Kodi is a multiplatform multimedia center that includes a player and organizer of contents (music, videos, photos), but it has the possibility to expand its functions and various customization options through the installation of addons.
Through Kodi it is possible to manage the movies that are stored on the computer or some other device, since it supports almost all video formats (including mkv and other high definition formats) and subtitles, but it can also be accessed To sites that publish videos, podcasts, or movies online.
By means of the addition of addons there are several other services available, either to access games, television channels, weather reports and other content related to education, entertainment, etc.
There are repositories of add-ons maintained by the Kodi user community that offer very interesting options; For example: TVAddons, Fusion, XUnitiy and Navi-x, among others. Repositories must be added in System-> File Management-> Add Fonts. Subsequently go to Systems-> Addons-> Install from a Zip and select (within the folders corresponding to the added sources) the .zip files that contain the information of the repositories.
The interface presents a main menu with the main options: Music, Videos, Programs and Systems. Each section allows you to manage your own content or load addons.
Kodi (previously known as XBMC ) was created for XBOX, but can be used on PC (Windows, Linux), Mac, Android phones or IOS, and other devices, such as Amazon Fire TV. It can be very useful for transmitting content from the computer to the TV.

After using it for a while, the user will be able to familiarize himself and adapt to this excellent free multimedia center.
