Magnetic is a program addon for Kodi that enable searching torrents on popular sites by using a collection of providers. It is very modular, it can work as a torrent provider for Quasar and Torrenter V2 or it can work independently using the Magnetizer action on the Context Menu.
In this tutorial we are going to install Magnetic on Kodi 17 Krypton with Estuary Skin. If you already have Quasar installed with the traditional providers make sure to uninstall all the old Quasar MC’s Providers before installing Magnetic.
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 zip file from offshoregit. Remember the location of the downloaded file, we’ll be using it later.
Magnetic runs as a service so you’ll need to restart Kodi whenever you make changes to the providers’ configuration or update the providers so the changes can take effect.
You can use Magnetic on several ways:
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.
As a provider for Torrenter V2, make sure you’ve installed Torrenter Searcher Magnetic as shown on step 11 and install Torrenter V2.
Or Independently by using the Magnetizer action in the Context Menu, you can search for torrents on 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.
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.
