What is Stremio?

Stremio is an online media streaming service for movies, TV shows, and other content. It works on computers, mobile phones, and TV boxes. You can download it from the Google Play Store or Apple Store. However, you need to sideload it on Firestick and some Android devices.

Like Kodi, Stremio requires addons for enhanced functionality. However, Stremio addons are installed online and don’t take up local storage space. This is great for low-storage devices like Firestick, and once you install an addon on one device, it’s available on all devices linked to your account.

Absolutely! This application doesn’t host any content and essentially functions as a search engine. As a result, it’s completely legal to download and use. However, it’s important to be aware that certain content may not be authorised for sharing.

Streaming such content could lead to consequences similar to those of unauthorised downloading of copyrighted material. It’s important to take precautions when using the app to avoid any legal issues. We recommend using a VPN to ensure your safety and privacy.

Install Torrentio (Recommended) Addon

Torrentio is currently one of the most reliable addons for Stremio, offering a complete streaming experience.

However, it’s important to note that Torrentio uses torrent links to stream movies and TV shows. So, using a VPN when streaming from Stremio is highly recommended to ensure your streaming activity remains private and secure from prying eyes, such as your ISP.

Torrentio can be used with or without Real Debrid. It will function properly even if you don’t use Real Debrid, but you’ll get access to higher-quality links if you choose to use it. If you don’t have Real Debrid, follow the instructions below. If you do and want to configure Stremio to use it, skip to the next section.

Without Real Debrid

  1. Using the device you installed Stremio to manage addons, open your preferred web browser and go to https://stremio-addons.netlify,app.
  2. Find Torrentio and click Configure.

How to Use Stremio

Login and Navigation

To ensure a smooth streaming experience, connecting to a VPN before opening the Stremio app is essential. This is because Torrentio uses torrents, and using a VPN will help protect your privacy and security. Make sure to connect to a server before starting to stream. We recommend selecting a server closest to your location for the best results, which usually provides a faster connection.

Launching the Stremio app for the first time will prompt you to link your account.

Either scan the QR code if you have installed Stremio on your phone or tablet to manage addons, or on a web browser on your PC, go to the personalised link shown on your Firestick to link your account.

Wrapping Up

Stremio is one of the best online streaming services available today. It offers an easy way to stream your favourite content. Stremio is one of the best alternatives to Kodi. While it may not be as versatile as Kodi, some users may prefer it due to its user-friendly layout.

What I like most about Stremio is that it allows for online installation of addons, which saves space on low-storage devices. Additionally, when you install an addon on one device, it will be available on all your devices.
