Kodi (formerly known as XBMC) is an award-winning free and open source software (GPL) entertainment center and media player that can be installed on Linux, OSX, Windows, iOS, and Android, with a 10-foot user interface for use with televisions and remote controls. It enables users to play and view most videos, music, podcasts, and other digital media files from local and network storage media and the Internet.
Features and highlights
Kodi 64 bit can play all your music including mp3, flac, wav and wma formats. It has a cheat sheet, tagging support, and smart playlists for maximum control of your music collection.
Kodi can make movies too! By supporting all major video formats including streamable online media, Kodi can import, browse, and play your movie collection with ease.
The TVShow library supports viewing of episodes and seasons with posters or banners, viewing labels, program descriptions, and actors. Excellent for keeping track of your progress.
Import images to a library and explore the different views, start a slide show, sort or filter them all with your remote control.
Kodi allows you to watch and record live TV, all from the GUI interface. It works with several popular backends, including MediaPortal, MythTV, NextPVR, Tvheadend, and many more.
The true power of the media player comes from the wide selection of user-created plugins that are available through the repositories. There are plugins for popular web services, applications, and scripts.
Interact with the software using its JSON-RPC based remote interface. This provides many possibilities for remote controls, web browsers, and third-party tools to take the program to the next level.
With UPnP support, you can stream to and from any other Kodi instance and play on other UPnP-compatible devices in your home with ease.
With support for hundreds of remote controls, CEC-compliant TVs, or one of the newest smartphone and tablet apps, the software lets you control your media your way.
Note: Kodi does not provide any media by itself. Users must provide their own content or manually point this software to third-party online services. The Kodi project does not provide any support for pirated video content.
