Easy and fast: How To Configure Gaia Kodi addon - Wizard version

Step 1:  When you open Gaia for the first time you will be welcomed with 3 disclaimers as below. Press Continue, Continue, Agree.

Step 2:  Here starts the Gaia Kodi Addon Configuration Wizard. Choose Yes.

Step 3:  Choose your language to display information like Movie names but also for subtitles. I recommend to set it up as default in English and the fine tune the languages manually in the Tools section. Press Continue , Keep

Step 5: I highly recommend attention on this step! Enable your Trakt (It’s FREE) or choose a free RealDebrid account to test it through their Happy Hours. Read more here

Step 6: Choose Continue for the next 2 configuration windows 

Step 7:  Gaia is asking at this moment if you want to enable torrent streaming. Be careful at this point! If you do not have a premium account on Real Debrid or Premiumize and want to use Quasar (the direct torrent player) your ISP will catch you and you risk serious copyright legal issues!

Step 8: Usenet Streaming. I don’t use it so i choose Disable Usenet.

Step 9:  Choose Enable Hosters then Continue, Automatic and wait for your connection speed test

Step 10:  Choose Detect Failures to get free sources from the web

Step 12:  If you live in a country where your internet provider bans streaming from all the sources then you need to enable your VPN. Otherwise choose Skip and you may return later to the VPN settings in Gaia.

Step 13:  I recommend sharing your internet connection speed with the developers of Gaia to further enable improvements on this addon

How To Configure Gaia Kodi addon - PRO version

If you open Gaia for the first time, you should see a window saying things about Gaia, click back and it will open up a webpage (ignore for now). Now agree to legal disclaimers: there is 4 of them and the 5th window should be the configuration window. Here click NO, then continue with the instructions below:

If you already opened Gaia and want to go to the Advanced Settings then choose Tools -> Settings and then press Advanced.

A. General Tab

Launch Section

  • Automatic Launch –  opens add-on on Kodi launch
    • Recommendation: OFF
  • Splash Screen – Gaia icon on middle of screen when opening add-on 
    • Recommendation: OFF
  • Startup Sound – Sound on Add-on Open 
    • Recommendation: NONE

Language Section

  • Primary Language: Set to your primary language (i.e.: English). Secondary and Tertiary Languages are you choice, I have them set to none.

Playback Section

  • Status Tracking – How to track watched status of your shows or movies.
    • Recommendation: Depends on how you want to use it, if it’s all one Trakt account for your house and you want to be able to tell what shows have been watched in your home, setting to Trakt would be ideal. If you have the same Trakt account for multiple different homes like friends and family, local would be best. If you have it only for yourself then Trakt would be the best option I recommend.
  • Progress Tracking – This tracks where you left off in a show or movie if you only watched it half way. Local: only specific to that device, Trakt: having stop point on all devices using that Trakt account.
    • Recommendation: Once again depends on your use case scenario, in my case I have it set to local.
  • Resume Playback – How you wish Gaia Kodi player to ask you to resume where you left off.
    • Recommendation: Select because it asks you to either resume or restart Automatic will just automatically resume from where you left off

VPN Section

  • VPN – This option is if you wish to use a VPN with Gaia and we STRONGLY encourage you to do so.
    • I don’t use this option since I use Premiumize.  Real Debrid downloads torrents to their servers and then if they’re already cached, TV shows or movies will stream directly from their servers. I find this to be ample protection for myself as it basically works just like any other video locker website. If you want more protection I recommend this option but I don’t have a need for it, your choice Premiumize offers an included VPN with premium service

Parental control Section

Parental Controls – Self-explanatory, restrictions for children
Recommendation: OFF

Statistics Section

  • Statistics Sharing – Usage and speed test statistics sent to the Gaia developers anonymously.
    • Recommendation: ON to help the Gaia dev make the add-on even better but if you wish not to share any details of your Gaia usage turn off

Access option

  • Access Code – Ignore (not for us)

Language Section

  • Multiple Languages – The label to show for streams with multiple audio languages. Either show all languages available or the word Multi

  • Stream List – The way links show up after scraping. I leave it default as directory. Dialog can be annoying as it goes away when you choose a link and if it’s bad you have to scrape again

C. Accounts Tab

(You need this setup first to enable other options!)

