Step-by-Step Guide to Install Konfusion Kodi Build
Before installing any third party Kodi build, it‘s highly recommended to start with a fresh install of Kodi 19 Matrix. This helps avoid any conflicts with old addons or settings.
Here are quick guides for resetting Kodi back to factory default settings:
Once you have a fresh start, follow these steps to install Konfusion:
Launch Kodi on your Firestick, Android, PC or other device.
Click on the gear icon in the top left corner to open Settings.
Select "System Settings" from the vertical menu bar.
Scroll down to "Add-ons" and enable "Unknown Sources". This allows you to install addons from outside repositories.
You may see a scary warning message from Kodi about unknown addons having access to personal data on your device. This is good to be aware of! We‘ll talk more about privacy considerations later in this guide. For now, click "Yes" to continue.
Go back to the main System Settings menu and this time select "File Manager".
Click "Add Source" to add the Konfusion repository.
With highlighted, enter the following URL exactly:
In the bottom box name this source anything you want, such as "Konfusion". Then click OK.
Now we need to actually install the repository from the source we just added:
Go back to the Kodi home screen and open Settings again.
This time, choose "Add-ons" from the vertical menu bar.
Select "Install from zip file".
A list will populate with different source options. Choose the one you named earlier such as "Konfusion".
Select the "repository.ghettomatrix-1.1.1.zip" file from the list. This will install the required Konfusion repository.
Wait a few seconds until you see the "Ghetto Astronaut Matrix Add-on installed" notification pop up.
Now we can install the build itself:
Go back to Add-ons and this time select "Install from repository" rather than zip file.
Select the "Ghetto Astronaut Matrix Repo" repository.
Open the "Program addons" folder.
Find and select the "Ghetto Astronaut Wizard" addon. Install it.
After the "Addon installed" confirmation, go back to the Kodi home screen.
Hover over Add-ons and launch the "Ghetto Astronaut Wizard" addon we just installed.
Click on "Builds" in the menu.
Finally, select the "Konfusion" build from the list and click Install.
Confirm once more when prompted. The build will now download and install automatically. This takes 2-3 minutes.
When complete, hit OK to close out the build installer.
Fully exit Kodi and relaunch it. The Konfusion Kodi Build will load up ready to use!
That covers the full installation process from start to finish. While it involves several steps, once you get the basic workflow it is quite straightforward.
Here are some troubleshooting tips in case you run into any snags:
Double check that any URL or file names you enter match exactly
If you get an error that the repository can‘t be found, try re-entering the source URL
Make sure Unknown Sources is enabled in Settings before installing any third party addons
If konfusion won‘t install, try rebooting your device and starting over
A slow internet connection may cause issues downloading the build – use ethernet if possible
And with that you are ready to dive in and start using the excellent Konfusion Kodi Build!
Konfusion Kodi Build Features and Addons
Now that you have Konfusion installed, let‘s take a tour of everything this build offers.
The Konfusion interface is intuitive and divided neatly into content categories like Movies, TV Shows, Live TV, Sports, Kids, Music and more. This makes finding the content you want quick and easy.
Main menu contains categories like Movies, TV Shows, Live TV, Sports, Music, Kids, Fitness and more
Settings menu enables you to tweak options for the build and integrated addons
"One Click" submenu provides quick access to popular movies and shows
Search enables you to directly search for specific titles
Key addons included:
Some of the best addons integrated in Konfusion include:
The Crew – Extremely popular addon with a huge catalog of movies, shows, sports and more.
Ezra – Focusing on movies and TV shows, Ezra fetches high quality streams from debrid services.
Ghost – Another newer addon with great scrapers to find tons of high quality, well-encoded streams.
Numbers – Great for live sports, Numbers integrates multiple sports addons into one.
Tempest – Multi-source addon for movies and shows perfect for integrating Real-Debrid.
Venom – Long-time favorite for on-demand movies and TV shows. Typically finds tons of high quality streams.
