This tutorial will show you How to Install and Setup Stremio on a Firestick, Fire TV, Android TV Box, phone, or tablet.

Stremio is a free media center application that works very similarly to Kodi and Plex.

TROYPOINT IPVanish 57% Off

This app is receiving praise 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, TV shows, live TV, and much more.

For these reasons and more, we have included Stremio within our Best APKs list.

While there are many similarities, this streaming application is different than Kodi in one major area.

Most of the addons available through Stremio rely on BitTorrent protocol which is a file-sharing technology that displays the IP address of its users.

Stremio & BitTorrent Technology

As of now, the best addons available within Stremio are based on BitTorrent technology.

TROYPOINT IPVanish Save $40

This is completely different than streaming from apps such as Cinema HD or the most popular Kodi Addons.

When streaming a media file through BitTorrent, we are also sharing the same file with others which means our IP Address is being publicly broadcast.

BitTorrent IP Addresses

IP Addresses are easily identified for those who are sharing through BitTorrent protocol.

If a person streams media that is copyright protected through BitTorrent without a VPN, trouble usually follows.

You may receive a threatening letter from your ISP or from a watchdog group that the Motion Picture Association hires to monitor the popular BitTorrent trackers.

Even though I’m streaming public domain movies and TV shows, I still protect myself with a VPN as I don’t want my IP address floating around these trackers.

When streaming media files through BitTorrent your IP Address is made public.  If you access copyrighted media through this technology without using a VPN this could lead to ISP termination or legal problems.  You have been warned.

The following steps will show you how to install Stremio APK on the Amazon Fire TV Stick Lite.

These same steps also work for those using the Firestick 4K, 3rd Gen Fire TV Stick, Fire TVs, Fire TV Cube, and any Fire TV device.

This process also applies to those using Android devices such as the NVIDIA SHIELD, MECOOL Boxes, Chromecast, Android TV Boxes, phones, tablets, and any Streaming Device.

Stremio Setup

With the Stremio app installed we must now set up the app for use. The guide below will show two ways to use the Stremio app.

In the first method, we will install a torrent add-on for streaming Movies and TV Shows.

The second method will show the same torrent add-on but this time we will integrate Real-Debrid into the addon for and an extra layer of security.

However, before using the app we must first connect to a VPN to ensure safe streaming.

Even though I am streaming a free public domain movie in this example, I still don’t want my IP address floating around the BitTorrent trackers and my VPN takes care of this problem.

Installing IPVanish VPN is Simple

If you are using an Amazon Firestick or any Fire TV device, you can follow our VPN on Firestick/Fire TV tutorial.

  • Install the IPVanish VPN app by searching Amazon or Google Play App Store on your streaming device.

  • Open the app and enter your IPVanish VPN Username and Password.  This will be emailed to you after registering for their service.

IPVanish VPN Login

  • Click the Connect button.

VPN Click Connect

  • You will now see that your IP address has been changed.  You are now anonymous.

Once a connection has been made on your streaming device, click your home button.  The VPN will remain running in the background.

  • We can now see the torrent streams available from the Torrentio addon

torrentio links without real-debrid

You will see a blue icon of a person in each available link.  This indicates how many people are currently sharing the media file and the higher number usually means better playback.

You will also notice which Torrent Website each of the links is served from.

If you are a Real-Debrid user, we can integrate an account within the Torrentio addon which will provide an extra layer of security due to the fact that the Torrents will be downloaded through the Real-Debrid servers.

Follow the guide below to set up Real-Debrid within Torrentio.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Prior to integrating Real-Debrid, you must make sure your VPN is turned OFF to ensure authorization.

After your VPN is disabled, open the home screen of your device and choose settings.

Ensure Your VPN is Active with VPNSafetyDot

Another useful application I recommend installing in conjunction with Stremio, is the VPNSafetyDot app.

VPNSafetyDot is a slick tool that enables an icon to appear in the upper right-hand corner of your screen when you are connected to a VPN.

With this app installed, users will always know when their connection is safe via VPN. You will also have the option to change icon transparency and more.

This is especially important when using applications that use torrent streams like Stremio or Syncler.

Another useful application I recommend installing in conjunction with Stremio, is the VPNSafetyDot app.

Warning! Protect Yourself With A VPN

Most cord-cutters use a VPN and rightfully so.

The free streaming applications, addons, and paid IPTV services that you use are usually hosted on insecure servers.

Without a VPN, your IP Address is being logged.

Your IP Address points back to your location and identity which compromises both your privacy and security.

Your current identifying IP Address is 130.255.162.173 – When you use a VPN, your real IP address will be converted into an anonymous new one.

A VPN will provide you with an anonymous connection to the Internet.

This will prevent your Internet Service Provider, app/addon developers, government agencies, and any 3rd party from logging what you’re accessing online.

The most popular VPN among cord-cutters is IPVanish due to their blazing fast speeds and zero log policy.

Its important to use a VPN that is fast since we are streaming large HD files.  Its also crucial to find one that keeps no logs of what their subscribers access while online.

Setting up IPVanish VPN on your streaming device is simple!
