UPDATE: Gaia was recently caught having cryptocurrency mining malware in their add-on.  My advice is to stay away from Gaia and check out the top Kodi add-ons that won’t infect your device.

The Gaia Kodi add-on was a big “up & coming” streaming add-on when it first came out in Spring 2018.  Now, they’re on version 3.0 and have made a lot of changes and improvements.

Being a fork of the Bubbles add-on, the emphasis of Gaia is having an insane amount of bells & whistles.  This “next generation” Kodi add-on makes Exodus, Covenant and all of their forks look a bit primitive.

Gaia streams movies, shows, documentaries, and short film from a much wider variety of sources including hosters, usenet, and even torrents.  Gaia is optimized for premium services like Premiumize, OffCloud, Real-Debrid, EasyNews, and now their very own premium link scraper called Orion.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Since this add-on utilizes torrents, it is pretty much necessary for you to use a VPN, otherwise, it’s only a matter of time before you get a letter from your ISP (or worse).  To learn more, read my 4 Crucial Reasons Why Kodi Streamers Need a Kodi VPN.

How to Install the Gaia Repository

  • Go to Settings (cog icon) > File Manager

    https://repo.gaiakodi.com
  • Give it a name in the box below (name it Gaia)
  • Now, go to the Add-on Browser screen by clicking on Add-ons on the main menu and then selecting the open box icon at the top.
  • Go to Install from Zip File > Gaia > repository.gaia.zip

How to Install the Gaia Add-on From its Repository

How To Configure Gaia 3.0 for Kodi

If you already previously setup Gaia in a previous version, go to Gaia > Tools > System > Clean to start fresh, otherwise you’ll have issues.

For setting up Gaia for the best experience, use the Setup Wizard and choose Reaper’s settings.  That will set most settings for you, but guide you through some basic settings and also to connect your accounts like Trakt, Real-Debrid, Premiumize, Orion, etc.

Do the Provider Optimization.  It really helps.

Gaia 3.0 Settings & Recommendations

Here we will go over each and every option with the recommended settings.

Full disclosure, I didn’t write the below settings and recommendations write-up, but I found it in this Google doc linked from this Reddit thread.  Big thanks to the author, Reddit Reaper, for putting together this write-up for us.

Accounts Tab

(Need this setup first to enable other options)

  1. Artwork Section

    • Fanart – this uses media from Fanart.tv

      1. Recommendation: Leave disabled, not needed

  2. Informants Section

    • Trakt – Keep track of all your progress in shows and movies and make lists with all your favorite tv shows and movies in them

      1. Recommendation: Definitely ON

      2. Go to trakt.tv, register an account and make sure you are logged in on your computer’s browser or phone’s browser. Once done enable Trakt in Gaia and press Authentication

      3. You will get a window like this that will inform you to go to https://trakt.tv/activate with a token underneath the link. On windows it copies to clipboard, (I can’t confirm if it works on android or any other platforms that can run a browser. I recommend doing this part on another device like phone or pc/mac browser)

      4. Go to the website and either paste or type out the code given. You must be logged into your account to do this first, it should ask you for account details when going to that link if not logged in

      5. Now your Trakt account should be paired with Gaia

      6. I leave “Marked Watch” and “Notifications” on default settings but you can change them per your choosing. Self-Explanatory

    • IMDb – Never used it before so i don’t have a userID

    • TMDb – Not Needed

  3. Premium Section

    • Premiumize – This is only needed if you have a PM account, WHICH I STRONGLY RECOMMEND, but if you do, you do not enter your username and password here. I’ll explain below

      1. Make a premium account with premiumize.me and login

      2. Once done go to account on the top left corner

      3. Here you will see the required information which is Customer ID and PIN

      4. On this same page scroll down to bottom and enable SSL and Labs. Very Important!

      5. Click on show pin and copy the customer ID and PIN to the Gaia premiumize settings shown here

      6. Encryption: Enabled, default

      7. Request Method: DEFAULT,

      8. Automatic Removal: Default, enabled

      9. On Addon Launch: Default, none

      10. On Playback End: Default, last

      11. On Download Failure: Default, last

    • Offcloud – Never used them before but from the looks of the settings you get an API key you insert and i would also turn on instant streams and the rest default

