Gaia Kodi is at the moment one of the best Kodi addons for streaming movies, shows, documentaries, and short films from torrents, usenet, file hosters, and streaming services. Gaia Kodi is highly optimized for the debrid services Premiumize, RealDebridOffCloud and EasyNews. The addon has a professionally designed interface for quick navigation and content exploration. Gaia Kodi comes packed with a huge collection of providers, support for multiple debrid services, Trakt and LightPack integration, support tools, and much much more.

How to install Gaia Kodi Add-on

1. Open Kodi on your platform. After a few seconds waiting for completely loading Kodi, you will see the standard main interface (in the images we are using Kodi 17.6. The interface in Kodi 18 Leia is mainly similar so you should follow the same steps). Start by clicking on the SETTINGS button on the top left (it is that cog wheel under Kodi logo).

2. Position and Open the Files manager in the bottom right of Kodi -> Settings window.

3. You have 2 similar panels here. Tap on Add source on any of them to bring the next window where you will input the source path.

4. With the Add file source dialogue box open, position and click on  selection as in the image below.

5. A full screen will appear next, where you will need to input from the keyboard the Gaia Kodi repository path:  with no mistakes.  Remember to pay attention to input the correct path letter by letter. If you make any mistake, the path won’t be added and will lead to malfunction in the next steps.

6. In the “Enter a name for this media source” field pick any desired name for the source name. We recommend that you name it Gaia (for easy identification later). Then press ok. Be careful with the chosen name: that name shouldn’t have been used before.

7. Next return to the KODI Main Menu by pressing BACK key multiple times. Now go and click on Add-ons from the left main menu (the one with the open box).

8. On the top left corner, you’ll get 3 new icons. Go to the Open Box (or unzipper, the first icon on the top left screen) and just click on it.

9. Then on the next screen, you will see a list of multiple options. We need to go to the Install from zip file section in order to open the addon source.

10. A new window called Install from zip file opens. You will have a list of local and internet sources. Simply select and click on ‘Gaia‘ (or whatever name you saved in step 6).

11.  Now click on (if the file version is a little bit different you shouldn’t worry. Probably it has been recently updated).

12. Just click on it and press INSTALL and WAIT for the top right notification saying “Gaia Repository Successfully Installed” message.

13. If the above step succeeded you will be returned to the previous menu (as in step 8) where you have the add-on browser interface.

14. This time click on the 3rd menu called Install from Repository – see the selection in the image below

15. Go down to “Gaia Repository

16. Simply choose Video Add-ons

17. Now select Gaia and choose Install (the cloud icon in the bottom right)

18. To start enjoying your brand new installed Kodi addon go to Video add-on section and locate the Gaia icon.

Gaia supports a variety of premium or debrid services. Which one is best, is dependent on your preferences and geographic location. Premium services support different hosters, networks, and functionality. The premium services also have different performing servers in different locations. Hence, one service might have a server close to you, and you might therefore get better download speeds from them. You can use the built-in speed test in Gaia to check your connection and compare it against other users’ speeds.

The developer’s of Gaia suggest one of the following services:

  • RealDebrid: Supports torrents and hosters only. Their cache inspection is slow and not well supported. They have been around for a while with consistent speeds. Their API is lacking and does not support as many features as their competitors. Their subscriptions are affordable compared to other services. Some users have also reported better download speeds from them.
  • Premiumize: Supports torrents usenet, hosters, and fast debrid inspection. They have the most diverse API, providing advances features. This service has been around for a while and has proven stable over the years. Their subscription packages are medium cost, depending on what time of the year you buy.
  • OffCloud: Supports torrents, usenet, hosters, and fast debrid inspection. They are relatively new to the game and not as mature as some of their competitors. Their packages are also slightly more expensive than some other services. However, their service and support looks very promising and if they maintain their speeds in the future, they will become the new favourite of Gaia.Special offer: As a courtesy, they offer you to submit 3 links for free every month, including file-storage or BitTorrent. If you love their service, you might consider a paid membership. Join now for FREE
  • Other: The other premium services, that is EasyNews, AllDebrid, and RapidPremium are supported but provide very limited features without torrent functionality. These services are not advised, but if you already have an account with them, you can integrate them into Gaia.

If you struggle to decide, Gaia suggest either ReadDebrid or Premiumize.

We have a detailed article about how those debrid services will enhance your experience and a comparison of Real Debrid vs Premiumizeservices

Reaper’s Quick Setup Guide

This Mini-Setup Guide will include steps like if you were starting from scratch.

  1. Open Gaia

  2. Press “OK” and “Agree” through all the prompts until get to the one with Full or Basic Settings Selections. If you’re on Krypton you can use Full Settings With Help Labels**.** If you’re on Leia YOU MUST USE Basic Settings Without Help Labels. If you don’t do this you will have issues with settings in Leia.

  3. In Setup Mode Select Reaper Setup

  4. Press “Ok”, “Yes”, “Continue”, and then you will be at the accounts list. Authenticate all your accounts that you have available to authenticate such as Trakt, RD, PM, and then Press Continue

  5. Press “Continue” on the Provider Prompt, click Continue (Note: If you see Civitas enabled here, disable and enable OpenScrapers instead)

  6. Choose what you want, Automatic or Manual Playback, I recommend manual

  7. Press Finish

  8. Go to Gaia, tools, settings, Advanced to open up settings

  9. Go to Provider 1 Tab ( for Basic Settings, for Full just go to Providers) and go to OpenScrapers and Press Installation. Should Prompt you to install

  10. Once installed, close Kodi Open it again

  11. Go to Gaia, tools, settings, Advanced to open up settings

  12. Go to Provider 1 Tab ( for Basic Settings, for Full just go to Providers) and go to OpenScrapers and Press Providers. This will give you a window with provider settings for the selected scraper pack, no longer will it rely on external settings 🙂

  13. Press Disable All, Then Press Enable Native, Then close, and Ok on the settings window

  14. Go back to tools, and go to Providers

  15. Press Verification, let it finish until you get the list. Once done hit back and you’ll get a prompt to auto disable all failed scrapers.

  16. Now you’re all done in Gaia but make sure to Authenticate your debrid services in ResolveURL as well! Gaia can now pass hosters off to ResolveURL properly. you can get there by going to Kodi settings,system,addons,manage dependencies, and look for ResolveURL.

Gaia is a fork of bubbles but has had many changes since the fork. Gaia is primarily a debrid required add-on which gives you access to cached and uncached torrents, hosters, & usenet files. For the best experience a debrid service like Real-Debrid or Premiumize is Required!
