Tutorial How to Install VPN for OpenELEC on Kodi


As an OpenELEC user you may have tried one of the convoluted methods involved in setting up a VPN on your OpenELEC device. This new add-on from MetalKettle means you now have the easiest possible method of setting up your VPN.

This add-on is available through MK’s repo so you can grab it from the program add-ons section. If you don’t have his repo installed – you probably do – then use the guide below to install the repo and add-on.

Setup is very easy. MK has said he will be working on this and will hopefully get the other providers – Vyper & IPVanish – working as well.

So if you are a PIA and OpenELEC user then this is definitely an add-on for you to install.

To Install:

  • Open Kodi
  • Select SYSTEM > File Manager

  • Select Add Source

  • Select None

  • Type the following EXACTLY http://fusion.tvaddons.ag and select Done
