Magicality is a new addon for Kodi based on Resistance which in turn is based on Exodus. Just like its predecessors, Magicality gets its sources from several file hosting websites. In addition to the traditional features like library integration, support and premium accounts, Magicality supports Lambda Scrapers, an external module with an extensive list of scrapers.


Magicality has been discontinued. These are our favorite add-ons for December 2018:
Exodus Redux:  New add-on based on Exodus, it uses Lambda Scrapers to get sources from file hosting websites.
Yoda: Based on Exodus, scrapes sources from file hosting websites.
Seren: New add-on written from scratch with very innovative features like playing next episodes automatically, requires Debrid and Trakt accounts.
Elementum: High quality videos using Torrents.
Masterani Redux: Subtitled and dubbed anime.
Plexus: Live sports using AceStream or SopCast.


In this tutorial we’re going to install Magicality on Kodi using its official source, let’s begin.

Enabling Unknown sources will allow installation of 3rd party addons that are not available in the official Kodi repository, we also recommend enabling Show notifications since most addons use them to display important information.

[Optional] Enable Lambda Scrapers on Magicality

Most video add-ons use scrapers to find video sources on several websites. Magicality has its own set of scrapers but it can also use Lambda Scrapers, an external module with an extensive list of scrapers for add-ons based on Exodus.

20. Click on Tools. opening magicality tools on Kodi

22. Select the Other Hosters tab and activate Lambda Scrapers Enabled. Press OK to continue. enable LambdaScrapers on Magicality


If you were using premium accounts before switching to LambdaScrapers you need to clear the cache and reauthorize your premium account.


[Optional] Using Magicality with Real Debrid

File hosters often limit file availability and bandwidth for free users, using  premium accounts gives you unrestricted access to several hosters and can greatly improve the speed, quality and quantity of available sources.

In this example we’ll use Real Debrid, a popular service to get access to various file hosters for a very low price.

I. Let’s authorize our Real Debrid account on ResolveURL, Press Tools.  opening magicality tools on Kodi
