The YIFY Movies Kodi addon takes advantage of the new Premiumize/Real Debrid torrent features in ResolveURL to give you a perfect HD media addon!
Our full guide below explains why this addon is unique and how to install it today.
What are Torrent Files?
Torrent files are peer-to-peer files where all owners of the file (called seeders) each host the file and allow other users to stream from them.
Recently, ResolveURL added Premiumize and Real Debrid torrent support to take advantage of a feature where those premium hosts handle the seeding and torrent part and leave you, the user, with just a stream.
This is awesome because you don’t have to expose your connection like a traditional torrent file. As well, torrent files are better quality and more reliable than traditional file hosts.
What is YIFY Movies
YIFY Movies is a long-running media website that contains torrent/magnet links for media.
The YIFY Movies Kodi addon scrapes that website and presents all torrent links in the addon. When you click on a title, it sends the link to ResoleveURL, where Premiumize or Real Debrid handles the playback and places the media on your screen.
NOTE: A Real Debrid or Premiumize account is required in order to use this addon. If you don’t have Premiumize or Real Debrid then the media will not play. If you have an account but still cannot get any link to work, then make sure you have authorized your account inside of ResolveURL.

YIFY Movies Kodi Help – Blank or Empty Directories
The YIFY Movies website is blocked to users who are located in the United Kingdom and other parts of Europe. This is due to censorship from some internet service providers.
So, when you install the YIFY Movies Kodi addon, it will not be able to find and scrape the YIFY website.
There are two ways that you can fix this issue.
The first is to head into the YIFY Movies addon settings by hovering over the addon title in your video addons, pressing menu, and clicking on settings.
Once you are in the YIFY Movies Kodi settings, click the option to Enable Proxy.
This will allow the addon to access an alternative URL to the website that isn’t blocked in the UK.
If this still doesn’t fix your YIFY Movies empty directories error, then you need to connect to a VPN in order to use this addon.
Simply sign up for a VPN and turn it on with your location somewhere other than the United Kingdom. You will see directories and be able to stream using the addon.
