WHAT IS STREMIO?
Table of Contents
Stremio is a modern media center that’s a one-stop solution for your video entertainment. You discover, watch and organize video content from easy to install addons.
Movies, TV shows, live TV or web channels – find all this on Stremio.
A Look at the Basic Features
One of the main benefits associated with Stremio is that it allows users to compile a selection of videos from numerous different websites. As opposed to being forced to navigate to each provider separately, all files can be accessed from within this centralised portal. Not only can this save a significant amount of time, but it is possible to customise different playlists by adjusting the personal settings that are offered. This package works in conjunction with major media hubs such as Twitch, YouTube and Amazon. However, please note that an add-on will need to make a request for a file as opposed to the user being able to download it immediately.
Stremio provides an intuitive search function that allows clients to find a file based off of title, characters, release date or genre. Viewing history, the current video library and the appearance of the skins themselves can all be modified with only a few simple steps.
- Stremio is one of the largest video aggregators on the market.
- all major operating systems are supported by this application.
- Users will be faced with in-app advertisements.
- some of the newest films and television series may not be available for a significant amount of time.

We have desktop apps for Windows, Mac and Linux. For mobile, we support Android and iOS, although keep in mind that the iOS is limited in functionality (does not support most addons).
There are many Android-based devices which you can run Stremio on, like NVIDIA Shield and Amazon Fire Stick, but we do not support them officially.
Can you add certain content to Stremio?
Sorry, we provide no content ourselves, but the more Stremio addons you have installed, the more content you will be able to find.
Can Stremio play magnet links?
Yes, and it can also play normal HTTP links and torrent files (drag and drop).
Can I download a video and watch offline?
Available offline is an upcoming feature, but if you allow Stremio to cache on your device (from the settings panel) you can watch the videos later without a connection.
