Allowing 3rd party add-ons on Kodi

1. Press the cog icon near the top left corner of the screen to open the Settings menu.
2. Select System.
3. Make sure the Add-ons tab is selected and enable Unknown sources and Show notifications.
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.
Adding Tempest source to Kodi
Let’s add a link to the official Tempest source on GitHub, this will allow us to download the repository zip file on Kodi.
4. Go back to the Settings menu and select File Manager.
5. Press Add Source.
6. Enter https://tempest0580.github.io/ on the top box and tempest on the bottom one. Press OK to add the source.

The repository is responsible for installing and updating the add-on, let’s use the new source to download the repository.
7. Go back to the Settings menu and this time select Add-ons.
8. Click on Install from zip file.
9. Now select tempest.
10. Click on repository.tempest-x.x.x.zip to download and install the repository.
Install Tempest add-on on Kodi

11. Select Install from Repository.
12. Click Tempest Repo.
13. Select Video add-ons.
14. Select Tempest.
15. Press the Install button.
16. You’ll see a list of dependencies to be installed with the add-on. Press OK to continue and wait for the process to finish.

18. All done! Use the menu to select movies or TV shows.
[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.
II. Press General.
III. Make sure the Debrid Providers tab is selected and press Enable All Debrid Providers.
IV. Now select the Accounts tab and press Resolveurl Settings.
V. Select the Universal Resolver tab, scroll down to the Real Debrid section and press (Re)Authorize My Account.
VI. Copy the authorization code.
VII. 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).
VIII. Set a name for this connection, we’ll use Tempest and press Set that name.
Now that you’ve authorized ResolveURL with Real Debrid you can close the browser and go back to Kodi. All the add-ons using ResolveURL such as Tempest, The Crew, Venom, Scrubs V2 and others will have access to premium sources.
IX. Use Tempest to select a movie or TV show, premium links will be shown in blue and free sources in white.
With this configuration, Tempest will use premium links from several file hosting websites, this is usually 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
It’s possible to use Tempest with torrents via Real Debrid. Enabling torrent support can increase the number of results. Please note that Tempest won’t directly connect to the p2p network, instead, it’ll use Read Debrid’s servers to fetch the files so you can stream them as a normal download.
X. Select Settings on Tempest’s main menu.
XI. Press General.
XII. Select the Torrent Support tab and activate Enable Torrent Scrapping.
XIII. Scroll down and select Enable All Torrent Providers.
XIX. Press OK.
Keep in mind that if you select a torrent with few seeds/peers, it might take some time for Real Debrid download the file and make it available for you to stream. It’s not very common but it might happen from time to time.
XX. Use Tempest to select a movie or TV show, torrent links will be shown in cyan and free sources in white.
