The Velocity addon for Kodi has a lot to offer anyone looking for good movie streams. The addon appears on our top list for HD movie addons as well. Velocity is not as well utilized as some other addons. However, it provides excellent access to a large number of new and older movies, many of which are come in excellently in high definition. Those that don’t still come in in rather high quality. We’ll dig deeper into the benefits and limitations of this addon a little later. First, you’ll want to get Velocity installed on Kodi.

Before we Proceed
We highly recommend using a VPN when using Kodi. Kodi users have been known to receive copyright infringement notices for streaming movies, sports, and TV shows through various addons. If you would like to keep your streaming habits private, our recommendation is IPVanish - a complete privacy solution for Kodi users. It's also worth noting that purchasing a 12 month subscription will give you two months free.

Kodi Addon Velocity – Benefits and Limitations
As stated, one of the most distinguishing benefits to Velocity is that it connects users to HD streaming video. In testing the addon, we found that the videos do come in in HD as advertised and that streams load surprisingly fast. The addon is extremely customizable, allowing users to fine-tune the URL resolver settings and the scraper settings, along with more general settings. Velocity has Trakt.tv integration. Trakt.tv operates like a social media platform for online streaming. It allows you to keep up with shows or movies you’re watching as well as what others are currently trending. Within the addon, you’ll find the option to stream both movies and television shows, both of which are nicely separated into their own sections.
Within the addon, you’ll find the option to stream both movies and television shows, both of which are nicely separated into their own sections. In the TV Shows section, you’ll find categories for shows that are popular, trending, most watched, most played and most collected. The movies section has similar categories but includes a “Box Office” section for new movies. Both the TV and Movies sections include a helpful search feature. Each film or television show also comes with often over a dozen stream sources available, also providing information on how many views each link has. This should help identify whether a stream is more or less likely to work. You can find out the quality of the links before trying them out.
The most notable limitation with the Kodi addon Velocity is its lack of any genre-based categories. While not a necessary feature, it does make finding new films or television shows a bit more difficult, especially if you’re looking for a certain topic. And while the addon provides a large number of links for each video, you have to set up the URL resolver yourself. Most major, premium resolvers are supported (Real-Debrid, Alldebrid, etc.). Otherwise, you’ll have to sift through the links yourself to find the working ones.
Overall, Velocity is an excellent addon, although perhaps bested by more well-developed options such as Exodus or SALTS. However, you can easily find real benefit from this addon, especially with the HD streams.
