In this guide, I will show you how to install the DuffLight build on Kodi 18.4 and Kodi 17.6. This build is especially suited for Amazon FireStick, but it can just as well be installed on other Kodi devices such as Android TV, Android Boxes, Android Mobiles, Windows, Mac and more. It is best used on remote-friendly devices.
DuffLight is a simple build with all the important features you would expect in any build. The developers have cut down on the non-essential items to make the build lightweight and fast. That’s the reason why it works so well on FireStick and other devices with moderate hardware configuration. The build lets you watch all types of video content. It is preloaded with dozens of quality addons. Let’s learn more about this build. Keep reading!

Before you start streaming with Kodi Addons / Builds, I would like to warn you that everything you stream on Kodi is visible to your ISP and Government. This means, streaming copyrighted content (free movies, TV shows, Sports) might get you into legal trouble.
Kodi users are strongly advised to connect a VPN while streaming. A VPN for Kodi will bypass ISP throttling, Government Surveillance, and geo-restriction on popular Add-ons. I always connect ExpressVPN on all my streaming devices and I suggest you do the same.
ExpressVPN is the fastest and most secure VPN. It comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. Meaning, you can use it freely for the first 30-days and if you are not satisfied with the performance (which is highly unlikely), you can ask for the full refund.
NOTE: We do not encourage the violation of the copyright laws. But, what if you end up streaming content from an illegitimate source unintentionally? It is not always easy to tell the difference between a legit and illegal source.
So, before you start streaming on Kodi, here's how to get VPN protection in 3 simple steps.
Step 1: Get the ExpressVPN subscription HERE.
Step 2: Click HERE to download and install the ExpressVPN app on your device.
Step 3: Click the Power icon to connect a VPN server. That's all. Your connection is now secure with the fastest and best VPN for Kodi.
How to Use DuffLight Build
This is the home-screen of Kodi after installing the DuffLight build. Looks quite clean to me.
Note: Please allow the build to update its add-ons if this is the first time you are running it
DuffLight is a minimal, lightweight build. That makes it a perfect build for FireStick and other low-spec devices.
The layout of this build is quite similar to most builds, with the menu bar running from left to right. But, there are some differences in the way you interact with the build.
The first thing remarkably noticeable is that DuffLight build doesn’t have a submenu bar snapped to the main menu bar. You bring up the submenu, select an item in the menu and click it (or press the down navigation key)
As you can see in the image below, I selected Movies and then expanded it to bring up the submenu.
The submenu shows the addons related to Movies and other options like Authorize RD.
Note: If you have Duff Light Kodi build on Mac or Windows, you will notice a small popup in place of the mouse cursor saying, Warning! Mouse not supported please disable. That’s because this build is primarily for the touch and remote-controlled devices. However, the mouse clicks still work and you still use the build on your computer. It wouldn’t be exactly very convenient though.
There isn’t a great deal to explore in this build. To keep it light, the developers have cut down the features to basics. But, I don’t mind it. Some builds come loaded with tons of features we barely get to use or don’t care about.
The steps above will help you install the DuffLight build on Kodi. Even though this build works on all the devices which support Kodi, it is particularly suited for FireStick due to its small size. The build works almost without any glitches or lags on my FireStick device. Go ahead and try it!
