How To Use And Install Real-Debrid on Kodi / Firestick

I’ll show you how to install and use Real-Debrid on Kodi and FireStick apps in this guide. When you add Real Debrid to your Kodi or FireStick apps, you gain access to a plethora of new streams for a specific film or television show.

It is probably the most popular multi-hoster on the Kodi platform, as it supports almost all commonly used addons. Real Debrid on Kodi and FireStick also includes a slew of exclusive full-HD stream sources. It has the potential to alter your Kodi experience completely.

Real-Debrid is not an addon in itself but a tool that enables free downloads via the addons you already use. To enjoy buffer-free HD streaming on Kodi, read the complete guide.


Kodi is well-known for delivering high-quality content via hundreds of hosters located throughout the world. All that is required is Kodi installation and configuration of a few of the best Kodi addons.

These extensions function similarly to aggregators, providing access to multiple streaming links for requested videos. The Kodi platform supports a wide variety of aggregator addons. On Kodi, you can find hours and hours of entertainment for free.

That is fantastic! However, there is a minor snag. You may have noticed that most streaming options for your favorite film or television series are low-resolution. Numerous hosts offer 720p or lower quality. However, 1080p full HD streaming is difficult to come by. Even when full HD streams are available, they are frequently unavailable.

With advancements in hardware and display technologies, faster internet connections, and the world already adopting 4K resolution, many of us would prefer at least 1080 full HD resolution. It is where Real Debrid enters the fray.

The same is true for the FireStick apps. While free streaming links may allow you to view content, they are not always reliable. However, when used in conjunction with Real Debrid, the viewing experience is significantly enhanced.

What is Real-Debrid

real debrid

Real Debrid is a multi-hoster that provides its subscribers with access to premium streaming sources that are not available to the general public.

The company advertises itself as the ‘Unrestricted Downloader,’ which enables you to optimize your download speed to the maximum capacity of your Internet connection while also providing access to premium hosts.

With Real-Debrid enabled, you’ll gain access to a slew of new (and previously undiscovered) streaming sources.

Real Debrid is NOT an addon; it is merely a multi-hoster that expands your existing list of sources. It requires that you already have at least one of the supporting addons installed.

Fortunately, Real Debrid is supported by a number of popular Kodi addons, including Exodus Redux and Venom, as well as several FireStick apps, including Cinema HD, Bee TV, and CatMouse APK.

If you’re looking for additional new and working sources for full HD streaming, high-speed downloads, and a fix for Kodi buffering issues, you should consider Real-Debrid.

This service is compatible with a variety of media platforms. We will learn how to use Real Debrid on Kodi in this guide.

How to Create a Real Debrid Account Online

We’ll begin by registering for Real Debrid’s services online and creating an account. This account is required to activate Real Debrid on Kodi (we will talk about it in more detail later).

To begin, let us learn how to register for Real Debrid.

Before you join Real-Debrid, I’d like to inform you of something that the majority of people are unaware of. Users have the misconception that when they use Real-Debrid, their streaming activities are private because they pass through Real-Debrid servers.

However, if you read Real-Privacy Debrid’s Policy, you’ll notice that it explicitly states that it logs users’ data, including their IP address, geolocation, and download activity.

Additionally, it states that it may disclose users’ data for legal purposes. The following is a screenshot of Real-privacy Debrid’s statement as it appears on its website.

The only and best option if you want to remain anonymous while streaming and avoid your personal information falling into the hands of legal authorities is to use a Kodi VPN.

I use and recommend ExpressVPN, which is the most secure and fastest Kodi VPN.

Now that you’re aware of the danger allow me to demonstrate how to obtain a Real-Debrid account for Kodi.

How to Install Real Debrid on Kodi (18 & 17.6)

Installing Real-Debrid on Kodi is a simple process. However, You must take each step correctly. Therefore, please read this guide thoroughly.

Note: The following procedure is for Kodi 17.6 on Windows 10. I’ve highlighted the differences between Kodi 18 and this version. Because the Kodi interface is nearly identical on all devices, including the Amazon Fire TV Stick, this method will work. If you’re new to the Fire Stick, here’s how to jailbreak firestick.

The Kodi developers have announced the official release of Kodi 18.9 Leia. You may continue to use Kodi 17.6. If you wish to upgrade to Kodi 18, see how to update Kodi and obtain the most recent version of Leia.

Launch Kodi on your device and navigate to the Settings menu (cog icon on the top left as in the image below)

kodi home

Next, click on ‘System settings’ (or simply ‘System’ in Kodi 18).

kodi system settings

If it says ‘Basic’ (or anything other than ‘Advanced’) on the bottom left, next to the Cog icon, keep clicking until you see ‘Advanced’ (see the two images below)

Now, on the left sidebar, click Add-ons (tap on touch devices or hover the mouse over on a computer)

On the right, click ‘Manage dependencies.’

kodi manage dependencies

Scroll down and select ‘URLResolver.’

