About this app

Kodi® media center is an award-winning free and open source cross-platform software media player and entertainment hub for digital media for HTPCs (Home theater PCs). It uses a 10-foot user interface designed to be a media player for the living-room, using a remote control as the primary input device. Its graphical user interface (GUI) allows the user to easily browse and view videos, photos, podcasts, and music from a harddrive, optical disc, local network, and the internet using only a few buttons.



IMPORTANT:
The official Kodi version does not contain any content what so ever. This means that you should provide your own content from a local or remote storage location, DVD, Blu-Ray or any other media carrier that you own. Additionally Kodi allows you to install third-party plugins that may provide access to content that is freely available on the official content provider website. Any other means of watching illegal content which would otherwise be paid for is not endorsed or approved by Team Kodi.


Estuary is the new standard skin and is designed to be fast and user friendly.
With the skin Estouchy, Kodi has now been enhanced to better work with larger 5" or up phones and tablets. Kodi is not designed or recommended for use with smaller phones.



Disclaimer:
- Kodi does not supply or include any media or content.
- Users must provide their own content or install one of the third party plug-ins
- Kodi has no affiliation with any third-part plug-in or add-on provider what so ever.
- We do not endorse the streaming of copyright protected material without permission of the copyright holder.
- In order to upgrade from a previous version you must have installed an official released version by Team Kodi. Any other version may cause failure to upgrade.

I've been using Kodi for 7yrs now. There's a bit of a learning curve when you 1st set it up. It seems like a daunting task but it really is simple. Reading a set up guide is easy enough for beginners you don't need to watch dozens of videos to figure it out. There's nothing better. I have a plex media server and 3 other streaming services that I don't use. It works perfectly on my PCs and shield tv however no longer works on my ZFold Goes straight to black screen. Hopefully there's a patch soon

Worked ok with earlier versions but the latest is terrible. These comments are about how this works going over to an older "smart" TV. It can't seem to find anything on my tablet even though I tell it right where to find it. I cannot get it to show photos at all as the interface doesn't give you the choice just video and music and music has never worked. Even though I set it to "play next video automatically" it just goes back to the directory which takes about two minutes to reload. out of room

Over all I think the app is good. Like the add-ons. Only problem is on mobile devices where the touch screen is not at its best. Could not navigate smoothly. Hard to move because it doesn't go by touch but works like an invisible mouse. And when you have pop up menu it goes away when you go to another app and come back. If you want to copy a text from another app then come back and input or try to paste on the pop-up menu you can't. Makes it a little challenging
