How to Install Trepidation Addon on Kodi

How to Install Trepidation Addon on Kodi

In this tutorial, we will learn about How to Install Trepidation Addon on Kodi media player. TREPIDATION Kodi addon is for those who love the adrenalin that horror movies bring. This add-on has a solid collection of horror content, including the old movies and the new ones. I really like the way they have categorized the content so you know exactly where to look for what you want to watch. Some of their top categories are Greatest Horror Films of all time.

UPDATING: This addon does not work now. Check our list of working Kodi Addons here.


The first thing that you want to do is allow the unknown sources so that you can install third-party add-ons like Trepidation for Kodi. It requires a quick adjustment of the security settings. But don’t worry as it won’t make your device vulnerable. Trepidation for Kodi is a trusted one addon used by thousands. This is what we will change:

# 1. Click the gear icon for the Settings menu at the top left of the Kodi home screen. The settings icon is just below the Kodi logo

# 2. Now click on ‘System Settings’ and navigate to the Add-ons submenu item in the left sidebar/panel

# 3 On the right side you should see ‘Unknown sources’ with the toggle button next to it.

# 4. Drag the switch to the right to allow unknown sources. Click Yes when you see the following warning message (again don’t worry because shyness is safe)


Now you are all set to install Trepidation Kodi addon.

Before we start, let me tell you that the following installation method works on all Kodi supported devices as the Kodi interface is the same for everyone. Whether you use Kodi on FireStick, Android TV, Windows, or smartphones, the steps remain applicable.

I have divided the installation process into three steps:

  • STEP 1: Add the source to install the Tantrum TV Repository
  • STEP 2: Install Tantrum TV Repository
  • STEP 3: Install Trepidation addon on Kodi from Tantrum TV repository

STEP 1: Add the source to Kodi

In this part, we need to add the source URL to Kodi so that in the next part we can install the desired repository. Follow the steps below:

# 1. Click on the ‘Settings’ menu by clicking on the gear/gear icon at the top left of the Kodi home screen


# 2. Now click on the ‘File Manager’ icon in the next window


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


# 4. A sub-window titled ‘Add File Source’ will appear. Click ‘in this window (see image below)


# 5. Now enter the URL and click the OK button

Note: Enter the source URL exactly as I shared. Typos will lead to installation problems and therefore a lot of hassle.


# 6. Now enter the name of the source in the ‘Enter a name for this media source’ field. There is no restriction on the name you can choose. But it is advisable to name it with which you can identify later. We need it.

In this guide, we add the source name as ‘TantrumTV’

When that’s done, click ‘OK’


You have successfully added the source. Let’s go to the next part.

STEP 2: Install the Tantrum TV Repository

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

# 2. On the next screen, click on the ‘Package Installation’ icon. This icon is in the top left corner of the screen. It looks like an open box image. It can also look like the Dropbox icon.


# 3. Click on the option ‘Install zip file form’


# 4. Now you will see another pop-up. In this window, click on ‘TantrumTV’ (or the name you entered earlier when adding the source).


# 5. In the next window, click on the zip file named ‘


Note that the filename may change/update if an updated version of the repository is released. The numbers 1.2.2 in the zip file represent the current version.0

# 6. Now, wait for the message ‘Tantrum.TV Repository Add-on Installed’. It will appear in the top right (image below)


Well, you have successfully added the Tantrum TV repository. We will now learn to install a Trepidation video addon for Kodi using this repo.
