How to use ElfHosted Torrentio Addon (self hosted torrentio instance)

This guide illustrates how to use our ElfHosted Torrentio addon to stream content from debrid providers using Stremio, avoiding outages and rate-limits.

New accounts get $10 credit, enough to run this stack for >2 months!

Our services are subscribed to in "ElfBuckz", our in-store account credit. All new users get $10 ElfBuckz upon account creation, in order to "kick the tyres" ๐Ÿš— before commitment.

How does it work?

  • ElfHosted maintains a torrentio instance for our users' apps (Prowlarr, Iceberg, etc) to use, without rate-limiting.
  • This instance is publically available at (rate-limited) at
  • Users can subscribe to their own instance of the addon (still using the internal database), with much more generous rate-limits

The advantages of this solution are:

  • Use the highly-polished, multi-platform Stremio app
  • Reduce the impact of Torrentio outages / rate-limits
  • Share your addon with friends and family!

The disadvantages, of course, are:

  • IP restriction - your Debrid provider's regular IP restriction policies apply, so be cautious of streaming from multiple locations simultaneously.
  • Less history - we're working on more seeding, but our internal instance doesn't have the years of content that has.


Consider our Infinite Streaming Plex guide if you'd like to Proxy your Real-Debrid access behind Zurg so that you can stream simultaneously from multiple source IPs


  • An account with a supported Debrid provider
