Stremio iOS App. The users of Stremio iPhone app gets an option to save the videos to the Library and watch them later at their own preferred time. The best part is that the Library gets synced with your entire iPhone and iPad devices app and you can even stream the video later using the desktop app as well. The 🧙 Stremio Addon SDK 🧙 was developed by the Stremio Team as a way of vastly simplifying Node.js addon creation for our streaming platform. Stremio currently supports Windows, macOS, Linux, Android and iOS. Due to restrictions, imposed by Apple, our iOS app currently supports only the following add-ons: Guidebox. We are working on expanding this list. In the meantime, please use our desktop app to access more add-ons. Let me know if this helps. Stremio provides an intuitive search function that allows clients to find a file based off of title, characters, release date or genre. Viewing history, the current video library and the appearance of the skins themselves can all be modified with only a few simple steps. Read More: Watch free movies online. Stremio for iOS is called Stremio Organizer and can be used to manage your stremio library. I can't be used to play any can't be used to play any content due to apple terms and rules.

Stremio is a modern media center that gives you the freedom to watch everything you want.

How does it work?

Once you install Stremio on your device and create an account, all you have to do is to visit the addon catalog and install any addon you want, and you're good to go!

After that, you can go to the Discover or Board sections to start exploring content.

What can I watch here?

A lot: Movies, TV shows, Web channels, Sport, TV channels, listen to Podcasts and more. Thanks to our addon system, you can access a variety of content.

Is Stremio open-source?

Yes, you can check the following links: desktop app and GitHub organization.

Is Stremio safe?

Yes: because it is open-source software, the code is publically auditable and you can review it yourself.


How about my privacy?

Stremio Desktop Ios

We respect users' privacy and do not collect any personal data besides the essential minimum to create and sync your account.

There is also a Guest mode at signup, which requires no data whatsoever: in this mode, no calls are made to our backend. However, it comes at the expense of useful features, such as being able to sync your library across devices.

Can I cast to my TV?

Yes, we support Chromecast and you can cast both from desktop and mobile apps (Android).

How many addons does Stremio have?

As of late 2019, over 50 - for more information, check our addon catalog.


Can Stremio be extended beyond what's in the addon catalog?

Yes, you should check those: PimpMyStremio, Reddit communities, Stremio Downloader, etc.

What devices does Stremio support?

We have desktop apps for Windows, Mac and Linux. For mobile, we support Android and iOS, although keep in mind that the iOS is limited in functionality (does not support most addons).

There are many Android-based devices which you can run Stremio on, like NVIDIA Shield and Amazon Fire Stick, but we do not support them officially.

Can you add certain content to Stremio?

Sorry, we provide no content ourselves, but the more Stremio addons you have installed, the more content you will be able to find.

Can Stremio play magnet links?

Yes, and it can also play normal HTTP links and torrent files (drag and drop).

Can I download a video and watch offline?

Available offline is an upcoming feature, but if you allow Stremio to cache on your device (from the settings panel) you can watch the videos later without a connection.

Nothing works, help me!

Are you sure you have installed addons? If yes, check with our help center.

How does Stremio sustain it's development operations?

We run non-intrusive ads through AdEx, which is a company by the same founding team that focuses on privacy preserving, transparent ads.

Today marks a new era for Stremio: the Web alpha version was open-sourced on GitHub:

This is the first Stremio version that is a web app, which means it runs in your browser! It also features a slightly redesigned user interface, with a new color palette and focused on improved usability.

It’s also the first full-featured Stremio UI that’s fully open-source, and it’s licensed under GPLv2.

How To Use Stremio On Ios

How complete is this?

This is an alpha release intended for early adopters and developers. It is not complete enough for everyday use.

Currently, you can only run it locally from the GitHub repository.

When will it be production ready?

We’re currently targeting a beta release in July/August.

Does it support streaming from all addons?

To support advanced streaming features (non-standard formats, local files and BitTorrent), it must be connected to a streaming server.

There are a few ways this can be done:


Stremio Desktop Ios App

  • By connecting it to a running instance of the Stremio desktop app
  • Later down the line, there will be a standalone streaming server (10-20MB download) which you will be able to install

Will it work on Android/iOS?

Yes! However, we recommend using the standalone app on Android.

As for iOS, initially there will be support for iPads only, as iPhones do not support MSE. However, it’s possible to work this around eventually by implementing HLS.

How does it work under the hood?

The app uses React, combined with stremio-core, which is a library that implements all the business logic of Stremio (addons, account management, library, notifications, continue watching), written in Rust and compiled to WebAssembly.

For playing video, it uses the regular HTML5 <video> tag, with Media Source Extensions, which allows it to play media that’s transcoded/transmuxed on the fly – this allows it to play any format, as long as it’s connected to a streaming server.

If it requires being connected to a streaming server, what’s the benefit of running in the browser?

There are many addons which do not require a streaming server to work. We’re planning to have a separate list in the addon catalog for addons that work without a streaming server.

Additionally, running in the browser has the following advantages:

  • Consistent video playback performance
  • Easier and faster updates
  • Lightweight: the streaming server is only about 10-20MB to download, while the entire desktop app is around 100MB
  • You can use Stremio on many devices in your local network w/o installing anything, as long as you have a streaming server on only one of them

Final thoughts

Stremio Desktop Ios 11


We are not replacing the Desktop or Android applications with Stremio Web, all our applications will continue to work as they have before.

But we will always work to make Stremio more accessible, simpler to use, and closer to our users. With this vision in mind, Stremio Web brings us one step closer to that goal, by bringing Stremio directly to the browser, on any device.

We have faith that our growing community will embrace this web version, as they embraced all of our applications. Together, we will make something truly amazing, that millions of users worldwide will use daily for their media needs.
