How to Install Kodi on Fire Stick, Stream Live TV, and Install The Latest Add-Ons (Exodus, Genesis, Soundplex, Hulu Plus Lots more!)

Kodi is free, open-source software designed specifically with home entertainment in mind – and it’s perfect if you’re a fan of movies, sports, films and TV shows. Although it was originally created for the Microsoft Xbox and called Xbox Media Center (XBMC), Kodi has continued to evolve – spawning a community of its own.

Unlike services like Chromecast or Plex, Kodi is managed by the non-profit XBMC Foundation, and it’s constantly being modified and upgraded by countless of coders around the world. Since its creation in 2003, Kodi has been shaped by more than 500 software developers and more than 200 translators. That means you can now customize by installing addons or builds, and they’re totally free, too. And it’s not just for laptops; Kodi can now work on everything from a smartphone to an Amazon Fire TV Stick. 

This video shows how to set up a Raspberry Pi as an XBMC Media Player using RaspBMC. Note that RaspBMC has now upgraded into an app called OSMC, which I install in this video:

  1. I want to set this up for my cottage where internet is not available. We use a generator to power the tv/lights at night. Can I set it up this way then use a usb stick that I would plug into the raspberry pi 2 and play a movie from the usb stick? The reason is I want to load my usb stick with tons of movies when I go back to the city, then when I go back up to the cottage I can just play off the stick and not worry about space.

  2. i can't get mine to work with that os mine only works with rasp. the recommended os and even with the recommended s it won't even play a simple youtube mine lags and will not play at all so far i think the pi is a peas of sh***t i even over clock it and still don't work..

  3. hi there….one of the main reasons that forces me to buy a media player is the backdrops/thumbnails of my movies. I used to have them all perfectly aligned in windows media center. Can this Pi do this??

  4. Thinking of buying a Pi3 for media centre purposes, sick of my current device (wdtv live) crashing and locking up when I plug USB Hard drives in.
    They are 50 quid for starter kits that come with kodi elec installed but I suppose I could buy just the pi and other things separately and install the operating systems myself and it be cheaper.
    Also I wouldn't need the ethernet cable they supply

  5. Can I use the Pi + OSMC to watch DVD / Blu Rays on my iPad/iPhone/Wlan PC?
    I am looking for a solution to start my Blu Ray Player and watch the movie somewhere in my house without streaming it on a HD or SD. Couldn't find a solution in the net till now.

  6. I was wondering if you could make a video showing how to get OSMC on the Pi 3 to scrape the IMDB data. I have my very large library of movies but I cannot see where or how to tell it to gather covers, posters, descriptions, ratings, genres etc from sites like IMDB and apply them to the video files in a database.

  7. sir ive got a question if you have raspbian installed on pi3 on sd card when you want to instal the movie player xbmc do you need another sd card
    iam using 4 gig card dont want to remove the other o.s
    so i probaly got to change the cards???
