The Real Debrid service was primarily started as a solution for sites that offer premium download links or free, slow downloads for free. Now there are far to many of these sites to have an account with each and you may not come across the same site again so it would be wasted. So Real Debrid and sites like it offer an account that covers many of these types of sites and therefore download links all under one service and for not a great deal of money.
So where does this fit in with Kodi?
Well, some addon developers know the benefits of these type of sites that offer unrestricted download speeds and good uploads and storage on the developers side. So some addons have the ability to not only give you the normal links all users would see, but also extra links given by access through your Real Debrid account and these are often HD links and also often have 5.1 sound as well (not always though). A good example of this kind of addon is Salts.
Other addons like Release Hub for example give very few links for a particular movie for example but rely on Real Debrid accounts for the majority of its links, especially HD ones.
Signing up for an account is easy and there’s much more info available across at the Real Debrid site which is here
Once you’ve created your account you can incorporate it into kodi. Here’s a quick guide using Release Hub as an example.
- Go to your video addons
- Scroll to Release hub and bring up your context menu
- Now select Resolver settings and it will take you into the reslover lists
- Browse to the Real Debrid resolver and enable the login (off by default)
- You can now enter your username and password which you created on the Real Debrid site. Click the ok tab and you done.
Now when you use the addon you will see the additional links the account gives.

With an account –
So as you can see the difference being signed into an account makes!
I will stress however that not every link will work, they do get taken down, deleted by the site or just malfunction at times but you’ll generally get decent results and if it’s HD and 5.1 links your after in my opinion it’s well worth it.
Most of the addons in The Entertainment Repository have Real Debrid resolvers, as do Salts, Specto, 1channel/Primewire and there’s quite a few more!
It’s an option that few people seem to know about so there’s some info to get you thinking about it.
(Also bear in mind some links may be UK blocked but will work with VPN much the same as any normal addon)
