Forked from the renowned yet discontinued Quasar addon, Elementum is a torrent finding and streaming engine that has potential to capture hundreds of thousands of quality streams on Kodi media player from multiple sources. It’s continuously updated and it turned out to be a better alternative to its predecessor. Elementum uses P2P (peer-to-peer) protocol (which is exactly the gist of torrenting) and BitTorrent to transfer and streams files. Given its infinite potential in streaming movies and TV shows from torrents, we’ve given Elementum a place in our Best Kodi Addons in 2021 roundups. On this list, you’ll find many addon recommendations for other types of media sources and fast and safe streaming experience as well.
To install Elementum addon on Kodi, you can either download the latest version of Elementum file from the Elementum official website to install addon from ZIP file, or as we recommend and will demonstrate in the following, to download and install Elementum from Gaia repository from which you can find the continuously updated Elementum addon also. For Gaia users, Gaia repository is at hand and installing Elementum from Gaia repository can avoid possible incompatibility issues between Elementum and Gaia and facilitate further integration. If you haven’t had Gaia addon installed on your Kodi, check out our former guide on how to install Gaia on Kodi Leia.

Once Elementum Burst is installed, you can properly use Elementum. To use Elementum addon, launch Elementum, select a favored movie or TV show from filters or ready-made lists, then you can fast download torrent from multiple torrent providers or use memorized torrent you’ve chosen before for quick streaming or downloading.

1. General Tab: Define a Download path for storing downloaded torrent file on your local storage.

3. To ensure your anonymity during torrent streaming, you should use Elementum with a VPN. To setup Elementum with your VPN for correct network connection:
Go to Proxy tab > Enable Proxy > Select the proxy type from the supported SOCKS5, SOCKS4, i2p or HTTP. Then enter your proxy host, port, login and password (if there is any) respectively.

Elementum supports the use of Trakt.tv playlist. Go to Trakt tab, under General section, you can authorize your Trakt account on Elementum with token and enable Scrobble if needed.
5. Advanced tab: Integrate your TheMovieDB account with Elementum using your TMDB API key under TheMovieDB section.
Elementum’s capability of delivering unlimited quality streams for movies and TV shows has made it a must-have addon for any Kodi cord-cutters especially those without debrid services like Real-Debrid, All Debrid, Premiumize, etc. But in that case, you must bear in mind that a decent VPN service could be necessary to keep yourself anonymous while streaming.
