Kodi Quasar Burst featured image

Quasar Burst is responsible for searching torrents on several websites so they can be played by Quasar on Kodi. Usually, it is automatically along with Quasar but sometimes the installation process might fail.

In this guide, we are going to manually install Quasar Burst on Kodi. If you haven’t installed Quasar yet please read How to install Quasar on Kodi first, and come back here when you’re ready. Follow these steps only if the automatic installation fails.

Quasar hasn’t received updates in a while, it still works but we recommend using Elementum. Elementum is a fork of Quasar, it uses a new torrent engine with extended features like FAT32 support or streaming directly to RAM. Please read How to install Elementum on Kodi or How to install Elementum Burst for more info.

limit the number of BitTorrent connections to 20 in your quasar settings.

Please don’t use Wifi with a pi in this use case

which pi?


I found on a forum somewhere if you set peer limit to 20, wifi works

I tried that and it worked and my pi stopped crashing over wifi


I have a error “unsupported format character” when quasar searh for providers
Can someone help me?
