But here’s the twist: adding The Crew to Kodi is a bit different from the usual way you add other things. Don’t sweat it, though! I’m here to walk you through every step of the way. By the end of this, you’ll be a pro at installing The Crew on Kodi. Let’s dive in! 🌟
Installing the Kodi Crew Add-On
First things first, The Crew is this amazing add-on for Kodi that works with Kodi 19 Matrix and even older versions. It’s like a treasure trove where you can find movies, sports, and loads more. The best part? The Crew sorts everything into neat categories, making it super easy for you to find what you’re in the mood for.
And guess what? You can get The Crew on all sorts of devices, from your FireStick to Android TV boxes, and even on your phone!
Step 1: Enabling Downloads from Unknown Sources
Before we start our journey to install The Crew, we need to do a bit of setup with Kodi. By default, Kodi plays it safe and doesn’t let you add extra stuff from outside its official store. But no worries, I’ll show you how to change that:
- Open Kodi: Fire up Kodi on your device and look for the Settings menu. It’s the one with the gear icon – you can’t miss it!
- Dive into System Settings: Once you’re in Settings, find the option labeled System. It’s usually hanging out in the bottom right corner.
- Navigate to Add-ons: Scroll down a bit until you see Add-ons. That’s where the magic happens!
- Embrace the Unknown: On the right side of the screen, you’ll see an option for Unknown sources. Flip that switch to the On position.
- Confirm Your Choice: A message will pop up asking if you’re sure. Go ahead and click Yes to keep this setting.
Step 2: Downloading The Crew
Alright, now that we’ve made Kodi ready for new adventures, it’s time to actually download The Crew. Just follow these steps, and you’ll be all set:
- Back to Settings: Head back to the Settings menu in Kodi. It’s like our command center for this mission.
- Enter the File Manager: In the Settings, look for the File manager. That’s where we’ll start our download journey.
- Adding a New Source: Once you’re in the File Manager, click on Add source. This is like telling Kodi where to find The Crew.
- Choosing None: A new window will pop up. Here, you need to select the None option. It’s a bit like starting with a clean slate.
- Enter the Magic URL: Now, you’ll see a place to type in a URL. Carefully enter this magical line:
https://team-crew.github.io/– This is the secret path to The Crew.
- Name Your Source: Give this source a name you’ll remember. It can be anything like “CrewStuff” or “MyCrewSource”.
- Lock in Your Choice: Hit OK to confirm your choices. Boom! You’re done with this part.
Step 3: Setting Up The Crew’s Repository
We’re moving along nicely! After getting The Crew from its GitHub website, it’s time to set up its repository. Here’s what you need to do:
- Back to Settings (Again!): Yep, we’re heading back to the Settings menu.
- Add-on Time: This time, choose Add-ons from the menu.
- Install from Zip File: Click on Install from zip file. This is how we’ll add The Crew’s repository.
- Find Your Named Source: Remember the source name you chose earlier? Find it in the list.
- Open the ZIP File: There’ll be a ZIP file with the latest version. Open it and click OK.
- Installation and Patience: Wait a bit while The Crew’s repository installs. A notification will pop up when it’s done.
Step 4: Bringing The Crew to Life
Almost there! Now that the repository is in place, it’s time to install The Crew add-on itself:
- Return to Add-ons: Head back to the Add-ons section.
- Install from Repository: This time, select Install from repository.
- Choose The Crew: Find and select The Crew from the options.
- Video Add-ons Ahoy: Navigate to Video add-ons.

- Hit Install: Go to the bottom right corner and click on Install.
- Confirmation Time: Click OK to start the installation. Another notification will let you know when it’s all set.
- YouTube Setup? Nope: Kodi might ask about setting up YouTube. Choose No here.
- Enjoy The Crew: Once everything is done, The Crew is ready for action!
How to Use the Kodi Crew Add-On
Step 1: Be a Digital Ninja with ExpressVPN
Before you jump into watching awesome shows and movies, there’s a smart move to make: using a VPN, like ExpressVPN. Why? It’s like wearing a digital invisibility cloak! It keeps your online info hidden while you’re using Kodi and The Crew. Whether you’re on a FireStick, an Android phone, or a computer, there’s always a VPN for you.
Step 2: Dive into The Crew’s World
All set with your VPN? Great! Now, let’s get into using The Crew:
- Head to Add-ons: On Kodi’s menu, click on Add-ons.
- Video Add-ons, Here We Come: Choose Video add-ons.
- Select The Crew: Find and click on The Crew.
- Explore Categories: A window will open up with different categories. It’s like a library of cool stuff!
- Pick What to Watch: Choose a category or use the Search function to find something specific.
- Choose a Link: When you pick a movie or show, you’ll see some links. Try the first one to see if it works.
- Keep Watching: If the link works, awesome! Sit back and enjoy.
What If a Link Doesn’t Work?
No sweat if a link doesn’t work right away. It happens sometimes since lots of people might be watching the same thing. Here’s what to do:
- Go Back: Return to the main screen where the links are.
- Try Another Link: Pick a different link from the list.
- Rinse and Repeat: Keep trying until you find one that works with no buffering.
Remember, it might take a couple of tries to find a good link. Most of these free links are okay quality, up to 720P. Sometimes you might find 1080P, but those are like finding a four-leaf clover!
For the HD Lovers: Real-Debrid
Want to watch in super high quality, like 4K HD? That’s where Real-Debrid comes in. It’s a service where you can pay for premium links that hardly ever buffer. It’s like getting VIP access to your favorite shows and movies.
But hey, even if you stick with the free links, you’ll still find plenty to watch. It just might take a bit of link-hopping sometimes.
Why is the Kodi Crew add-on not working?
So, you’ve set everything up, but The Crew isn’t working? Don’t worry, it’s likely because of a sneaky add-on called Indigo. It’s like a roadblock stopping The Crew in its tracks. But we can fix that! Here’s how to kick Indigo out and get The Crew running smoothly:
- To the Add-ons Screen: First, head over to the Add-ons screen on Kodi.
- Find the Add-on Browser: Then, click on Add-on browser.
- Install from Repository: Choose Install from repository.
- Select The Crew: Now, find and select The Crew from the list.
- Program Add-ons, Here We Come: Go to the section named Program Add-ons.
- Time for Action: Look for an add-on called “F**k Indigo” and select it.
- Install and Wave Goodbye to Indigo: Click on Install to add this add-on. It’s specifically designed to remove Indigo.
Once you’ve installed this creatively named add-on, it will take care of Indigo for you. And the best part? You won’t have to worry about Indigo messing things up in the future.
