The dedicated Real Debrid addon for Kodi gives premium subscribers to the Debrid service a new way to stream high quality links quickly within Kodi. 

The addon lets you input Debrid media links, torrent files, and magnet links into it, which uses the Debrid servers to stream the media file through Kodi.

For premium users, this addon is the perfect way to stream HD content in the format and quality that you want.

We’ll explain everything in this guide, including:

If you aren’t familiar, Real Debrid is a premium service that gives you access to a ton of fast servers with a single account. Debrid links are less prone to buffer and have more bandwidth, which means that higher quality and bigger media files are more commonly stored on them.

Debrid is highly recommended for all Kodi users. Click here to learn more about Real-Debrid. Click here to sign up for Real-Debrid directly.

So why would you use this manual Real Debrid addon verses letting it automatically pull links for you in a multi-source scraping addon like Seren or Gaia?

Manual Real Debrid Addon Advantages

  • More control over the quality of your streams. You can find a stream on the internet on any “scene release” website, enter it into the addon, and know exactly that your stream will be 1080p, 7.1 surround sound, or whatever else based on the scene title.
  • Real Debrid offers the playing of torrent and magnet files. Simply download a torrent or magnet file, select it in the addon, and Real Debrid will encrypt and play the file in Kodi.
  • View the status of all Real Debrid file hosts quickly and see which ones are currently offline.
  • The addon tracks your history, so you can easily playback Debrid files you played in the past.

How to Use Real Debrid Kodi Addon

Using the addon is simple, but it requires you to find your own links to stream, which can turn some people off.

Don’t worry though, we have a few sample sites below and a quick google search will find you a lot more.

For regular links hosted by a file host, you want to look for a “scene release website”. Scene releases are media files that adhere to a higher standard as far as audio and video quality. Sites like,, and post about all the latest scene releases.

Included within each posting on these sites are file host links to some of the sites Real Debrid is compatible with like Rapidgator, Openload, Nitroflare, and more.

Simply copy the URL to these files and paste them into the Unrestrict Link option to decode and stream.

If you are working on the Android TV, you may want to run your file host link through a link shortener service such as to get a smaller link to input.

Torrent and magnet links work similar! Torrent websites such as and store torrent files. If you copy the location of one and paste it into the Add Torrent/Magnet File option in the Real Debrid addon for Kodi, it will pass through the Real Debrid servers and play!