    • RealDebrid – Enable if you have an account, and press authentication, follow instructions and leave other options default

    • All other Debrid (i.e. alldebrid, etc) accounts I don’t have so can’t walk you through those unfortunately

  4. Universal Providers Section

    • TorrentLeech – Access to torrents on TorrentLeech

      1. If you have it enable it and add your credentials. If not leave it Disabled

    • UsenetCrawler, NZBFinder, NZBndx, NZBgeek – Usenet providers

      1. I don’t have any usenet accounts and i can’t afford easynews so leave them all disabled

    • Alluc – Disabled as they’re gone now

    • Pron – Leave Disabled

General Tab

  1. Launch Section

    • Automatic Launch –  opens add-on on Kodi launch

      1. Recommendation: OFF

    • Splash Screen – Gaia icon on middle of screen when opening add-on

      1. Recommendation: None

    • Startup Sound – Sound on Add-on Open

      1. Recommendation: None

  • Language Section

    • Primary Language: Set to your primary language i.e.: English

      1. Secondary and Tertiary Languages are you choice, I have them set to none

  • Settings Section

    • Settings Cache: Cache the addon settings in memory. This drastically increases performance and reduces scaping time but can cause issues with certain devices and kodi versions.

      1. Recommendation: Depends on your device, for android devices that use SPMC, i say off. For PC’s i recommend on, if your settings keep corrupting turn it off

    • Automatic Backup: Automatic backup of Gaia Settings in case of corruption

      1. Recommendation: On

    • Count Limit: Max number of backups

      1. Recommendation: Default, 10, 3 if you have issues with Gaia resetting

  • Playback Section

    • Status Tracking – How to track watched status of your shows or movies

      1. Recommendation: Depends on how you want to use it, if it’s all one Trakt account for your house and you want to be able to tell what shows have been watched in your home, setting to Trakt would be ideal. If you have the same Trakt account for multiple different homes like friends and family, local would be best.

      2. If you have it only for yourself then Trakt would be the best option IMO

    • Progress Tracking – This tracks where you left off in a show or movie if you only watched it half way. Local: only specific to that device, Trakt: having stop point on all devices using that Trakt account

      1. Recommendation: Once again depends on your use case scenario, in my case I have it set to local.

    • Resume Playback – How you wish kodi to ask you to resume where you left off.

      1. Recommendation: Select because it asks you to either resume or restart

      2. Automatic will just automatically resume from where you left off

    • Playback Timeout: The max number of seconds to wait for playback to commence

      1. Recommendation: For slow internet or while using a VPN 60, otherwise in my experience, 30 secs is perfect.

    • Retry Playback: Sometimes kodi can’t connect for some reason, this will retry the valid link. I suspect this is also why links sometimes randomly start again but i could be wrong here.

      1. Recommendation: Off, if you have a bad connection, on continue with recommendations

        1. Retry Limit: Max times to retry a link

          1. Recommendation: 1

        2. Retry Delay: Number of seconds between retries

          1. Recommendation: 2

    1. VPN Section

      • VPN – This option is if you wish to use a vpn with Gaia

        1. I don’t use this option since I use premiumize. Premiumize downloads torrents to their servers and then if they’re already cached, TV shows or movies will stream directly from their servers. I find this to be ample protection for myself as it basically works just like any other video locker website.