There are too many to list them all, but suffice to say Konfusion packages up some of the best video addons available in 2022 all in one build.
Advanced users may also want to add additional video addons not included by default in Konfusion, such as Seren or Ezra. The process is the same as you followed above to add the base Konfusion repository and addons.
The benefit of a build like Konfusion is everything works right out of the box with no configuring needed. But you can always add to it by installing additional addons down the road.
One of the key features that makes Konfusion stand out is that it has full support for premium streaming service Real-Debrid integrated right into its settings.
Real-Debrid takes your streaming to the next level by providing fast access to cached torrents in original quality, including 1080p, 4K, and high bitrate audio.
The process to integrate Real-Debrid is simple:
Sign up for a Real-Debrid account here: www.real-debrid.com
Choose a premium plan starting at just $4.99 per month. They frequently run promotions.
From the Real-Debrid website, copy your unique code/PIN.
In Kodi, open the Konfusion build settings.
Paste your code into the Real-Debrid section.
That‘s it! Real-Debrid will now be enabled and power your streams across all compatible addons like The Crew and Ezra.
We highly recommend using Real-Debrid with the Konfusion build to get the highest quality streams possible with minimal buffering. Well worth the small monthly investment!
How Does Konfusion Compare to Other Top Builds?
Konfusion has quickly become one of the most popular Kodi builds available in 2022. But seasoned Kodi users may be wondering – how does it stack up against some other long-time favorite builds?
Here is a brief comparison of key details between Konfusion and builds like The Crew, Ezra, and Xanax:
|Build||Key Features||Primary Content Focus||Best For|
|Konfusion||Real-Debrid and Trakt integration out of the box. Tons of quality addons pre-configured. Intuitive category-focused menus.||Movies, TV shows||Beginner to intermediate users|
|The Crew||One of the largest catalogs of TV/movies. Very regular updates and maintenance. Lite and Full versions available.||Movies, TV||Beginners|
|Ezra||Prioritizes finding high bitrate sources from debrid services. Premier movie and TV addon when paired with Real-Debrid.||Movies, TV||Intermediate to expert users|
|Xanax||Heavily focused on live sports from around the globe. Integrates major sports-focused addons like The Loop, Rising Tides into one interface.||Sports||Sports fans|
As you can see, Konfusion nicely balances ease of use through its intuitive interface and categorized menus with advanced features like baked-in Real-Debrid integration. This makes it a great option for those transitioning from beginner to intermediate Kodi user who wants robust functionality without a steep learning curve.
More experienced users may prefer even more control over the exact addons used, which is where a build like Ezra shines. But Konfusion strikes an excellent balance, providing a lot of power right out of the box.
No single build can be all things to all people. Try out Konfusion for yourself along with some alternatives like The Crew or Xanax. See which interface and combination of features fits your needs and preferences best.
Legal and Privacy Considerations
Now that we‘ve covered all the exciting features of the Konfusion Kodi build, it‘s responsible to also have an open discussion about some of the legal considerations involved when streaming free movies, TV shows and other content online.
While Kodi itself is perfectly legal, there is controversy and debate around some third party addons/builds that use Kodi to stream copyrighted content without authorization from rights holders.
When you install an unknown third party addon or build, Kodi does warn that you are giving software from unverified sources access to data stored on your device. Sharing personal information over the internet always carries some level of risk.
However, the bigger legal grey area concerns media streaming itself:
The addons and builds preinstalled in Konfusion may provide access to pirated movies, shows and sports broadcasts. Accessing pirated content is generally illegal.
That said, builds like Konfusion themselves exist in a legal grey area not yet directly addressed by courts. The build itself is just software – it‘s how you ultimately use it that matters.
There are certainly legal ways to use Kodi and its builds like accessing free podcasts, YouTube videos, or content in the public domain.
So in summary, using Kodi itself is perfectly legal. But utilizing third-party builds specifically to access copyrighted media could violate laws like the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). There is ongoing debate around enforcement.
