Openload Stream Authorization

You’re most likely here on this page because you’re looking for a way to either learn how to disable or pair this Openload stream authorization.

This has been happening for a few months now when trying to access streams from add-ons such as Exodus, Zen, Salts or Covenant. These add-ons pull from many sources around the web and Openload, Vidme, happens to be some of those sources.

Here is the message popping up stating that you need to pair your device in order to start watching the stream.

“To play this video, authorization is required. Visit the link below to authorize the devices on your network: then click pair”

So with really only two options, you can either follow the directions and head to their site and pair it, or you can disable them from ever showing up on your streaming list.

Disabling Openload Stream Authorization

So one way of getting rid of this message is actually just disabling Openload from even showing up on your list of streaming servers. The steps below are for Krypton 17 and above using the Estuary Skin

Kodi Krypton 17 and Above

  • At your Kodi Home Screen
  • Select Settings [Cog Icon] Settings
  • Select System Settings
    02 - system settings
  • Hover over add-ons, then select manage dependencies
    03 - addons-manage dependencies
  • Select URLResolver
    04 - URLresolver
  • Select Configure
  • Looking for openload under the resolver list, normally its under resolver 3 or 4
  • Under Openload, turn the enabled function off!

That’s pretty much it. You’ll have Openload not appear on your streaming list and that should avoid the issue of getting the Openload stream authorization message

Pairing Your Device With Openload

Of course, this is the next method where if you wanted to actually keep and use Openload servers, then you will need to pair your device.

  • On a separate device that has access to a browser (Must be on the same network)
  • Go to
  • Check the reCAPTCHA box, I am not a robot
  • Once box is selected
  • Hit Pair