        2. If you want more protection I recommend this option but I don’t have a need for it, your choice

        3. PM offers an included VPN with premium service

    2. Parental Controls Section

      • Parental Controls – Self-explanatory, restrictions for children

        1. Recommendation: OFF

    3. Statistics Section

      • Statistics Sharing – Usage and speed test statistics sent to the Gaia community anonymously

        1. Recommendation: On to help the Gaia dev make the add-on even better but if you wish not to share any details of your Gaia usage turn off

    4. Access Options

      • Access Code – Ignore not for us

Interface Tab

General Interface settings

  1. Theme Section

    • Skin Theme – Theme you want for Gaia, i leave on default but you can change it to your liking

    • Icon Theme – Icon themes for Gaia, leave default

      1. Icon Quality – Leave default

    • Background – Enables use of theme background of Gaia, if Disabled it uses Kodi Theme bg

    • Poster Type – The type of poster image you want to see, i prefer artwork over other options, your choice, i leave it default

    • Banner Type – The type of banner image you want to see, i prefer artwork over other options, your choice, i leave it default

  2. Appearance Section

    • Fanart Backdrops – Backgrounds that appear when you highlight any show or movie. I personally leave it disabled for browsing speed so i don’t get more slowed down by images downloading

  3. Language Section

    • Multiple Languages – The label to show for streams with multiple audio languages. Either show all languages available or the word Multi. If shows or movies have multiple audio tracks i strongly recommend setting Kodi to use your preferred language, in my case english

  4. Navigation Section

    • Stream List – The way links show up after scraping. I leave it default as directory. Dialog can be annoying as it goes away when you choose a link and if it’s bad you have to scrape again

    • Progress Dialog – The progress of Gaia scraping providers and checking for links. Foreground is default and shows you what quality links its getting while background is like a notification letting you know how it’s going.

  5. Stream Layout Section

    • Label color – Colors parts of a stream’s label, leave default

    • Stream Uploader – Shows uploader name in label of results, leave default

    • Stream Popularity – Shows stream popularity (from Orion) in label, leave default

    • Stream Age – Shows age in label of results, leave default

    • Stream Seeds – Show torrent seeds in label of results, leave default

    • Premium Info –

      1. Premiumize Info – The PM cost, daily limits, and current usage information. Enable if you have PM

      2. EasyNews Info – The EasyNews cost and current usage information. Enable if you have EasyNews

  6. Title Layout Section

    • Layout – This changed in one of Bubbles last updates before it forked to Gaia! Please change MOVIE, SHOW, DOCUMENTARY, & SHORT to title layout if not everything will be out of order in your trakt lists

  7. Menus Section

    • Pretty self-explanatory, shows the different sections in Gaia, disable what you don’t want to see, leave what you want enabled. I for instance disable favorites as i use trakt lists only

  8. Arrivals Section

    • This section determines what movies or shows come up when pressing movie or show arrivals. I prefer recently premiered for movies, and trakt calendar for show arrivals. Rest default

    • Options for how shows are viewed regarding season and episodes. All your preference

    • Flatten Seasons – Show all episodes from every season in one long list

    • Future Seasons – Shows future seasons and their air date (usually, if already announced)

    • Special Episodes – Special episodes like a pre-season episode 0

    • Date Sorting – how episodes are sorted, leave default

    • Air Information – Date Aired

    • Unwatched Count – How many episodes from that show that are not watched yet

    • Unwatched Limit – Limits the above counter to 99 so no text overflow occurs

  10. Favorites Sorting

    • Settings in how you would like to sort your favorites if you use them. This affects trakt list sorting as well

  11. Customize Colors

    • Customize your colors however you like!, i leave it as default

Scraping Tab

Here we will adjust settings for when it scrapes for links

  1. Providers Section

    • Provider Optimization – Tries to find the best provider timeout for your internet speed

      1. Recommendation: I don’t use it but try it out and see what you get. If you have a slow device like a firestick do not expect a low number

    • Provider Timeout – Time for providers like thepiratebay, alluc etc to try before timing out

      1. Recommendation: If you have decent device like a desktop computer, nvidia shield, etc with good internet at least above 25 mbps, then I recommend 15-30 secs max, I personally have it set to 45 with no issues

    • Page Limit – Limit the number of pages retrieved from the provider, to get all pages set to 0, but better not to do that. This feature can greatly improve scraping time

      1. Recommendation: 2

  2. Season Packs Section

    • Season Packs – this option can be great to have enabled for shows like the simpsons and family as many torrents will be whole packs with all the episodes. I have come across issues with this in the past where it chose the wrong file. A selection prompt is a feature that I hope will be added for season packs in the future.

