Kodi (aka XBMC Media Center - XBMC) is a powerful media workstation that helps you uncover the full potential of your Home Theater Personal Computer.
If you are looking for a state-of-the-art multimedia control panel that will provide excellent playback of your movies and music, Kodi is one of the best choices.

One of the features distinguishing Kodi from other players is its full screen interface, with intuitive commands.

From Kodi’s window you can easily access videos, music, pictures, programs and weather. The full screen mode cannot be exited, but this kind of interface is suitable for Home Theater Personal Computers, so this fact does not necessarily represent a limitation.

Kodi is able to play the most popular audio, video and image formats, including ISO files and Blu-rays. In terms of weather forecast display, you can set up to three locations and see what the weather will be like in the following three days.

The remote control is one of the most appreciated functions in Kodi; by using this application, you will be able to control your movie playback from the comfort of you couch.

Besides playing multimedia found on your computer, Kodi also supports files from the Internet or other networks and it can stream multimedia.

Kodi is not only a media player, but a video editor as well: some options you can apply to your videos are deinterlacing, scaling, black bars cropping, zoom, post-processing, viewing mode, pixel ratio, etc.
Kodi is a file manager, too; the program scans your computer for multimedia contents automatically and creates a library that is very easy to handle.

This software is strongly recommended to anyone needing a reliable jukebox application for their HTPC. The design and the functionality of this program are both above the average.

Changes to Kodi 20.1:

- As is always inevitable in software, we are back with a new release of Kodi 20.x "Nexus".

As a Linux person I would rate this as 3.5 stars because it is a good app and fiddling about is part of the Linux way BUT as a Windows app, Kodi is a failure in that it is much too pissanty to install and no amount of YouTube instruction for getting a simple executable up and working is excusable in Windows World.

It must be far better tested in Win 7, 8.1 and 10 to ensure it comple bundles with every single .dll, .ocx or any other essential file to ensure it runs OOTBox! Until it's developers grasp that simple fact Kodi wiil always be relegated to the boonies of Home Theater programs and never fullfill its potential.

To the developers of Kodi: Don't waste your time adding new bells and whistles until you can get your software to install. Perfectly. Every time. No excuses. To do otherwise simply increases user expectations and heightens their level of disappointment and bad press.
