Is your Real Debrid not working on Kodi? Are you seeing no Real Debrid streams in Kodi? Read some of the causes and solutions in our guide and get premium working media links again today.
Real Debrid is a premium file locker service, which gets you access to premium uploaded files. For a single fee, you get access to over 20 different file hosts and servers. In Kodi, these premium file hosts offer more bandwidth than free options. Using Real Debrid means that you will see faster and higher-quality links. The service is solid and most issues with Real Debrid not working are due to corrupted Kodi settings.
So, if you are having Kodi problems with Real Debrid not working, especially if you had Real Debrid working in the past and it doesn’t anymore, we have a fix for you.
Kodi services that decode these premium file locker links and grab the raw media file are called Resolvers. There are two common Kodi resolver programs: URLResolver and ResolveURL. Both essentially work the exact same and addon developers are free to pick and choose the option they would like to include. It is safe to have both installed and they work separately from each other.
The fix for Real Debrid not working can be performed in both URLResolver and ResolveURL and involves resetting the function cache. Check out the fix below and let us know on Twitter or Facebook if we can help you out!

Clearing the local DNS cache is critical for ensuring you have the most recent cache your ISP provides. To clear the local DNS cache on Windows, go to Start > Command Prompt, and type in “ipconfig /flushdns” and press enter.
And then wait for the “Successfully flushed the DNS Resolver Cache” message.
If you find that the Real Debrid is not working on your device, but you can access it from another device or even on a 3G network, consider choosing an alternative DNS service like Google Public DNS or OpenDNS. These are highly reliable and free public DNS services.
