Gaia Kodi Addon
Gaia deserves to be in the hall of fame when it comes to Kodi add ons. A fork of the Bubbles add on from 2017, which then went dark. The Gaia developer forked their code and has kept Gaia going ever since, making it one of the oldest add ons around on Kodi.
Gaia has a habit of becoming popular after a big update (Gaia is currently on its 5th major version) then sinking down the rankings before shooting back up.
Gaia concentrates solely on Movies and TV Shows, with a massive range of content. As well as an incredible amount of settings and configurations.
We can’t think of another add on which is compatible with as many premium services, user nets or different scraper libraries. You can get the very best out of Gaia by using it with a service like Real Debrid.
But, honestly your unlikely to not be able to find a stream for any content. Gaia now comes with Orion a faster system of downloading content from streams and reducing bandwidth for playback. As well as automatic playback which means Gaia will find the best working stream, and you can also set it to download the next episode in the background.
YOUR INTERNET ACTIVITY IS BEING WATCHED
ReviewVPN cannot attest to the legality, security and privacy of the applications discussed on this site. It is highly recommended that you use a VPN service while streaming or using Kodi.
Currently, your IP 188.8.131.52 is visible to everyone and your Browser is being tracked by Advertisers & ISP Provider.
Here are the main reasons why you must use a VPN:
- Your activities are hidden from your ISP, the government, and from the apps you are using.
- You can access additional movies and TV streams.
- ISP attempts to throttle are thrwarted thus reducing buffering issues.
- Geographically restricted content like Netflix and Hulu can be unblocked.
A VPN works be replacing your ISP-assigned IP address and creating an encrypted tunnel. We recommend the no log service offered by IPVanish. It works well on a Firestick and offers the fastest possible speeds.
Here’s a list of common errors you might come across with Gaia:
- No stream available. An unlikely error with Gaia, but you can turn on and search for updated scraper lists in the Scraper settings. If the problem persists check our step by step fix guide above.
- A script error. If you come across this error when installing Gaia, check that you are downloading it from the correct repository. Otherwise, chances are your Kodi installation may be corrupted. For more fixes, try some more in the guide linked above.
- Cannot download Gaia. Always check you’ve got the right URL, try again just to check it’s not a server overload problem. If the problem persists read more here <LINK>
- Olpair Streaming Error. The upside of using Real Debrid is you don’t have to renew Captcha on free servers. Olpair errors can generally be fixed by getting a new token. If that doesn’t work, try some more in the fixed guide linked above.

Gaia is one of the best add ons out there hands down. It just has so many functions, setting and configurations that one of its biggest problems was that it was so hard to set up initially.
Now that is a problem of the past, you can use the Reaper settings mode to get Gaia set up in 3 minutes or less.
That’s because Gaia links in with 10+ premium add ons, as well as a massive library or scrapers and UseNet interfaces. But for the less technical user, just follow the suggested installation instructions provided.
The fifth big update for Gaia which came out in June 2019 provides some awesome updated functions:
- You can now binge-watch episodes Netflix style, Gaia’s will scrape and load the next episode in the background moving you seamlessly from one episode to the next
- Emby is now supported which means you can scrape and stream from their servers
- Both the internal and Orion UseNet has been upgraded meaning that you can get even more content scrapers which are continuously updated
- IMDB watchlists can be exported to your Trakt account
- Orion now has a vastly improved caching system, which reduces the amount of time it takes to load content, and less bandwidth is taken up. Great news for those who have slower internet connections
