How fast is The Magic Dragon Kodi Addon?

We have tried and tested many, many Kodi addons, and The Magic Dragon has been by far the best and fastest addon of all times. We consider three things to judge the speed of any addon:

  • Navigation speed, how fast is it?
  • Time is taken by an addon to grab stream links.
  • Playback time, how much time it takes to play a grabbed stream.

We say The Magic Dragon is the best among all Kodi addons as it is fast and smooth. It takes less than a minute or 30 seconds to grab streams and almost instantly starts playback from the stream we have chosen. 

You might feel a little slow playback time if you play less popular videos, as it varies with the content. The popular videos will be faster to play, though. Overall, the Magic Dragon is still faster than the other addons.

Quality Content with The Magic Dragon Kodi Addon

When you start using this addon, you might feel like it gives you a lesser number of streaming links than other addons. This is by design to choose quality over quantity. The Magic Dragon addon automatically filters out the links which are unhealthy and weak while giving you the healthiest links with a higher chance of stress-free streaming.
