How to Set Up Real-Debrid on Kodi

Real-Debrid is a multi-hoster that gives you unrestricted access to high-quality streaming sources that are not available to other users.

If you want to access all of the quality content available on Kodi, you have to set up Kodi and configure some of the best Kodi add-ons. There are numerous aggregator add-ons supported on the Kodi platform that let you access multiple streaming links for different videos. While most of these Kodi add-ons are free, they have limited bandwidth capabilities—they limit both the quality of files that can be uploaded and your download speed.

For Kodi users who want to stream HD movies smoothly, the most popular Kodi solution is Real-Debrid. With Real-Debrid hosts, you can stream 4K videos and enjoy unlimited bandwidth, while other file locker hosts limit your download speeds to 20 mb/s. Every time you choose a video stream from a Real-Debrid file host, your premium account connects to the file locker instead of a free connection. The file locker verifies your account and then opens the stream to your Kodi session without any speed limitations.

Tips on How to Use Real-Debrid on Kodi

Can a Real-Debrid Account Be Used on More Than One Device?

A Real-Debrid account can be used on multiple devices as long as they are on the same IP address. For example, you can set up one Real-Debrid account on up to five devices in your home if they all share the same IP address.

Use a Kodi VPN

Most people think that their streaming activities on Real-Debrid are exclusively private. However, Real-Debrid’s privacy policy clearly states that it collects users’ information, including their IP address, location, and download activities. Furthermore, it states that users’ information may be disclosed under certain legal circumstances. Using a Kodi VPN is the best way to keep your streaming activity anonymous and avoid revealing any personal information to legal authorities. You can get around ISP throttling, government monitoring, and geo-restrictions on many Kodi add-ons by using a Kodi VPN.

Can I Delete My Real-Debrid Download History?

Yes, if you wish to stay anonymous online, you can periodically delete your Real-Debrid download history.

Follow these steps to delete your download history:

  1. Go to your Real-Debrid account dashboard.
  2. Scroll down and select the Downloads History option.
  3. Hover over the red “X” in the top right corner of the menu. You will see “Delete All”. Click on it.

There you go, your Real-Debrid download history has now been deleted. However, you can also choose to delete your entire device's history.

Transfer Files and Folders of Any Size Online

If you're looking for a straightforward way to send large movies and other video files over the Internet, you should check out FileWhopper. Cloud storage platforms allow you to store files in the cloud, but you can't rely on them to instantly share large files and folders over the Internet. The FileWhopper platform uses cloud technology and allows you to send data of any size to anyone remotely as long as they have an internet connection. There is no limit on how much data you can send using FileWhopper— for instance, you can transfer a 1GB movie or a 1TB folder. 

FileWhopper is a pay-as-you-go service, so there are no monthly fees and you only pay for what you actually send. Once you select the file or folder you want to send, a one-time charge will be applied; there are no additional charges, and your payment is calculated based on the size of your file or folder. FileWhopper uses military-grade encryption technology to protect your sensitive data during any transfer, and you can set a custom password that you should only reveal to the recipient of your data. FileWhopper does not have access to any file or folder that you transfer via the platform—your data is stored safely for 14 days on its servers and is automatically deleted once it’s downloaded by your recipient(s). As of this writing, your first transfer of up to 5 GB is free, but after that, FileWhopper will charge a small one-time fee that is determined by the size of your data.
