Magnetic is a program addon for Kodi that allows you to search torrents on popular sites by using a collection of providers. It is very modular and flexible, it can work independently using the Magnetizer action on the Context menu, this way you can search for torrents on other addons like Exodus or SALTS. It can also work as a torrent provider for Quasar and Torrenter V2, it even has an extension to manage subscriptions and library integration. In this tutorial we are going to install Magnetic on Kodi 17 Krypton with Estuary Skin.

If you are already using Quasar make sure you uninstall all the old Quasar MC’s Providers before installing Magnetic. Magnetic works great as a provider manager for Quasar but you might want to check out our guide How to install Quasar Burst, a new multi provider addon for Quasar.

Let’s start by downloading the Magnetic Repository, this contains the addons as well as a the providers we’ll use in this guide. You can download the repository zip file from its official source. Remember the downloaded file’s location on your drive, we’ll be using it in a moment.


1. Press the Add-ons tab on the Home Screen. addons tab on estuary skin with kodi 17

Magnetic runs as a service so you’ll need to restart Kodi whenever you change the providers’ configuration or when you update the providers.

There are several ways to use Magnetic:

– Independently by using the Magnetizer action in the Context Menu, this way you can search for torrents from other addons (like Exodus or SALTS). You’ll still need to install a torrent player, luckily Magnetic is compatible with YATP, KmediaTorrent, XBMCTorrent and of course, Quasar and Torrenter V2.

18. Calling Magnetizer from Exodus using the Context Menu. calling magnetic magnetizer from exodus

– You can also use Magnetic it as a provider for Quasar, make sure you’ve installed Magnetic Quasar Connector as shown on  step 11, if you need help installing Quasar follow our guide How to Install Quasar on Kodi 17 with Estuary Skin, keep in mind that you can not use Magnetic Quasar Connector and Quasar Burst together.

– Or you can use Magnetic as a provider for Torrenter V2, make sure you’ve installed Torrenter Searcher Magnetic as shown on step 11 and install Torrenter V2.

Magnetic providers are developed for Kodi 17 Krypton and some of them will return 0 results or an error when used with previous versions of Kodi due to open SSL certificate compatibility issues. If you are using Isengard or Jarvis try with different providers or upgrade to Krypton.
