Quasar is a video addon for Kodi which streams movies and TV shows using BitTorrent, a peer-to-peer file sharing protocol. In this tutorial we are going to install Quasar on Kodi 17 Krypton with Estuary skin. Due to its P2P nature, Quasar uses both download and upload bandwidth while you are watching a video and it is not recommended for slow connections.
Let’s start by downloading the addon, go to the Quasar official site and download the latest version for your system, remember the folder where you downloaded the file, we’ll be using it later.
Quasar works together with a process called Quasar Daemon, we need to allow Kodi to receive instructions from other programs or you’ll get an HTTP error when searching for torrents.
We’ve installed Quasar on Kodi 17 but we still need some providers to serve us torrents or we won’t be able to stream content. Read our guide How to install Quasar Burst, Quasar Burst is a multi provider addon from the same developer as Quasar. Alternatively you can use Magnetic to manage your torrent providers, follow our guide Torrent streaming with Magnetic Kodi Addon to install magnetic providers.
