There are hundreds of add-ons for Kodi, but due to geographical restrictions, many users are unable to use the add-ons that they download. With a VPN, however, digital borders disappear, making all of the Kodi add-ons accessible from anywhere. Protect your personal web activity, establish a protected internet environment, stop ISP surveillance and invasive ad trackers. We strongly suggest using a trusted VPN service like IPVanish

Here you will find all the information on why you need and  how to use a VPN service with Kodi

First we need to install the Specto Repository.

• From your main menu screen select File Manager under System

• Double click Add Source

specto 3

• Press the <None> indication on the pop up window that appears

specto 4

• Type the repository url as following http://kodi.filmkodi.com and click Done

specto 5

• We need to give a name to the repository so press the empty space under Enter a name for this media source

specto 6

• For our guide we choose to name this repository .Specto but you can give any name you want as long as you can recognize  the source. The small dot is a simple solution so our repositories will not mix with local folders as Kodi keeps an alphabetical order to the media sources. Type the name .Specto and click Done

• Select OK

• You should be able to see .Specto added to your media sources. If you receive a message that your system cannot connect to the media source check again the url you typed for the repository and make sure it is correct. If that is correct check your internet connection. If nothing of the above is the problem then there is a chance that the media source is temporary down and you may need to continue the installation when the url is active.

• Now you need to go back to your main screen and select Add-ons from the System menu

• Select Install from zip file

specto 19

• The installation may take some time. When it is finished you will see a message Add-on enabled. Depending on the Skin or Build you use the message may appear in a different location. You will also see the indication Enabled next to the add-on. That should appear in all the add-ons installed in your system.

Specto is now installed in your system and you can find it in your Video add-ons. Since this is a 3d party add-on  it is not supported by the official Kodi developers, Site or Forums. As the developer of Specto indicates you can find support here.

ISPs often employ Deep Packet Inspection to snoop on your Internet traffic and limit your Internet speed, including upload and download speeds, based on your Internet usage. IPVanish prevents Deep Packet Inspection and helps you maintain your privacy. We strongly suggest using a trusted VPN service like IPVanish
