Kodi Media Center Guide: How to Add The Crew Video Add-on Repository

As an experienced Kodi user for over 5 years, I highly recommend installing The Crew video add-on to enhance your media center experience. The Crew provides easy access to a huge library of movies, TV shows, live sports, and more from both free and premium sources.

In this comprehensive guide, I will walk you through the entire process of adding The Crew video add-on repository to Kodi step-by-step.

Overview of The Crew Add-on

Here are some of the key features that make The Crew one of the best Kodi add-ons available today:

  • Huge media library – Tons of movies, TV shows, live sports, comedy, kids content, and more
  • Free and premium sources – Scrapes both free file hosts and premium debrid services
  • Great interface – Intuitive menu and navigation
  • Advanced scraping – Finds tons of high-quality stream links
  • 4K and 1080p streams – Tons of high-quality video sources

The Crew delivers an exceptional streaming experience through Kodi by aggregating media content from various free and premium sources all in one place.


Before installing The Crew, there are a couple of things you need to do first:

  • Allow Unknown Sources – This allows Kodi to install third-party add-ons outside the official Kodi repository. Go to Settings > System > Add-ons and enable “Unknown Sources”.
  • Enable ADB debugging – This is only required if installing on an Android device like a Firestick. Go to Settings > My Fire TV > Developer Options.

Once you’ve enabled those options, you are ready to add The Crew repository.

  1. Open the File Manager in Kodi by going to Add-ons > Package Installer > Install from zip file
