Kodi® media center is an award-winning free and open source cross-platform software media player and entertainment hub for digital media for HTPCs (Home theater PCs). It uses a 10-foot user interface designed to be a media player for the living-room, using a remote control as the primary input device. Its graphical user interface (GUI) allows the user to easily browse and view videos, photos, podcasts, and music from a harddrive, optical disc, local network, and the internet using only a few buttons.

The official Kodi version does not contain any content what so ever. This means that you should provide your own content from a local or remote storage location, DVD, Blu-Ray or any other media carrier that you own. Additionally Kodi allows you to install third-party plugins that may provide access to content that is freely available on the official content provider website. Any other means of watching illegal content which would otherwise be paid for is not endorsed or approved by Team Kodi. 

Estuary is the new standard skin and is designed to be fast and user friendly. 
With the skin Estouchy, Kodi has now been enhanced to better work with larger 5" or up phones and tablets. Kodi is not designed or recommended for use with smaller phones. 

- Kodi does not supply or include any media or content.
- Users must provide their own content or install one of the third party plug-ins
- Kodi has no affiliation with any third-part plug-in or add-on provider what so ever.

    ak cakes Yes! The update fixed everything! Now working way faster and everything working in my galaxy s9 running on os10. Nice job and well done. I will update the firestick and my s5 with this update. Just installed 18.8 into firestick 2nd gen. WOW! What an upgrade! Everything flys and working great. Again, Nice job and well done!

    ak bear Custom keyboard screws with Android TV. They use a custom keyboard, not Android's. This causes massive issues with Android TV devices, making it hard to enter any text input at a reasonable speed. Use the standardized android input field. It's there for a reason. Not only that, the app itself is a gaudy mess.

    ak Needs to be addapted to mobile. The app works just like the PC version. There hasn't been any attempt that I can see to change anything, consequently the screens are very tiny. I uninstalled it after using it one time as I can't see myself using it. Too bad, as I love the pc version.

  5. jONATHANpORTLAND-avatar



    lee I can't imagine my day without it. I wish it had more menu/item descriptions and the functionality was more PC like (hover, right-click item menu, etc..) while still using it on an A. tv box with a hand-held keyboard & touchpad. You know just the run of the mill basics... 🙄 😈😇

    ak boots Excellent! Have a TV antenna at 45' on a tower and a remote computer with a TV tuner Hauppauge dualUSB and NextPVR. Hardwire CAT5e running back to my house. This works great for viewing the TV on it. Over 50 channels, sometimes close to 100 depending on propagation!

    firestick Such a buggy buggy application I don't know from one day to the next 1 I open it if it's gonna crash on me and not let me do any work on it or had some of the resources to it so having said that I just delete it and there's other things out there that are just as good I love using the fire stick so Cody I guess probably was good at 1 time but now it's a it's a dead Application

    ak island App is not sending HD audio signals(dolby true hd or dts hdma( from android TV to AV receiver. My TV has earc feature and it is connected with av receiver which has earc option. Any options to include it. Other than that, this app is very good.

    e shane Because of the custom keyboard and no copy paste feature it is practically impossible to configure access to any servers, home storage or streams. Please make using the normal keyboard an option.

  11. Hount-avatar



    Best video player ever. It might be overkill for me because I only play video from local storage. But the subtitles position is the best. It's not like other video player who has large subtitles and stretched subtitles font.

    The app just opens to a black screen. I've reinstalled multiple times and it's the same every time. I approve the permissions and nothing happens after that. I can open a video in Kodi if I open from a file browser, but have no playback controls.

    Updated review - Still doesn't currently work at 120hz. You just get a black screen until i drop my settings to 60hz. Kodi don't seem interested in fixing this as its been present for at least 6 months

    From an engineer's point of view this application is a GUI and application architecture nightmare, but from a practical point of view based on doing the job, well KODI / XMBC definitely works for me on Xbox, Android, Android-TV and Windows. So kudos to the team. Cheers from Canada.

I'm gonna get an RD account and see if that helps with streaming but if not, I'm washing my hands of all this once and for all, for good. Hundreds upon hundreds of hours wasted, cuz of greed and deception. Time I can never get back. Good luck people and use this app wisely!

    Plays everything I throw at it. Has a built-in file browser. Sound sync works correctly, (most players don't sync correctly.) Though x265 files play choppy on most devices, that's the hardware. Extremely configurable and frequent. The bad; vlc has auto find server. Kodi doesn't, so one has to configure their server information themselves. The gui may be confusing at first. The text on most skins is very small on my small TV.

