In this guide, I will show you how to install the DuffLight build on Kodi 18.9 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 Kodi Build: Installation Instructions
Before we start with the installation process of Duff Light Kodi build, please follow the steps below and enable Unknown Sources:
Open Settings menu from the Kodi home-screen.
Open System Settings.
Select Add-ons on the left.
Click the switch next to Unknown Sources and turn it on (if it is OFF)

You can now install the DuffLight build on Kodi. Here are the steps:
Attention, Kodi Users!
Kodi Addons and builds offer unlimited streaming content, but could also get you into legal trouble if caught streaming free movies, TV shows, or sports. Currently, your IP is visible to everyone. Kodi users are strongly advised to always connect a VPN while streaming online. A good Kodi VPN hides your identity, bypasses government surveillance, geo-blocked content, and ISP throttling (which also helps in buffer-free streaming).
I personally use ExpressVPN, which is the fastest and most secure VPN. It is very easy to install on any device including Amazon FireStick. You get 3-months free and save 49% on its annual plans. Also, it comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. If you are not satisfied, you can always ask for a refund.
Step 1: Go to Kodi home-screen.
Step 2: Open File manager.
Step 3: Click Add source (scroll down a little bit if you do not see this option on this screen).
Step 4: Click <None>.
Step 5: Enter the following URL: http://streamdigital.org/wiz/
Step 6: Enter the name stream or any other name you would like to identify the above source within the field Enter a name for this media source.
You have added the source to Kodi. We will now fetch the Stream Digital add-on from this source. Later, we will install the DuffLight Kodi build from Stream Digital.
Step 7: Go to the Kodi home-screen and click Add-ons.
Step 8: Open Package Installer (click the open box icon on the top-left)
Step 9: Click Install from zip file.
Step 10: Click stream (or click the name you added earlier).
Step 11: Open the zip file plugin.program.sdwiz.zip.
Step 12: Wait for the Stream Digital Add-on installed message.
Stream Digital Wizard has been installed. We will now install the DuffLight build on Kodi from its repository
Step 13: Once the Stream Digital addon is installed, three pop-ups will appear. Click Dismiss on the following prompt.
Step 14: Choose any Settings you wish to enable and click Continue.
Step 15: Click Ignore next (or you may also click Build Menu to start installing the build. But, I will show you how to do that from the home-screen of Kodi.).
Step 16: If the popups appear again, click the same buttons.
Step 17: Go back to Kodi home-screen.
Step 18: Go to Add-ons > Program add-ons and click Stream Digital.
Step 19: Open Builds.
Step 20: In the Krypton Builds section, scroll down and click DuffLight.
Step 21: Click Install.
Step 22: Click Continue when prompted next.
Step 23: Wait for the Dufflight Kodi build to install. It may take several minutes.
Step 24: Click Force Close.
You have successfully installed the DuffLight build on Kodi.
Before you start streaming with Kodi Addons or 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, live TV, and Sports) might get you into legal trouble.
Thankfully, there is a foolproof way to keep all your streaming activities hidden from your ISP and the Government. All you need is a good VPN for Kodi. A VPN will mask your original IP which is and will help you bypass Online Surveillance, ISP throttling, and content geo-restrictions.
I personally use and recommend ExpressVPN, which is the fastest and most secure VPN. It is compatible with all kinds of streaming apps and devices.
NOTE: We do not encourage the violation of 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. It comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. Meaning, you can use it free for the first 30-days and if you are not satisfied with the performance (which is highly unlikely), you can ask for a full refund.
Step 2: Click HERE to download and install the ExpressVPN app on your streaming device. If you are using a FireStick, I have given the exact steps starting with Step 4 below.
Step 3: Click the Power icon to connect to a VPN server. That's all. Your connection is now secure with the fastest and best VPN for Kodi.
The following are the steps to install Kodi VPN on your Fire TV devices. If you have other streaming devices, follow Step 1-3 above.
Step 4: Subscribe to ExpressVPN HERE (if not subscribed already).
Step 5: Go to Fire TV Stick home screen. Click Find followed by Search option (see image below).
Step 6: Type Expressvpn in the search bar and select when it shows up.
Step 7: Click Download.
Step 8: Open the ExpressVPN app and Sign in using the email ID and password that you created while buying the ExpressVPN subscription.
Step 9: Click the Power icon to connect to a VPN server. That’s all. Your FireStick is now secured with the fastest VPN.
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!
