How to Install Q Continuum Kodi Addon on Firestick in 2021

Over the years, Kodi has had some great addons to augment streamers’ experience. New video addons keep coming up the block day in, day out. And in this guide, we’re going to talk about one such new addon that we tested with our own Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K: Q Continuum Kodi Addon.

If not the best, Q Continuum is perhaps among the top Kodi addons currently available. It’s your one-stop solution for all your entertainment needs. 

Q Continuum hosts a large library of content. Whether it’s a classic movie you want to watch or the latest TV show, this addon will precisely serve that need.

Among others, it hosts anime, documentaries, sports, and so much more. And all this for free!

The addon is easy to use. You are not required to make an account. All you have to do is select content, and the addon would fetch links from across the internet for streaming. It can even at times stream in 4K quality.

Additionally, you can integrate your Real Debrid account with Q Continuum, improving the addon’s functionality. It lets you generate premium, buffer-free links to stream. 

So, without further ado, let’s get straight to getting this addon installed on your devices.

Installing the addon

At the outset, you should be fully aware that installing Kodi addons, especially unofficial ones, entails an elaborate procedure. For the sake of convenience, we’ve divided the installation process into 4 simple parts. Just follow each part and the steps below as exactly as mentioned. 

Part 1: How to enable Unknown Sources?

We need to tweak Kodi’s settings so as to enable “Unknown Sources.” That’s because, by default, Kodi doesn’t allow third-party addons sourced from unofficial repositories. 

Hence, we’ll be sideloading Q Continuum, a third-party addon. 

Step 1: On your device, open the Kodi app, and you should be at the home screen.

Step 2: On the top left, locate and select Settings. You can identify it by its gear icon.

Kodi Home Page

Step 3: The Settings window will show hosts of options. Select System. Identify it by its gear and screw icon.

 

Kodi Settings Screen

Step 4: Scroll down to the addons tab on the left panel. That will prompt new options on the right panel. 

There, select Unknown Sources. You need to toggle ON this option.

Step 5: Enabling Unknown Sources will prompt a warning message. Since Q Continuum is safe and secure, you can assuredly click the Yes button.

Part 2: Adding a Repository Source.

Now, your device is all prepped and ready to go. It’s time to install third-party addons. 

But we need to first add the repository that hosts Q Continuum. In this next part, we’ll attach the source where this addon is hosted.

Step 1: Continuing from where we stopped in the previous part, you can press the back button to return to the Settings screen. 

Also, you can go back to the home screen and select the Settings icon as you did in the previous part. Once you’re there, select File Manager.

File Manager Option

Step 2: Under File Manager, scroll down and select Add source. You can do this on either side of the screen.

Step 3: On the window that pops up, click on <None>.

Step 4: Type the following URL:

http://www.narcacist.com/repo/ 

Click OK.

Enter url

Step 5: On the input box below, you’re supposed to type a name for the source. You can name it anything. 

In our case, we’re going to use NREPO. Once you’ve decided and input the name, click OK to continue.

Part 3: Install Narcacist’s Wizard Repository.

We’ve now finished adding the source for our repository. Q Continuum is hosted by Narcacist’s Repository, which is what we added in the previous step. Now, we are ready to install the repository.

Step 1: Once again, you have to go back to Kodi’s home screen and select Settings. As always, you’ll find lots of options. This time, select addons.

Addon Option

Step 2: You’ll now see a listing. Scroll down and select the option Install from the zip file.

Install from Zip

Step 3: That will prompt a new, small window on your screen. Search for NREPO and select it. 

Search for NREPO

In case you gave the repository source a different name, select that.

Step 4: Select the .zip file. It should be titled repository.NarcacistWizard.zip. In case it’s a different version, don’t mind it and select it regardless.

Select repository.NarcacistWizard.zip

Step 5: Wait while the repository is being installed. Once it’s done, a notification that says it’s completed will pop up.

Part 4: Installing Q Continuum.

Now that the repository is installed, we can begin the final part of the process, which is installing the addon itself.

Step 1: Return to the addons screen. Do this by navigating from the home screen>Settings> addons.

 

Install from Zip

Step 2: From the list, scroll down and select Install from repository.

Step 3: The following screen should bring up a single option. Click on Narcacist’s Wizard Repository.

Step 4: The next screen should have two options, either Program addon or Video addon. Select the latter, Video addon.

Select Video addon

Step 5: You’ll see lots of new options. Scroll down and locate/select Q Continuum.

Step 6: A window confirming the main and additional addons to be installed will pop up. Click OK to this.

Step 8: In case it asks you to select which version, choose the latest one.

Step 9: The addon and its dependencies will not start downloading/installing. Wait for a while until a notification confirming the completion of the process shows up.

With that, you’ve successfully installed the Kodi Q Continuum addon. You can start streaming your favorite content.

 

Using Q Continuum

Getting used to the addon should come easily. Q Continuum has a simple and super easy interface to help navigate even those who aren’t technologically proficient.

Step 1: To launch the addon, you simply have to go back to the home screen. There, on the left panel, scroll down to addons, and you should see new options coming up on the right panel. 

