Seren Kodi Addon Install: The #1 Ultimate Guide

The Seren Kodi addon is a multi-source offering from the developer of the Incursion addon. We have a full featured Seren addon guide including install instructions, setup guide, troubleshooting, and tips.

Seren has been coded from the ground up and is the most ambitious new addon that has been released in a while!

Nixgates, the developer of Incursion, started on the project after being unhappy with constantly having to edit old code within Incursion (which was a fork of Covenant).

Check out the full list of features and notes about the Seren addon below.

 

Seren Latest Version

May 20th: Nixgates has announced that he is almost finished development on Seren version 2.0. One of the big enhancements that has been made is that loading times of menus are all magnitudes faster. As one example, an ‘Up Next’ playlist of 400 items which previously took 5 seconds to load now takes 400 milliseconds! As well, Seren v2.0 will be fully compatible with python 3 and Kodi 19.

 In the meantime, Seren has been updated to v1.6.18. The recent updates have included a number of bug fixes and feature changes:

  • Updated AllDebrid to the new API
  • Fixed AllDebrid magnet files
  • Adjusted Trakt status codes
  • Removed old settings
  • Fixed provider not showing due to theme changes

If in the event your Seren install becomes corrupt, I would suggest making use of the “Wipe Addon Data” feature in the tools menu and re-setup your settings.

 

Seren Kodi Addon Features

Seren is built to work on Kodi 17 Krypton and 18 Leia, for maximum compatiblility.

Speed 

Seren is FAST with its menus and scraping. Scraped information is cached to make the addon quicker.

Almost every line of code has been written from scratch

Netflix-like Behavior

The Seren Kodi addon automatically creates playlists of shows that you select by default. It has the ability to resume where you left off with a single click on a show.

As well, Seren prompts you asking if you would like to continue to the next episode.

Seren’s default behavior is to scrape and find the best media source to play. It has pre-emptive scraping and autoplay enabled by default. This means that you will only ever see the scraping windows on the first episode of a show.

Custom provider installer

Seren is built to accept individual provider packs. Users can built a master scraper list and enable and disable at their choice.

Other Features

Seren has automatic caching for Real-Debrid and Premiumize users.

Premiumize users – Seren will automatically download and remove items from your cloud so that they can be played quickly and on demand.

Shuffle Play – Pick one episode, hit shuffle play, and the Seren Kodi addon will randomly play episodes until you are done.

Cached torrents

Trakt integration. The list of Seren Kodi addon features goes on and on.

Either Real-Debrid or Premiumize are highly suggested for this addon.

Exhausted yet?

Let’s have a look at how to install the Seren Kodi addon! Underneath that, we have a full setup and integration guide to check out and read.

 

Premium Accounts with Seren Kodi Addon

Right now, this addon does not work without either Premiumize or Real Debrid. Seren was built from the ground up to use features offered by these services. These premium servers can also handle the load of Kodi users, unlike free file hosts which get abused frequently.

Also, smart play settings such as Up Next, Auto Playlist Creation, Auto Episode Resume, and Pre-Emptive Scraping do not work without an authorized Trakt account. Trakt is a free service.

  1. Great Update!! Verf fast….. only i mis the country selection for Subtitels.
    But after all good job!!

  2. I’m trying to use this addon almost every day, and all I can get is the ‘No playable sources for this item’ error. I get this for every movie I tried to stream. I have Trakt account, Real Debrid and Premiumize… Every other addon that I use works perfectly with Trakt,Debrid and premiumize…

  3. Hi there! Sooo…I have followed the entire tutorial (except for 2 things given below) and have gotten Seren added to my Kodi unit, but there are still a few bugs with v0.1.35. I can’t get anything to play. I receive an error that “playback has failed”, but I’m guessing it has something to do with #1 below. Also, the help links given above either no longer work or Seren has been orphaned.

    #1) When I was following the tutorial, when I got to the part where I needed to authorize Trakt, I was able to do so, but my account info would not save within Seren’s settings. Now, everytime I try to authorize Trakt, I receive an error message that Trakt is unavailable. I know that this is not the case because Trakt is available, so there must be a code missing somewhere. Seren did, however, save my Real-Debrid information when I authorized it.

    #2) The ‘HELP’ links given in this article don’t work…at least not for me. The Twitter link takes you to @KodiTips and the Facebook link takes you to a “Page Not Found” notice. I tried to join the KodiTips forum page, but since the Captcha link is not working, you can’t complete the Registration. UGH!

    #3) I also could not get the Lambda integration to work like others have also reported. And, yes, I’ve shut Kodi down and restarted it.

    Any help with this would be greatly appreciated! I do see where this is still in Beta mode, so I know there will be issues, but maybe I need to uninstall for now until the authors can get it up and running correctly??? I’ll keep an eye on this add-on to see whether or not it has been orphaned or is still just in its ‘newness’ stage and will eventually work out all the bugs.

    I definitely like the look of it though!

    Thanks! Dee

  4. Just tried a fresh install of seren had installed since December it was working fine until update. Now when I try to install the providers I get a seren error. Please advise this was my go to addon.

  5. I’ve tried installing and using this add-on with not luck though. I’ve tried it when it 1st came out and just now. I’m no stranger to Kodi and have followed the exact instructions. I think this add-on only benefits people with paid accounts like Real Debrid & Premiumize.

  6. I also found that it helps if you complete the instructions as above then exit kodi properly (proper shutdown process) first, then restart Kodi and go into Seren it will work without issue.

  7. Fantastic App. If you follow the instructions above EXACTLY. It works PERFECTLY.

    I’ve been using this past week and it has been impressive. No other apps that I have, or haved used in the past, come anywhere close to this app.

  8. Working well. You have been all over this! I didn’t find how Lambda integration works. The version I got today is 0.1.13 not 0.1.3. Big thanks to you for spreading the word and especially nixgates for the awesome development work!

  9. Works well with real debrid, from what I read it’s a premium addon and requires a debrid account.

    Works great for me.

  10. Have koditips actually tried this, nothing works guys so I would suggest deleting the post until it’s out of beta

  11. Realise it’s only in beta stage but to release something so flawed makes no sense. The only links I get are for torrent files and even these don’t work. Uninstalled, but given the reputation of Nixgates, I will try again once out of beta

  12. Like above unable to find any links to play even with Real Debrid enabled. OK yes it’s only in BETA but still expect to find 1 link to play. Let it go for a while and come back to try again
