This is great, top quality app. Been using this for years now, phone, tablets, laptops and Tv's its great. Works anywhere with internet really, and obversly a little know-how. To any that says this app doesn't work, freezes or buffers and so on... you clearly shouldn't be using this app as you don't have the understanding to sort it out and keep it updated. You should go and use Netflix and Amazon, there made for idiot's you can't lose.
I honestly loved kodi... Atleast Until the krypton 17.3 update. At first it was okay not to complicated to use, but for some reason after a few months it slowly started failing me. At first it was the buffering, then it started to slow down when finding streams. I thought maybe it was my phone, but definitely not. Now I find NONE of the repositories I used to use work. I tried different add-ons, but still nothing!!
I have read a few reviews about videos not playing or addons not working properly. In fairness you have to understand that many addons have shut down recently or have moved to a different server. This has nothing to do with kodi as it is only a platform. I find kodi great and am grateful to the developers for their time spent on it. My advice for those having problems is to look for alternative addons.
Having problems when using headphones/ earphones on note 5 nougat. You can only hear noises when using the audio jack. Even just navigating the menu produce noises. Other video/audio players working fine. Sound is ok when using the built in speaker. I confirm that unplugging and plugging back the jack stops the noise. Hopefully will be fixed on next release.
Was Awesome! Then vrs. 17 came along and ssslllloooowwweeedddd way down! Ooppps. Still not sure what they did, but wow what a let down. Going back to 16 is a pain and then some but almost worth the trouble as vrs 17 (this one) really sucks. Sorry guys, I'm sure you've worked long and hard, but time to rethink what an update is actually supposed to be. Hint, should be better then the previous version, not worse! Keep trying, you'll get there.
Loved it at first. But y'all lemme tell you as soon as I downloaded the most recent update I started to hate it. I was jammin' out to some music loud with my headsets in, okay, and them I'm like "Hmm I wanna watch something" so I open up Kodi and the most startling screeching horrific static noise comes through my speakers. If I was a cat I woulda been down to four lives. Basically if this was GTA my armor would have been gone after that. Crazy af.
