How to Use Real Debrid on Kodi & APKs for HD Streaming Links

real-debrid on Kodi

This guide shows how to install and set up Real-Debrid on Kodi along with various streaming APKs on a Firestick or Android TV/Google TV device.

Using this service on an Android-based streaming system is the most popular method but there are numerous ways that it can be utilized.  Many people also use it on their phones and tablets as well.

When you use Real-Debrid with Kodi or other streaming apps, you get buffer-free HD playback that you wouldn’t normally find with the default streams.

It’s important to point out that Real-Debrid is not an add-on or application.  It’s a service that you can tie into various Kodi add-ons and streaming apps.

You will find step-by-step instructions below on how to pair this service with your favorite add-on or APKs.

Integrating this service within your preferred add-on is the best way to eliminate buffering on your Firestick or Android TV device.

In a recent poll taken on the TROYPOINT Insider, 90% of respondents use this in conjunction with their favorite streaming apps and add-ons.

Real-Debrid Poll

What is Real-Debrid?

If you are an avid cord-cutter you have likely heard the term real-debrid but may be wondering just exactly what it is and how it works. In general terms, real-debrid is a platform that provides streaming links on media outlets such as Kodi Addons or APKs.

You may have used these options in the past to watch VOD content but felt disappointed with the streams provided that may not be in high definition quality or seem to buffer/lag during playback. This is where real-debrid comes in.

Real-Debrid hosts HD streaming links by the masses and because servers aren’t cluttered with traffic, there are never any buffering issues and you can watch your favorite content without interruptions.

The service refers to itself as an “unrestricted downloader” that allows you to download & stream movies & TV shows instantly from file lockers and torrent sites.

You can think of this service as a middle-man between you and the servers that store media files.

The service processes those files on their servers and sends them to you at blazing-fast speeds which means no buffering.  Plus you will enjoy 4K and 1080P streams to boot.

Real Debrid Link Options

Most cord-cutters use this platform with their Amazon Firestick or Android TV/Google TV Box in conjunction with free Kodi add-ons or streaming apps. We provide instructions for adding this service to both in the guide below.

Without Real-Debrid, using Kodi addons and free streaming apps is basically useless these days.  Many of the servers that provide free links have been shut down or are too congested.

Premium Real-Debrid Features

  • High-speed downloads, up to 1,000 Mbps
  • HTML 5 Streaming (no plugin needed)
  • No waiting times for streams to start playing or ads
  • Firefox, Chrome, and Jdownloader Plugins
  • DLC, RSDF, and CCF decrypter
  • Parallel downloads possible
  • Unlimited traffic
  • Support for download accelerators
  • Multiple hosters on a single website
  • AES Secure Downloads are possible


In order to use Real-Debrid with various streaming outlets, you must sign up for a premium account.


Your online activity is recorded by your government, Internet Service Provider, app/addon/IPTV devs and all websites through your identifying IP address

Stream anonymously by using Surfshark VPN

Yes, it’s a paid service, however, it costs less than $5/month and will likely be the best investment you make after cutting the cord.

real debrid payment methods

  • Credit Cards
  • Amazon Pay
  • Cryptocurrency (including Bitcoin)
  • Prepaid Tickets

Some have complained that their credit cards aren’t accepted when trying to pay for subscriptions.  This is due to some of them being blocked due to the fact that this company is based outside the United States of America.  The solution is to use Amazon Pay or Cryptocurrency instead.

Privacy Concerns

Before we dive into any instructions, it’s important to point out two concerning statements in Real-Debrid’s privacy policy.

Exceptional Disclosure of Personal Data

We may be required to disclose Users personal data in order to protect our legal rights or where disclosure of Users personal data’s are required of us by the judicial authorities only when legal procedures are followed.

Data Logging


Files links that Users download are stored in a database for legal concerns and our internal use. All saved links are erased within 1 month for security reasons and service needs. However all requests made on our site are stored for 1 year, the legal retention period.

It’s important to note that if you don’t register for Real-Debrid with a compatible VPN such as Surfshark, your identifying IP Address is logged in your account.  Everything that you access through RD’s servers will have your digital fingerprint attached to it.

Furthermore, if you don’t connect to a VPN on your streaming device prior to using the service, your IP Address will be logged at that time as well.  See my Kodi setup video below where I show how to prevent IP address logging with a working kill switch.

How to Delete Real-Debrid Account

If you were unaware of the privacy concerns mentioned earlier in this article, you may want to delete your account and start over from scratch.

Unfortunately, Real-Debrid does not allow for deleting a premium account.  They simply tell you to let your account expire and then contact them at that time for account removal.

