What is Kodi?

Kodi (previously named XBMC) is an award-winning free and open source (GPL) software media player and entertainment hub that can be installed on Linux, OSX, Windows, iOS, and Android, featuring a 10-foot user interface for use with televisions and remote controls. It allows users to play and view most videos, music, podcasts, and other digital media files from local and network storage media and the internet. You can download Kodi from the official website.

 

Movies & Series

Kodi can do Movies too! Supporting all the main video formats including streamable online media, Kodi can import, browse and play your movie collection with ease.

The TV Shows library supports episode and season views with posters or banners, watched tags, show descriptions and actors. Great for keeping track of your progress.

 

Watch & Listen

Kodi can play all your music including mp3, flac, wav and wma formats. It has cue sheet, tag reading support and smart playlists for ultimate control of your music collection.

Import pictures into a library and browse the different views, start a slideshow, sort or filter them all using your remote control.

Skins

Kodi allows you to complete change the whole appearance of the GUI interface. Due to the highly customisable skinning engine you are almost able to change every aspect of it’s looks and feel. By utilising different colours, images and menu structures you can create a stunning interface that matches your needs as a complete entertainment or information platform.

Web Interfaces

Interact with Kodi using its JSON-RPC based remote interface. This brings loads of possibilities for remote controls, web browsers and 3rd party tools to take Kodi to the next level.

 

Addons

The real power of XBMC comes from the vast selection of user created Add-ons that are available though the official repositories and, of course, SuperRepo. There are Add-Ons for popular web services, applications and scripts. 

 

UPnP

With UPnP compatibility you can stream to and from any other XBMC instances and play to other UPnP compatible devices in your home with ease. Have one UPnP master device and use other XBMC instances as clients which automatic keeps you watched status and library up-to-date. You can also now import from uPnp sources to synchronize your data inside instances of XBMC.
