Bring XBMC back

Negative Review by n-----
about Kodi Apr 2017

What used to be the greatest mediacenter for the first XBOX has turned into a nightmare. We all know the pros: it is free and not windows mediacenter.


-Requires more steps to enable "unknown sources" than Android
-Is slowly closing down: bands addons, implements source verfication and so on..let's face it they what to monetize
-The UX has been "reworked" by insane people, e.g. the Systemsetting have cute useless biiiig icons now but you won't be able to find anything.
-Adding an AddOn from Zip from a remote source takes about 500% longer than before.
-For over 10 years now people have been requesting basic functionality like adding an IPCamera stream...still not done

I guarantee it: there will be a payed subscription model before there will be an IP camera plugin.

Time to fork.


Love It!

my parents have this on their fire tv and we use it all the time but the downside is TERRIBLE picture and sound quality

Me and the wife use Kodi, used to use Plex but much prefer the overall performance difference with Kodi.

It's awesome. I use it every day. Got a faster internet connection and the videos load faster.


Best Media Server App

Positive Review by hankthetankitguy
about Kodi Apr 2016

I've used this program to run files on a media server. It works really well! It also has a few other great apps that make it easy to view content on your TV. In a sense this is what I hoped things like Roku and Apple TV would be.


For Me This Is My Media Server Go-To

about Kodi Mar 2016

I don't use Kodi as a standard Media Player, I use it for my server. It works seamlessly and audio/video quality is nearly perfect. My only complaint is that it isn't as user friendly as it could be. I think a few alterations to the layout and overall design could make it easier for people of all skill levels to get into!


Very Underrated In A Sense

about Kodi Feb 2016

Great tool but it gets a lot of things right that others don't. For instance, being universal across all my devices is not only something I expect, but it handles it with a great level of technical confidence.


Only media player that gets surround sound right

Positive Review by balupton
about Kodi Oct 2014

After having tried every media player for OSX and Windows here, Kodi/XBMC is the only one that consistently gets surround sound output for AAC/AC3/DTS/Dolby correct for my iMac with Logitech Z5500 speakers.
