In this guide, I’ll show you how to install MP3 Streams on your Kodi app. You can apply the instructions in this article to any device or operating system that supports Kodi, like Amazon FireStick, Windows PC, macOS, Android, Android TV boxes, Linux, and more. Furthermore, you can install the addon on Kodi 20 Nexus or Kodi 19 Matrix.
The majority of users know about the video supremacy of Kodi, as video addons on Kodi are highlighted all the time. However, there’s a different side of Kodi that’s also applaudable and quite useful for a certain audience. I’m talking about the audio experience on Kodi.
In this article, I’ll take you through the audio journey of using the famous MP3 Streams Kodi addon. Background information, the installation procedure, a walkthrough of the addon—you name it, I’ll cover it. Let’s jump in!
What Is MP3 Streams?
MP3 Streams takes you back to the good old-fashioned world when you only had access to the audio of songs rather than intricate music videos.
With MP3 Streams, you can stream your favorite songs/albums, explore artists and genres, check out leaderboards, create playlists, and more. Want to know the best part? Everything is completely free!
The MP3 Streams library is HUGE! Whether you are looking to play a song from the 80s or a recent hit, this addon has everything. Also, you’ll find covers of your favorite songs, collaborations among multiple artists, and everything in between.
You are just a download away from true audio greatness! Use the instructions a bit later in this guide to install MP3 Streams and explore a new world of music.
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 to 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.

Is MP3 Streams Safe & Legal?
Safety and legality are two different issues. I’ll shed light on both of them separately.
First, let’s discuss safety. MP3 Streams is hosted in a reputable repository, The Crew Repo. The developers of the repo have been in the game for a long time, and since the beginning, no user has ever complained about any security issues.
Just to be sure, I ran a scan on the addon and found nothing worrying. The scan of the Crew Repository came up 100% safe. Here’s the proof:
Next up, we have the concern of legality. As MP3 Streams is hosted on a third-party repository instead of an official one, it can be considered to exist in a gray area. It’s not definitively legal or illegal. It depends on what content you access with the addon and whether that content is legal to stream in your region. At FireStickTricks.com, we don’t have the resources to determine its true status for each individual user.
FireStickTricks.com is strictly against content piracy, and we don’t encourage or promote it to any degree. You’re responsible for avoiding illegal content. But in case you end up making an honest mistake, I recommend using ExpressVPN to help yourself stay safe and to enjoy content worry-free.
How to Install MP3 Streams on Kodi
Let’s jump in and see how you can install MP3 Streams on any Kodi-supported device. I have split this section into three parts so you can easily follow along. Make sure not to skip any steps, as that could cause problems during the installation of MP3 Streams.

Part 1: Enable Unknown Sources on Kodi
MP3 Streams is a third-party Kodi addon residing in a third-party repo. So, in order to install it, we’ll have to enable Unknown Sources in the Kodi application. This will allow us to add any third-party repo.
By default, Unknown Sources are turned off in Kodi, mainly to safeguard new users from potentially malicious addons. However, MP3 Streams is safe and secure to download, so we can turn on the option without any problems.
So, here’s how:
1. On Kodi’s home, click on the settings gear in the top-left corner.
2. You’ll land on the settings page. Then, open System located on the bottom-right of your screen.
3. On the next screen, scroll down on the left panel and go to Add-ons.
4. You’ll see multiple options on the right-hand side. Select Unknown sources and turn it on.
5. You’ll receive a warning message from Kodi regarding your safety and security. Click Yes to continue.
6. Now, on Kodi 19 Matrix, if you want to update third-party addons/repos automatically the same way official ones are updated automatically, you have to enable another option.
Select the Update official add-ons from option just below Unknown sources.
7. A new window will appear. Select Any repositories.
Part 2: Install the Repository with MP3 Streams
As MP3 Streams is hosted in The Crew Repository, you’ll have to install it first. So this part shows how you can load the Crew Repository on your Kodi app. Once we’re done with this part, we’ll be able to access the MP3 Streams addon. So, here’s how you do it:
1. On Kodi’s home page, click on the settings gear to go to the settings page.
2. On the settings page, click on File manager located on the top-left side of your screen.
3. On the file manager screen, scroll down and select Add source. Since I’m demonstrating the process on a clean Kodi app, this option is visible near the middle of the screen. If you have other repositories added here, Add source will be lower, at the end of the list.
4. Click on the area that says <None>.
5. Now, enter the URL https://team-crew.github.io/ and click on the OK button to save it. Make sure you enter the URL exactly as shown here.
Note: FireStickTricks.com doesn’t own or host the Crew Repository. We aren’t associated with the repository in any way.
6. Type the name crew under the Enter a name for this media source option. Click OK.
7. Use your back button to return to the settings page. Click on the Add-ons tile.
8. On the following page, click Install from zip file.
9. On Kodi 19 Matrix, you’ll see a warning. Read it and click Yes to continue.
10. A window will appear. Click crew.
11. Next up, you’ll see the file repository.thecrew-x.x.x.zip. Click on it to start the installation process for the repository.
Note: The repository version changes from time to time. Select the file even if the numbers are different than shown below.
12. Just wait for the notification repository installation notification in the top-right of your screen.
Part 3: Install MP3 Streams
We’ve turned on unknown sources and added the repository we need. Now, it’s time to install the MP3 Streams Kodi addon. So, here’s how it breaks down:
1. On the same screen, select Install from repository.
2. Next, scroll down and select The Crew Repo.
3. On the next page, scroll down and select Music add-ons.
4. You’ll come across a lot of music addons, mostly in alphabetical order. Scroll down to the M section and select MP3 Streams.
5. MP3 Streams’ dashboard will appear. Click Install, located on the bottom right.
6. Wait for Kodi to download and install MP3 Streams on your device.
7. Once it’s done, a notification will pop up on the top-right saying MP3 Streams Add-on installed.
That’s all! You have successfully loaded the famous MP3 Streams addon on your Kodi app.
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.
