Today users watch all kinds of entertainment video more than ever.

There is a huge amount of content provided by video sharing websites like YouTube and Vimeo, different video streaming services such as Netflix, Hulu, iTunes, HBO Go and more. There’s also, of course, torrent websites. Since all the video content we watch generally comes from different sources (websites and services), getting to what we want to watch is often difficult.

The user has to navigate through a number of different interfaces, often with ads and sometimes the content is geographically restricted, which you only find out after you click “Play”.

Stremio solves this problem in a very elegant way.

Stremio is an add-on based application where the video content is delivered by official or third party (community) addons.

[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row admin_label=“Row“][et_pb_column type=“4_4″][et_pb_image admin_label=“Image“ src=“https://www.lifehack.bg/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/Available-Streams.jpg“ show_in_lightbox=“off“ url_new_window=“off“ animation=“off“ sticky=“off“ align=“center“ force_fullwidth=“off“ always_center_on_mobile=“on“ use_border_color=“off“ border_color=“#ffffff“ border_style=“solid“] [/et_pb_image][et_pb_text admin_label=“Text“ background_layout=“light“ text_orientation=“left“ text_font_size=“14″ use_border_color=“off“ border_color=“#ffffff“ border_style=“solid“ custom_css_main_element=“max-width: 70%;||margin: 0 auto;“ custom_padding=“20px|||“]

Imagine a Stremio add-on as a catalogue of movies, TV series or channels and where to stream them from. What makes Stremio add-ons system special, is that you don’t need advanced technical skills to start using an add-on. It is so easy – it takes a single click.

It doesn’t matter if you activate an add-on from the Stremio Store or some third party addon provided by community developers – it takes a single click, that’s it.

The add-on system is secured and well designed. No code is ran on your device, so you can activate without fear any Stremio add-ons you find on the internet. That puts Stremio in very competitive position among similar add-on based products.

Some Add-ons even allow you to watch directly in Stremio itself, through it’s built-in video player:

All the mentioned above, allows Stremio to become the one-stop place for your video entertainment. One beautiful and easy to use product, providing all the video content you’d like to watch.

With Stremio, you can collect all the TV shows and channels you follow as well as the movies you want to watch in a single cloud library. Regardless if you’re on your laptop, your PC or your mobile device – your favourite video content is always there.

How does it work?

The content in Stremio entirely depends on the add-ons you have activated, and it is always arranged into several consistent sections:

[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row admin_label=“Row“][et_pb_column type=“4_4″][et_pb_text admin_label=“Text“ background_layout=“light“ text_orientation=“left“ text_font_size=“14″ use_border_color=“off“ border_color=“#ffffff“ border_style=“solid“][/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row admin_label=“Row“][et_pb_column type=“4_4″][et_pb_text admin_label=“Text“ background_layout=“light“ text_orientation=“left“ text_font_size=“14″ use_border_color=“off“ border_color=“#ffffff“ border_style=“solid“ custom_css_main_element=“max-width: 70%;||margin: 0 auto;“ text_font=“Open Sans||||“ custom_margin=“-30px|||“]

Let’s talk about the Board

The Board is the most innovative feature of Stremio.

It combines movie recommendations, new episode notifications, new YouTube videos, and other video content – all depending on your taste. It is like an endless stream of video content, tailored just for you. The best way to understand it is to see it:

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_image admin_label=“Image“ src=“https://www.lifehack.bg/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/board-screenshot-second.jpg“ show_in_lightbox=“off“ url_new_window=“off“ animation=“off“ sticky=“off“ align=“center“ force_fullwidth=“off“ always_center_on_mobile=“on“ use_border_color=“off“ border_color=“#ffffff“ border_style=“solid“] [/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section][et_pb_section admin_label=“Section“ fullwidth=“off“ specialty=“off“ transparent_background=“off“ background_color=“#e0e0e0″ allow_player_pause=“off“ inner_shadow=“off“ parallax=“off“ parallax_method=“off“ padding_mobile=“off“ make_fullwidth=“off“ use_custom_width=“off“ width_unit=“on“ make_equal=“off“ use_custom_gutter=“off“ gutter_width=“3″][et_pb_row admin_label=“Row“][et_pb_column type=“4_4″][et_pb_text admin_label=“Text“ background_layout=“light“ text_orientation=“left“ text_font_size=“14″ use_border_color=“off“ border_color=“#ffffff“ border_style=“solid“ custom_css_main_element=“max-width: 70%;||margin: 0 auto;“ custom_padding=“0px||30px|“ text_font=“Open Sans||||“]

Stremio as an alternative to Popcorn Time

It’s definitely worth mentioning that Stremio can be used to stream movies and series with subtitles from torrents. This is a functionality is provided by Juan Carlos Torrents add-on, which is not an official Stremio add-on. Juan Carlos Torrents is available for some regions, and can be found in the Stremio add-ons panel under “Popular in your area”.

If you don’t see it, you can click here to enable it.

There’s even a Popcorn Time add-on, allowing you watch the same content that you did in the old Popcorn Time app! With those add-ons you to click and play essentially every reasonably popular movie and TV series. By activating those add-ons, you end up with a huge library of content, much larger than Popcorn Time ever had. You can also open your own .torrent file or magnet link through Stremio, and use it as a streaming video player

Summary

Stremio is definitely the next-generation media center.

They are correctly focused on entertainment video, because the music problem has already been solved. In comparison to other software labeled “media center”, it’s marginally better in user experience and general ease of use and the add-ons system is so seamless that you don’t even notice that the content comes from different places.

Handy features like the Board ( notifications & recommendations ), the Calendar and the cloud Library truly make Stremio a one-stop solution. If anything can fix the problem of finding and watching movies and shows once and for all, it’s Stremio.
