In this guide, I will tell you how to install Neptune Rising on Kodi 18.3/ 18.2 Leia and Kodi Krypton 17.6. The images in this guide are from Kodi Krypton but they apply to Kodi Leia too. The best thing about Kodi (formerly known as XBMC) is that it has the exact same interface on all the platforms. So if you are using PC, Android TV box, Nvidia Shield or Fire TV Stick, the same guide will work for you.
Neptune Rising is a Kodi addon which works quite like a search engine for movies and TV shows. It has different sections for 80s movies, latest movies, gangster movies, etc. which is really helpful to find the right stuff you are looking for. It is one of the oldest running addons. Even though it continues to provide streams, Neptune Rising isn’t the most reliable. There are several better quality addons out there to explore. You may want to take a look at our Best Kodi Addons list.
Note: Fire Stick Tricks do not condone copyright infringement. We suggest users to use this Add-on to watch only movies / TV Shows that are available in the public domain. Watching copyrighted content without permissions is unlawful and could get you into legal troubles.
Now that you know what Neptune Rising Addon is, let’s start with the step-by-step installation guide.
Note: Neptune Rising is an old addon and probably not maintained by the developers any longer. You may try one of the other addons from our list of Best Kodi Addons.

How to Use Neptune Rising Safely
Neptune Rising is still one of the most looked up and widely used Kodi addons. It has a huge library of content that you can stream on your device. However, there is something important that you should know before using any Kodi Addon including Neptune Rising.
ISPs and Governments across the World monitor their users’ online activities. If you caught streaming free movies and TV Shows, you are likely to get copyright notices and might end up with hefty fines and legal fees.
Kodi users are strongly advised to use 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 Kodi friendly, secure, and reliable service. It also offers 30-day money-back guarantee. Means, you can use it freely for first 30-days and if don’t like their service (which is highly unlikely), you can simply ask for the full refund.
So, before you start streaming, 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 to a VPN server. That’s all. Your connection is now secure with the fastest and best VPN for Kodi.

Neptune Rising failed to install dependency
I have been receiving a few queries about Neptune Rising Add-on that they are facing error “Failed to install a dependency.” I discussed the issue with several users and found out that the issue resolved for almost everyone just by simply reinstalling the Add-on. What you need to do is – Remove Source Repo URL, Remove MrFreeWorld Repository, exit Kodi. Now start the installation procedure from Step 1 of this guide.
To remove Source Repo URL go to Settings > File manager. Select the source and right click if you are using a computer, long press if you are using a touch device, or press menu button on your FireStick remote. Now click Remove Source
To remove the MrFreeWorld Repository, go to Kodi home-screen > Add-ons > My add-ons >Add-on repository > Mr Freeworld > Uninstall
Another way to fix the dependency error is to install the Covenant addon. Covenant comes with several dependencies that are usually missing in other addons.
If you still get the error, here’s my guide to fix failed to install a dependency on Neptune Rising or any other addon. If you still not able to fix it, let me know in the comments below.
Explore Neptune Rising Kodi Addon
Now that you have installed Neptune Rising on Kodi 17.6, you can access the Add-on by going to Kodi homepage > Add-ons > Video Add-ons.
Once you will open the Add-on, you will see the different folders for Movies, TV Shows, IMDB list etc. You can explore it as per your preferences.
If you get buffering problems, here’s how to fix buffering issues on Kodi.
Neptune Rising No Stream Available Error
As you know, Neptune Rising is just a search engine which searches for streams from different sources. It is possible that some of the movies / TV shows do not have available streams so in that case, you will get no streams available error. I suggest that you try to play a different show and see if you still get the error. It should probably work fine, but if you still see no streams available, you should clear the Addon cache.
Open Neptune Rising Add-on, go to “Tools” and click “Clear Cache.” Click “yes” when it asks for the confirmation. Now restart Kodi and try the play again. I hope that it should work by now.
If it still doesn’t work, try other addons from our Best Kodi Addons list.
Neptune Rising Buffering Issues
Buffering on Kodi is a common but frustrating issue that must be fixed for a smooth streaming experience. Several users have reported buffering problems on Neptune Rising Addon. So if you are one of them, I suggest that you give a try to Real Debrid which offers tons of new streaming sources that work smoothly even when you play 1080p full HD.
