Ezra Kodi addon featured image

Ezra is a new Kodi add-on that allows us to stream movies and TV shows using premium sources, specially Easynews and Furk, but it can also be used with services like Real Debrid, Premiumize, and All Debrid.

Based on Fen, Ezra offers a nice user interface, fast menu navigation, and all the other great features from its predecessor. Like Trakt support, file downloads, and subtitles. It also has its own favorites list, a Discover section to create lists using filters, and a context menu with many useful options.

IMPORTANT: Ezra hasn’t been updated in a long time, it still works, but we recommend using another addon. Please take a look at our Best Kodi addons list for more information.

    Excellent! Thank you

    Ezra doesn’t seem to pull in any torrents, only hosters. Am I missing something? Ezra has some great features. I especially like that one can remove one item at a time from the searched list. It would be my first choice when using kodi if I can get torrent links.

  • 1 year ago

    I set up Ezra with RD, Premiumize and Easynews. I am not getting any Easynews streams. Does anybody have any suggestions?

  • 2 years ago

    For some reason whenever I’m watching a movie now (as Of July 20th 2022) it will just close the player and go back to the movie selection. Just gotta click on the movie and resume but it’s annoying when it happens every 20 minutes.

      Any help would be great!

  • 2 years ago

    Ezra tips mentions editing menus by “pressing context”. I can find no mention of context anywhere. Any help finding it would be appreciated.

    • 2 years ago

      Hi! Go to Ezra’s main menu long-press on the an item to open the context menu. You can also open the context menu using the C key.

    Tried trakt authorization but keep getting error authoriing message.

  • 2 years ago

    Hi. Any idea why in kodi 20 cant to open the addon. Install complete but addon can not open. I cant understand the error. In kodi 19 i dont have problem.

    • 2 years ago

      Version 20 is still in development and the current builds are unstable. Also, Ezra is on feature freeze stage, meaning it’s being maintained but they’re not adding features right now. I’d recommend staying with Kodi 19 for now.