Artwork Section

  • Fanart – this uses media from Fanart.tv
    • Recommendation: Turn on, register an account on Fanart.tv, once done login and go back to home page, scroll to bottom and click on create a key under the api section of the footer
      Click on generate personal API key, you’ll get a long number which you will enter into the api key section of Gaia.

Informants Section

  • Trakt – Keep track of all your progress in shows and movies and make lists with all your favorite tv shows and movies in them
    • Recommendation: Definitely ON
    • Go to trakt.tv, register an account and make sure you are logged in on your computer’s browser or phone’s browser. Once done enable Trakt in Gaia and press Authentication
    • You will get a window  that will inform you to go to https://trakt.tv/activate with a token underneath the link. On windows it copies to clipboard, (I can’t confirm if it works on android or any other platforms that can run a browser. I recommend doing this part on another device like phone or pc/mac browser)
    • Go to the website and either paste or type out the code given. You must be logged into your account to do this first, it should ask you for account details when going to that link if not logged in
    • Now your Trakt account should be paired with Gaia
    • Leave “Marked Watch” and “Notifications” on default settings but you can change them per your choosing. Self-Explanatory
  • IMDB – Wasn’t working for me so I have it disabled but links your IMDB account to Gaia
  • TMDB – I don’t use it but once you make an account on the website and verify account, click on your user profile picture, settings, API and copy the Auth v3 key to the api field in Gaia.

Premium Section

  • Premiumize.me – This is only needed if you have a PM account, which we recommend, but if you do, you do not enter your username and password here. We’ll explain below:

    • Make a premium account with premiumize.me and login
    • Once done go to account on the top left corner
    • Here you will see the required information which is Customer ID and PIN
    • On this same page scroll down to bottom and enable SSL and Labs. Very Important!
    • Click on show pin and copy the customer ID and PIN to the Gaia premiumize settings
    • Encryption: Enabled, default
    • Request Method: Usually DEFAULT, but when when default PM api is having issues like we currently are, switch to GET
    • Automatic Removal: Default, enabled
    • On Addon Launch: Default, none
    • On Playback End: Default, last
    • On Download Failure: Default, last
  • RealDebrid – Enable if you have an account, and press authenticate, follow instructions. We offer you a free happy-hours offer for Real-Debrid using this secret link
  • Offcloud – Never used them before but from the looks of the settings you get an API key you insert and i would also turn on instant streams and the rest default
  • All other Debrid (i.e. alldebrid, etc) services which are not so popular but have their user base who want to enjoy Gaia on their Kodi

Universal Providers Section

  • TorrentLeech – Access to torrents on TorrentLeech
    • If you have it enable it and add your credentials. If not leave it Disabled
  • UsenetCrawler, NZBFinder, NZBndx, NZBgeek – Usenet providers
    • We don’t have any usenet accounts and so leave them all disabled
  • Alluc –Not recommended for now because of no temp limit increase unless if you pay for alluc like i do. Main purpose is for when there are no cached torrents but nanscrapers does a good job at that already so you can avoid alluc all together. Alluc is a website with many links and is a collection of links many other add-ons gather from other websites. With premiumize, some of the links can be used with it and stream faster due to not having speed limits i.e.: rapidgator links
    • To get API key go to https://accounts.alluc.ee and click on REGISTER
    • Enter account information
    • Verify account
    • Then return here and login: https://accounts.alluc.ee and you will have an api key listed in your profile.
    • Copy that to the api field for alluc in Gaia
    • Stream Quality – Default: Any
    • Stream Limit – Default: 10 (on free accounts limit is 200/day)

English Providers

  • MoviesPlanet – Access content from this provider.
    • Recommendation: Login if you have an account
  • Ororo – Access content from this provider
    • Recommendation: Enable if you want to and enter your credentials for https://ororo.tv/ but i haven’t seen many links come from Ororo regardless
  • StreamLord– Access content from this provider
    • Recommendation: Login if you have an account

D. Scraping Tab

Providers Section

  • Provider Optimization – Tries to find the best provider timeout for your internet speed
    • Recommendation: Try it out and see what you get. If you have a slow device like a firestick do not expect a low number
  • Provider Timeout – Time for providers like thepiratebay, alluc etc to try before timing out.
    • Recommendation: If you have a decent device like a desktop computer, nvidia shield, etc with good internet above 25mbps, then I recommend 15-30 seconds max, we have it set to 30 seconds with no issues.

