Kodi® media center, formerly known as XBMC™ Media Center, is an award-winning free and open source cross-platform software media player and entertainment hub for digital media for HTPCs (Home theater PCs). It uses a 10-foot user interface designed to be a media player for the living-room, using a remote control as the primary input device. Its graphical user interface (GUI) allows the user to easily browse and view videos, photos, podcasts, and music from a harddrive, optical disc, local network, and the internet using only a few buttons. IMPORTANT: This app performs with core functionality on Windows 10 S but some addons may not work. We are working with Microsoft on a fix.

Pretty Good

I'm glad that kodi is finally on xbox1. I do wish they would have used a stable version and not a beta, but i havent found too many issues. NOTE: If you are installing a repo, understand that not all will work with Kodi 18. Some add ons may work better with older versions. Check out YouTube to see what the best repos.

Be patient.

People have to be patient and give it time before it becomes the Kodi we all know and love. This is going to be great! Just give the guys enough time get it right. I know true Kodi fans understand this already. I can't wait to put my build on here!

Get to know Kodi first before giving it a low rating

Kodi is a one of a kind app and if you don't know what it is for or what it's capable of doing then you should not give it a low Rating because you're having a bad day. This is a standalone player that doesn't absolutely NOTHING unless you configure it. And to configure it's a project you need to dedicate time to. Research about Add-ons and other Kool stuff Kodi is built for requires patience. With over 5+ Years of experience with the Kodi Media Player I can tell you right now that the crashes one is experiencing is due to the Add-on or the way Kodi is configured. It, the player itself just DOESN'T crash, period. Anybody with the same time experience as me would agree. Think of Kodi like an Android OS but empty. An empty Android OS does NOTHING. You need to install APPS, Right? Same thing with Kodi but instead of apps it uses Add-ons that provide you with entertainment depending on the Add-on. Know what you're rating before you actually rate it. Enjoy and use legal Add-ons.

Love Kodi but ....

The app isn't the same as the pure downloaded version. Some add-ons work in downloadable version but not in the Windows app. Might be how MS secures it? In either case, it's a fantastic product. I recommend just getting the download from the official site. Works better and upgrading is easy. The app auto-upgrades which is neat but maybe not the best if you use a bunch of add-ons that haven't kept pace with the base install of Kodi.

Great Entertainment, Just Learn to Use It

I went to KODI.tv and read about it. Works great. Shaya wants to "hide the taskbar" which is in Windows. Search "how do I hide my taskbar" for instructions with CORTINA and it will come up on the Internet how to do this. Simple You must download "repositories" and then you get FREE everything, movies, tv, radio. Just Fantastic and works great.

IPTV Christmas

Kodi TV is not perfect but I don't expect to be. Kodi 17.x takes time and patience to learn to use but once you do, you will love it. There's Freetelly for those who want everything automatically configured and PlayOn TV which is pretty good too. VLC will play m3u playlists as well. Love Koei for my IPTV and I pay to use a good server, $5 a month. I save cable and satellite services. Think of Koei like XDA for Streaming. You have to put some work learning it. Don't expect everything given to you on a silver platter. You actually will have to self-teach yourself but its worth it.

This app never updates in the store. constant errors (0x80070216) after Downloading and trying to install. work around is uninstall/reinstall. Then set everything up again.
