In this article, we will learn how to install Fusion on Kodi 19 and Kodi 18, and how to install addons using Fusion. The method described in this guide works on all the Kodi-supported devices including FireStick, Fire TV, Windows PC, Android smartphone, and tablets, etc.
Kodi is a media player whose full potential is only explored through compatible add-ons. The good news is that there are hundreds of addons out there for all kinds of needs and purposes. While video addons are the most popular, Kodi also supports various utility and maintenance addons that make this media player more effective. The only challenge is finding the right add-on for your needs.
Most of us usually lookup for each add-on individually. When you have many addons to install, this method could be inconvenient at best. Thankfully, you don’t have to do it anymore. You can install Kodi Fusion, a source of tons of repositories and addons. Fusion addon was once taken down last year for a few months. But, now it is back and it is better than before.
Let me now show you how to add the Fusion source to Kodi. We will also learn how to install the Indigo add-on, which is further a source for a variety of addons. Later, we will also see how to install repositories using Fusion. Keep reading!
Enable Third-party Addon Installation
The first thing you want to do is allow the third-party addon installation by enabling ‘Unknown Sources.’ Here is how you can do it:
- Open Kodi
- Open the Settings option from the home screen by clicking the gear icon on the top left, underneath the Kodi logo
- Click ‘System’
- Click ‘Add-ons’ on the left panel and enable Unknown Sources on the right
- When you see the following warning message, click ‘Yes’. Fusion is a tested and safe source.
How to Install Fusion on Kodi
Fusion for Kodi is not exactly an add-on, but a source from where you can download several repositories and dozens of addons. So, we will first learn how to add the Fusion Kodi source and then we will see how to install addons like Indigo from it.
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.
To add Fusion to Kodi, follow the steps below.
1. Make sure you are on the Kodi home screen. Open the ‘Settings’ option on the top-left.
2. Open the ‘File Manager’ option the next
3. Now click ‘Add source’ in the next window.
4. Click ‘<None>’ on the ‘Add file source’ dialogue box that shows up
5. Type in http://fusion.tvaddons.co
Make sure you type in the address correctly or you will not be able to add the source to the Fusion repo collection. Click ‘OK’ once done.
6. Now, in the ‘Enter a name for this media source’ type in the name you want to give to this source. I am going to name it ‘Fusion’. You may choose any name you like, but make it relevant.
7. Now click ‘OK’ after entering the source name
You have successfully added the Fusion installer source on Kodi. Now, let’s see how to access the source to install the repositories and addons.
8. Go back to the Kodi home screen and click ‘Add-ons’ option on the left panel
9. Click the ‘open-box’ icon at the top left. This icon is also called ‘Package Installer’.
10. Now click ‘Install from zip file’ on the next Window
On Kodi 19, you will see an additional dialog box after clicking Install from Zip file. Click OK on that dialog box.
11. Now you should be able to see the list of added sources. Click ‘Fusion’, the name of the source we added a little while back
Fusion repos and addons are further organized into three categories namely:
We will explore the Fusion source further. But, let’s first install the Kodi Indigo addon, which is available inside ‘begin-here’
How to Install Indigo Addon on Kodi
Indigo is the most popular add-on available through the Fusion installer. This is why it will be the first item we will install from Fusion for Kodi. We will also explore the Kodi Indigo addon together.
Indigo is a versatile addon that brings many tools and utilities and adds many functions to Kodi. Indigo is most popularly known as the Kodi addon installer. This addon lets you install dozens of apps from its library in a wide range of categories including Fusion TVAddons, movie addons, and a lot more.
With Indigo, add-on installation becomes extremely easy. You can get any addon from its library with just a touch of a button. You can also install any addon from a zip file saved online by providing the URL to the file.
Here is how you can install the Indigo addon.
1. From the Kodi home screen, click Add-ons on the left, followed by the Package Installer icon on the top-left. Now, click ‘Install from zip file’. When you see the list of the added sources, simply click ‘Fusion’
2. As we have already seen, Fusion is divided into three categories. Click ‘begin-here’.
3. You should now see the zip file named plugin.program.indigo-4.0.3.zip. The numbers towards the end of the filename may change depending upon the version released. At the time of writing this article, it is 4.0.3.
Click this zip file.
4. Now, wait for the ‘Indigo Add-on installed’ notification. This notification will appear on the top-right.
5. Return to Kodi home screen and navigate to Add-ons > Video Add-ons. You will find Indigo on the list of the addons.
You can also access Indigo from Add-ons > Program Add-ons as Indigo is also a maintenance and utility tool.
How to Use Indigo Addon Installer Tool
Open ‘Indigo‘ from the Add-ons section. As you can see in the image below, Indigo offers a number of features and options. It has the Config Wizard, Addon Installer, Maintenance Tools, and a lot more.
As ‘Addon Installer’ is the most popular option, we will take a look at it. Click ‘Addon Installer’ on the list of the available options
Indigo gives you several options to install the addons as is evident in the image below. ‘Featured Addons’ shows the most downloaded addons first. You can also explore addons by categories such as Video Addons, Audio Addons, Program Addons, etc.
Go ahead and open any option you like and explore it further.
Indigo also allows you to install any addon that is not available in its library. What you need is a link to the zip file. Click the ‘Install Zip from Online Link’ option and enter the URL of the zip file. Indigo will install the addon without any hassles.
That’s pretty much it about the Indigo addon. Let us now explore the Fusion installer further.
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 Install Repositories using Fusion on Kodi
Indigo isn’t the only add-on you can install through Fusion. In fact, Fusion has a huge collection of all kinds of repositories. I will now show you how to access Fusion’s library of repositories and how to install them.
When you are on the Kodi home-screen, open Add-ons and click the ‘Package Installer’ icon on the top-left. Now, click ‘Install from zip file.’ Next, click the ‘Fusion’ source that we added earlier. As already, discussed, you will see the following three options.
This time, click ‘kodi-repos’. This is the place where all the Fusion repositories reside.
Kodi-repos is further divided into three categories:
You can explore the relevant repositories in each category. For instance, click ‘English’ and you will see the list of all the available repositories in the English language
In the same way, when you click ‘International’, you will find all the repos in the International languages.
Click the zip file of the repository you wish to install and Fusion will install it on Kodi for you.
Adding Fusion to Kodi seems like a good idea to me. It has worked out pretty well for me indeed. I can get most of the addons I need through one of the repositories Fusion hosts. I have also installed the Indigo addon and it lets me install any addon I want that is not part of the Fusion library. Fusion for Kodi is especially recommended to those who keep installing addons regularly. I hope this article was of help to you.
