ExpressVPN works with Real Debrid.
In fact, ExpressVPN is one of the few VPNs that Real Debrid lists as cooperative.
This means Real Debrid is aware of ExpressVPN IP addresses and willingly allows them to access its service without issues.
Still, the setup can get complicated. So keep reading for detailed steps!
How to Set Up Real Debrid With ExpressVPN?
- Download and install the ExpressVPN app for your device. I’ll download the Windows app for this tutorial.
- Log in to the ExpressVPN app with your activation code (sent to your email).
- Enable the kill switch to stop other Real Debrid users, copyright strikers, or your ISP from tracking your P2P activities if the VPN connection drops. Go to Options > General > Network Lock > Stop all internet traffic if the VPN disconnects unexpectedly.
- Select any ExpressVPN server. Most ExpressVPN IP addresses are white-listed by Real Debrid. If in doubt, double-check on the Real Debrid site.
- Log in to your Real Debrid account and convert torrents into direct downloads without depending on seeders or long waits. Otherwise, stream directly on Kodi in HD without ISP throttling!
ExpressVPN Real Debrid Not Working? (Troubleshooting)
By default, the ExpressVPN Smart Location feature will automatically pick the best VPN server with the fastest speeds for Real Debrid.
However, numerous things determine download speeds.
Therefore, to find the ExpressVPN server with the best download speeds, you need to:
- Pick a server location closest to your physical location.
- Run speed tests and connect to the fastest result.
I wanted to know how fast the speeds were on a Real Debrid download versus a normal torrent download while connected to ExpressVPN’s Egypt server (closest to me).
I compiled the results into the table below (note that I used the Lightway protocol):
|Connection Type||File Size||Download Speed||Download Time|
|ExpressVPN Only||151 MB||23.74 Mbps||82 seconds|
|ExpressVPN + Torrent Download||151 MB||18.97 Mbps||78 seconds|
|ExpressVPN + Real Debrid Direct Download||151 MB||22.29 Mbps||38 seconds|
As you can see, the ExpressVPN Real Debrid combination gave me the best download speeds and the shortest time to download a 151MB single file.
