In this tutorial, I will demonstrate how to install the Riddler Stream addon on Kodi. Use our instructions to get this addon on any Kodi device you like including Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K, FireStick, Fire TV Cube, Android TVs, Android TV Boxes, Android Mobiles & Tablets, Mac, Linux & Windows Computers, iOS devices, and more.
Riddler Stream is an on-demand addon for Kodi that lets you stream your favorite content including Movies and TV Shows. The addon also features MC Jams Music section if you like to listen to music. The Kids Section category has already been added, but you may not find a lot of content here as it is still a work in progress.
Riddler Stream has many free links. But, it works best when paired with Real Debrid. It lets you sign in to your Real Debrid account directly from the home screen.
While Riddler Stream does not have a lot of fancy categories, if all you want to do is watch Movies and Shows, I believe it is one of the best Kodi addons to try. Give it a go!
Note: Add-ons support is available through Mancave’s Twitter Handle.
Steps to Install Riddler Stream Kodi Addon
Remember that Riddler Stream is a third-party Kodi addon, which is obtained from the source Kodi considers ‘unknown’. You may still install this addon but before that, you must first allow the Unknown Sources. It just takes a minute to do that.
Allow Unknown Sources
Follow the steps below:
1- Open the Settings menu of Kodi from the home screen. You will find the settings icon in the top-left corner
2- Now you want to click System (on Kodi 18.4) or System setting (on Kodi 17.6)
3- In the left section of the next screen, click Add-ons
4- Navigate to the right section of the same screen and click Unknown Sources to enable it (only if it is disabled or OFF)
5- Kodi’s security system will throw a warning on the screen. Mancave Repository from where we will install Riddler Stream is completely safe. So, click Yes without any doubts
Now that you have allowed Unknown Sources, you are ready to install the Riddler Stream addon for Kodi.
Now, simply follow the set of instructions provided below and you will have Riddler Streams Kodi addon within minutes:
1- Go the Settings again from the home screen and open File manager
2- Click Add source (it is on both sides of the window and it doesn’t matter which one you click)
3- Click <None> when this small window pops up
4- Now, we will enter the source URL or the source path from where the Mancave Repository and Riddler Stream addon will be installed
5- Before we proceed, we need to name this source we added. It’s completely your choice how you want to name it. Yet, I would recommend choosing a relevant name that you can remember later.
Let’s go with riddler
6- Now we press the back button several times until we are back on the home screen of Kodi
On Kodi 18.4, click Settings icon again in the top-left (image below)
If you are a 17.6 user, click Add-ons on the left (no image)
7- On Kodi 18.4 click the Add-ons option (image below)
On Kodi 17.6, click the small open-box icon in the top-left corner (no image)
8- Click Install from zip file
9- Go ahead and click riddler or the name of the source you chose earlier
10- To install the Mancave Repository, click the file repository.mancaverepo-x.x.x.zip
Note: The version number of the file was 3.1.0 when I wrote this guide. It may have changed.
11- Wait for the notification that says Man Cave Repo Add-on installed. This notification appears in the top-right corner of your display
12- Now open the option Install from repository
13- Click Man Cave Repo
14- Open Video add-ons
15- Scroll down and click Riddler Stream
16- Click Install when you see this window next
17- Click OK on this ‘additional add-ons’ window to continue
18- Wait for the Riddler Stream addon to download and install. It takes a little over a minute (depending upon your device and internet speed)
Great! Riddler Stream Kodi addon is now installed.
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.
How to Use Riddler Stream on Kodi: A Quick Rundown
Go to Add-ons > Video add-ons to access the Riddler Stream addon from the home screen of Kodi. You may also access it from the home screen itself after selecting Add-ons on the left and clicking Riddler Stream on the right under Video add-ons
This is the main screen of the Riddler Stream addon:
As you can see, there are just a handful of categories for streaming including Movies, TV Shows, MC Jams Music, Kids Section (work in progress).
There are utility categories too for pairing with sites such as Olpair, Streamango. In fact, you can pair with Real Debrid too from the home screen of the addon.
If you are experiencing any streaming issues, you may use the ‘Clear Cache’ section.
The metadata processing seems to slow down the navigation sometimes. Most users do not need the metadata enabled as the content of this addon are already well organized. So, for faster navigation, you may disable metadata. Follow the steps below:
1- Access Riddler Stream Kodi addon
2- Click the Settings option on the main screen
3- Select the Customization tab on the left menu. Now go to the right side where you will find the option Enable Metadata under Metadata Provider
You simply need to make sure it is disabled (like you see in the image above)
Riddler Stream looks like a simple, rather fuss-free Kodi addon to me. It doesn’t come with a lot of bells and whistles and fancy categories. However, it could be a viable choice for those who are simply looking to stream high-quality movies and shows. You will also find the MC Jams Music section here if you are interested in streaming music on Kodi.
The addon is currently pulling good quality streams for the most part even without Real Debrid. Of course, with Real Debrid you get access to higher quality links. Taking everything into account, Riddler Stream Kodi addon is a good choice for streamers.
