Kodi overview

Kodi (was XBMC) is an award-winning free and open-source (GPL) software media player and entertainment hub that can be installed on Linux, OS X, 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.

Note: To install Kodi on OS X 10.9 Mavericks or later, you need to right-click the application after it has been installed and select "Open" from the list (this need only be done once). Alternatively, you can go to System Preferences -> Security & Privacy -> General. From there, unlock the lock at the bottom of the window and "Allow apps downloaded from: Anywhere." This second method is the preferred method, as you will no longer be bothered for future XBMC updates.

Wouldn't it be just fantastic if Kodi was able to remember screen size and position of its window on macOS?

Have had no issues with my 4k FireStick but my MacBook installs Matrix 19.1 but none of the new apps available on the Firestick are compatible. I reverted back to 18.9 and none of the repositories will load, same issue as with 19.1 not compatible....

Not very happy with version 19. They updated their Python version. It rendered most of the 3rd party addons unusable. The warning doesn't come til after the upgrade. Check to see if your addons are compatible. I ended up reverting back to version 18.9

I'm curious about this. I've never used Plex, or a media server per se, but I've been using VLC for quite a while. I can open VLC on my Mac and stream to my AppleTV, and there's an app for the AppleTV. But the AppleTV app is now badly broken, so I would like to be able to fetch content from another Mac's attached storage and play it on my TV. Is Kodi useful for that? Is it better than VLC, or are they apples and oranges?

I've used KODI in the past, and I have MrMC for Apple TV, which seems to be a clone. What I am curious about, since this discussion thread hasn't been updated lately is,: Is it true KODI is dead, or dying? I've recently seen a bunch of videos popping up on Youtube regarding KODI, and legal issues, and the development being shutdown. Was just wondering, how much truth there is in this, or is it just overblown hype? I don't use KDOI like I used to, so haven't followed real close.

Dear developers, the machine I tried to run this software is a Mac whose operating system is well-known and popular for its consistent user interface. I am not a 12 year old gamer kid who might appreciate your efforts to make your software look like some ego shooter from 2003. I am sorry to tell you that I wasn't able to stand its sight for more than a minute before I had to quit it and kick it out of my hard drive. Hence I didn't get round to explore its functionality at all.

As a media center Kodi by far is the best when you add on your selection of available repositories you have access to the largest available selection of media sources on the planet. I have had no issues with XBMC now named Kodi and I have used it going back to the days of Mountain Lion. I read some of the negative reviews and I have to laugh. Read the instructions people and then do your research for the repositories. Condemning one of the finest and free apps out there because you don't know how to use it is absurd.
