Many streaming devices users have been making a habit of using a VPN whenever they want to stream a movie or a TV show. This is because if you want to ensure your privacy and cover up your IP address, a VPN encrypts your internet connection and hides your information so that no one can detect when you’re streaming or downloading free content. To say as far away as possible from hackers or from the wrath of Internet Service Providers or government agencies, using a VPN is a must.
However, if Real Debrid starts acting up, it can be difficult to pair a VPN. This is because there are only a limited number of VPNs that are compatible with Real Debrid.
What Is Real Debrid?
Before we truly dive into the issue, what exactly is Real Debrid? When you integrate Real Debrid with your streaming device, you’re given access to a variety of file hosts. It’s a great service that can significantly amp up your movie streaming experience. However, if you want to make the most out of Real Debrid, you’ll need to subscribe to the service at a minimum of $4.64 a month. Of course, there’s a free version available, but it’s incredibly limited. You can only use the service from 6AM to 12NN daily.
With the help of Real Debrid, your streaming device will be able to gather up additional links sources. These extra sources don’t have as high of a demand compared to the others, so you probably won’t experience slow buffering. Plus, Real Debrid’s links offer high definition movies for you to choose from.
Troubleshooting Steps When Real Debrid Isn’t Working
Sometimes when you encounter issues pairing your VPN, this usually results in Real Debrid not working. Fortunately, there are a couple troubleshooting steps you can try out to fix the issue.
For starters, go ahead and unpair Real Debrid from the streaming app you use (or add-on) that’s experiencing the issue. You can do this by going to your streaming app’s settings and logging out Real Debrid.
Close the app. If it’s still running in the background, you must force close it.
Close or disconnect your VPN app if you’re using one. Make sure it’s not running in the background as well.
At this point, you can open up the streaming app or add-on you were using.
Pair Real Debrid with your app or add-on once again by logging in.
Launch your VPN app and reconnect to the service.
After following these steps, Real Debrid should start working properly again. If you search for a movie, you’ll find that links begin to generate like normal and you can select the link source you want to watch from. Enjoy!
These steps are simple and easy to follow, so you can refer to this guide as often as you want if or when you find that Real Debrid isn’t working for you. If the connection still doesn’t refresh after following the steps and your streaming app refuses to load anything, try connecting your VPN to a different server. VPN services usually offer a variety of servers to choose from, so you should be able to find a working one eventually.
You can also check if your premium account has already expired, as this is one of the causes why Real Debrid may not be working for you.