  78. Farq Narkle-avatar

    Gave it a shot but found it wasn't like a mobile app at all. Doesn't use the phones keyboard making copy/paste impossible as well as very hit and miss when trying to enter letters, It's stuck in landscape mode as well and all together the interface is somewhat limited and clunky. A shame really as the idea is probably good, just badly executed and needs a complete re-development for mobiles.

    Lack of Subtitles support in UTF 8 is really disappointing. I am part of a voluntary subtitle creating group. Seeing our hard worked Subtitle as Squares in Kodi is really disappointing. Same time Plex Jellyfin are playing Subtiles very well. I always thought that on next update it will be okay. But never sort out. Seems like developers are not at all interested in Subtitle support.

    Every now and then I give Kodi the chance to prove its point, and all it does is fail. There's always a time consuming issue to figure out and solve. Maybe I'll check it back in a couple of months, maybe I'll have given it up or even found sth which actually works.

    Kodi version leia , screensaver . When u watch a movie off hdd for example and u pause it by pressing the pause on the remote of nvidia shield pro 2019 model. The movie will pause and then after 1 minute it will go into a black screensaver or in my case i have the stars screensaver. But what i found is that if u pause the movie using the onscreen pause the screen only dims. It does not go into the stars screensaver mode just dims only. I also have dim screen disabled. Can u please fix this.

    Buffers way too much. Very slow going between different scenes within the program. Very poorly programmed in handling resources. If this is open source I wish somebody with more programming experience takes it over and clean up all the bugs. It buffers within the programming it's self because it's so poorly programmed.

If there were clearer and honest to god good instructions then maybe id give it a better review

    Playlists are awful and so much more complicated than they should be, Navigation is terrible! Some video playback from HDD breaks up (squares/blocking) but it doesn't break up if played via VLC on a PC so it's not the file. This is on an Android TV box x96air

    Best and most versatile media player for android devices. Phone, TV, Set top box, Desktop, Laptop, Fire Stick or Raspberry Pi. This app can be installed on just about anything with an OS, a screen and some type of storage to hold the app. Can also be installed on Raspberry Pi as it's own operating system so that Kodi is all the device runs. Formerly XBMC. This app has been one of the greatest media players for a very long time. Stable. Fast. Highly configurable, easy to use and well supported.

    For music it completely sucks. You can create playlists but don't add the wrong song or forget a song as you will not be able to edit, even though there is an edit option. It's hard to find and get to the playlist once you exit the add. Once you find the playlist again it's impossible getting it open as everything you tap on it the page goes to something else and if you click on anything on that screen it won't load.

    I can't fathom why Google Play does not have the latest version of Kodi. That would be 18.6 which is available via downloader on Firestick. I went to Android TV specifically to have Google Play and now I find it a disappointment. Overall Android 10.0 is a nightmare and this Kodi version does not support my favorite builds because they are updated to run on Kodi 18.6

    I love my Kodi! Works like a charm! Don't know how I ever lived without it... lol. It takes a minute to get it all figured out and put together, but it's well worth the time and effort that's put into building it. I'll never be without it again. I highly recommend this app. Thank you to all the devs who make it possible!

    love this app and thre 3rd party wizard applications its an amazingly awesome app that gives you access to a vast amount of very expensive material for free or very low cost. DO NOT LISTEN to posts that reflect badly on KODI for the fact that it is a bogus app and doesnt work. IT works beautifuly you just have to know how to work iot and it takes some practice

    Installed on Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra and after accepting file access permission just goes to a black screen. Cannot change with reinstall or clearing cache etc. Needs fix Update. After doing my own research the issue is with ANY display refresh settings over 60hz so make sure you lower your refresh to install this and it works.

    Adding to the folks w/ Pixel 4XLs... Open the app, grant permissions, and a blank black scrren appears. Doesn't appear to have any method to access any settings or menus. Will investigate activities to see if I can force something to work, and will post update. Still nothing. Sadly uninstalling.

    Just straight up does not work on Chromebook. Have to use some weird combination of trackpad clicks + touchscreen, and even then, basic navigation is a nightmare.

    My BF found this app recently. It has quiet a few new movies on it. Some l don't think have been in theater's yet. It's crazy. Its really neat, because we don't have the app on our RoKu. Only on our phones. Which is nice for personal use, but not for a movie night lol. My BF's phone can cast Whatever is on his phone screen to our TV via Blutooth. It can be a pic, movie, ANYTHlNG that shows up on his screen will show on the TV.....I'm Jelous lol.

