How To Set Up Fusion Installer On XBMC

Ads by Google

Install XBMC addons the easy way: use Fusion. This service gives you a quick way to browse, and install, XBMC repos from within the program itself.

We’ve shown you some amazing XBMC add-ons, and they’re not hard to install – especially if they’re in XBMC’s default repo. For many of the best add-ons, however, you’re going to want access to third-party repositories.

Installing these is straight forward: you need only download a ZIP file, then browse to it from within XBMC. But if you’d rather not close XBMC, open a browser and download a repo – or if you can’t, because your setup doesn’t include a keyboard and a web browser – Fusion can make things easier for you. Here’s how to set it up:

If you’re already playing with the recently announced Gotham beta, this might be useful. To summarize, the steps are:

  1. In the XBMC File Browser, add http://fusion.tvaddons.ag as a source.
  2. Head to “Install From Zip” under the Addon settings, as you normally would; you should see Fusion here.
  3. Install whatever repos you like.
  4. Install add-ons from these additional repos.

Obviously, in order for this to be useful, you’re going to need to know what’s in which repos – but if you’re interested in third-party repos, you probably know what you’re looking for already.

It’s also worth noting that Team-XBMC, which is behind XBMC itself, recommended you not use XBMC Fusion. If you use Fusion only to browse for and install repositories, however, you shouldn’t have any problems.

    When I go to install zip file and Open fusion, the repositories are not there, what am I doing wrong?

    • Justin Pot

      It’s possible that Fusion is down momentarily. If you typed the repo wrong, you’d see an error message.

    I have a Windows 8.1 tablet and get an’ import not found’ error in the ‘Config Wizard’. Help??

  • gretar

    ok thanks for the information.

  • gretar

    I always collect all the zip files for each addon just to be able to put all the repos from USB just by using the mouse. I have total installer zip and the superrepo zip file and many other zip files for many other repositories, so I can install it straight without writing anything to the add source section in file manager, but I am not able to find a zip for fusion and Xunitytalk, can anyone help me find the way to put fusion and xunity to zip folder, just to make it easy-er to install. thanks. It would be so much easy to install without having to go into file manager and add source manually. THANKS

      There’s no zip for Fusion: it’s an FTP server full of zip files. You could just download all the zip files on the server, though.
