Quasar Kodi 17 Estuary Featured Image

Quasar Kodi 17 Estuary Featured ImageQuasar is a video addon for Kodi that uses BitTorrent, a peer-to-peer file sharing protocol, to streams movies and TV shows in great video quality. Due to its P2P nature, Quasar uses both download and upload bandwidth while you are watching a video.  

Quasar hasn’t received updates in a while, 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 for more info.

Elementum looks promising, but is pretty useless because of the extremely slow download speeds. Sticking to Quasar because it works, and you can actually download stuff with it.
