Stream authorization error is caused due to unauthorized streaming. Of course, most of the streaming source of kodi are unauthorized only. Most of the sources are hosted on some secret servers. They might have some downtime. So in order to enjoy uninterrupted streaming, we have to go to a trusted source. Most of the kodi users are streaming from these sources. So in order to control excess traffic, they came up with a plan of stream authorization.
In stream authorization concept, if the traffic is higher than the normal traffic it can handle. It will provide a URL to authorize our IP. We have to enter the shown URL in our browser. By doing so we will authorize our IP. And open the kodi and enjoy streaming for 4 hours. This is one of the ways to prevent unexpected server shutdown.
But each and every time, doing stuff like this is bit annoying. So as a Kodi user, we must know some of the tricks to escape from this stream authorization error. We highly suggest you to use VPN like IPVanish to hide your identity online and surf anonymously. Moreover we can use VPN in this trick to get streaming permission for more than 4 hours.

By authorizing stream from your IP
This is the most simple and legitimate way to stream the content from vidup.me/pair, thevideo.me/pair and tvad.me/pair. Just note the URL in error popup and enter it in your browser. Then it will show your IP address. Just click on activate streaming. After that, it will show that “Your IP has been authenticated for 4 hours”.
Some people might want uninterrupted streaming all over the day. In that case, Just use VPN to mask your IP. You can repeat the process with different IP. This time the masked IP will get authenticated. After 4 hours change the IP in your VPN and repeat the process.
By using URL resolver
