Kodi is a media platform that was initially made for Xbox and called Xbox Media Center (XBMC). After a while, Kodi became available for computers and is now one of the most popular Media Center software. It can transform any PC, smart TV, or some other device into a personal media center, allowing users to stream videos, games, and music.
The software is open source, with tons of add-ons. While some are legal, others aren’t because they can offer you streaming of copyrighted content. Kodi itself is free, but using illegal add-ons could potentially get you in trouble. One person for the UK who sold set-top Kodi boxes equipped with add-ons offering to the free movies streaming and free sports streaming was charged with three offenses for against the UK’s Copyright, Design and Patents Act. So, if you use Kodi, be careful when installing illegal add-ons.
On the other hand, the software supports lots of handy, legal add-ons that can improve your media center experience. Let’s check out some of them.
A free online counterpart of cable channels. The add-on is available in US territories, and upon registration offers users access to content usually found on cable TV channels.
An add-on allowing you to view and organize the content in your Dropbox account. The add-on is basically a Dropbox manager for a large screen.
The main says it all. YouTube is an add-on allowing users to view as well as to upload content on their YouTube accounts. Just install it on your Kodi-enabled device and enjoy YouTube from a comfort of your chair.
