About a month ago, I posted about Gaia, raving about how well-built and intricate the Kodi add-on was. Gaia has an enormous amount of settings, and in my tests, it was able to get more links than any other add-on.
However,… dun, dun duuuun! After spending more time using Gaia as my primary add-on, I quickly realized the biggest downside of Gaia… it’s SLOW!!!
By slow, I mean from the time I click an episode to the time it actually starts playing the episode, it was taking at least 2 minutes on average.
My Attempts to Make Gaia Faster
Now, keep in mind, I spent a good amount of time going through the settings trying to fine-tune them to improve the speed. Since I have Real-Debrid and usually those links work wonderfully, I tried disabling all the other sources available in Gaia.
I figured if it has to scan through less providers, it should load the links faster, right? I did not find any success.
For now, I’ll be using those, but I’ve still got my eye on Gaia, because it looks like it has a lot of potential.
