In case the above command didn’t solve the issue of dependency and you are still getting an error of –

“libfdk-acc1 ( >=0.1.5)  but it is not installable” then run below two commands:

wget http://mirrors.kernel.org/ubuntu/pool/multiverse/f/fdk-aac/libfdk-aac1_0.1.6-1_amd64.deb

sudo apt install ./libfdk-aac1_*_amd64.deb

 

 

Step 6: Now, again run the installation command that is:

sudo apt install ./stremio*amd64.deb
Install Stremio on Ubuntu 20.04
Install Stremio on Ubuntu 20.04

Step 7: Go to Ubuntu 20.04 applications and search for this media streaming application.

Step 8: Sign up either using the Email ID or Facebook profile.

Sign up Stremio app on Linux-min

Step 9: Once you logged in, click on three icons given on the top right side and select Add-ons.

Enable Add-ons of Stremio-min

Step 10: Select the category you want the related add-ons to be added.

Step 11: Scroll and click on the green color Install buttons. You can add the one source that you want to use or just install all if you are not sure about it.

Install Add-ons
Install Add-ons

Step 12: Again go to the Home of the Stremio app and either search or select the movie or series you want to watch.

Step 13: A couple of sources will appear from where you can play the particular media file you want. However, some of them would be slow while others fast. Therefore, you have to check and play them one by one. Once the playback started you can enjoy it.

Furthermore, we can use the external player and Open subtitles on it as well.

Turn on Subtitle-min

So, this was the quick Stremio installation tutorial for Ubuntu Linux.
