Fine and Dandy is one of the newer add-ons that has some great quality streams available.  Brought to us by Dandy Media; this add-on works very well if you have any debrid accounts.  I am bringing you this install guide after spending some time playing around in this add-on.  I was turned onto it by one of the other member of Ares Team who had been quite impressed with it and after taking a look I would have to concur.  The goal in streaming is to find those 720 and 1080 resolution streams and with Fine and Dandy I have to admit I was able to find them quite easily.  You will find a screen shot from Pulp Fiction below so you can see how crystal clear this looks.

You can find the Fine and Dandy in Video > Video Add ons or Add-ons (open box)

We can access the add-on by clicking on Open or returning to the Main Menu and visiting the Video Add-ons Section.  Once you enter the Fine and Dandy add-on you will see several icons (depending on your view) from Most Popular Movies to Tv Show Menu.  I do want to let you know that I ran the add-on in Kodi 16.1 and everything worked well; however, when I tried in 17 nightly it would not bring up any content yet so we may need to be patient a little longer for this.

Fine & Dandy Main Menu

I went through a few of the menus and saw many movies I have enjoyed and a few I have still been waiting to watch.  The nice thing about the add-on is how the menu’s are set up.  Once you click on a title you will see just a few links and each one will tell you the quality you can expect as shown below:

Fine & Dandy Video Choices

For example on the image above you will have a choice of either 720p or 1080p for your streaming and if you have any of the debrid accounts you can click the links at the bottom to access the debrid links.  Real Debrid is a cheap paid service that gives you access to private links so typically you will find less people trying to pull off of the specific link and less chance of having buffering issues.  We will be covering Real Debrid accounts in a future post coming up soon.
