In this guide, I will walk you through the steps to install Yify Movies HD addon on Kodi 18.4 and Kodi 17.6. The instructions provided here work on all the Kodi supported platforms such as Amazon FireStick, Linux, Mac, Windows, iOS, Android and Raspberry Pi.
Yify Movies HD is a new addon from the popular Stream Army repository. If you are torrenting regular, you must be aware of the Yify torrents. It is one of the popular and widely used torrenting sites around the world. The same team now brings to you the Yify Movies HD Kodi addon, a whole new way to explore and experience entertainment.
Yify has an enormous library of movies, which is freely accessible through torrent clients. But, with its addon, things become a lot more convenient. There is no need to first download the content before watching it. Just install the addon and start streaming. There is a little catch though.
This addon supports only the premium links. Meaning, you must set up a premium hoster on Kodi to watch videos. Real Debrid and Premiumize are the two supported premium hosters. Faster playback and the greater number of quality links always make Real Debrid a preferred choice over Premiumize.
While these premium services cost you some money, they completely redefine your entertainment experience. You don’t have to sift through a pile of links to find a good stream. Bad ones are already filtered out thereby guaranteeing quality playback. Let’s get started!
How to Install Yify Movies HD Kodi Addon
I will now cover the detailed installation instructions for Yify Movies HD addon on Kodi. It will be a two-part process to make things simpler:
- Part 1: Enable Unknown Sources
- Part 2: Installation Procedure
Part 1: Enable Unknown Sources
Unknown Sources is a Kodi setting, which is disabled by default. To install the third-party add-ons, such as Yify Movies HD, this setting must be enabled. Follow these steps:
#1: The first thing you want to do is run Kodi and then open the Settings option from its home screen. Click the cog icon on the top-left
#2: Now open System settings on the next window
Open System if you use Kodi Leia
#3: Select and click the menu item Add-ons on the left and go to the right part of the window. Click Unknown Sources and turn it on
#4: Kodi will display a warning message. Click Yes to make the change.
With this, you are ready to install Yify Movies HD on Kodi.
Note: You may disable Unknown Sources later, once the addon has been installed
Part 2: Yify Movies Kodi Addon Installation Procedure
In this part, we cover the actual steps to install the addon on Kodi. It usually takes 4-5 minutes. Here is what you need to do:
#1: Again, go to the Kodi home-screen and click Settings
#2: From these options, click File manager
Note: File manager is at the first spot in the top row in Kodi 18
#3: Go ahead and click Add source as you see in the following image
#4: When this window pops up on your screen click the <None> option
#5: You must now see a new window with the onscreen keypad. Use this keypad and type in the following path in the empty space above: http://streamarmy.co.uk/repo
This is an important part so make sure you type in the path correctly.
#6: Highlight the empty space with the label Enter a name for this media source and type the name of the source path you added above.
You may choose any name you like. I am choosing streamarmy.
Click OK after rechecking everything you entered is correct.
Up until this point, you added the addon source to Kodi. Now we install the corresponding repository.
#7: Return to the home screen by pressing the back option repeatedly and click Add-ons
#8: Open the Package installer option by clicking the open-box icon in the top-left corner as you see in the following image
#9: Open Install from zip file
#10: Go ahead and click streamarmy or any the source name you chose in step 6 above
#11: Click the latest zip file named repository.StreamArmy with the latest version number. As I write this guide, repository.StreamArmy-10.0.zip is the latest version.
#12: Wait until the repository installation confirmation appears on the top-right of your display
#13: Now click Install from repository on the same window
#14: Go ahead and open Stream Army Repo
#15: Select and open Video add-ons
#16: Scroll down and click Yify Movies HD
#17: Click Install on the bottom right when you see this window
#18: It will take about 2 minutes to install Yify Movies HD addon on Kodi. You will see the add-on installed notification on the top-right of your screen
Well, that will be all. You have successfully installed Yify Movies HD on Kodi.
How to Set Up Yify Movies HD and Use it
As I said before, Yify Movies HD Kodi addon is premium hoster supported addon and works only if you have either configured Real Debrid or Premiumize. It does not have any free streams as I write this guide.
So, to watch videos you must first authorize one of these two premium hosters. I recommend using Real Debrid. It’s not only fast but also gives you more full HD streams.
Important!!! – Follow our detailed guide on how to install and use Real-Debrid on Kodi. Yify Movies HD Kodi addon uses ResolveURL dependency. But, go ahead and follow the steps for the URLResolver dependency as well while setting up Real Debrid on Kodi. Open the Real Debrid guide by clicking the link above and you will know what I am talking about.
Enable Proxy Within Yify Addon
Yify is a well-known torrent resource. Its Kodi addon also relies heavily on torrent links for streaming. Since torrent services are restricted or completely banned in certain countries, the addon may not fetch any streams even with Real-Debrid authorized.
To bypass this limitation, you can enable the Use Proxy Site option within the addon settings. This will route your streaming requests originating from Yify addon through a proxy site. On the other hand, if you want complete protection while streaming, I recommend using a Kodi VPN.
To enable Use Proxy Site option, follow these steps:
#1: Go to the home-screen of Kodi and navigate to Add-ons > Video add-ons.
#2: Long press the Yify addon icon on touch devices, press the menu button on FireStick or right-click the icon on your computer
#3: Choose Settings on this popup
#4: Enable the option Use Proxy Site and click OK
Now go back to Yify Kodi addon and start streaming.
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.
Quick Overview of Yify Movies HD Kodi Addon
You can run Yify addon from Kodi Home-screen > Add-ons > Video add-ons
This is the main screen of the addon:
Yify Kodi addon is only for movies. You will not find any TV shows here. However, whether you are looking for any old or new movie, you are more likely to find it here than anywhere else. That’s because Yify does not rely on the regular scrapers to fetch the streaming links. It plays the videos through the torrent links.
All you need to do is install this addon, configure Real-Debrid, and start watching.
