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 Premiumize services
Gaia seems slow on your Kodi?
Gaia is packed with many advanced features. Some of these features are computationally expensive and may therefore take some time to execute. Scraping can take a few minutes, the rest of the addon should however run smoothly. This is a well known problem, especially on slow media boxes, such as Fire Sticks, Raspberry Pis, and other devices with slow processors and/or limited memory.
Features will not be removed from Gaia simply to accommodate people with slow devices. The addon is continuously improved to be more efficient. You can tweak many of the default settings to drastically reduce the scraping and processing time. If you have tweaked all possible settings, waiting a few minutes the scraping to finish is not the end of the world.
You can try the following to improve your experience with Gaia:
- Get a faster device or install Kodi on your desktop or laptop.
- Make sure that no other background processes or addons are running that might consume you processing resources.
- Use the built-in provider optimization (this might be inaccurate): Gaia → Tools → Providers → Optimization.
- Disable all the providers that you do not need: Gaia → Tools → Settings → Providers.
- Enable early stopping once enough sources were found: Gaia → Tools → Settings → Scraping → Preemptive Termination.
- Disable season pack searches: Gaia → Tools → Settings → Scraping → Season Packs.
- Enable failure detection to automatically disable providers that are slow: Gaia → Tools → Settings → Scraping → Season Packs.
