The Crew Kodi Add-on

The Crew is a popular Kodi add-on that allows you to stream movies and TV shows using several file hosting websites, it provides a great selection of free and premium sources.

This add-on comes with lots of great features like dedicated sections for sports, kids, radio, comedy, live TV, and more. The Crew also supports premium services like Real Debrid, Premiumize, and All Debrid.

The Crew is not yet compatible with Kodi 19 Matrix. If you’re using The Crew as your main add-on we recommend waiting a bit before upgrading Kodi or installing one of the suggested add-ons at the end of this guide.

Important: There’s a new add-on from team-crew called The Boys, it has many of the features of The Crew and it’s compatible with Kodi 19. Please note that you will need a Debrid account to use this add-on. Read How to install The Boys on Kodi for more information.

[Optional] Using Real Debrid with The Crew

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

In this example we’ll use Real Rebrid, a popular service to get unrestricted access to various file hosters and cached torrents for a very low price.

I. Select Tools on The Crew’s main menu. The Crew tools on Kodi

II. Press RESOLVEURL: SETTINGS. open Resoiveurl settings on The Crew tools menu

III. Select the Universal Resolver tab, scroll down to Real Debrid section and press (Re)Authorize My Account. authorize Real Debrid account with The Crew and ResolveURL

IV. Copy the authorization code. authorizing The Crew with Real Debrid

V. Use a web browser to visit https://real-debrid.com/device and enter the authorization code. (You must be logged in to your Real Debrid account). enter real debrid authorization code

VI. Set a name for this connection, we’ll use the-crew and press Set that name. use The Crew with Read Debrid

Once ResolveURL is authorized with Real Debrid you can close the browser and go back to Kodi. All the add-ons using ResolveURL as dependency will have access to premium sources.

VII. Use The Crew to select a movie or show, premium links will be shown in pink, cached torrents in purple and free sources in white. using Real Debrid with The Crew addon

The Crew uses cached torrents, this means that your device won’t connect directly to the p2p network, instead, it’ll use Real Debrid’s servers to fetch the files so you can stream them as a normal download.

The Crew Kodi addon FAQ

Do I need a Debrid account to use The Crew?

No. The Crew can use both free and premium sources. Keep in mind that you won’t find many high definition videos when using free sources.

Are cached torrents safe?

Yes. Debrid providers use their servers to download and store torrents so your IP address is never exposed to the P2P network. Cached torrents are only available with a Debrid account.

Do I need a VPN when using The Crew?


Free sources usually use HTTPS to encrypt traffic and are mostly safe. That being said, depending on your geographic location, you might feel safer using a VPN when using free sources to protect your privacy.
Debrid users, on the other hand, don’t need to use a VPN. All the data between your device and the Debrid server is encrypted.

I did everything you showed, Kodi Matrix 19, when I get to the “Install from zip file” i get a new screen, but there is no zip file showing

Leland Merrill

when using the link https://team-crew.github.io in Kodi addon, there are no files. Is the link dead?

Mahlet Bluford

I installed Fuck Indigo to disable Indigo which allowed me to install The Crew. When I clicked on The Crew, I got an error message telling me to “check the log for more information.” I don’t know what “the log” is, how to find and check it, or what to do once I find it. Suggestions please.

Crew Add-on was working fine although the only stream that works is the cartoonhd provider now yesterday movies won’t open as it’s not there when doing search of available providers.I have cleared cache but this does nothing..The providers list when looking for streams shows cartoonhd when doing the search but when the final list comes up it’s not there so I’m unable to get movie to play .In tools in the list of all the providers cartoohd is there switched on . What’s wrong I need this provider to watch movies.
