This article discusses the magic dragon app for Kodi. Initiating from scratching the surface of Kodi, we have shared what is The Magic Dragon add-on and how it can be installed on Kodi through the repo. Later, an overview of the addon with its usage has also been discussed. We have also explicitly shared the legalities involved both with the Kodi and the Magic Dragon Kodi add-on. This article has been written for firestick, but because the Kodi interface is the same for every installed OS or device, the same article can be referenced for any device or OS, the Kodi has been installed on.
Note: Magic Dragon add-on is only available for the Kodi 18.9 Leia version. For the Latest Kodi version 19.0 Matrix, it’s unavailable.
Since paying both to the cable/DTH operator and the broadband doesn’t make much sense, a trend has been seen to prefer broadband usage for live TV. Several news channels are freely aired on youtube while some other websites stream some of the other channels. But, the ‘other’ ones are either too hard to find or the payment matches up the cable/DTH operator with lesser channels available.
Still, online streaming has spiked over the last couple of years. The credit may be well given to the OTT platforms for bombarding new content every now and then. Still, different websites needed to be browsed for different OTT content and Live TV. Then some devices were manufactured for streaming.
Amazon Inc. has developed a device called firestick, which has taken over the streaming industry in a very less time. This happened due to its low price, easy setup and flexibility. Amazon has also a library for firestick apps, called as Amazon store. Firestick users can install various apps from the store. The firestick is based on Android, thus it’s possible to install any APK on the firestick, however, a little tweak is needed. And, here comes the Kodi media center to give wings to firestick.
What is Kodi?
To put it simply, Kodi is a media player, but not just an ordinary media player. In fact, a high-end home theater is a complete waste without Kodi. Currently, developed and maintained by XBMC, this free and open-source software (foss) was started by just two developers for XBox, who later abandoned its development. The geeks all over the world took up the source and built the exceptional piece of software, which is today called Kodi. To know more about it, see what is Kodi?

Is Kodi Legal?
Being foss, the source code of Kodi is available in the public domain for scrutiny of its code. And no one has ever found a single infringing piece of code inside it. So Kodi, as a fresh install is completely legal to use. But, just as torrents are completely legal to use, however, you need to be wise about what you get from torrents. Likewise, Kodi is completely legal but what you stream may be subscription based content. Kodi brings all the joys of streaming copyright-free content in one place. With 3rd party addons of Kodi, there are quite good chances that you may play a copyright-protected stream from an illegitimate source or illegal source unknowingly, and this poses a legal threat. Thus it’s always recommended to use a good VPN while streaming with Kodi.
At Dinno we have an article explaining deeply the legal issues with Kodi.

Always Use a VPN With Kodi
As we have suggested to always use a VPN while using Kodi. But the VPN usage is not limited to Kodi only. Your ISP is continuously monitoring your traffic. They can throttle the speed or even block a certain website if they just wish to. Also, some of the content you want to watch maybe a geo-blocked content, so it may not be available in your region.
A VPN re-routes all the traffic through their own servers, thus it’s not possible for an ISP to determine the destination website. They can only know the IP of the VPN’s server, not the one you actually connect to. Several users have reported less speed while using Kodi with their own IP and the moment they connect through a good VPN the speed increases as per their broadband plan. Also, with a VPN you can choose the server of the country, where your favorite geo-blocked content is available.
We have listed some of the best VPNs for Kodi, to help you choose the one that suits you.
