Free Kodi Alternatives for Raspberry Pi

Kodi's media library and playing functionality is second to none, with the ability to index and transcode your favorite audiovisual content with relative ease. Though Small Plex iconPlex also functions as a media player alternative to Kodi, its true strength lies in its ability to act as an efficient and effective local media server, whereas Kodi excels at being both a single machine and local network-based media player. In addition, Kodi's support for Internet Protocol television (IPTV) enables its users to enjoy live TV from the comfort of the app.

Though Kodi has the ability to stream media over a local network, there are alternatives with more robust network streaming abilities to peruse in order to get the best of both worlds when needed.