This is pulled directly from the help section on their website.

First of all, please note that we can’t delete an account with a premium state.

To check that, you need to be connected to your account

You can find the end date of your subscription in the website header and on your account page here :
“Account informations” part > Valid until

The payments on Real-Debrid are not recurring, just let your subscription run out and contact us after that.

If you’re going to start over with a new account we suggest that you first delete your download history currently present on the Real-Debrid servers.  We cover this process in the section above.

But please understand that your download history is retained for one year whether you delete it or not.

Compatible VPNs

You may not be aware that Real-Debrid only works with certain VPN providers.

Some of the most popular cooperative VPN services include Surfshark, ExpressVPN, IPVanish, NordVPN, StrongVPN, and others seen in the list located on their website.  It’s important to use a VPN that has a working kill switch present on the device you are using.  It only takes one connection to the Real-Debrid servers for them to log your identifying IP Address.

Real-Debrid vs AllDebrid vs Premiumize

real-debrid vs all-debrid

For those looking to find a replacement, there are a few alternative options.

The most popular include AllDebrid and Premiumize which are both premium resolvers with integration capabilities.

These tools work in the exact same fashion and provide the same high-quality streams however, there are a few key differences.

The first to consider is price as this is usually the main focus for anyone looking to find one of these services.

Listed below are the current prices for all 3 services.

  • Real-Debrid – 4 EUR (Roughly $4.21 US) for 30 Days
  • AllDebrid – 4 EUR (Roughly $4.50 US) for 1 Month
  • Premiumize – 10 EUR (Roughly $11 US) for 1 Month (cheaper when purchasing longer plan)

As you can see, Real-Debrid and AllDebrid are comparable in price with Premiumize nearly double the cost of both.

When comparing services, there are some differences including VPN compatibility and app/addon compatibility.

In terms of popularity, Real-Debrid is much more well-known which means it is likely available on more platforms including Kodi and Streaming Apps.

This platform also has various VPN compatibility which is not always the case for AllDebrid which may not work with various VPN services.

For these reasons and more, we suggest Real-Debrid as the best unrestricted downloader service to use on your media device.

Use our resource guides below for more information on these other various services.

Notable Replies

  1. I find this new information about RD privacy to be very disturbing. One of the main reasons I love RD was that I didn’t have to hassle with a VPN, if living in the US, (which ALWAYS slows down my speed no matter what I tried). As long as I didn’t download a stream.

  2. Avatar for Wedway Wedway says:

    This new information on real-debrid worries me. I just had to renew my account and did it without my vpn on. I don’t want to lose the months I just paid for but feel unsecure. Any ideas?


  3. Avatar for AMD237 AMD237 says:

    I don’t think one renewal is a huge deal. I think Troy is just trying to help bring awareness that using RD should be done as anonymously as any other cord cutting that we do. It has been an ongoing argument here since I started that RD is 100% secure, no VPN needed. That just isnt true. But to each his/her own, we cant force anyone to worry about their security and anonymity. Hope this article opens some eyes, but we will still unfortunately have the naysayers.

  4. 100% agree with what you say @AMD237 We hear it over and over again…you don’t need a VPN to use Real-Debrid. People who say this probably haven’t read their privacy policy.

  5. Avatar for Wedway Wedway says:

    I use IPVanish while using real-debrid as I didn’t trust it, but when I renewed my subscription I did it on my phone and didn’t use my VPN while I did it.

  6. So why is Real Debrid the main one spoken about everywhere? I used to use Premiumize and Real Debrid together and for the past year haven’t renewed my Real Debrid as Premiumize had a 2-year promotion that I took advantage of so I am good until June 2025. Is Real Debrid better than Premiumize?

  7. I saw the recently posted article about the privacy concerns with real Real-Debrid. However, this information is not new. It has been there for a very very long time. Why is it suddenly an issue now? Nobody reads fine print anymore I guess.

    I don’t agree with paying by Bitcoin directly from your coinbase account. That is straight up risky! If there is a genuine legal issue at hand, they can easily trace your Bitcoin transaction directly to your coinbase account with a court issued warrant. The publicly available blockchain information will lead law enforcement directly to your Coinbase account no matter what VPN you are using. This is a proven fact and an effective law enforcement procedure.

    I would recommend transferring all of your cryptocurrency to a crypto wallet. And then washing it through a Bitcoin tumbler if you are using Bitcoin and pay with the tumbled Bitcoin. Otherwise, exchange your cryptocurrency for Monero coins. Monero coin is proven truly anonymous. Then transfer your Monero coin to a Litecoin (LTC) address not associated or connected to your Coinbase account or your real identity. Real-Debrid accepts Litecoin cryptocurrency. Litecoin transactions are cheaper and faster than Bitcoin.

