You’ll need a TMDB API key to use Elysium, it’s free, it only takes a couple of minutes and you can use your key with other addons too. The guys at noobsandnerds have a fantastic guide on how to create and add your own TMDB API to Elysium.

You can add shows and movies to the Internal Watchlist using Add to Watchlist on the Context Menu. To access the watchlist use My Elysium on the main menu. Elysium also has a very useful In Progress database to keep track of the episodes and movies you are watching.

There are 2 new views to display sources, Dialog+ and Real Time, you can change the view on Tools > SETTINGS: Playback > Default Action. Dialog+ view is selected by default, if you want Elysium to show sources in a more traditional way choose the Directory view.

If you want to use subtitles with your videos read our guide How to enable subtitles on Kodi.

Ugh. I have followed the same instructions from 3 different people. I get it installed no problem. Open the add-on, select TV (step 17) and then select “populars” but…. nothing! I can scroll through all the menus and sub-menus…. Nothing loads up. No TV show titles, no movie titles… It’s driving me mad!
