This page is a step-by-step guide on how to install the working Seren addon on Kodi, how to integrate Seren with a Real-Debrid account, and how to install a provider package to Seren.

I’ll demonstrate the installation on Windows PC, with Kodi Leia 18.6. This installation guide applies to Amazon Firestick, Fire TV, Android & IOS, Mac, Android TV, Android Boxes, etc. as well.

What is Kodi?

Kodi is a free and open-source media player software application developed by the XBMC Foundation. Kodi features a sleek option buttons layout, easy to navigate GUI (Graphical User Interface), wide scope of video format supported, and smooth video playback performance and the specialty in serving as a media library for Kodi users to manage their media collection. The best part of Kodi is that the numerous versatile Kodi addons that capture online media streams, to provide users with gorgeous audiovisual content without cost.

What are Kodi Addons? Why Do I Need Addons for Kodi?

For those who don’t know, the official Kodi version doesn’t provide any content whatsoever. Unofficial Kodi versions, however, are not recommended to use since they might bring you malware and other risks. To explore the full potential of Kodi on the official version, installing addons for Kodi is an essential process. Kodi addons will pull media resources from network streams to create a free connection between Kodi and online media resources, thus we Kodi users get to enjoy free movies, live TV, live sports, TV shows, etc. without cost.

What are Kodi Repositories?

Kodi repositories, Kodi repos in abbreviation, are containers like addon bundles that contain a set of filtered addons. By installing a Kodi repository instead of individual Addons, the Addons are automatically updated when a new version is released. Kodi repositories come in the form of ZIP files or a source URL, and adding addons to Kodi is often based on the repo’s installation.

What is Kodi Seren Addon?

Seren KodiSeren Kodi

Seren is one of the best movies & TV shows addon for Kodi in 2020. Seren features continuous episodes playback, preemptive scrapping of sources, and is tightly interwoven with Trakt so as to serve media contents in the best quality. With Seren’s detailed categories and precise search function, users can easily access the exact movie they want within a minute.

Moreover, unlike other Kodi addons which are generally built for a single service use, Seren seems a cut above. Seren is a multi-source addon works with the added ability to install custom provider modules, allowing users to connect to multiple online/offline services at once for their viewing with a single click.

Please note that Seren addon requires the integration of a premium debrid account and the installation of provider package to play items, which is very similar to Gaia addon. You can scroll down to the second tutorial to learn more.
