How to Install Real Debrid
Because real debrid is a paid service, it is recommended you create an account before proceeding. In order to complete this process, please use this link. If you have any questions about this service, please refer to their FAQ site found here.
So lets begin; from the Kodi Home Page, select the Cog Icon as indicated above.
Click Systems settings.
While in the System Settings page, do the following steps:
- Make sure the “mode” is set to Expert. If it is not, simply move the cursor over the text and click/hit enter until it reads Expert.
- Move the cursor up to Add-ons.
- Then move the cursor right and then up to Manage Dependencies. Select to continue.
ResolveURL and URL Resolver
I have included both universal resolvers, some prefer one over the other. I’ll leave that up to you to decide, but I happen to have both enabled in my kodi. As a result, both are set up exactly the same way.
But for this article, I have selected ResolveURL as the example.
- Photo A – Once you have selected your resolver of choice, click on Configure to start the process.
- Photo B – In the left column, move the cursor down to Universal Resolvers. Move to the right and scroll down to Real Debrid.
- Click on Priority for the next steps.
Consequently, a Numeric Keyboard will appear. This will be a Two (2) Step process. Starting with Photo A:
- Using the Backspace key, click until the number 100 is removed.
- Photo B: Either use the supplied keypad or if you have a Keyboard installed on your device enter the numbers 9 and 0. When completed, click Done.
- Then click OK when you return to the previous page. This must be done in order to continue.
After selecting OK you will be returned to the Add-on page where you started from. Click on Configure again. Select Universal Resolvers and scroll down to Real Debrid again.
As a result, the Priority is now set to 90. Why 90 ? I’ll explain that at the end of this article. We’re almost done here, great work so far. At this point you’ll need to select (Re)Authorize My Account.
Authorizing Real Debrid
After a moment or two, a pop up will appear with an 8 digit code. Because there is a time limit, I like to open that url address shown above before I click on (Re)Authorize. It can be achieved on a PC/Laptop, Mobile Device or if you have a browser installed on your Device/Box. Where you enter that code is not important, but…………
Because you need to have a Real Debrid account, the name you used for that account will appear as shown in Photo A. Enter the 8 Digit Code that you copied down first (it’s much easier trust me!) Select Continue. Photo B is the confirmation that the code entered is correct. You may now close that browser.
Consequently, when you return to Kodi, you will see that Real Debrid Resolver is now Authorized.
Real Debrid enhances your streaming files with a higher quality Video and Audio. Some say their buffering has stopped completely. While it may seem so, there is no guarantee of 100% buffer free. But because you are paying a service to access their more powerful servers, you should see a significant difference.
Why do I need to set Priority to 90 ? When looking for a universal resolver the stream source looks for the lowest priority number listed. When this was first decided on, 90 was just a random number selected that happened to be lower than 100. It could be 99 or 52, as long as it’s lower than 100.