It is critical!! Specific addons, such as Exodus Redux, rely on the ResolveURL dependency rather than the URLResolver dependency. You may find one or both.

If you see both, repeat steps 6 to 17 for URLResolver and ResolveURL.

Note: You MUST first install the Kodi addon if you want to use it with Real Debrid.

On the next screen, select ‘Configure.’

On the subsequent screen, click ‘Universal Resolvers’.

The screen will now display a code (see image below), which you must enter at https://real-debrid.com/device.

What you need to know is as follows:

  • The code is only valid/active for two minutes 
  • You cannot copy and paste the code. You will need to enter it manually.
  • To authorize the services on Kodi, you must log in to your Real-Debrid account (the one you created when you signed up for the service) on the website.
  • Code is NOT case-sensitive.

The tutorial demonstrated is how to add Real Debrid to Kodi 18 Leia or 17.6 Krypton.

After that, allow me to explain how to use Real-Debrid with Kodi.

Before you begin streaming with Kodi Addons / Builds, I want to emphasize that everything you do on Kodi is visible to your ISP and government. IT means that streaming copyrighted content (television shows, free movies, and sports) may land you in hot water with the law.

We strongly encouraged Users of Kodi to use a VPN when streaming. A VPN for Kodi will allow you to avoid ISP throttling, government surveillance, and geo-restrictions on popular addons. I always connect ExpressVPN to all of my streaming devices, and I recommend you do the same.

ExpressVPN is the world’s fastest and most secure virtual private network. A 30-day money-back guarantee backs the product. That is, you may use it without restriction for the first 30-days, and if you are dissatisfied with its performance (which is highly improbable), you may request a full refund.

Notice: We do not advocate for violating copyright laws. However, what if you unintentionally stream content from an unauthorized source? It is not always easy to distinguish between legitimate and illegal sources.

Therefore, before you begin streaming on Kodi, here’s how to set up a VPN in three easy steps.

Step 1: Subscribe to ExpressVPN HERE.

Step 2: Download and install the ExpressVPN app on your device by clicking HERE.

Step 3: To connect to a VPN server, click the Power icon. That is it. With the best and fastest VPN for Kodi, your connection is now secure.

How to Use Real Debrid on Kodi

With most addons, you don’t need to do anything extra to use Kodi Real Debrid once you’ve signed up for the service and authorized it in the Kodi application. Open the film or television show you wish to watch, and you will notice several new streams have been added. Real-Debrid is compatible with the vast majority of content-provider addons, including popular ones such as Covenant, Exodus, and many others.

The two images below demonstrate the difference in the number of streams available before and following the addition of Real Debrid to Kodi. We can see that numerous additional streams contain Real Debrid (the stream source for Real Debrid includes the character ‘RD’).

Prior to Kodi’s Real-Debrid:

kodi real debrid

Kodi After Real-Debrid:

What if Real-Debrid is Not Enabled Automatically?

However, if the RD streams not in the list for a particular addon, you must enable it. Precisely the case with the Neptune Rising addon. If you are using Neptune Rising (or any other addon that by default disables RD), you must take the following steps:

Navigate to Add-ons > Video add-ons from the Kodi home screen and select Neptune Rising.

From the list, select ‘Tools.’

neptune rising tools

Select SETTINGS: Providers.

On the left sidebar, click ‘Providers.’ Now, by moving the toggle to the right, enable ‘Enable Debrid Providers.’ Click ‘OK’ (remember to do so).

Now you can access the film or television show you want to watch. You’ll notice the addition of new streams from RD.

How to use Real Debrid in conjunction with FireStick Apps

I’m assuming you’ve already signed up for a premium account with Real Debrid. If you are unsure, please refer to this section of this guide.

Real Debrid works with a variety of third-party FireStick applications. Installing Real Debrid in an app is significantly easier than installing it on Kodi.

To demonstrate, we’ll use Real Debrid in conjunction with the Cinema HD V2 app. However, the steps are nearly identical for other compatible apps.

How to do it is as follows:

Launch the app with which you wish to pair Real Debrid.

The Real Debrid option is in the app’s Settings. The Settings menu is also accessible from the main menu.

The following is a screenshot of Cinema HD with the menu option in the top-left corner selected.

Conclusion of Real-Debrid on Kodi

That concludes the setup of Real-Debrid Kodi. You can now begin exploring the new streams to watch full-HD versions of your favorite movies and shows. I’ve been using Real-Debrid for a while, and I believe it’s worth the money. I have encountered only a few instances where I was unable to get some streams to work. However, I could always switch to a different source. After all, RD expands my add-ons with a slew of new streams. I hope you found this article to be informative.