    In conclusion, your transaction will be truly anonymous and protected.

    The Paranoia in this forum is strong. I’ve been using Real Debrid for at least 5 years WITHOUT a VPN. Everyone needs to take a chill pill. The Boogeyman is not coming for you. And I’m paying with a personal credit card. Geezus

  9. Hello, no it is not better than Premiumize but it is cheaper and main reason why people use it compared to that. We did a comparison and both brought in the same # of links.

  10. My main reason for doing this is to keep my personal info out of the hands of the Real-Debrid operators. Same with purchasing IPTV services, Syncler subscription, etc.

  11. There’s one HUGE problem will Real-Debrid. You are downloading movies or tv shows to their servers. Most of these are being downloaded from illegal torrent sites. There’s a big difference between streaming and downloading when it comes to copyright laws in the USA. What happens when rd gets shut down and they have a year of logs for all of their users along with ip addresses connected to every download? Regarding bitcoin payments it’s not as simple as going to coinbase and asking for data. They would still need to trace the bitcoin payment back to that and I highly doubt they would spend the amount of time required to do that. They would pluck the lowest hanging fruit first. This is why I don’t use real debrid. I use Premiumize and yes they are more expensive but if you pay for a year not as bad. Plus their privacy policy is much better.

  12. Avatar for Miki Miki says:

    One minor difference. I am not downloading to MY device, nor am I distributing a complete copyrighted product from any device I own. This is where the torrent grey area begins. They don’t yet care about individual users like us. Plex shares of copyrighted material, are far worse, and their focus is on those “profiting” from their downloads, like the apps we use, and that isn’t me. It’s also why Troy and others like myself stipulate the use of a VPN at all times. I had my own Torrent site in the late 90’s when it was the wild wild west of sharing. 25 years later the only thing that has changed is the tech.

  13. I try to pay using crypto with Coinbase but I’m charged a fee that’s double the price of subscription. Is this normal Andor how do I avoid this fee

  14. Avatar for AMD237 AMD237 says:

    It must be recent. I am going to find an alternative to Coinbase because of it. The fees are ridiculous now.

  15. This has nothing to do with Coinbase fees. It’s the Bitcoin network fee and high right now due to all the trading on the network. It will slow down once this Bitcoin bull run is over and be a couple bucks.

  16. Avatar for AMD237 AMD237 says:

    Thanks for clarifying Troy! Someone in here said the CashApp still had low Bitcoin fees, so I assumed it was just Coinbase. Makes me feel better to hear you say it should be just temporary. It is my preferred way to pay now.

    I also didn’t realize the fees go up and down with the market, I thought they were set per the provider. Always learning here at Troypoint! :face_with_monocle:

  17. Apologies if asked. I looked around and couldnt seem to find topic about my question. If i link my real debrid with kodi, do i also have to link real debrid with every add on i add to kodi, or does linking it with kodi automatically link it to add ons within kodi? Hope this makes sense.

  18. I linked to every add on.

  19. Avatar for MarkxG MarkxG says:

    Depends if you use a Build or Addons. With the Build I have been using for several years I only need to Authorize RD one time.

  20. Hey Troy there’s just one problem, if you disable or turn off the vpn that same rd account will show your original isp info. So say I make a whole new account with vpn on. It shows ss as my isp, but Then I turn it off afterwards (bc the device I use I need to access stuff and site blocking happens) rd will change it back to the isp. If I turn ss on again it will see ss. So creating a whole new account for privacy is unnecessary, unless you never plan on turning off the vpn. Just thought you should know.

  21. Yes, I understand that but I never turn off VPN on my streaming device so it’s not a problem. If I do turn it off, as long as I don’t use Real-Debrid it’s not going to detect the IP Address change.

  22. Avatar for Miki Miki says:

    I make it a habit to go into my RD account every couple of weeks and delete all the downloads and records. There’s a red X at the top right of the lists that you click to clear the pages. First time I found this there must have been 10 pages each.

  23. Thanks for pointing this out. I need to make this a habit, too.

  24. I’m only posting this as I want everyone to know how Real-Debrid deals with deleted links, etc.

    Everyone should be aware that even if you delete files in your account their privacy policy indicates that they hold onto those logs for one year.

