Kodi Openload Pair

You must noticed recently when stream movies online using Kodi from Openload.co server (now including VidUp.me and TheVideo.me), you will get a pop up message asking for stream authorization.

The message says “To play this video, authorization is required. Visit the link below to authorize the devices on your network: https://openload.co/pair then click Pair”

Or for the latest Openload pairing page, you will get this message “To play this video, authorization is required. Visit the link below to authorize the devices on your network: https://olpair.com then click Pair”

Note: Don’t get confused about those two errors, both are the same. since https://openload.co/pair and https://olpair.com are the same pairing page for Openload (openload.co/pair will be directed to olpair.com)

This issue occurs on various Kodi add-ons around. So, what is it about?

What is Kodi Openload or Olpair pair stream authorization?

To access openload free service you need to do pair stream authorization or commonly called device pairing. Device pairing itself is a process to register your device’s IP address to Openload system before using their services.

Reasons behind Kodi Openload pair stream authorization

There are two reasons behind this Pair Stream Authorization. First is to limit unauthorized access and limiting the service for human. This will prevent any bandwidth leak for better user experience, free from lag and buffering.

Second is about about monetization. To encourage you to visit their page where various ads displayed. This is a win-win solution between user and openload team, to keep their service up and provides you last updated movies.

Well, seeing the excellent performance from Openload.co server, which guarantees you fast and reliable streaming compared with other servers, I don’t mind doing 15 seconds stream authorization on this page. Also, once done the pairing, this will last up to 4 hours.

Then how to do this?

What if I am using Firestick or TV Box?

Don’t worry, if you are using for example Amazon Firestick TV or other similar TV Box where you will have difficulties on typing and visit the openload.co page, you can do the pairing using other devices as long as it is connected on the same public IP address with your Firestick TV (If you are using WiFi at home means all devices connected using the same IP addres).

You can use your browser from android smartphone, PC, Laptop, Mac and so on then visit the http://openload.co/pair. Once you done the Openload pairing, the message stream authorization will no longer pop up for 4 hours on your Firestick TV. Then, if you got the message again, repeat the same step.

Note: If you are using VPN service, you must access the openload.co/pair using the VPN also.
