Details & Description – How to Authorize Real-Debrid

As noted above, users must incorporate a real-debrid account or other premium resolving account such as AllDebrid/Premiumize.

This is because of the premium addons associated with Retro such as FEN, Seren, & The Crew.

You can easily authorize your account within Settings using the instructions below. Trakt users can also add an account for syncing content across numerous platforms.

1. Scroll down to hover over System and select Trakt & Debrid Auth.

select trakt & real-debrid auth

2. Under Real-Debrid, select Authorize.

click authorize real debrid

3. You are then provided with an authorization code. Visit and enter the code you are given.

enter the provided real debrid authorization code

4. Return to Retro Kodi Build and you will see the authorization successful message.

With real debrid integrated, you will find the highest quality streaming links that play fast and without buffering.

Retro is a VOD build which means it only serves up Video on Demand content such as Movies/TV Shows. If you are looking for live streaming, we suggest finding an IPTV Service from our updated list below.

Is This Kodi Build Safe to Use?

Before I install this, I first want to scan their repository URL with VirusTotal which you can see in the screenshot below.

Retro Kodi Build Virus Scan

VirusTotal didn’t find any malware/suspicious files associated with this build repo URL.

However, it is still important to use a VPN in conjunction with these unverified outlets.

Kodi even alerts us during setup that these 3rd party Add-ons and builds will be given access to personal data stored on our device.

click yes

The best way to protect yourself when using this build is with our #1 Ranked VPN Provider.

A VPN will provide you with an anonymous connection while streaming or downloading while using questionable builds such as this.

Is This Kodi Build Legal?

It’s impossible for TROYPOINT to determine whether these unverified Kodi Builds hold the proper licensing. In conclusion, the end-user is responsible for all content accessed through builds such as this.

TROYPOINT recommends using 100% legal and verified free streaming options instead of this build.  You will find a link to the best free legal movie/TV show apps below.

  1. One quick note in the guide, there is a typo down in the RD and Trakt instructions. The RD & Trakt Auth is under System, not Add-Ons.

    Thanks for the video @TROYPOINT, Im new to Kodi and the videos help me learn my way around…mistakes and all!

  2. Yup most Build Dev’s set up so you only need to authorize RD 1 time in system vs each individual Addon