Kodi Addon Screen

Step 2: Under the Video addons category, select Q Continuum.

Select Q Continuum

Once you’ve selected it, the addon should launch in a few seconds. The opening screen is also the home screen, containing a list of folders to choose from. 

Here, among the folders, you can see on the top is a folder named 4K One-Click Section. As the name suggests, the folder contains 4K content.

Be it movies or TV shows, this folder will contain links to stream your favorite content in 4K.

Another folder is named One Click Section. It contains 3D movies, documentaries, and TV shows. 

One Click Section Screen

Just below this folder, you’ll find category-specific folders. Each folder contains subfolders and is sorted based on genre, popularity, resolution, and much more.

Step 3: Scroll further down, and you should see a folder named Non-Debrid. 

Non-Debrid

The folder contains content that is available for free streaming without having a Real-Debrid account integrated into Kodi.

Movies Categories

Step 4: Scroll further down, and you should see a Search folder. That is where Q Continuum proves to be more useful than other entertainment-based addons. 

Search Folder

The search feature allows you to simply type and locate particular content. It does away with the inconvenience of having to go through the folders looking for particular content. Many addons lack this feature, which is why their interface proves to be full of hassle.

Another feature that helps get Q Continuum an edge over its competitors is its customizability. If you further scroll down the list on the addons home screen, at the bottom, you’ll find a Settings folder.

Herein, you can integrate Debrid/Trakt accounts to improve the addon’s functionality. You can even customize the contents and its listing, change certain appearances here and there and do much more.

Fixes for Q Continuum Kodi Addon

Q Continuum runs most times smoothly. But even the best of addons can face certain performance issues. 

Below are some of the most common issues you might face while using the addon, and along with this are mentioned ways to overcome them. 

Issue 1: Unable to outright stream/play content.

This is by far the commonest issue users have reported. Worry not, though! Implement one or all of the fixes mentioned below, and that should do it.

Step 1: You can go to your device’s App and Data Setting. There, try to clear the cache of the Kodi app. Restart your device once you’re done.

Step 2: On the Q Continuum’s home screen, scroll down and select the Settings folder. Therein, you can switch the Auto Play feature to Source Select.

Step 3: Lots of geo-based restricted links are available for streaming on the addon. 

ISPs block some content depending on the geographical location of the users. Use a VPN service to overcome this issue.

Issue 2: Q Continuum not starting.

This is another issue that seems to have bugged users for a long time now. In case you, too, are unable to load the addon on the Kodi app, try following the steps mentioned below.

Step 1: You can try the method previously mentioned. Clearing the cache of Kodi’s app on the device’s settings can resolve otherwise undetected issues.

Step 2: You can turn off your VPN service, in case you’re using one, and try to launch the addon. Once the addon launches, you can try enabling the VPN or proxy again.

Issue 3: Dependencies of Q Continuum not installing.

Users have often reported that they were unable to install Q Continuum and its dependencies. That might be due to busy servers that ultimately don’t install the addon. 

In order to fix this issue, you can go back and follow Part 3 mentioned at the start.

Another frequently reported issue with Kodi is that it constantly freezes and crashes, especially after extended periods of usage. You can overcome this issue by simply clearing the Kodi’s cache in the device’s settings.

An Overview: Is Q Continuum safe and legal?

It’s important to check whether a particular addon is safe or not before installing it on your device. And Q Continuum is no exception to the rule, more so because it’s a third-party addon. 

Some users might even feel skeptical about the addon, considering how good it is. But rest assured that Q Continuum is indeed a safe addon. 

Unlike many addons which might contain harmful files and viruses, this one is safe and legal. 

We ran a security check on Narcascist’s Wizard Repository via Kaspersky’s Threat Intelligence Portal. And as expected, it didn’t identify any malicious issue. 

In case you’ve forgotten, the Wizard Repository is where Q Continuum is hosted.

You might wonder, if Q Continuum is safe and legal, why isn’t it available on Kodi’s official repository?

No doubt, the addon is safe and secure, but it happens to be operated and maintained by developers working independently from Kodi. And because of that, Kodi cannot verify the legality of each link the addon fetches from the internet.

All addons are legal and downloadable, but using addons to pull illegal links to stream copyrighted content is definitely illegal. So, even if Q Continuum is legal and safe, you can end up, mostly without your knowledge, watching illegal/copyrighted content. 

The problem is further exacerbated because devices such as Firesticks cannot verify each video stream via such addons. One foolproof way to bypass this issue is by making use of a good VPN service.

With VPNs, you can overcome the risk of online surveillance and monitoring. Additionally, VPN services connect users to different geographical servers, unlocking much geo-based restricted content. 

We personally recommend using ExpressVPN. Besides being fast and safe, it offers prospective subscribers a grace period of 30-days. In case you don’t like their service, within the first 30-days, a refund will be initiated.

Conclusion

As though we haven’t said it already, Q Continuum is a great Kodi addon. But don’t just simply take our word on it. Use it to know it yourself.

With such a great range of content to stream from, you’ll never get tired of hopping from one watchable to another. 

It’s free and open-sourced. What more would one want?
