The Use of a VPN?
#1
Hi Guys.

Firstly my apologies if this post is in the wrong place as ive sat here and looked everywhere for a thread that has some sort of relevance but couldnt find one.

My question is: Are you guys connecting to the Net with your Kodi devices via a VPN? Ive noticed aload of twitter posts and advertisments if you like on some Kdoi sites that are going on and on about using a VPN to connect. Personally ive never used one so i suppose most importantly my question to you guys is, should i be using a VPN and if so which one as they all claim to be the latest and greatest?

kind regards

You couldn't find it because VPN usualy means "pirated content" and that is banned here....

  1. There is only one Kodi site and thats kodi.tv the other are either fake or very poor copies.
  2. VPNs are normally used to access Geo-blocked sites and are sometimes used to access Pirate videos but also for security purposes.
  3. You do NOT need a VPN to use kodi.
  4. Kodi media center (formerly known as XBMC) is used for media that you own.
  5. Kodi condemns the use of any addon that gives a user access to pirated material.
  6. A VPN or Virtual Private Network is a method used to add security and privacy to private and public networks, like WiFi Hotspots and the Internet. VPNs are most often used by corporations to protect sensitive data.

Hopefully this answers your question.

Yup, pretty much what they said. VPNs are useful to either shield your traffic from your ISP or else pretend that you're somewhere/someone else.

For legitimate use, Kodi does nothing that really requires either, although some people run "whole house" VPNs just because they like tinfoil hats.

If you want to pretend to be elsewhere to, say, get around region- or country-specific IP address limits (geoblocking) - e.g. to watch iPlayer outside the UK - then a VPN will do that. Similarly, some folks would advocate the same to, say, access a different country's Netflix catalogue (although I believe that this is breach of their terms of service, just as it may well be with iPlayer and most other geoblocked content).

If, however, you want to do it because you're streaming content from unauthorised sources, then I'm afraid you'll need to take the conversation elsewhere. See here.

I personally used VPN with kodi for securing my activity for safe streaming. If you're using VPN for Kodi for security purpose then it is right approach. If you want to unblock geo-blocked content so its a wrong approach.
Other than that you can find the removed from here as per speed test it is because VPN slows down your speed and then you may have buffering issues.

Remember my previous reply to you? One more advertisement like that and your Kodi forum subscription will be terminated indefinitely.

That time is now. Goodbye.
