This tutorial will show you how to install and setup Stremio which is a free media center application that works very similar to Kodi and Plex. This app is receiving praises from the streaming community and rightfully so because it works very well.
Just like Kodi, we can install 3rd party addons that allow for free streaming of on-demand movies and tv shows.
This streaming application is different than Kodi in one major area. The addons that we install are added to our online account within Streamio. In my opinion, this is both good and bad.
The cool thing about this is that we can setup Stremio and install addons on Windows, Mac or Linux computers and those will be accessible on any device where Stremio is installed. This will also allow us to resume playing a movie or tv show on a different devices from where we left off.
But, this user convenience also provides Stemio with all of our streaming history and information on addons that we have used. This should be concerning to users due to the fact that much of the Stremio technology revolves around Bit Torrent. When using Bit Torrent software, your IP address is publicly broadcast which means outside organizations can see what you are streaming. Many times this will lead to receiving threatening copyright letters from your Internet Service provider or government.
Also, due to this cloud-based architecture, Stremio will now own streaming logs and other important information that pertains to each of their users.
Within Stremio’s Terms of Service, they indicate the following: The personal data of each User might be transferred to third parties (commercial partners of the Provider) including outside the Republic of Bulgaria including for the purposes of direct marketing and/or profiling upon compliance with the applicable procedures with this regard.
It then also goes onto explain that users can withdraw consent for this by sending a letter to Stremio’s legal team but I’m not sure how well that would work.
So, within this tutorial, not only am I going to show you how to install and setup Stremio, but I am going to give you instructions on how to do this so you will remain anonymous.
The easiest way to approach this project is by first setting up Stremio on your computer (Windows, Mac, Linux supported). The addons that you install will then be available on any device that you use Stremio on since your entire configuration will reside in Stremio’s cloud.
I suggest watching the detailed video below because I cover important steps that can’t be communicated in written steps.
