Alternatives to Kodi for Android with any license

  • Plex

    Plex bridges the gap between your computer and your home theater, doing so with a visually appealing user interface that provides instant access to your media. Plex can play a wide range of video, audio and photo formats as well as online streaming audio and video. The real power of Plex is found in its library features: Organize your media into versatile libraries, automatically retrieve metadata from the Internet, and display your libraries using one of the visually stunning skins.

    • As already mentioned, a streaming platform isn't an alternative to a media player. Guest • Aug 2017 • 26 agrees and 7 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Plex is a server program, kodi is a media program for end users. Where they can overlap in use, they are not the same kind of program. Guest • Mar 2017 • 25 agrees and 12 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Kodi is a media client. Plex is a media server. Guest • Oct 2017 • 5 agrees and 3 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • I have been using plex for over a year now. It's over all the best media server/client available on the market. I have no doubt. I will be using plex the next coming years. Guest • Dec 2017 • 1 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Plex is server & client software whereas Kodi can be used standalone. akanealw4 days ago Disagree   Agree
    • I'm a PC Dummy and i had to install it on my Fire TV 3 times before i realized it wasn't going to work anyway. I was able to install Kodi 17.1 plus Exodus though and after adding Phoenix,Droid Buddy,ES Explorer and a couple other Addons,i think i have enough to last a lifetime. patchho7Apr 2017 • 2 agrees and 3 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It's probably the best alternative in terms of support and features but damn this program is frustrating to use and resource intensive on your system. ExquisiteDisasterJan 2017 • 8 agrees and 9 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Resource heavy. Lacks customization. Difficult to manage transcoding options. Guest • Nov 2016 • 7 agrees and 9 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Not as many options as Kodi, and somewhat harder to manage but it's still a decent program if for whatever reason you can't use Kodi. EricaPJan 2017 • 3 agrees and 7 disagrees Disagree   Agree
