How to Install Trepidation Addon on Kodi 17.6 Krypton


To install a Kodi addon that is still in development, we use the Addon Installer, which is a simple frontend that allows us to download the Addon that we want and then install it onto our Kodi installation. Here is how you can install the Trepidation Addon:

This week we will be showing you how to install the Trepidation Addon on your Kodi devices. Trepidation is one of the best Kodi addons that has been around for quite a while. The best thing about it is that it’s mostly updated with the latest Kodi Krypton 17.6. It has a lot of great content for you to watch and enjoy. We like to call it the “Netflix of Kodi”.

The Kodi Trepidation addon is for those who love the adrenaline rush of horror movies. This supplement contains a solid collection of horror content, including old and new films. I really like the way they categorize the content so you know exactly where to look for what you want to see. Some of their main categories are The Greatest Horror Movies of All Time.

Horror movies are also available through other popular video add-ons. But for fans of the horror genre, a dedicated addon for Kodi makes sense. So, if you’re looking for a horror addon for Kodi, Trepidation is a good choice in my opinion. In this article you will learn how to install the Trepidation addon on Kodi 17.6 Krypton. It can also be installed on Kodi 16 Jarvis, but I would recommend updating Kodi to the latest version if you are still using Jarvis. Read on!

UPDATE : Now, this addon doesn’t work anymore. See my list of working Kodi addons here.


First, you need to allow unknown sources to install third-party add-ons, like Trepidation for Kodi. To do this, you need to quickly change the security settings. But don’t be intimidated, because this doesn’t make your device vulnerable. Trepidation for Kodi is a reliable addon used by thousands of people. That’s exactly what we’re going to change:

#1. Click on the cog icon for the Settings menu on the top left of the Kodi home screen. The Settings icon is located directly below the Kodi logo.

#2. Now click on System Preferences and go to the Add-ons submenu item in the sidebar/left panel.

#3. On the right hand side you should see Unknown Sources with a capital letter next to it.

#4. Slide the switch to the right to enable Unknown sources. Click Yes if you see the following warning (again, no need to worry as Trepidation is safe).

You are now ready to install the Kodi Trepidation addon.

Before we start, let me tell you that the following installation method will work on all Kodi-compatible devices because the Kodi interface is the same on all devices. Whether you’re using Kodi on FireStick, Android TV, Windows or a smartphone, these steps still apply.

I have divided the installation process into three steps:

  • STEP 1: Added a source to install the Tantrum TV repository
  • STEP TWO: Install the Tantrum TV repository
  • STEP THREE: Install the Trepidation addon on Kodi from the Tantrum TV repository.

Attention KODI users: please read before continuing

Kodi addons / modules offer unlimited streaming content, but can also get you in legal trouble if you get caught watching movies / TV shows / sports for free. Kodi users are strongly advised to always connect a VPN when streaming online. A good Kodi VPN can hide your identity, bypass government surveillance, block content, and ISP throttling (which also contributes to buffer-free streaming).

I use ExpressVPN, which is the fastest and most secure VPN. It is very easy to install on any device, including the Amazon FireStick. Get 3 months free and save 49% on annual plans. There is also a 30 day money back guarantee. If you are not satisfied, you can always ask for a refund.

STEP 1: Add source to Kodi

In this part, we need to add the source URL to Kodi to install the desired repository in the next part. Perform the following steps:

#1. Go to the Settings menu by pressing the cog icon in the top left corner of the Kodi home screen.

#2. Now click on the file manager icon in the window that opens.

#3. You will now see a list. Click Add a source in this list. You may have to scroll down if you have already added some resources.

#4. A sub-window with the title Add File Source appears. Click <No> in this window (see image below).

#5. Now enter the URL http://repo.tantrumtv.com/download and click OK.

Message: Enter the source URL exactly as I described. Misprints lead to installation problems and then to many problems.

#6. Now enter a source name in the Enter a name for this media source field. There are no restrictions on the name you can choose. However, it is recommended that you give it a name that you can identify with in the future. We’re gonna need it.

In this tutorial, we will add the source name as ‘TantrumTV’.

Then click on OK.

You have successfully added a resource. Let’s get to the next part.

STEP 2: Install Tantrum TV Memory

We’re now going to install the Tantrum TV repository from the source we just added. Later we will install the Trepidation addon for Kodi via this repository.

#1. Now go back to the Kodi home screen and tap Extras in the left sidebar or the

#2. On the next screen, click the package installer icon. This icon is located in the top left corner of the screen. It looks like the image of an open box. It can also look like a Dropbox icon.

#4. Another pop-up window will appear. In this window, click TantrumTV (or the name you entered earlier when adding the source).

#5. In the next window, click on the zip file called ‘repository.tantrumtv-1.2.zip’.

Note that the filename may change/update when an updated version of the archive is released. The numbers 1.2.2 in the zip file indicate the current version.

#6. Now wait for the notification of the installation of the Tantrum.TV Repository add-on. It appears in the upper right corner (image below).

You have successfully added the Tantrum TV repository. We will now learn how to install the Trepidation video addon for Kodi using this repository.

#3. Select the Video Add-On option

#4. Scroll down and press Flutter.

#5. Click on Install. This button is located at the bottom right of the window.

This will start the installation of the Trepidation addon on Kodi. This process may take 2 to 3 minutes. You can see the download progress on the screen next to Trepidation in the list.

Once the installation is complete, the Trepidation Add-on installed message will appear in the top right corner of the Kodi screen.

This simply means that the Kodi Trepidation addon is installed.

Before you start streaming video with Kodi addons or modules, I want to warn you that everything you stream on Kodi is visible to your ISP and the government. This means that streaming copyrighted content (free movies, TV shows, live broadcasts and sports) can lead to legal problems.

Fortunately, there is a reliable way to hide all your streaming activities from your ISP and the government. All you need is a good VPN for Kodi. A VPN masks your original IP address and helps you bypass surveillance, ISPs and geographical restrictions on content.

Personally, I use and recommend ExpressVPN, the fastest and most secure VPN. It is compatible with all types of applications and streaming devices.

OPINION: We do not encourage copyright infringement. But what if you accidentally upload content from an illegal source? It is not always easy to distinguish between a legal and an illegal source.

So before you start streaming on Kodi, read here how to get VPN protection in 3 easy steps.

Step one: Purchase your ExpressVPN subscription HERE. It comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. This means you can use it for free for the first 30 days. If you are not satisfied with the service (which is unlikely), you can ask for a full refund.

Step two: Click HERE to download and install the ExpressVPN application on your streaming device. If you are using a FireStick, I have included the exact steps below, starting with step 4.

Step three: Click on the power icon to connect to the VPN server. That’s it. Now your connection is secure with the fastest and best VPN for Kodi.

The steps to install Kodi VPN on Fire TV devices are described below. If you have other broadcast devices, follow steps 1 to 3 above.

Step four: Sign up for ExpressVPN HERE (if you are not already a subscriber).

Step 5: Go to the Fire TV Stick home screen. Click the Search button and then the Search option (see figure below).

Step six: Type expressvpn into the search bar and select when it appears.

Seventh step: Click on the Download button.

Step 8: Open the ExpressVPN application and log in using the username and password you created when you purchased your ExpressVPN subscription.

Step 9: Click on the power icon to connect to the VPN server. That’s it. Now your FireStick is protected with the fastest VPN.
