Kodi is a media player software. It is open source and free and anyone can contribute to the project. It is available across platforms – Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, iOS and Raspberry Pi. It can play almost any type of media. If you have any movies or TV shows already downloaded on your device, you can organize them and play them seamlessly through Kodi. Alternatively, you can watch content from a variety of online services. Just like having your own private Netflix!
The official Kodi version does not contain any content what so ever. This means that you should provide your own content from a local or remote storage location, DVD, Blu-Ray or any other media carrier that you own. Additionally Kodi allows you to install third-party plugins that may provide access to content that is freely available on the official content provider website. Any other means of watching illegal content which would otherwise be paid for is not endorsed or approved by Team Kodi.
Using Kodi can change the way you think about streaming media. It is free and capable of playing almost anything from anywhere and very intuitive to use.
