Prerequisites for installing Ivacy Addon on OpenELEC

  • You must have an Ivacy VPN Account. If you don’ have one, you can buy it by clicking here.
  • A media Box based on OpenELEC
  • An active internet connection
  • If you are using OpenELEC version 6, then you must first add OpenVPN Add-on, in order for Ivacy VPN to work. The process of installing OpenElec is provided in the tutorial below.
  • For this tutorial, we assume that you have a Raspberry Pi unit with OpenELEC installed, or any other OpenELEC based hardware for example Wetek Play; and are able to access the device directly via an attached monitor and keyboard, and that you have a USB drive (or drives) attached to it (if you need to download some files through addons).
