Quasar is a torrent streaming addon for Kodi. It enables you to turn your Kodi into a way more powerful version of Popcorn Time, with the ability to scrape content from far more torrent trackers. This addon should be interesting for those of you who only want to watch the highest quality HD content, as you can usually find the best quality uncompressed video through torrent sites. Quasar has been in development for quite some time, and is actually quite popular even though it uses torrents.
It is extremely important that you understand that when using torrents, it is imperative that you be using a VPN service in order to maintain your anonymity online. If you use torrents without a VPN service, it is very likely that you’ll end up receiving a warning letter or even a fine through the mail. That being said, once you get Quasar and a VPN installed, you’ll be impressed by the video quality.