Season Packs Section

  • Season Packs – this option can be great to have enabled for shows like the simpsons and family as many torrents will be whole packs with all the episodes. I have comes across issues with this in the past where it chose the wrong file. A selection prompt is a feature that I hope will be added for season packs in the future.
    • Recommendation: Enabled, but if you experience the wrong episode over and over You should turn it off

Alternative Titles Section

  • Alternative Titles – Helps with finding streams by using alternative titles for media especially for foreign languages.

  • Failure Detection – Automatically disables providers that do not finish before the provider timeout
    • Recommendation: Enabled
    • Stop Threshold: Default
    • Retry Delay: 2

Preemptive Termination Section

    • Recommendation: Enable
    • Minimum Streams: 10
    • Stream Mode: Automatic Only
    • Stream type: Cached
    • Video Quality: (this is minimum not quality you want) HD720
    • Video Codec: If you have a device that doesn’t like h265 links set this to h264, if not, set it to any
    • Audio Channels: Any
    • Audio Codec: Any

E. Providers Tab

Here we can control what providers we wish to use when scraping for links/streams

Provider Customization Section

  • Custom Locations – This is for countries like the UK where certain websites are blocked so you can change the base link to the website to a mirrored website or proxy website that contains all the same data.
  • Custom Presets – Presets for providers, leave disabled

Universal Providers Section

  • Local Content – If you have files in your local library
    • Recommendation: If you have files locally or through a NAS or something enable, if not disable
  • Special Content – For NAN Scrapers and VideoScraper for android (which we don’t recommmend)
    • Recommendation: Enable only NANscrapers !
  • Premium Content – For use with Real Debrid or Premiumize me
    • Recommendation: Enabled
      • If using premiumize enable, if not disable
      • If using RD enable, if not disable
      • If using EasyNews enable, if not disable
  • Torrents Member – Account with torrentleech
    • Recommendation: Disable if you don’t have account. Enable if you do.
  • Torrents Open – open torrent websites like thepiratebay, etc
    • Recommendation: Definitely enable
    • Leave all torrent websites enables unless you don’t want any
  • Usenet member – Only if you have accounts on those websites, I don’t use usenet so I cannot comment on this section
  • Usenet open – Again I don’t use Usenet so unless you do, disable
  • Hosters member – For the alluc account we added earlier
    • Recommendation: Enable

English Providers Section

  • Hosters member – For Ororo, Streamlord, or moviesplanet.
    • Recommendation:  enable if you added your accounts earlier
  • Hosters Open – scrapes links from all websites listed below just like Incursion,  Placenta, Neptune Rising, Covenant etc.
    •  Recommendation: Disabled. After testing out only cached torrents and NaN Scrapers, there’s no need to use open hosters anymore. Alluc provides many of the same links and almost all are capable of being premium links and running them through RealDebrid will prevent pairing with links from openload and thevideo. So far a great experience for us!

    • Speed test optimization: Try it out and see what you get, if you have bad internet use this option, if not I had set it to none. I’ve been good on my systems in my house with 30mbps but your mileage may vary. 
    • Max Bandwidth Consumption:  I Recommend around 4 on a internet connection of 25-40 mbps. This caps files to around 2-3gb. This prevents Gaia from listing massive files from bluray rips where they can be as high as 65 GB sometimes. If you have 100mbps+ set to none.

    • Video Codec: If you have any issues with H265 links set to H264, if not set to Any
    • 3D videos: I exclude them but if you want them, include. Still recommend exclude though

  1. Whenever I select a movie to watch it will find and show me all the streams it found with a little icon but it will not load the page where I can actually select the stream…it just keeps me on the original page where I select a movie.

    I am using a Firestick.

  2. Hi,

    Im using real-debrid to stream the torrents, it works fine most of the time but I’m finding a lot of streams open and show “0” then just cancel and never play. But if I download the torrent in my browser, it works fine!

    Im using a FireStick (newest version)

    1. Hey Scott,

      That’s because the sources you found and you tried playing in Gaia are fake. Usually this happens when searching for movies that are in cinemas. So there are big chances that your content is not yet available for online streaming.

    Im using real-debrid to stream the torrents, it works fine most of the time but I’m finding a lot of streams open and show “0” then just cancel and never play. But if I download the torrent in my browser, it works fine!

    Im using a FireStick (newest version)

    1. Hey Scott,

      That’s because the sources you found and you tried playing in Gaia are fake. Usually this happens when searching for movies that are in cinemas. So there are big chances that your content is not yet available for online streaming.
