This tutorial covers the steps to install Odin addon on Kodi. Our steps work on FireStick as well as other Kodi devices such as Computers, Mobiles, Raspberry Pi, etc.
Odin is a relatively new video addon (as I write this guide) that lets you stream plenty of on-demand content. Expect to find a big collection of Movies and Shows here. But, there is more to it. It has some specials like Classics, Boxsets, Documentaries, Kids Zone, etc. All these extras are found within the main category Bone Crusher Old.
Odin has also been added to our list of working Kodi addons.
I am providing the detailed installation instructions. Explore Odin Kodi addon and let us know how you like it!
How to Install Odin Kodi Addon
Let me quickly give you a quick overview of what we are going to cover in the installation process. It will help make things easier to grasp. Here is what you will do:
– Allow Unknown Sources
– Add the add-on Source
– Install Goldengun repository
– Install Odin Kodi addon from the Goldengun repository
Let us get started now. Here are the steps:
Follow the steps 1 through 5 to Allow the Unknown Sources
1- From the main window of Kodi, open Settings. We do that by clicking the gear/cog image in the top-left section, under the Kodi logo
2- If you have Kodi 18.3 Leia version (recommended: how to upgrade Kodi to 18.3), click System
Note: Those who still use Kodi 17.6 will click System Settings
3- Go ahead and click Add-ons in the left sidebar
4- Move to the right and toggle the option Unknown Source ON
5- You don’t need to worry about the prompt that is displayed on your screen next. Click Yes
Now, follow the steps 6 through 10 to add the source
6- You now want to go back to the Settings screen again. You may either press the back button once or click Settings on the home screen of Kodi again
Within Settings, click File manager
7- Go ahead and open Add source
8- Click where you see the <None> option
9- Now we provide the source path to Kodi. Type this path: https://goldengunrepo.github.io/install/me/
Make sure you typed the URL correctly. Check it at least once before clicking OK
10- Now, go ahead and click inside the field where it asks you to enter the source name
Type the source name
Let’s say we call it odin
Steps 11 through 15 show how to install the Goldengun repository
11- Again, we need to go to the Settings window on Kodi 18.3. Press the back button once. There, we will click Add-ons
Note: If you use Kodi 17.6, go to the home window of Kodi. Click Add-ons in the left sidebar. Next, click the open-box image in the upper-left corner
12- Now click Install from zip file
13- Locate and click the name of the source you added earlier
I am clicking odin, the name I typed
14- Click the most recent version of the repository.goldengun-x.x.x.zip file
For instance, I am clicking the file with the version number 9.1.1
15- Wait for the goldengun repository to install. The notification is displayed in the top-right
The rest of the steps will demonstrate how to install Odin addon on Kodi
16- Now go ahead and click Install from repository
17- Open the goldengun repository you installed a bit back
18- Click Video add-ons
19- Scroll down, locate Odin and click it
20- Click the Install button on the next window
21- On Kodi 18 an additional popup is displayed. You may dismiss it by clicking OK
22- Odin Kodi addon now installs. It may take 2-3 minutes. So, wait. The installation notification is displayed in the upper-right corner
Wonderful! You have successfully installed Odin Addon on Kodi.
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.
Odin Kodi Addon: A Quick Overview
Let me quickly walk you through the Odin addon.
You probably already know that you can access Odin or any other addon from the home window of Kodi. All you go to do is select Add-ons menu item in the left sidebar. The right side will be populated with all your installed addons. You will find Odin in the Video-addons section.
Or, instead of just selecting Add-ons, click it. On the next screen, select Video add-ons. Now, you will find Odin on the right side
Here are the primary streaming categories on the main screen of Odin addon: Movies, TV Shows, Tunes, Bone Crusher Old, New Movies, and New Episodes.
There is a test iptv zone where you may find some working live TV streams. But, it is only in the test phase and not very reliable. I do not consider Odin a multipurpose addon. It is still an on-demand addon.
The sections My Movies and My TV Shows display anything you have marked as favorite or the items that have been synced with your Trakt account.
From the Tools category on the main screen, you can access a variety of addon settings. You can also authorize Trakt and Real Debrid.
How to Enable Subtitles and Downloads on Odin
Odin Kodi addon lets you watch content with subtitles. It also lets you download the content to your local storage. However, both these options are disabled by default and you must turn them ON.
Here is how you can do that:
– Access Odin and click Tools on the main screen (scroll down to the bottom to find Tools option)
– Click SETTINGS: General on the next window
– The following popup window will appear. To enable downloads, click the Downloads tab on the left. Go to the right and toggle ON the option Enable downloads
– To enable subtitles, select the Subtitles tab on the left (below Downloads tab). Go to the right and toggle on Enable subtitles
– Click OK to save the changes
Odin seems like a decent addon to me at this time. It has got plenty of beef when it comes to streaming. Not only the content library is huge, but the addon also makes sure there are enough high-quality streams. You can make things even better by pairing Odin with Real Debrid.
You are going to find the regular sections, Movies, and TV Shows. There is a ‘test IPTV zone’ too but not exactly very reliable (as I mentioned earlier). It has Tunes category, which lets you tune into some radio stations. The Bone Crusher Old category seems interesting with options like Classics, Boxsets, etc. There is no harm in trying. So give it a go!
