KODI is a free and open source (GPL) software media center for playing any digital contents like videos, music, pictures, games etc.
Kodi runs on many platforms like Windows, OS X, Android, iOS.
NOTE: – Kodi comes with no contents. You need to provide your own content from any of the media like remote storage location, DVD, Blu-Ray etc. In addition to this, Kodi allows you to install third-party plugins and add-ons that will enable you to stream any digital contents online.
DISCLAIMER: – Watching or listening to illegal or pirated content which would otherwise need to be paid for is not endorsed or approved by Team Kodi.
Kodi 17 Krypton is the latest version when i was writing this article.
Here am going to show you how to install, set up, configure a plugin and add-ons and at last streaming the contents online.
Step 1 – Installing Kodi Application
Head over to https://kodi.tv/download/ and select “Get it on Windows 10” if you are using Windows 10 OS or else select “installer” if you are using any other Windows OS.
Follow the onscreen instructions to install the Kodi application.
Step 2 – Get Familiar with UI
At the top left, you have three options; Power options, settings, and search option.
Settings have got many options to manage everything in KODI.
Step 3 – Setting up the KODI
Before jumping into the setup, Go to Settings>System settings>Add-ons and turn on the unknown resources.
Once it is done, We can move on to setting up our KODI.
We have just added the file source. Again, there are lots of file sources available and feel free to explore and get the best ones.
Now we need to add an Add-on and it is a very important step.
Go back to the main screen, select “Add-ons” and click on the add-on explorer at the extreme left corner. Select “Install from Zip file“>.fusion>begin here>plugin.program.indigo-1.0.2.zip.
After clicking on “plugin.program.indigo-x.x.x.zip, wait for 1-2 minutes.
At this point of time, you might not be able to move your cursor that means it is installing the necessary files from the repository. Have some patience and wait for 1-2 minutes and it will automatically take you to the previous screen once the necessary files were installed.
Now Return to the Home screen, select add-ons and click on Indigo. Here select Addon Installer>Featured Addons>Exodus>Install Exodus.
Exodus is the best Add-on available right now. As I mentioned before, feel free to explore as many add-ons as you can and install the best ones.
Here am using Exodus as I am getting almost everything from it.
That is it! Now we can stream any TV shows or movies.
When you open any section, you have several categories/genre to choose the content from or else you can also search for the content you are looking for.
