Comet

Comet is an innovative new Stremio addon which differentiates itself from the existing Stremio Addons with the superpowers of:

  • Works with Real-Debrid, All-Debrid, and Premiumize
  • Scraping all public DMM content with Zilean
  • Add your own indexers with Jackett or Prowlarr
  • Smart Torrent Ranking by RTN
  • Proxying Debrid requests, allowing you to use multiple IPs with one RD account!

Get Elf Hosted Comet! 🪄

Comet gets revenue sharing! ❤

Comet is an "Elf-illiated" Premium Stremio Addon - the developer maintains an active support channel (#elf-comet) in our Discord community, the app itself is tuned to work perfectly with ElfHosted "out-of-the-box", and 30% of your subscriptions are contributed to the developer!

How do I access Comet?

Comet will be available from your dashboard (https://<username>.elfhosted.com>), or directly, at https://<username>-comet.elfhosted.com

How do I use it

Environment variables

Comet is configured using environment variables. Use Kubernetes Dashboard to set your environment variables.

Here's a helpful video:

With Prowlarr

Paste the following into Kubernetes Dashboard to create a new ConfigMap resource (elfbot-comet) is the same ConfigMap that would get created/updated if you used ElfBot to do this, but because of the advanced syntax of some of the values, editing a ConfigMap is the better approach.

apiVersion: v1
kind: ConfigMap
metadata:
  name: elfbot-comet
data:
  INDEXER_MANAGER_TYPE: prowlarr
  INDEXER_MANAGER_URL: http://prowlarr:9696
  INDEXER_MANAGER_API_KEY: <YOUR PROWLARR API KEY>
  INDEXER_MANAGER_INDEXERS: '["EXAMPLE1_CHANGETHIS", "EXAMPLE2_CHANGETHIS"]'

With Jackett

Paste the following into Kubernetes Dashboard to create a new ConfigMap resource (elfbot-comet) is the same ConfigMap that would get created/updated if you used ElfBot to do this, but because of the advanced syntax of some of the values, editing a ConfigMap is the better approach.

apiVersion: v1
kind: ConfigMap
metadata:
  name: elfbot-comet
data:
  INDEXER_MANAGER_TYPE: jackett
  INDEXER_MANAGER_URL: http://jackett:9117
  INDEXER_MANAGER_API_KEY: <YOUR JACKETT API KEY>
  INDEXER_MANAGER_INDEXERS: '["EXAMPLE1_CHANGETHIS", "EXAMPLE2_CHANGETHIS"]

Now visit your Comet URL from your dashboard, enter your debrid provider API key, pick your indexers (may as well pick 'em all!), and click Install!

Debrid Stream Proxying

Here's how Debrid Stream Proxying works

Here's how Comet works as a "regular" Stremio addon:

sequenceDiagram
    Stremio->>+Comet: Search movie
    Comet->>+Indexer: Search movie
    Indexer->>Comet: Search Results
    Comet->>Stremio: Search results
    Stremio->>Comet: Play movie
    Comet->>RealDebrid: Get link
    RealDebrid->>Comet: Here's link
    Comet->>Stremio: Here's link
    Stremio->>RealDebrid: Play link
    RealDebrid->>Stremio: Enjoy!

Stremio searches/requests content via Comet, and Comet returns an "unrestricted" RD download link to Stremio, which uses that link to stream the content.

But here's how Comet works in Proxy Stream mode:

sequenceDiagram
    Stremio->>+Comet: Search movie
    Comet->>+Indexer: Search movie
    Indexer->>Comet: Search Results
    Comet->>Stremio: Search results
    Stremio->>Comet: Play movie
    Comet->>RealDebrid: Get link
    RealDebrid->>Comet: Here's link
    Comet->>Stremio: Here's proxy link
    Stremio->>Comet: Play proxy link
    Comet->>RealDebrid: Play link
    RealDebrid->>Comet: Enjoy!
    Comet->>Stremio: Enjoy!

Unlike regular mode, in Proxy Stream mode, Comet doesn't return the unrestricted download link to Stremio, rather it returns a Comet download link, and when Stremio requests that link, Comet downloads the real download link from RealDebrid, and serves it to Stremio.

Thus, all interaction with RealDebrid is done from Comet. Stremio talks to Comet exclusively, and streams the content through Comet. Therefore, only a single source IP is in use, from the perspective of Stremio!

Use comet consistently

If you're going to use Comet in Stream Proxy mode, remember that ElfHosted will be the IP that RealDebrid sees when you stream from Stremio. If you use other addons to stream on one device, while using Comet on another, you'll again trigger the multiple-source-IPs problem.

In Stream Proxy mode, use Comet exclusively, everywhere!

Concurrent stream limit

ElfHosted's Comet instances are rate-limited at 125Mbps, which is enough for one 4K HDR stream, or several 1080P streams. A

What users say..

Here's what some of our usersfriends say..

"The Elfhosted product alone is great. The team is super transparent on the issues and resolutions that happen as it grows. Lots of opportunity to self-solve issues, but the support from both mods and darth-penguini is SO quick and proactive. Props to them."

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ @elevenfifteen (Discord)

"I don't understand how there aren't tons of elves already. The way this whole thing is setup is great, from getting a free $10 amount of elfbuckz to start, free 7 day trials on most services, the subscription prices of the products are reasonable, to the smoothness of how everything runs. I just dont get it, people choose to pay way more with places that don't provide the same customer service nor have a great community like this one. I recommend elfhosted to everyone.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ @bigcasino1_69181 (Discord)

Pricing update since this review

Our pricing model was updated in July 2024, removing the free $10 ElfBuckz and the 7-day trials, and replacing them with standard pricing tiers and a 14-day refund policy.

"Just wanted to check in here and let @Darth-Penguini and anyone/everyone else know...WOW. I have been struggling with storage for years, maintenance of Docker containers, upkeep, all of it. Elfhosted is so freeing. It's an amazing service that I hope to be a member of for a long, long time!"

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ @Fingers91 (Discord)

"I just have to say, I am an incredibly satisfied customer. I had been collecting my own content for nearly 20 years. Starting off with just a simple external HD before eventually graduating to a seedbox with 100TB of cloud storage attached and fully automated processes with Sonarr and Radarr . However, the time came when the glory days of unlimited Google Drive storage ended. I thought my days of having my full collection at my fingertips via :plex: were behind me, until I found Real-Debrid and ElfHosted.

Now I essentially have the exact same access to content as I had before, but even better. Superior support and community involvement. Content is available almost immediately after being identified. A plethora of tools at my fingertips that give me more control and automation than ever before. Wonderfully well done and impressive! I am looking forward to being a customer for a very long time! Massive kudos to @funkypenguin 🤟

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ @BSM (Discord)
