    Default Do I need a VPN?

    I'm struggling to stream anything on Kodi from various sources. I've got a Real Debrid account and my broadband is plenty fast enough. I find plenty of streams but they all buffer constantly. Would a VPN help the situation?

    Thanks

    Not sure. VPN would help if u literally cannot get streams. Due to their servers being blocked by an isp. Quality of them is just because the source is shite.

    Anything streamy that’s free will be shit. Might be time to sub up for an iptv provider and fuck kodi off.

    Depends what U want i guess.

    Don't bother with kodi
    There are so many APKs out there that do
    The job so much quicker and less hassle

    and now popcorn time is moving APKs into a newer direction torrents are a lot more robust and less prone to buffering, although you will defiantly need a VPN not only for that content but if you’re watching kodi without a VPN you’re asking for trouble from the likes of sly and virmin et all

    I live in a rural area and have had shocking broadband (less than 1mb) until this week. I've now got satellite broadband, which is literally my only option for decent speeds. I've been waiting years for decent speeds, so I've been out and bought a Nvidia shield and a Real Debrid account and I'm still struggling to watch anything!! Arrgghh!

    it doesn't matter what type of kodi box you get, shiit internet will always be shiit internet a VPN will slightly slow your broadband down as it has to be re-routed to the vpn supplier before it gets to you. and also the vpn software uses a lot of processing power, maybe its fine for a i3-i7 pc with 8 gig or more mem but when I use it on my H96 pro+ I'm getting a difference of around 30 meg download speed, the uploads is always at 20 meg. if I disable the vpn I get a download of around 72 meg.

    Sounds like a VPN will help but to be certain there are loads of VPN's that do a free trial from 24 hours to a week.
    Search in here someone recently posted a discount code to a VPN called Windscribe for I think free 60GB per month. Windscribe are shit but it will help answer your question.

    Try this
    get a free VPN from somewhere to play/test with
    get the popcorn time APK from my thread
    install and run it. if there are a lot of seeds to the film it should run pretty good, better than if you try it on kodi

    The apps just scrape the same places as kodi
