Kodi has grown to become one of the most popular media streaming apps, and you can use it to watch movies, TV shows, live TV, sports, and more. It is available for your PC, Android, Apple TV, and even on the Amazon Fire TV Stick and the Apple TV. However, like other apps, it also has its own set of drawbacks. If you want to get rid of the ads and stream content without buffering, you need to install a Kodi build.
In this tutorial, we’re going to go through the process of installing the Duff Light Kodi Build. It’s a great build with many bonus features such as Live TV, Live Sports, PVR, and an amazing list of add-ons, including the ever popular Exodus. In this tutorial, we’ll also be installing the latest version of the build, which will ensure that you get the latest updates and add-ons. This build is a great way to enjoy Kodi’s best features and we highly recommend you give it a try.
In this tutorial I’ll show you how to install the DuffLight version on Kodi 18.9 and Kodi 17.6. This build is particularly suitable for the Amazon FireStick, but can also be installed on other Kodi devices such as Android TV, Android boxes, Android mobile phones, Windows, Mac and others. It is preferable to use it with remotely controlled devices.
DuffLight is a simple construction with all the important features you would expect from a construction. The designers have reduced the non-essential elements to allow for easy and quick assembly. That’s why it works so well on the FireStick and other devices with moderate hardware configurations. With the construction, you can watch all types of video content. It comes pre-loaded with dozens of high-quality add-ons. We will learn more about this construction. Read on!

- This version comes with many popular and functional video add-ons.
- DuffLite is fast.
- The build offers a clean and neat interface that is both user-friendly and pleasing to the eye.

Attention KODI users: please read before continuing
Kodi addons / modules offer unlimited streaming content, but can also get you in legal trouble if you get caught watching movies / TV shows / sports for free. Kodi users are strongly advised to always connect a VPN when streaming online. A good Kodi VPN can hide your identity, bypass government surveillance, block content, and ISP throttling (which also contributes to buffer-free streaming).
I use ExpressVPN, which is the fastest and most secure VPN. It is very easy to install on any device, including the Amazon FireStick. Get 3 months free and save 49% on annual plans. There is also a 30 day money back guarantee. If you are not satisfied, you can always ask for a refund.

Before you start streaming video with Kodi addons or modules, I want to warn you that everything you stream on Kodi is visible to your ISP and the government. This means that streaming copyrighted content (free movies, TV shows, live broadcasts and sports) can lead to legal problems.
Fortunately, there is a reliable way to hide all your streaming activities from your ISP and the government. All you need is a good VPN for Kodi. A VPN masks your original IP address and helps you bypass Internet monitoring, ISP restrictions, and geographic content limitations.
Personally, I use and recommend ExpressVPN, the fastest and most secure VPN. It is compatible with all types of applications and streaming devices.
OPINION: We do not encourage copyright infringement. But what if you accidentally upload content from an illegal source? It is not always easy to distinguish between a legal and an illegal source.
So before you start streaming on Kodi, read here how to get VPN protection in 3 easy steps.
Step one: Purchase your ExpressVPN subscription HERE. It comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. This means you can use it for free for the first 30 days. If you are not satisfied with the service (which is unlikely), you can ask for a full refund.
Step two: Click HERE to download and install the ExpressVPN application on your streaming device. If you are using a FireStick, I have included the exact steps below, starting with step 4.
Step three: Click on the power icon to connect to the VPN server. That’s it. Now your connection is secure with the fastest and best VPN for Kodi.
The steps to install Kodi VPN on Fire TV devices are described below. If you have other broadcast devices, follow steps 1 to 3 above.
Step four: Sign up for ExpressVPN HERE (if you are not already a subscriber).
Step 5: Go to the Fire TV Stick home screen. Click the Search button and then the Search option (see figure below).
Step six: Type expressvpn into the search bar and select when it appears.
Seventh step: Click on the Download button.
Step 8: Open the ExpressVPN application and log in using the username and password you created when you purchased your ExpressVPN subscription.
Step 9: Click on the power icon to connect to the VPN server. That’s it. Now your FireStick is protected with the fastest VPN.
How to use DuffLight Build
Here is the Kodi home screen after installing the DuffLight version. Looks good to me.
Message: Let the build update its add-ons when you run it for the first time.
DuffLight is a minimal and lightweight design. This makes it an ideal construction for the FireStick and other low power devices.
The layout of this building is quite similar to most buildings: The menu bar runs from left to right. However, there are some differences in how you handle the assembly.
The first thing you will notice is that the DuffLight version does not have a sub-menubar linked to the main menu bar. You call up a submenu, select a menu item and click on it (or press the navigation key down).
As in the image below, I selected Movies and unfolded it to get a submenu.
The submenu shows movie-related addons and other options like Authorize RD.
Message: If you have a version of Duff Light Kodi on Mac or Windows, you will notice that a small popup replaces the mouse pointer: Careful. The mouse is not supported, please disable it. This card is indeed primarily designed for touch screens and remote control devices. However, the clicks will still work and you can still use the build on your computer. Although it’s not very comfortable.
There is not much interest in this construction. To keep it light, the developers have kept the number of features to a minimum. But I don’t mind. Some versions have tons of features that we barely use or don’t think are important.
The above steps will help you install the DuffLight version on Kodi. While this build works on all devices that support Kodi, it is particularly well suited to the FireStick because of its small size. The build works on my FireStick device with almost no hiccups or lag. Give it a try!