    Ya need to be a lawyer to understand this stuff. For instance, the following confuses me. Saved links are erased within 1 month but requests are kept for a year. Now links are not files and requests are not verification of any actual activity. So is this anything we need to be concerned about? And what are the legal ramifications of “requests”? :judge:

  26. Not buying into any Fear Mongoring with Real Debrid. There are enough Nervous Nellies here as it is. Been using real Debrid for over 5 years now and I have zero worries about any issues. But that’s just me

    Ya same here. I’ve been using it for the same amount of time and getting 6 months at a go and renew with my CC. Never a moment of worry. Cached in my fidelity points whenever I can. Next lot is in July.
    Have fun and STREAM ON!!!

  28. I’m actually surprised that Real Debrid hasn’t had any problems with ACE/MPA. It only takes one subpoena and all of those logs will be in their hands. $3 per month is worth it to me to stay protected, 1 cup of coffee costs more than that at Starbucks.

  29. One more thing. If you follow Troy’s Real Debrid setup video you can use one RD account in multiple locations as long as you always use a compatible VPN like Surfshark when using it. I use the same account at both of my homes with Surfshark always running on all of my streaming devices and it works great.

  30. I don’t use a VPN and have used the same RD Account in multiple locations as well

  31. I was same as I had to confirm new location via email that they sent but eventually they banned my account and said I was sharing. There must be a threshold that they have for this.

  32. If you are using multiple locations at the same time from the same account that’s a no no. But when I travel I take a Firestick with me and have had no issues using RD at another location

    Like I’ve indicated before on this website, I have seen notices of infringement of copyright on real debrid feeds

  34. Just went to Real Debrid to renew my subscription and Coinbase is not available for payment with crypto. Coingate is the exchange listed and it is not available to US citizens. I did use Startmail previously and would like to keep Surfshark VPN on to keep my IP address private. I did not see an opportunity to use a wallet either. I will probably use a pre-paid debit card, because I can not give up Real Debrid. Hope someone has another option.

    In the last couple of years I’ve had my info hacked in three big companies.
    Att, Calif gov, Retirement fund. I just use my credit card and a paid identity theft insurance. Because if u don’t give it up some knucklehead at a company will!
    And because these companies were hacked and my information got out the last 3 years I’ve had free theft insurance.

  36. Just use your personal credit card. Been doing this for years. No issues. Nobody’s coming after you. This forum is full of useless paranoia

    I have been using Real-Debrid for several years. I didn’t bother with being anonymous. Since it was time to renew, I decided to setup an anonymous account. I followed your instructions to the letter. Surfshark was active. I was logged into my Coinbase account. I proceeded to create a new RD account. I received the activation email from RD. I signed into my new account and unfortunately I did not see “Surfshark” as my ISP. It was showing Cogent Communications as my ISP (I actually use ATT). Next, I tried to pay for a 180 day service with my Coinbase account. Unfortunately, the only option I had was Coinbase Wallet (and several other wallet options). I currently do not have a Coinbase Wallet. Frustrated at this point, I decided to give up and renew my old RD account. The purpose of this comment is to share my experience. Maybe RD has changed some things since you posted your guide, or maybe I did something wrong along the way. I would love to hear that it wasn’t something I did. Thanks!

  2. I am struggling to link the Crew with my Real-Debrid account. I keeping getting error messages. Can you please send a video


    1. I found the way to add my ‘Real-Debrid’ to my kodi ‘the crew’ build…
      i use ‘Nord VPN’.. when i open/connect Nord vpn, just under connected there is a drop down menu and i clicked ‘p2p’ option, turned green.
      then i opened kodi-crewnique’ and was able to add ‘real-debrid’ account.
      hope this helps … look for ‘p2p’ option in your VPN….\o/…

  3. Longtime KODI user but new RD user. Problem with CREW RD setup at Step 5 above: When I choose Universal Resolvers on the left, Real Debrid does not appear on the right. Only All Debrid or Premiumize appear, so I can’t set up Real Debrid. It’s not an option.

  4. I have a premium RealDebrid account which is great.
    only issue I have is links provided are offered in multiple languages which requires you to guess which one is in English. I have English set up as my preferred language in Real Debrid but I still get many links which are in other languages.
    any suggestions?
    also can’t find a way to contact RealDebrid support for help

  5. My real debrid account codes wont work to connect a device and I have an active subscription. It says invalid or expired

  6. Hi Team. I have a real debrid account and have it on one of my apps.
    I am trying to put it on Kodi / Promice, but the code shown on the screen is not being accepted.
    I am usings my Chrome account on my phone to save time but still no luck.
    Any other ideas.?

  7. I am log into real-Debrid on cinema and when I choose areal-Debrid stream it says error 503 having issue with premium server. Been like this for 2 weeks now. Any help would be appreciated

  8. Hi Team.
    I have activated my Realdebrid account but cant load onto my android device.
    Any advice would be apreciated.

