This in-depth report of the Mirror Kodi Addon will provide you with everything you need to know about this add-on on Firestick, Fire TV, Android TV Box, or any other device.
Is Mirror Kodi safe to use? Is Mirror Kodi Addon legal? How do I install Mirror Kodi Addon? We will answer those questions and more in this article.
The reason why we ask legal questions is due to the fact that Mirror isn’t available in Kodi’s official repository. This is oftentimes a warning sign.
Since this add-on can’t be installed through the official Kodi repository, it must be installed from an external provider which we display in the screenshot guide below.
Mirror is a video addon that uses auto-play for fast, high quality streaming.
It is currently working fabulously with tons of links and an easy to use interface. For these reasons and more, it is considered a Best Kodi Add-On by TROYPOINT.
For best results, TROYPOINT recommends integrating a real-debrid account within Mirror. This will provide you with tons of high quality links including torrenting options for buffer-free streaming.
We will provide you with instructions on how to integrate Real-Debrid within this add-on after the installation tutorial.
NOTE: After testing we found that Mirror does include some torrent links when real-debrid is integrated. If you decide to use this option, a VPN is needed to ensure your privacy.
