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.

Getting better and better. Tireless work by devs to keep the best android media handler up to par. Sure, it has it's quirks but if you learn how it works most if not all issues can be eradicated easily. I've found after 15 plus years from xbmc till the present, the key is don't overload the core with add-ons you don't need or use. Find ones that work for you thru trial and error and remove ones that don't. Keeping it uncluttered it will sing along with ease. Cuts the cord. It deserves 6 stars.

Without this app, my experience on my projector would be mediocre. This is the only app that allows me to move the videos (with black bars) to the lower end of the screen. When watching on a 184 inch screen, I don't end up hurting my neck, but I can now look straight. NO OTHER PLAYER ALLOWS THIS!! And then you have all the best features of a video player. So Thank You Kodi! Just one thing. I see the options to zoom in, but it doesn't work. Would be an icing on the cake if you could fix it.

This app used to work great on any Samsung phone I had, until now. Samsung S22 Ultra, and every time I open the app, I see 'preparing for first run' and I see the version info, and the opening picture, then it goes black. I uninstalled and tried downloading 19.4 from kodi.tv, same thing. I have it on my S7 tablet and firestick and it works fine. Just not my phone. Help would be much appreciated! And I will change my rating. I'll keep searching for a fix for now.
