[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.

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.

    Kodi has just updated to 19, and all my addons are usable. When I try your steps everything goes fine. When installing from repository I don’t see the folder video ads ons. I don’t see the add ons anywhere. Can anybody help me?

      Hi! Tempest is not compatible with Kodi 19 yet. Kodi has moved from Python 2 to Python 3 with this update and that broke a lot of addons. I suggest you try The Oath, an exodus fork that’s already updated and working on Kodi 19.
