What is Real Debrid on Kodi & FireStick and why do you need it?
Real Debrid is a premium link generator.
If you use FireStick apps or Kodi addons, you must have noticed that most of them generate multiple free streaming links.
You click one of the links to watch the movie or episode.
However, the free links are often not reliable are usually of low-quality.
Real Debrid gives you access to several high-resolution and better-performing streaming links.
It makes your streaming experience a lot more enjoyable.
Benefits of Real Debrid:
- Higher quality/higher resolution links
- Links from fast servers. Reduce buffering considerably
- Reliable links that offer considerably better performance than the free links
- Offers torrent streaming
- Works with several FireStick APKs and Kodi addons
How to sign up for Real Debrid (Pricing & Signup steps)
First, we take a look at the Real Debrid price plans; next, we go through the signup process.
Real Debrid Pricing
Here are the Real Debrid plans you can choose from:
- $3.38 (15 Days) | Fidelity Points – 150
- $4.50 (30 Days) | Fidelity Points – 200
- $10.13 (90 Days) | Fidelity Points – 450
- $18.02 (180 Days) | Fidelity Points – 800
Why you buy a subscription or every time you renew the subscription, the Fidelity Points are added to your account depending upon the plan.
Once you accumulate 1000 Fidelity Points, Real Debrid rewards you 30 bonus days.
For instance, if you sign up with the 30-Day plan (200 Fidelity Points) and later renew the subscription with the 180-Day plan (800 Fidelity Points), you earn 1000 points.
Meaning, you get 210 days (180 + 30).
How to Sign Up for Real Debrid for Kodi & FireStick
Before you begin with the sign-up process, please note that Real Debrid can record your IP address [show_ip], log your streaming related data, and disclose the personal data to the judicial authorities when requested for legal investigations.
To avoid any legal troubles, I strongly recommend you use a VPN that works great both with FireStick, Kodi, and all your devices.
ExpressVPN is the most secure, fastest, and most streaming-friendly VPN. It will encrypt and mask all your streaming activities via Real Debrid.
Real Debrid sign-up process is easy and takes just a few minutes. These are the steps you need to follow:
2. Choose the Real Debrid plan you want to start with
3. You will be required to provide your email address and create a username and password during the sign-up process.
You will also need to validate your account by clicking the link in the email sent by Real Debrid after signing up.
Set up Real Debrid on Kodi
Make sure you install the addon with which you want to use Real Debrid before following the setup steps below.
Method 1: Set Up Real Debrid on Kodi from Within the Addon
Most Kodi addons have a built-in option to set up and authorize Real Debrid from within.
You just need to find the right option within the addon settings.
Note: If the addon does not have a built-in Real Debrid option, go to the next section for set up steps.
Follow these steps:
1. From the home screen of Kodi, go to Add-ons > Video add-ons to access all your installed addons
Now, click and open the desired addon (I am opening The Crew Kodi addon)
2. Next, find the option such as Tools or Settings and click it
3. Click ResolveURL: Settings
4. When the following popup appears, click Universal Resolvers on the left
5. Now, on the right, scroll down to the Real-Debrid section
Set the Priority value at 90
Next, click (Re)Authorize My Account
6. A popup should appear with the Real Debrid authorization code
Note down the code
The code typically expires in 120 seconds (2 minutes)
7. Go to real-debrid.com/device on a PC or smartphone
Sign in with your Real Debrid account if you haven’t already
Enter the authorization code from Kodi (previous step)
8. Once Real Debrid has been authorized successfully, you should see the confirmation saying, “Application allowed, you can close this page”
9. Back on Kodi, you should see the confirmation in the top-right corner saying, “Real-Debrid Resolver Authorized.”
This is how you set up Real Debrid on a Kodi addon.
However, the steps may vary across addons. For instance, take a look at the set-up steps for the Diamond Shadow addon:
1. On the main screen of the Diamond Shadow Kodi addon, click Settings
2. Now, click Debrid/General in the left menu
On the right, make sure the option Enable Debrid Service is enabled
Click Re-auth Real-Debrid
3. A popup is displayed with the Real Debrid authorization code
Note this code down
Again, go to real-debrid.com/device and enter this authorization code like before
Method 2: Set Up Real Debrid on Kodi Globally
If you can’t find the Real Debrid authorization option within the addon settings, you can set it up globally.
Note: If you have already set up Real Debrid with the desired addon, you may not need to follow these steps
You will need to set up Real Debrid on Kodi with one of (or both) the following dependencies:
- Resolve URL
Here are the steps:
1. Choose the gear icon in the top-left corner of your Kodi home screen for Settings
2. Open System
3. Select Advanced (bottom-left section)
4. Click Add-ons > Manage Dependencies (it will not appear until you choose ‘Advanced’ in the previous step)
5. Scroll down and click ResolveURL
💡If you don’t see ResolveURL, skip to step-14
6. Choose Configure
7. Highlight the tab Universal Resolvers in the menu
8. In the middle section, go down and select the section Real Debrid
First, set the priority value to 90
9. Next, hit (Re)Authorize My Account
10. You will now see this prompt with the Real Debrid authorization code
11. Visit real-debrid.com/device
Type the code that you see on the prompt above
💡You may need to sign in with the Real Debrid login/account you created if you aren’t already
12. Upon successful authorization, Kodi will display the following confirmation in the upper-right corner
13. Repeat the steps 1 to 4 (where you clicked Manage Dependencies)
14. Click URLResolver
💡If you don’t see URLResolver and you have already followed the steps 1 to 12 successfully, no need to proceed further
15. Follow steps 6 to 12
