Real Debrid Not Working on Kodi Solution

Is Real Debrid not working inside of Kodi for you? Are you seeing no real debrid streams in Kodi? Read some of the causes and solution 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 is 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!

Kodi Real-Debrid Not Working Solution

URLResolver Fix

  1. Launch the URLResolver settings by navigating from the home menu to SYSTEM > Add-ons > SYSTEM > Dependencies > URLResolver > Configure
  2. Click the Reset Function Cache option.


ResolveURL Fix

  1. Launch the URLResolver settings by navigating from the home menu to SYSTEM > Add-ons > SYSTEM > Dependencies > ResolveURL > Configure
  2. Click the Reset Function Cache option.

Direct Addon Real Debrid Not Working Fix

If you are using a custom skin, the steps above may not work to get you into your resolver settings because menus may be different. In that case, you can usually go directly through each Kodi addon to reset the cache for Debrid. Most multi-source addon forks put links right into the settings which you can access as follows:

  1. Launch your chosen Kodi.
  2. Click Tools
  3. Click Settings: Accounts
  4. Under Accounts, scroll down to Debrid Service and click on URLResolver/ResolveURL Settings.
  5. Click the Reset Function Cache option

How to Reauthorize Real Debrid in Kodi

If resetting your cache does not fix your Real Debrid not working issues, you can manually reauthorize your account again as follows

  1. Launch your URLResolver/ResolveURL settings by using step 1 in the first two guides above or by going through the direct addon method also posted above.
  2. Under Universal Resolvers scroll down to Real-Debrid and click on (Re)Authorize My Account.

Follow the instructions on your screen to visit the Real Debrid authorization page and re-sync your account. When you are done authorizing, make sure you set the Real-Debrid priority to 99 or less (so that they appear at the top).


Hopefully now your Real Debrid not working errors are fixed and you no longer get Kodi no stream available either.

  1. Getting Real Debrid(RD) links is not a problem. In many cases, I get hundreds of RD links. My problem is that none of these links work. Sometimes they look like they are going to work, but stop.
    I have reconfigured and reauthorize both URLResolver and ResolverURL countless times and this problem continues.
    I would greatly appreciate any help you can provide. Thank you

  2. One solution is to sign in to real-debrid site click on ‘my account’ then scroll down to ‘download history’ click on ‘see’. This brings up all your failed download attempts. Find a link you want click on ‘download’ and it will download to your windows download folder, usually without error. and within 20 minutes or so for 2Gb, enjoy!!

  3. Unfortunately, Real-Debrid is a poor service & shouldn’t be relied upon, I got banned from the support forum for asking a valid question and support just ignore you most of the time, they don’t offer ANY support for KODI either so forget about asking as you will be served with a cut & paste from the ‘T&Cs’.

    This is what its like for everyone using KODI & Real Debrid:

    1) RD NOT WORKING ON ALL ADD-ONS:- you will get some add-ons work with it and some do not, the cause is the version of Kodi vs the version of the Addon and/or the state of the install, sometimes they just dont work well together and that is why some add-ons dont work on RD even after re-authorizing, clearing providers & cache (with or without VPN), you can switch between Kodi versions and find that more (or less) add-ons might start working.

    2) LINKS NOT WORKING:- a lot (maybe 50%+) of links dont actually work, in my 12 months experience of using RD across many add-ons and builds, I have found that even when RD works that more than half the links do not.

    3) LINKS GO TO PLAY BUT STOP:- again this is to do with the Kodi version vs add-on, I’ve noticed this stop when shifting between Kodi versions, strange thing is if you enable downloads and long press (right-click) on the movie link & choose download you will find it will actually download when this happens, but won’t stream through kodi…try it!

    4) 1080p LINKS ARE ACTUALLY 720P OR SD:- yes you may have noticed (if not, check..) when playing the movie from a 1080p RD link that it is actually 720p or even a poor quality SD, this happens on a lot of the RD 1080p links, you can find working 1080p links but you have to fish around, why it’s like this I don’t know (and no its not because it is skipping the 1080p movies down to 720p or SD, I know when that happens as I watch which link it starts playing from and test it again) …obviously RD can’t answer either as they don’t provide content, it is most likely the providers trying to make their service look more lucrative than it actually is (tag more movies as 1080p than we actually have).

    The positive thing is that it is extremely cheap at £3 for 30days access, you can still get HQ content, just you may find that you have to jump between add-ons and links to find it if you are not happy with it then dont purchase it again and turn it off in your add-ons.

    ALTERNATIVE?:- if you don’t like Real-Debrid there is a FREE service called ALLUC that provides similar functionality for free, sign up, grab the API code and set it up in add-ons, be sure to reduce search results to 20 per search (for alluc only) as you are only allowed 200 search results per day, it is excellent and more reliable than Real-Debrid

    You can also use Real-Debrid + Alluc together on one or two add-ons which works very well.

  4. I get 25 real debrid links and none of them work. It will go through each one separately as it whines down to just the non dedrid links.

    I get exactly the same thing

  5. I get 25 real debrid links and none of them work. It will go through each one separately as it whines down to just the non dedrid links.

  6. followed all instructions but still no debrid links on my nvidia shield. the fix did work for my android tablet. any solutions for nvidia?

  7. My remote isn’t working anymore. I entered a code to link my device to debrid. And now I can’t do anything with my firestick. What did I do???

  8. Real Debrid is NOT working on Firestick (first edition) for weeks. I have tried every fix including complete re-install of Kodi. It was a great service but now the only good source is Phoenix> Incredible TV> let it populated then voila’! You pick link 1 or link 2 and 99% of the time perfect play. I have been loyal to Genesis, Exodus, (Lambda) and Stream All The Sources (tknorris) BUT we paid for Real-Debrid to make those sources perform well and we end up with no correct fixes and even the help desk with a service #ticket- silence from Real Debrid. (serious run on sentence- sorry)

  9. Kodi 17.3 I have tried re-authorizing & clearing providers and cache multiple times but When I pick a real debrid stream it goes through all the 40 streams and then I get the exodus no source message – it takes forever. Real Debrid does works under Stream Army and other 4K video addons

  10. Read somewhere that Real Debrid configuration has been removed from Exodus. Can someone confirm that this is true? I really hope not.

  11. Same issue…
    LLĹKPOOoads of Real-Debrid links many HDs and some normal ones but none of them seem to work.
    Have refreshed RD but still nothing. ..
    Last hope trying to Clear the Caches
    ¡ Yeah that was the problem !

  12. Tried your recommendations and nothing happened still get no stream available what else could be done ?

  13. When I pick a real debrid stream it goes through all the streams before starting and takes forever. Any help would be great

  14. Just applied the recommended fix above on NVidia shield and worked first time Thank you so much. 🙂

  15. Steps do not work for nvidea sheild on latest kodi or spmc 16.0. The newest version. Of spmc not out yet on playstore. Real debrid works fine on android box the issue is with nvidea

  16. I’ve followed your instructions and Exodus still by passes real-debrid. I’ve even updated to kodi krypton 17.1
