Are you looking for a simple way to stream virtually any movie or TV show for free? If so, you need to get the Aliunde Kodi addon.
With support for Kodi 19 Matrix, this versatile 3rd party addon opens up a world of on-demand entertainment.
In this detailed guide, I‘ll show you how to install Aliunde on your Firestick, Fire TV, Android box, or other Kodi device. Then we‘ll explore all of its features so you can get the most out of it.
Let‘s dive in!
Is It Safe and Legal to Install and Use Aliunde?
Any time you install an "unofficial" Kodi addon from outside the standard repository, it raises questions around safety and legality.
Let‘s tackle these concerns upfront before installing anything:
Is the Aliunde addon itself safe?
According to Kodi developers, third party addons do pose potential security risks. That said, Aliunde has been around for years with no reports of malware or other threats.
Scanning the repository URL on VirusTotal confirms there are no detected issues:
So all signs point to the addon and repository being safe from a technical perspective. But as always, proceed at your own discretion.
What about legality of the content?
Here‘s where things get tricky…
The addon itself is perfectly legal to download and use. However, some of the movies, shows, and live streams it provides access to may infringe copyrights.
Kodi makes this clear in their unknown sources warning:
Accessing pirated streams could potentially get you in legal trouble depending on your local laws. You can avoid this by:
- Only streaming 100% legal public domain media
- Using a VPN to download/stream anonymously
- Accessing content privately through Usenet indexers or torrents
While the Aliunde addon links to plenty of pirated material, exercise caution. You are responsible for what you watch, not the addon itself.
Okay, now that we‘ve covered the crucial safety and legal aspects, let‘s move on to installing and using this versatile addon!

We‘ve now added the repo that contains the addon.

Is Aliunde Legal? And How to Use Safely?
Earlier I briefly covered the legal aspects of third party Kodi addons like Aliunde. Let‘s explore this complicated topic more in depth.
There are a few key considerations when it comes to legality:
Is the Aliunde addon itself illegal?
No. The addon is essentially an interface that links out to streams hosted elsewhere. The developer has complied with all of Kodi‘s development guidelines.
Having and using the addon is perfectly legal according to Kodi.
What about the copyright of content it links to?
This is where things get murky. Aliunde provides access to a mix of:
- Legal public domain media
- Licensed content
- Potentially pirated streams
Accessing pirated material could be considered copyright infringement.
According to Kodi legal guidelines, addons are expected to properly license any copyrighted content linked.
If they don‘t, then supplying access could violate distribution laws.
So who‘s liable – the end user or the addon developer?
Legal experts agree that ultimately, the responsibility lies with the end user.
If you access illegal streams, you are accountable for copyright infringement, not the addon itself.
Think of it like a search engine – it provides links but doesn‘t host infringing content on its servers. The courts have ruled search engines aren‘t liable for pirated material in search results.
How can you use Aliunde safely and legally?
- Use good judgement and avoid infringing streams
- Only watch legal public domain material
- Leverage a VPN to download/stream anonymously
- Consider private Usenet or torrent sources instead
- Remove the addon if you have concerns over legality
While the definiton of what constitutes an "illegal stream" is still up for debate, being prudent will keep you out of trouble.
A good VPN is highly recommended when using addons like Aliunde. Let‘s talk about how a VPN enhances privacy, security, and streaming performance.
Why Use a VPN with Aliunde and Kodi?
Using a premium VPN while streaming with Kodi brings several benefits:
1. Hide your streaming activity – Your ISP can monitor and log all traffic on their network, including any potentially infringing streams. A VPN encrypts all data so your ISP has no visibility into what you access.
2. Prevent bandwidth throttling – ISPs often throttle traffic like video streaming. A VPN prevents this by hiding the type of traffic from your ISP.
3. Improve speeds – VPN servers are optimized for streaming with fast speeds and unlimited bandwidth. This results in better performance compared to residential ISP networks.
4. Access region-restricted content – Some content may be geo-blocked in your country. A VPN lets you route through servers around the world to bypass regional blocks.
5. Added layer of privacy – VPN encryption keeps your viewing activity, downloads, and personal data safe from prying eyes. Important when accessing questionable streams.
6. Avoid legal problems – In case any streams are illegal, a VPN provides crucial anonymity so the activity can‘t be traced back to you.
Based on the VPN testing I‘ve done, I recommend Surfshark or NordVPN for privacy and speed.
Now let‘s get into how Real-Debrid improves the streaming experience.
How Real-Debrid Enhances Aliunde Streams
Integrating Real-Debrid unlocks higher quality, buffer-free streams in Aliunde. But how does it work exactly?
Real-Debrid acts as a downloader and cache for torrent files and streams.
The key advantages are:
Speed – Real-Debrid downloads torrents on fast servers not bottlenecked by residential bandwidth limits. This also improves stream buffering.
Quality – Torrents provide the best media quality. Real-Debrid‘s cached torrent links retain this pristine quality.
Reliability – Streaming from RD‘s cached files is much more reliable than hunting for obscure working links.
No VPN needed – Downloads are handled entirely by Real-Debrid so you don‘t need to protect your IP.
From a technical standpoint, when you play a movie in Aliunde, it now searches Real-Debrid‘s database of cached torrents in addition to other hosters. If a cached torrent is found, it‘s streamed directly from Real-Debrid‘s blazing fast servers.
The result is an instant 4K or 1080p stream that starts instantly with no lag or choppiness. Real-Debrid integration vastly improves the viewing experience.
The $3/month subscription is well worth it!
Now let‘s cover some common questions about getting the most out of the Aliunde addon.
Aliunde Kodi Addon FAQ
Here are answers to some frequently asked questions:
Does Aliunde work on all Kodi devices?
Yes! I tested on a Firestick but installation is the same across platforms like Fire TV, Android boxes, PCs, tablets, phones, etc.
Can I customize which addons install with Aliunde?
Yes, before clicking install you can uncheck specific addons you don‘t want. This will exclude them.
Why am I getting a "Stream Unavailable" error?
This usually means the source link went dead. Try clearing cache and providers in ResolveURL to fetch new links.

Absolutely! Real-Debrid is great but you can authorize and use Premiumize, EasyNews or OffCloud in the exact same way.
What are the best legal free streaming apps?
I recommend these free ad-supported apps for 100% legal movies and shows:
