How to Install Medusa Addon on Kodi / FireStick

In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to install Medusa addon on Kodi. You can use the instructions to edit the addon on all platforms supported by Kodi. This includes Amazon FireStick, iOS and Android mobile devices, Android TV boxes, Mac, Windows and Linux computers, and more.

Medusa Kodi addon offers you a huge library of movies and TV shows. Not only will you find the most recent movies and episodes here, but you can also discover a huge collection of movies from the past. Medusa looks like a fork from once very popular and now no longer functional addon Poseidon. It derives the simplicity and ease of use of its predecessor. However, it also offers several improvements.

The first thing that you will probably notice is the fast navigation. You can quickly scroll through categories and hop from one option to another. Medusa also gets the streams fast and plays the chosen link almost immediately. It didn’t take me time to figure out that this had to be the part of our Best Kodi Addons list. For now, it is addon looks great and I hope it continues in the same way for a long time to come.

A brief overview of Medusa Kodi Addon

Let’s take a look first how to access to Medusa. It is actually very easy. Of the homescreen of Kodi, go to Add-ons> Video Add-ons and click Medusa. If you don’t have many add-ons installed, you can even use the addon on the homescreen itself.

Medusa is an on-demand addon that offers regular streaming choices – Movies and TV shows. As shown in the image above, it follows the standard design with regular options. Just click on the Movies or TV Shows category and find what you want to watch.

Like most add-ons, you will find these main categories are further divided into sub-categories. For example, if you open Movies from the main screen, you will find subcategories such as Genres, Year, Actor, etc. These subcategories usually contain more subcategories.

Medusa Kodi addon has a special Critters Corner category on the main screen with some special streaming options. It has several 100 Best categories such as 100 Best of All Time, 100 Best Action, 100 Best Adventure, 100 Best Biography and many more. This section gives you access to movies from the past. I found movie titles dating back to the 1950s. This is something you don’t often see with regular on-demand add-ons.

This addon usually fetches quality links and lets you stream at up to 1080p resolution. It also lets you log in with your Real-Debrid account and offers you higher quality streams and buffer-free playback.


Medusa is one of the better Kodi addons I’ve used lately. It looks like a normal one addon with regular categories. Most importantly, however, all basic functions are handled very effectively. It has a large library of movies and TV shows. It uses multiple scrapers to fetch dozens of links from different sources. It’s a fast addon. Navigation is fast and smooth and playback is almost instantaneous. If you want to watch movies and shows, Medusa Kodi addon is what you should try.
