience!
NOTE: Genesis hosts order has been updated for Genesis 5.0.8. If you are having trouble finding reliable and working links in Genesis, try the recommendations below! Personally, the default Genesis hosts order have been working fine for me so only try this if you are having trouble streaming with Genesis 5.0.8.
There has been some criticism over Genesis 5 and people have been complaining about unreliability in some of the hosts. Most of this has to do with how good Gvideo was, which used to be the first link for many of the TV shows in Genesis. With Gvideo hit and miss, many other hosts have been having trouble matching the quality.
User rambounchained over on the TVADDONS forums has been using Genesis 5 over the past few days and has come up with a Genesis hosts order that should improve Genesis 5 for everyone. They generally match the Genesis hosts order that I have setup on my Kodi box, and I don’t have nearly as many problems as some of you are reporting so I highly recommend checking them out!
Changing your Genesis hosts order changes which hosts appear first when you try to watch a TV show or movie. Some of the new Genesis hosts that are ranked high are just not as reliable as others right now and this is causing most of the problems.
These Genesis hosts order settings can be changed by hovering over Genesis in your video add-ons, pressing the “c” context/menu button, and going into add-on settings.
