Kodi, formerly XBMC, is a free and open source media player and entertainment center for Linux, Mac OS X, Windows, XBox, and iOS. Kodi is designed to be the perfect companion to a home theater PC - it supports an almost endless range of remote controls, and combined with its beautiful (and highly "skinnable") interface, Kodi feels very natural to use from the couch.
Currently Kodi can be used to play almost all popular audio and video formats around. It was designed for network playback, so you can stream your multimedia from anywhere in the house or directly from the Internet using practically any protocol available.
Kodi is also a platform with 17 apps listed on AlternativeTo. Browse all 17 apps for Kodi.

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.
I downloaded Kodi today to test as an alternative to WMP. Unfortunately, I am not finding it suitable for housing or managing my music library for the following reasons:
Currently, not a fan so I will move on to VLC.
Kodi is my all-time favorite app in android store

The best of the best.
Powerful, great looking, and gets the job done very well.
A little bit of learning curve, but unstoppable for powerusers.

I love this app but it needs to stop force closing and freezing up all the time.
best entertainment center for pc and mobile with the most features and support
Kodi is great cross-platform Full-Stack TV OS that can named like "Best software for TV anytime". High quality of streaming and ocean of plugins with components like Unified search makes it irreplaceable soft for IPTV and DVB devices. Android cannot do it more stable, it is not serious anyway))
Best performance even on cheap laptops with Linux.
