How To Install Stremio & Setup Anonymously on Firestick/Android (2022)

This tutorial will show you How to Install and Setup Stremio on a Firestick, Fire TV, Android TV Box, phone, or tablet.

Stremio is a free media center application that works very similarly to Kodi and Plex.

This app is receiving praise from the streaming community and rightfully so because it works very well.

Just like Kodi, we can install 3rd party addons that allow for free streaming of on-demand movies, TV shows, live TV, and much more.

For these reasons and more, we have included Stremio within our Best APKs list.

While there are many similarities, this streaming application is different than Kodi in one major area.

Most of the addons available through Stremio rely on BitTorrent protocol which is a file-sharing technology that displays the IP address of its users.

Warning! Protect Yourself With IPVanish VPN

Most cord-cutters use a IPVanish VPN and rightfully so.

The free streaming applications, addons, and IPTV services that you use are usually hosted on insecure servers.

Without a IPVanish, your IP Address is being logged.

Your IP Address points back to your location and identity which compromises both your privacy and security.

Your current identifying IP Address is 156.34.38.221

When you use IPVanish, your real IP address will be converted into an anonymous new one.

IPVanish VPN will provide you with an anonymous connection to the Internet.

This will prevent your Internet Service Provider, app/addon developers, government agencies, and any 3rd party from logging what you’re accessing online.

The most popular VPN among cord-cutters is IPVanish due to their blazing fast speeds and zero log policy.

It’s important to use a VPN that is fast since we are streaming large HD files. Its also crucial to find one that keeps no logs of what their subscribers access while online.

Setting up IPVanish VPN on your streaming device is simple!

Step 1 Register for an IPVanish VPN account by clicking the link below.

Step 2 – From the home screen hover over Find.

For those of you using Android TV devices, you can easily install the IPVanish app directly through Google Play Store.

Step 3 – Scroll down and click Search.

Step 4 – Type in “Ipvanish” and click the first option.

Step 5 – Click the IPVanish VPN app.

Step 6 – Click Download.

Step 7 – Once the IPVanish app installs, click Open.

Step 8 – Enter your IPVanish account information and click Log In.

You will get your username and password when you register for an account.

Step 9 – Click Connect.

Step 10 – Click OK.

Step 11 – Success! Your identifying IP Address has changed and you are now anonymous.

Click the Home Button on your remote and the VPN will remain running in the background.

Congratulations! You are now protected by IPVanish which means everything that you stream or access through your Firestick or Android TV Box is hidden from the rest of the world.

If you ever need to stop the VPN service, simply re-launch the application and click the DISCONNECT button.

You can now setup IPVanish VPN on all of your other Internet-connected devices. You can use IPVanish on unlimited devices!

Stremio & BitTorrent Technology

As of now, the best addons available within Stremio are based on BitTorrent technology.

This is completely different than streaming from apps such as Cinema HD or the most popular Kodi Addons.

When streaming a media file through BitTorrent, we are also sharing the same file with others which means our IP Address is being publicly broadcast.

IP Addresses are easily identified for those who are sharing through BitTorrent protocol.

If a person streams media that is copyright protected through BitTorrent without a VPN, trouble usually follows.

You may receive a threatening letter from your ISP or from a watchdog group that the Motion Picture Association hires to monitor the popular BitTorrent trackers.

Even though I’m streaming public domain movies and TV shows, I still protect myself with a VPN as I don’t want my IP address floating around these trackers.

When streaming media files through BitTorrent your IP Address is made public.  If you access copyrighted media through this technology without using a VPN this could lead to ISP termination or legal problems.  You have been warned.

This process also applies to those using Android devices such as the NVIDIA SHIELD, MECOOL Boxes, Chromecast, Android TV Boxes, phones, tablets, and any Streaming Device.

Stremio Setup

With the Stremio app installed we must now set up the app for use. The guide below will show two ways to use the Stremio app.

In the first method, we will install a torrent add-on for streaming Movies and TV Shows.

The second method will show the same torrent add-on but this time we will integrate Real-Debrid into the addon for an improved selection of streaming links.

However, before using the app we must first connect to a VPN to ensure safe streaming.

Even though I am streaming a free public domain movie in this example, I still don’t want my IP address floating around the BitTorrent trackers and my VPN takes care of this problem.

Installing IPVanish VPN is Simple

If you are using an Amazon Firestick or any Fire TV device, you can follow our VPN on Firestick/Fire TV tutorial.

Register for an account with IPVanish with this Discount Link.

Install the IPVanish VPN app by searching Amazon or Google Play App Store on your streaming device.

Open the app and enter your IPVanish VPN Username and Password.  This will be emailed to you after registering for their service.

Click the Connect button.