    Please add transcoding to E-AC3 (DD+) for Android TV, so many films in DTS-HD Master Audio have 7.1 channels and new TV's like Samsung or others don't allow DTS passthrough, transcoding to DD+ 7.1 or 7.1.2 for Atmos channels would be great.

    Good enough for playing songs from my Windows PC over SMB. The GUI is not intuitive. Takes time to understand. The music player can suddenly stop in the middle of a song for some seconds a jump to next one.

    Hi Dev, after the new update. Every time I open Kodi, I am getting a black screen. My phone is 120hz, now I need to set 60hz in order to open Kodi. Please help to fix this.

    Every other app I've tried works with my Windows machine to set up a media server. Except for Kodi. I love it, it's 10 better than anything else.. But unfortunately it no longer works for the Mibox with a windows machine as the content machine.

    Big fan of Kodi using it on previous Android phones and TVs, even on Raspberry Pi. Unfortunately it doesn't work on Pixel 4. Loads with a black screen after initial load and accepting media access. Restarted, removed, reinstalled... No difference :(

    It is a bit slow for me but other than that it is fantastic download it if you have fast or medium internet because you can see free movies,tv shows,cartoons,music and more I recommend that you get it now

    Anyone who gives KODI a bad review citing the inability to connect to (( whatever )) is wrong. KODI will connect to virtually anything via any network protocol. Like any powerful app, it requires a bit of time and thought to set up, so it's not for the lazy or stupid, but if you want a power packed media player, this is it. if you want an app that does everything for you, keep looking.

  136. Pouya-avatar



    As others already mentioned the app goes to black screen on 90hz or higher refresh rates and kodi team developers "demand" other people to fix their app if they want "higher refresh rates than 60" because it's open source. Welp there are lots of other "open source" apps that are not stuck in the last decade

    AMAZING!!! You developers should be super proud. Using this app on our nvidia shield and it blows every other media app out of the water. Supports all high end audio and video codexs. Thanks so much for this amazing app!!!

    Well I finally got it fully up and running. It took the better part of 2 hours to find the right addon that works but at least now I can watch whatever I want on my phone. I would recommend the media app if you're watching on firestick. Much easier to figure out.

    Absolutely brilliant!! Thanks to all the people who make this app great. I use Kodi every day and it flawlessly plays all my movie files, including MKV, HEVC, 4K, and HDR. It works perfectly with my new Nvidia Shield TV.

    Frame rate drops on my Vox 55adj798b android 6 tv when subtitle is shown (4k hdr video). When there is no subtitle it plays perfectly. Also Easter Europe Windows subtitle format is not supported? For some videos I hear only sound, but screen is black (except the subtitles) .

    Bad every add on never works no matter which version, more trouble than its worth. Will take you countless hours just to get a decent addon then when you finally grt it work they release a new version which is usually a sub par than what it was before.

    Simple, this app was made to be customized. That unfortunately comes at the cost of usability, but with enough efforts, anything is possible. Just... don't use it to pirate stuff. That type of use is not supported by the developpers, because it's illigal. Plus, you need to have third party application to do that, so if you complain that it is too complicated, you are probably trying to install a third party addon. The only real problem is the keyboard. Overall, great, powerfull app.

    Kodi 18.0 was not the "upgrade" I was looking for. The inability to play split archives is a dealbreaker for me. Sideloaded version 17.6 is where my Kodi experience will be from now on (that version is worth four stars). A pity for the developers who want to get their work into users' hands. Even if they fix version 18, I am unlikely to notice.

    Just did the Kodi 19 update, Absolutely hate it. I loved it before this update, was simple and easy to find anything I wanted to watch... now however that is not the case. Hard to find shows I watched before, hard to get it to play anything and it crashes all the time. It doesn't show a description of the movie/TV show. Been trying to get it to play one TV show for almost an hour now, and only been able to watch one episode since 5am. Its terrible!

    The display resolution is weird, unable to change the resolution at all, even I have hooked up to a 4k UHD tv, and the source file is a 4k UHD and my device had already set to 4k output , but my TV keep receiving only 720P signal, not even 1080P!

    love it when it works. sometimes the add-ons disappear and i have to redownload a build. it's not too complicated because i have a kodi configurator but it can be frustrating. it also takes a LOT of room to install the app and the build that makes it work. otherwise, great app. i tell all my friends about it. if these few small issues could somehow be remedied, I'd give 5 stars in a heartbeat but they are not serious enough to make the app an uninstall.

    This app sucks dick. Wasted like 40 minutes of my life trying to put on an add on just for it to not click open onto links. No add ons work. None of it does. It only gets as far as title but wont actually open up to links. Waste of time, this whole app not worth the potential legal issues that for sure.
