What is the Elementum Kodi Addon?

Elementum is a Kodi addon for streaming movies and TV shows and uses BitTorrent, a peer-to-peer file-sharing protocol. Streaming in this way provides excellent high-quality and buffer-free viewing.

Due to the way in which this addon uses torrents, you may need a VPN to protect your online privacy and activity.

The Elementum addon can be found in the Gaia Repository along with the Gaia addon.

This addon is compatible with Trakt. This is a great tool to synchronise your favourite movies, shows, watchlists and more across multiple devices and applications. With Trakt, you can always keep on top of what you’re watching and, what’s more, never miss an episode!

Is the Elementum Kodi Addon Legal?

Yes, it certainly is! This addon does not host any content and is essentially just a search engine. It is, therefore, 100% legal to install. However, most links scraped from databases and websites are unlikely to hold the proper licencing for broadcasting/distributing the content. In reality, this means you will be unlawfully streaming copyrighted content. Doing so could get you into legal trouble. Accordingly, you may prefer to use this addon with a VPN

  1. Hi,
    I have tried to install it but I received an error after the installation of Burst.

    It seems installed but not recognized by Elementum.

    Thanks
