Real Debrid Kodi – How to Install & Set up to Fix Buffering

Kodi Fire TV News

Most long-time Kodi third-party TV addons users will agree that broken streams and buffering issues suck mud. This makes Kodi feel like the wrong tool for the job at times, so holds especially true for live streams. Kodi TV addons often use unlicensed streams, then get more traffic than they can handle. Real Debrid Kodi usage provides an elegant solution to these issues. A Real Debrid subscription essentially gives you access to well over 50 different streaming services. “No links available” and perpetual buffering become things of the past. Real-Debrid makes this possible by giving people access to very high-quality file hosts. Then, they limit the number of streamers by gating access. This tutorial article on how to set up Real Debrid Kodi access makes catching your favorite streams a breeze.

You can also use Real Debrid for free, though they limit the free service to what they call “Happy Hours”.

Many government agencies consider much of the content provided through Real Debrid service as illegal to access. The legal implications of November’s shut-downs should make all third-party Kodi TV addons users wary. Check the laws in your area before you access the streams Real Debrid gives access to.

When accessing the Internet from anywhere, even Ashburn, VA, you really should play it safe by using a VPN.

Are There Issues Using Real Debrid With Kodi?

You need to consider all issues associated with the use of Real Debrid, then take precautions. These include remaining within a protective VPN when accessing a majority of the streams provided by Real Debrid. Will it get rid of a majority of your buffering problems? Oh, yeah. Will it enliven streams that seemed dead when accessed from outside their service?
