Kodi for Newbies

Posted by Ronald Ramirez on

Late to the party? did you find out that KODI has been out there all along? Well no worries we got you covered.

Here's some quick info from the developing team themselves:

"Kodi spawned from the love of media. It is an entertainment hub that brings all your digital media together into a beautiful and user friendly package. It is 100% free and open source, very customisable and runs on a wide variety of devices. It is supported by a dedicated team of volunteers and a huge community.

Kodi (formerly known as 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. Our forums and Wiki are bursting with knowledge and help for the new user right up to the application developer."                                         


As you can Kodi is an open source media player (open source means that the code is public, and people can alter it as they wish). Kodi itself is intended to be used for the purpose of organizing and playing your own media files. 

Kodi addons however, are not part of the intended of Kodi by the XBMC organization. However the reason you are probably here is because of the fact that the addons are what make Kodi as widely known as it is. Kodi addons are independently developed and are mostly used to “scrape” online content from different streaming web sites, which you may or may not be familiar with.

With the hundreds better yet thousands of Kodi addons currently available for installation, you'll have access to vast amount of data from all over the world. The addons give you access to movies, live television, tv shows and so much more.