We recommend exercising good judgment when streaming, and above all – protecting your privacy with a good VPN.
Protect Your Privacy with a VPN
Since third-party Kodi builds exist in a legal grey area, we always recommend using a VPN (Virtual Private Network) to keep your streaming activities private and anonymous.
A VPN like IPVanish will encrypt all your Kodi traffic and assign you a new IP address different than your true one. This prevents your ISP or any outside entity from monitoring what you stream through Kodi.
Some key benefits for Kodi users:
Encrypts and anonymizes your connection so no one can see what you stream
Allows accessing region-restricted content
Improves streaming speeds by routing traffic through uncongested pathways
Our recommendation is to signup with IPVanish. They provide apps for all major platforms making it easy to run on the same device as Kodi. A single account protects all your devices, so you can install on your router to cover your entire home.
Take advantage of this limited time offer to get a big discount on IPVanish service here.
You don‘t have to use IPVanish, but some sort of VPN is highly recommended whenever streaming free movies, shows, sports or other content through Kodi builds like Konfusion to keep your privacy protected.
Now that your device AND your privacy are covered, let‘s move on to maximizing performance.
Real-Debrid Setup Tips for Faster Streaming
One of the best aspects of the Konfusion Build is that it has Real-Debrid integration already built-in. As we covered earlier, pairing Real-Debrid with Kodi gives you streaming access to cached torrents in original quality.
Real-Debrid transforms your streaming experience:
No more buffering – RD‘s worldwide cached torrent network provides consistently fast speeds
Higher quality video including 1080p, 4K, HDR, and high bitrate audio
Greater link reliability since buffering and broken sources are minimized
But there are some additional steps you can take to optimize your Real-Debrid setup for maximum streaming speeds:
1. Enable Cached Torrents
By default, Real-Debrid will delete cached torrents after you stream them once. But you can optionally enable keeping torrents cached permanently for faster repeat playback.
To enable this, log into Real-Debrid and go to "Torrents" settings. Set Max Uses to 0 so torrents will be kept in cache indefinitely. Now re-watching shows and movies will be lightning fast!
2. Set Real-Debrid as Default Resolver
Make sure Real-Debrid is set as the default resolver in the Konfusion build addon settings. This ensures streams route through Real-Debrid when available.
3. Authenticate All Applicable Addons
Some addons like Seren allow independently linking with Real-Debrid. Take a few minutes to authenticate in any applicable addons within Konfusion for optimal integration.
4. Use Wired Connections When Possible
Since the Konfusion build grabs high bitrate streams, always use wired Ethernet rather than WiFi connections when available for top speeds. This is especially important if streaming 4K or doing multiple streams simultaneously.
Following the setup tips above will guarantee you are getting the absolute maximum streaming performance possible from the Konfusion build when combined with Real-Debrid!
Advanced Configuration Tweaks and Updates
Konfusion developer Sui maintains and updates the build regularly with the latest addons and new features. It will even automatically update itself periodically when launched through Kodi 19.
But advanced users can further optimize performance with some manual configuration tweaks:
Adjust cache sizes – increase the memory allocated to function cache and image cache for smoother play.
Enable hardware acceleration options like VAAPI or AMLogic specific acceleration if supported by your device.
Manually set worker counts for scraping and resolving to balance performance vs resource usage.
Enable "Adjust display refresh rate" in player settings for smoother playback, avoiding frame duplication.
Increase buffer size – boost the playback memory buffer so streams start instantly with no rebuffering.
Lower maximum streams for scraping sources to reduce duplicate streams.
And as mentioned previously, you can augment the default addons included in Konfusion by adding community favorites like Seren, Venom, Ezra and more down the road. The world of Kodi is highly flexible.
We hope this guide has given you a comprehensive overview of the new Konfusion Kodi Build and how to get the most from it! Let us know if have any other questions.
