QUASAR & KODI COMPLETE GUIDE
In this tutorial we are going to show you how to install Quasar on Kodi, 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. If your connection isn’t very fast or you don’t want to use torrents you should consider using SALTS, Exodus or Specto.
Let’s start by downloading the addon, go to Quasar’s official site and download the latest version for your hardware, remember the path of the downloaded file, we’ll be using it later.
Quasar works together with a process called Quasar Daemon, you must make sure that Kodi can accept instructions from other programs or you’ll get some HTTP errors when searching for torrents.
We finished installing Quasar but we still need some providers to serve us torrents or we wont 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.
You can alternatively use Magnetic to manage your torrent providers, follow our guide Torrent streaming with Magnetic Kodi Addon to install magnetic providers.
