You can even display the newest videos of your preferred YouTube channels in a separate tab.

An Age of Streaming Crackdown, Blockades and Surveillance

While the internet was meant to provide seamless and unhindered access to content, the reality is anything but. The variety of accessibility limitations on the internet require a robust solution like a VPN to get past regional limitations, cyberattacks, government crackdowns and mass online surveillance.

A VPN is a secure service that channels your internet traffic through encrypted tunnels, keeping your internet activities safe at all times with the help of AES 256-bit encryption.

Besides, VPN servers located around the world help you get around regional restrictions and stay clear of surveillance.

Risks of using Stremio without a VPN

Using Stremio without a VPN could be risky and might harm your device, in terms of viruses and spyware being accidentally downloaded on your device.

A VPN becomes a necessity when you’re trying to use third-party Stremio add-ons as some might not be available in your country and need to be accessed. In such an event, a VPN will hide your internet activity and your existing location, hence providing you complete online anonymity.

Furthermore, ISPs have become smart and have started to throttle internet connections if they observe that the bandwidth consumption is escalating. However, PureVPN channels your internet traffic through its secure servers, making sure your ISP doesn’t see your online activities and throttle your internet connection.

Stremio not working with a VPN

If your Stremio is not working with a VPN service, make sure about the following:

  • You’ve got an active internet connection
  • Your credentials are correct.
  • Log out and login again.

Once this is done, you should be able to stream content on Stremio without any hassle.

Stremio Add-ons

All of the video content available on Stremio gets sourced through an add-on system as Stremio does not have any content of its own not paired with a content provider. Here is the list of Stremio add-ons:

  1. Juan Carlos
  2. Iberian
  3. Popcorn Time
  4. Netflix
  5. RARBG
  6. WatchHub

Is Stremio Illegal?

You can enjoy any media content available fon Stremio all by legal means. This is because the well-known media streaming platform offers its content through popular add-ons that are completely legal.

Users can easily watch their favorite content through its media player as Stremio is compatible with a list of operating systems and devices like Windows, Mac, Android, iOS, and even Amazon FireStick.

Stremio Buffering Issues and Solutions

You might experience buffering due to ISP throttling. However, when connected to PureVPN, you can bypass ISP throttling and even achieve high speeds at times. Moreover, some Stremio add-ons may experience compatibility issues as well as irregular speeds due to an increasing number of visitors streaming with that add-on.

A simple solution is to either reinstall the add-on (which hardly takes a minute) or to simply disable your antivirus or anti-firewall.
