Vortex Kodi Video Add-on Install Guide

RockCrusher and DreamWeaver produced a work of art for your Firestick in the Vortex Kodi video playlist add-on. Vortex includes all the content that has made these two names synonymous with great entertainment. The Kodi community really enjoyed their work on VidTime, and are loving Vortex now with TVAddons and its VidTime add-on gone for the foreseeable future.

Privacy Information

At all times, but especially when utilizing any Kodi 3rd party addon, I am unable to stress enough the importance of protecting yourself with a top quality VPN service to retain your privacy. People running Kodi without a VPN often receive copyright infringement notices for streaming films, sports events, and television shows via many 3rd party add-ons. If you need to keep your streaming private and preserve your anonymity, I highly recommend the use of IPVanish – the best privacy solution available for Kodi users. On top of that, you can try IPVanish free for 7 days. They even have free specialized VPN applications for the Firestick and FireTV!

Quick Vortex Kodi Installation for Advanced Users

If you’ve been through this before on your Firestick or PC or whatever with other add-ons, you may only need the source. You can access the Vortex Kodi add-on within its home repository–rockodi.com–which will have the latest updates first. You can also access both Vortex and its repo through the SuperRepo repository located at srp.nu.

Allow Unknown Sources

Be Safe

I’m absolutely serious regarding the requirement of using this addon only through a VPN. Some of the live streaming especially can land you in hot water. Without a reliable VPN, you are risking your viewing habits and other info being shared with everyone including your ISP, government, and every site you access (including anybody sniffing the traffic of those sites). You are also nearly guaranteed to be receiving “cease and desist” orders from your ISP if you aren’t keeping your access private. I’ve seen this around the web for 20% to 33% off, but here at KFire TV, you can get a 60% discount on the world’s leading VPN.

Install Vortex on Kodi and use a VPN


With the turmoil surrounding much of the Kodi community these days, it’s nice to know high-quality content developers still exist. RockCrusher and DreamWeaver are certainly two of the best, and Vortex shows that they have just entered their prime.