You will now see that your IP address has been changed.  You are now anonymous.

Once a connection has been made on your streaming device, click your home button.  The VPN will remain running in the background.

The addon we will install is called Torrentio.

Unlike other Stremio Addons, we must use the Silk Browser to install Torrentio within Stremio.

Follow the steps below to install Torrentio on Stremio.

Install Torrentio Addon in Stremio (Without Real-Debrid)

In this guide, we will install Torrentio without real-debrid. Those who wish to integrate real-debrid within Torrentio will want to use follow screenshots for that guide below.

Launch Silk Browser (or other browser) on your streaming device and type torrentio.strem.fun and click Go.

Scroll down to the bottom and click Install.

This will now launch the Stremio App.

Click Not Now

Choose Manual Log In.

Select Guest Log In.

Click Install.

Click Install again.

Return to the main menu of the Stremio App.

Now we will test to see if the addon installation worked by finding a movie to play.

In this instance, we chose Night of the Living Dead which is considered one of the Best Public Domain Movies by TROYPOINT.

We can now see the torrent streams available from the Torrentio addon.

You will see a blue icon of a person in each available link.  This indicates how many people are currently sharing the media file and the higher number usually means better playback.

You will also notice which Torrent Website each of the links is served from.

If you are a Real-Debrid user, we can integrate an account within the Torrentio addon which will provide an extra layer of security due to the fact that the Torrents will be downloaded through the Real-Debrid servers.

Follow the guide below to set up Real-Debrid within Torrentio.

Install Torrentio with Real-Debrid on Stremio

IMPORTANT NOTE: Prior to integrating Real-Debrid, you must make sure your VPN is turned OFF to ensure authorization.

After your VPN is disabled, open the home screen of your device and choose settings.

1. From the settings of your device, select Applications

2. Click Manage Installed Applications

3. Find and select Stremio

4. Click Clear Data

5. Click Clear data again

6. Next, we must enable Real-Debrid for use within Torrentio. To do so, we must be log into Real-Debrid and generate an API code by visiting real-debrid.com/apitoken

This can be done on any Browser you choose. However, you will want to make sure the device you are using has the ability to copy the code.

7. Paste the code into Notepad or other note application

8. Return to your streaming device and launch your Browser application. Type in the following website and click Go: https://torrentio.strem.fun/

9. After the site has loaded, click the arrow next to Sorting.

10. Choose how you would like to sort the video files.  We like sorting by Seeders as this will show links at the top that are currently being shared by a larger number of people.

11. Scroll Down and choose Providers and select Real Debrid.

12. Select Real Debrid API Key and enter your API Code from earlier. Click Install.

13. This will prompt Stremio to open. Click Not Now.

14. Choose Manual Log In

15. Click Guest Login

16. You will then be prompted to install Torrentio. Click Install

17. Click install again

After the addon has been installed, we can now return the device home screen and connect to our VPN to ensure privacy.

That’s it! We can now check available links using the same movie as before. As you can see, there are numerous RD (real-debrid) links provided for streaming.

Ensure Your VPN is Active with VPNSafetyDot

Another useful application I recommend installing in conjunction with Stremio, is the VPNSafetyDot app.

VPNSafetyDot is a slick tool that enables an icon to appear in the upper right-hand corner of your screen when you are connected to a VPN.

With this app installed, users will always know when their connection is safe via VPN. You will also have the option to change icon transparency and more.

This is especially important when using applications that use torrent streams like Stremio or Syncler.

This is a great tool in granting peace of mind whenever streaming on your device. For more information on VPNSafetyDot, refer to our guide below.

Integrate MX Player on Stremio

1. Install MX Player on your streaming device using URL: troypoint.com/mx in Downloader or follow the guide below:

2. Within Stremio choose a Movie or TV Show. For this example, we chose Night of the Living Dead

3. Choose a stream

4. When your Movie starts to play, hover over and select the icon seen in the image below

5. Wait a few seconds for MX Player to load

6. This message may appear due to switching media players. Choose whichever option you prefer

7. That’s it! You are now able to use MX Player within Stremio.

Note: The same process works for other external players such as VLC Media Player.

How to Add Media to Library

Stremio gives users the capability to add Movies and TV Shows to their Library. Follow our quick guide below on how to add content to your Library.

1. Within Stremio search for a Movie or TV Show.

2. Within the content overview screen, hover over and select the add to library icon in the upper right

3. An “Added to Library” message will appear.

4. To access the media within your library, return back to the Stremio home screen and select My Library.

5. Click Movies

6. That’s it! You have successfully added content to your Library within Stremio

7. To remove content from your Library, click on the content you want to remove and select “Remove from Library”

8. You will then notice a “Removed from Library” message appear.