      1. Recommendation: Enabled, but if you experience the wrong episode over and over I would turn it off or just play manual for that episode by pressing menu, play manual

  3. Alternative Titles Section

    • Alternative Titles – Helps with finding streams by using alternative titles for media especially for foreign languages

      1. Recommendation: Enabled

      2. Timeout: Default

    • Special Characters – Helps finding streams with weird characters in titles

      1. Recommendation: Enabled

  4. Debrid Cache Inspection Section

    • Debrid Cache Inspection – Checks to see if torrents are in the PM, RD, or Offcloud cache system

      1. Recommendation: Enabled

      3. Timeout: Default

  5. Failure Detection Section

    • Failure Detection – Automatically disables bad providers

      1. Recommendation: Disabled, if you enable use the following recommendations

      2. Stop Threshold: Default, 3

      3. Retry Delay: 2

  6. Preemptive Termination Section

    • Preemptive Termination – Stops scraping from PROVIDERS when links meet the required criteria

      1. Recommendation: Enable

      2. Minimum Streams: 5-10 (your choice, i think 5 is more than enough though)

      3. Stream Mode: Automatic or Manual (if you like to see the link list)

      4. Stream type: Premium or Direct

      5. Video Quality: (this is minimum not quality you want) HD720

      8. Audio Codec: Any

Providers Tab

Here we can control what providers we wish to use when scraping for links/streams

    • Custom Presets – Awesome feature that lets you change what providers you use on the fly for any show or movie by selecting the show or movie, go to the side menu, and use Play with Preset

      1. Create your own presets! Just setup the providers how you want, click a preset, press save and rename it to whatever you want

  2. General Providers Section

    • Orion – Enable if you have an orion account

      1. Recommendation: Enabled

      2. If using premiumize enable, if not disable

      3. If using RD enable, if not disable

      4. If using EasyNews enable, if not disable

  3. Torrent Providers Section

    • Universal Member – Account with torrentleech

      1. Recommendation: Disable if you don’t have account, Enable if you do

    • Universal Open – open torrent websites like thepiratebay, etc

      1. Recommendation: Definitely enable

This is the section that will autoplay links for you. This with preemptive termination is what makes Gaia with PM better than the rest of the add-ons. I really recommend using this!

      • Selection: Gives you the option of how to match the subs, you can use automatic, choice, match, or manual. I would use choice

      • Notifications: shows a popup if subs were downloaded or not found, enable by your preference

      • Foreign Conversion: Subs are converted to UTF-8 to accommodate foreign characters and symbols in other languages

Library Tab

  1. Library Section

    • Allows for library integration, enable if you want library integration

  2. Library Section 2

    • Ignore Duplicates – Ignores items already added to your local library

    • Precheck Additions – Checks if streams can be found before adding to library

    • Unaired Episodes – Includes shows and episodes that do not have an air date

  3. Updates Section

    • Automatic Library Update – Automatically updates kodi library when items are added to it

    • Automatic Watched Updates – Automatically adds watched items to the local library

    • Automatic Show Updates – Automatically updates the local library when kodi or Gaia is launched

    • Notifications – Shows a notification or permanent message when updating library until finished, i’d put this to permanent if i were to use it

  4. Locations Section

    • Locations – How Gaia stores library files, in a combined or separate folders, i prefer separate for organizational sake but both options work just fine

    • Combined or (Type) Location – Just gives folder location for current library items.