  9. Hello. I have real debrid and a vpn. I notice that I get ads on my Home Screen. I have to wait for the cycle of 2 ads before I can go into any streaming app. Can you tell me how I can avoid those annoying ads? Thanks very much

      1. Hi. Using IPVanish. So how do go about using the feature. Nothing like what you mentioned in settings. Thank you for your time. Appreciate your help

  10. Hi, having just purchased Real-Debrid
    I was wondering what is the best way
    to add streaming apps if ur running
    KODI with a build already with many well known add-ons?

  11. Hi Troy.
    I downloaded Express VPN and Netflix detected it. How can I adjust Netflix so I can use my vpn and also Netflix

  12. Hey Troy…
    Having grief with buffering. Have Real Debrid, the Crew and Mad Titan. Get a FULL message when I first start up. Then the worst part. I can stream movies, tv shows without a problem. But when I play sports, the addons buffer like crazy. Sometimes I get 30 seconds between buffers. Other times it will go 5 minutes without buffering. I have done everything (I think) short of reinstalling Kodi and starting from scratch.
    Any help/ideas would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you folks for all you do to keep us going.

  13. KODI without Real-Debrid was very very bad for my blood pressure. It is AMAZING with Real-Debrid!! Usually, there are HUNDREDS of source files in multiple sizes to choose from. It’s the difference between driving on a freeway, at a near stop, with miles of cars ahead – and a 5 lane freeway with a few cars, speeding along, at whatever speed they choose.
    If you use KODI you need Real-Debrid.

  14. Hi Troy
    Just wondering if you can use the same real debrid account on more than one device (android box and fire stick) or if you got two devices you need two accounts?

      1. Hi Troy , been wondering what all the fuss was about real debrid and your article was very informative, thank you. Does this work on streaming English premier league and champions league games as well as fa cup caraboa cup and pre season friendlies as well or does it only work on streaming movies and tv shows ? Best Regards, Dan

        1. Real-Debrid only works on APK’s and downloading movies. Real-Debrid was nor made for live TV or Sports, you would need a good IPTV provider.

  15. Hello Just purchased a Real-Debrid account for a month & walked myself thru logging in properly After I got & logged into done my credentials are not showing in the top left hand corner of the screen.when logging into FilmPlus or Flixzoid as well. It just says Clear Real-Debrid credentials. I am using Proton VPN. Maybe its not compatable?

  16. It can be tricky to top up credit on real debrid but it is a must have if you are serious about streaming.

    Thank you for the post! :)

    regards missG

    1. Hello jennifer,

      Some kodi addons and others have a time out if you dont put in the code to your real debrid fast enough, my advice would be to sign into your real debrid from a phone and as soon as the code appears put it in. You will get it. :)

  17. Does Real-Debrid download subtitles with video or is this a separate action, ie, subtitles need to be burned in from another application?

    1. Hello Graeme,

      Real debrid is just a hoster, everything it has is uploaded by the end user who attach subtitles or doesnt. Real debrid doesnt do subtitles the uploaded does.

  18. hi i have a problem with downloader. you see i did a factory reset on 1 0f my firesticks . now my 3 firesticks downloader wont work. i have tried everything and still downloader wont work. is there any thing you can suggest..

  19. If I use an Anonymous Email Account how am I going to be able to activate account, I already use IpVanish

    1. Look at the REALIZER ADDON for Kodi.
      It will allow to play RD files in Kodi without downloading them to your computer.

    2. Hello Clay.
      You have to authorize real debrid to each of your addons. If you’re using RD then consider seren and crew, best addons for rd.

    1. Hello DJK
      Credit cards are safe to use, it’s a legitimate site with https encryption, however you can use Amazon pay or a reusable cc.

    We now have a winter home in Florida. I have used the real-debrid account from my Ohio home here for the last 3 mos. Cinema app has suddenly stopped working showing only the unhappy face and stating sorry too many users…… I have just recently extended my account through Aug 2022 before my due date. Do I have to purchase a separate account for this new home or is something else wrong? I am also subscribed to Troy Point

  21. Yes I have been trying to sign up for real debrid but they will not take my prepaid gift card. I don’t have Amazon pay or the others. Any suggestions?

  22. I have tried several times to download real debrid to the firestick when asked to give the code I get an invalid code response. This is a new account.

    1. Make sure no VPN is running when you first register account / connect apps.
      Still have issues? Restart router and firestick

      1. My real debrid acct expired and I tried to renew but it wouldn’t accept my 2 credit cards and 1 debit card and I tried each 3 times the fraud divisions of the called and said to retry but to no avail any one have any answers ?? Is all debrid a good alternative?
