How to install Tempest on Kodi [Feb 2021]

Tempest add-on allows you to stream movies and TV shows on Kodi. Based on Exodus, it has many features from its predecessor plus some extras like live TV and 1-click section. Tempest supports premium services like Real Debrid, All Debrid, and Premiumize.

Tempest is not yet ready for Kodi 19 Matrix but we hope it’ll be updated soon. If you’re using Tempest as your main add-on we recommend waiting a bit before upgrading or installing one of the suggested add-ons at the end of this guide.

Enabling Unknown sources will allow the installation of 3rd party add-ons that are not available in the official Kodi repository. Additionally, we recommend enabling Show notifications since most addons use them to display important information.

[Optional] Using Real Debrid with Tempest

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 Settings on Tempest’s main menu.

VIII. Use Tempest to select a movie or TV show, premium links will be shown in blue and free sources in white. Real Debrid sources on Tempest Kodi add-on

With this configuration, Tempest will use premium links from many file hosting websites. This usually is enough for most users but if you need even more sources, we’ll show you how to enable support for torrents via Real Debrid in the next section.

[Optional] Using torrents via Real Debrid with Tempest

Enabling torrent support might increase the number of results by using cached-torrents. To use this feature you’ll need a Debrid account. Tempest won’t connect directly to the p2p network while using cached-torrents, instead, it’ll use Read Debrid’s servers to fetch the files so you can stream them as a normal download.

IX. Select Settings on Tempest’s main menu.

Tempest is stuck on Remaining providers during search . I have removed the add-on and added it again and there’s clearly something wrong with it


disable the following providers ‘Filmxy, Soap2day1&2, Sockshares, Ssop2day, Swatchseries, Toonova, Vidnex then click on OK on the right hand side should now work properly without freezing

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
