No this will only integrate Trakt into the some of the applications. Is Trakt free? Yes Trakt is free. But they do offer a premium service that eliminates ads from their website. What is the best way to add my favorite videos to Trakt? We reccomend going to www.Trakt.tv and searching for your titles. Once you find something you would like to add to Trakt, click on Add to Collection. Adding titles to the collection is the best way to be able to access them within the Media Center. Why wouldn’t I just add favorites within the Media Center? Trakt saves your favorites outside of the Media Center. This means that is you do a fresh install your favorites can be easily added using the process above. This also saves your favorites if you were to ever have to delete the Media Center and start all over. Overall it is a better solution then Favorites.

If your updater is Spinning – Checking for updates, Please Wait. Click here!

Sep 8, 2017 9 months ago No Comments

Instructions below if you want to skip the explanation. If you are having issues with the Updater app spinning, we have instructions that you can follow to install a new version of the updater which will work perfectly. If you have already done the update and have the new Media Center app and Skin you do not need to do anything. This is only for people who have not done the update yet. Here is an explanation as to what happened. Our updater talks to an intermediary server that tells our main server that there are updates and directs the Updater app to the links that the user clicks on. We learned during this update that our intermediary server has a limit on the amount of hits it will allow in a 30 minute period. Once this limit is reached it blocks any new hits until it resets. We have used this system since our updater was introduced and never run into this limit before. The new Updater app version is located on a different intermediary server with no limits. So once everyone is on the latest version this will never happen again. With that being said, The version of the Updater that is currently installed on your box is still pointing to the old server. So it will not update to the latest one until it can hit our old server and sees that there is a new version. So if you can wait a little while for the amount of hits on our old server to slow down your updater will eventually update to the new version of the Updater app. We do reccomend waiting until the Updater app updates itself as it is the easiest way to do it. Instructions But if you want to install the newest version immediately, we have provided instructions and links below. 1. Visit https://www.skystreamx.com/pages/downloads from your boxes browser 2. Click on SkystreamTV Updater App. Stay on the page for a few seconds. 3. Press the Home button on your remote 4. Click on All Apps or My Apps 5. Click on the App Installer App (Will be at the top of the apps) 6. Click on Local Disk 7. Let it load and then click on the Skystream Updater app. The app will be called v37-signed.apk 8. Click on Install and allow it to install 9. Follow the instructions in This Article   We are very sorry for this inconvenience

What is Real Debrid?

Mar 14, 2016 3 months ago No Comments
real debrid

What is Real Debrid? In this article we cover what Real Debrid is, how it works, how much it costs, and if it is worth the cost. What is Real Debrid? To understand how Real Debrid works we first have to learn how streaming in Kodi works. Most add-ons do not host any of the content that can be viewed in them. Most add-ons like Exodus, 1channel, SALTS, Icefilms, etc, act as search engines for streaming content. When you search for something, the add-on scrapes the sites where the file is actually hosted and displays a clickable link directly to where the file is hosted. Once Kodi connects to the link it begins to stream. Most of these hosted sites make money through advertising views and monthly subscriptions. The links that you are clicking on in almost every Kodi addon is in the host sites free section. Most of these sites limit the size of the files in the free section (Mainly HD files over 1 Gb.) They also throttle the amount of data they give out in the free section. Long story short, there are two different sections to most of these host sites. This is where Real Debrid comes into play. If you were to buy a subscription for each host sites premium section the cost would get very high. Real Debrid gives you access to many host sites premium section for one cost. We will cover the cost for Real Debrid later in the article. How does Real Debrid work in Kodi? Real Debrid works by allowing add-ons like Exodus, SALTS, 1Channel, Velocity, and Release Hub to scrape the premium section of many host sites and displaying the premium links in the add-on. Some add-ons display the Real Debrid links in different colors (Salts), Some display them by just showing saying Real Debrid at the beginning of the link (Exodus), and some add RD in the link (Velocity.) At the end of the day Real Debrid give addons that are compatible with it the ability to provide more links to the specific content you are trying to view. Many of these links are 1080P, 720P and some of them even have Dolby Digital 5.1. But HD is never guaranteed. How much does Real Debrid cost? Real Debrid offers 4 packages – 15 days, 30 days, 90 days and 180 days of access. 15 days – 3 Euros = $3.27* 30 days – 4 Euros = $4.36* 90 days – 9 Euros = $9.81* 180 days – 16 Euros = $17.44* * – All conversions for pricing fluctuate with the currency’s value and can change daily.   Is Real Debrid worth the cost? We have been using Real Debrid for quite some time and feel that it is a fantastic service. We like to think of it as the VIP section of Kodi. We find that the links are normally very reliable and occurrences of buffering are definitely reduced. But just like anything else, nothing is perfect. As…
