What is Kodi or XBMC?

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 or Xbox Media Center) 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. Due to legal issues with naming and Microsoft as of version 14 of Kodi it has been renamed from XBMC to Kodi.

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. Their forums and Wiki are bursting with knowledge and help for the new user right up to the application developer.

Disclaimer: Kodi does not provide any media itself. Users must provide their own content or manually point Kodi to third party online services. The Kodi project does not provide any support for bootleg video content.

The real power of Kodi comes from the vast selection of user created Add-ons. There are Add-Ons for popular web services, applications and scripts. See which ones are currently available (legit)

 

Kodi Add-ons are made in Python

The legit and non legit add-ons in Kodi are what make Kodi do its magic.

Non-legit Plugins such as Exodus, Exodus Redux, Exodus Ver 8, Genesis, Genesis Reborn, Covenant, The Magic Dragon, Nemesis, Incursion, Yoda, Maverick TV, Sports Devil, Gen-X, Movie Theatre Butter, Tubi TV, FirstON, FilmRise, The Kratos, cCloud TV, Entertain Me, 13 Clowns, Tempest, Neptune Rising, Poseidon, and Gurzil to name a few of the millions.

These plugins are coded in Python and designed to scrape the Internet for high definition, high quality movies and TV shows. The legality’s of such activity might be prohibited in your country. Please be aware of the laws and regulations of your jurisdiction. 

When using Kodi to run any of the aforementioned non-legit add-ons or any other non-legit Kodi add-on we advise you to use a VPN (Virtual Private Network) proxy such as IPVanish. We do not receive kick-backs from this sponsor. We chose this sponsor because based on our personal tests its the best VPN proxy to use with Kodi.

So we know what Kodi is and what it can do for you. We know to create Kodi Add-ons we use Python. So lets start making add-ons for Kodi.

About the Author: Bernard Aybout

In the land of bytes and bits, a father of three sits, With a heart for tech and coding kits, in IT he never quits. At Magna's door, he took his stance, in Canada's wide expanse, At Karmax Heavy Stamping - Cosma's dance, he gave his career a chance. With a passion deep for teaching code, to the young minds he showed, The path where digital seeds are sowed, in critical thinking mode. But alas, not all was bright and fair, at Magna's lair, oh despair, Harassment, intimidation, a chilling air, made the workplace hard to bear. Management's maze and morale's dip, made our hero's spirit flip, In a demoralizing grip, his well-being began to slip. So he bid adieu to Magna's scene, from the division not so serene, Yet in tech, his interest keen, continues to inspire and convene.
