Add-ons


What is a Kodi add-on? These are added features, not unlike tv channels, nested within the Repositories that enhance the Kodi Media Centre. Typically each add-on offers a wide range of content from live television to Movies, Documentaries and TV Programs past and present. You can even learn a language (visit Phoenix->One242415->Languages 101). Add-ons do not come bundled with the Kodi Media Centre. They must be added via a Repository (see my Repository page for a brief description including how to guides). Add-ons are created by the many developers within the Kodi community, most of whom do not earn a living, let alone any money from providing their services. It’s strictly volunteer. Some are created by members of Team Kodi, while others are created by what is often referred to as 3rd Party vendors. Some are legal, some are less so. New users should be aware of this before installing some of the Repositories and add-ons. These add-ons scrape content from various web sites which host the movie and television content you’re streaming. I don’t recommend you download movies, music or tv shows. As far as streaming content from some of these 3rd party vendors, let your own moral compass be your guide.

xbmckodi-One24215LogoOne24215

One24215 is back after a short hiatus. I for one and glad to see the return for what is quite possibly, the best add-on in the history of XBMC/Kodi. This is a complete all-in-one. For those developers wishing to create their own, One24215 is the model to follow. Whenever I’m not sure of what I want to watch, I ALWAYS head to One24215! Everything is categorized and sub-categorized for your convenience. Old, new, live, documentary, anime, you name it, it’s here! If you can’t find something to watch in this add-on, turn the tv off and go read a book!

***Nov. 6/16*** Updated. Exodus is once again the leader of the pack for the latest and greatest.

The Fusion/TVAddons Repository had a major announcement this morning. From Genesis fame, Lambda is back and has brought us a new add-on titled EXODUS. This add-on promises users an alternative to what is perhaps, the most popular add-on in Kodi. With lots of developers competing for the traffic Genesis garners, this offering from Lambda should warrant our attention. With the Spring TV release shifting into full swing, this offering could not have come at a better time. Click on the link for my EXODUS install tutorial.

xbmckodi-VelocityVelocity

Velocity from Blazetamer is part of the Fusion/TVAddons Repository and will be required to install this add-on. Velocity is an often overlooked add-on when in the company of EXODUS however, in my opinion it’s very underrated. Much like EXODUS and SPECTO it features all the latest in movies and television shows. And, much like EXODUS, users can configure their Trakt.tv Account to it. Please see my How To Tutorial regarding How to set up and sync your Trakt.tv Account to Kodi. Without further delay, let’s get into the install tutorial for Velocity

xbmckodi-tvmixlogoTV Mix

TV Mix add-on comes to us care of MetalKettle, and is part of the Fusion/TVAddons Repository family. This add-on is strictly for new television shows/series only and by new series I mean, go ahead and look for Lost, Soprano’s, etc. but don’t expect to find Gilligan’s Island (know what I mean?). No, it doesn’t have authorization from the copyright holders to stream content. Nor does it have some of the customizable settings that you might find in some of the other add-on settings menus. However, this stripped down add-on is straight forward and so far, very reliable. Users can search by Latest Episodes, Most Watched Today, New Series, Popular Series, Genres and custom search. Another thing I like about this add-on, the suggestion lists offers shows you might not see listed in other add-on tv menus. For tv junkies like me, this is well worth you time. CLICK HERE and let’s get started

allucalluc

alluc is another great add-on for the latest movies and television shows.

TheRoyalWeThe Royal We

The Royal We is a somewhat overlooked Kodi Add-on that comes bundled with both the SuperRepo Repository and the Fusion/TVAddons Repo family. Like the other add-ons in this list, it’s a great resource for the latest movies and television shows and like the other add-ons in this list, it doesn’t have authorization from the copyright holders to stream the content. Just be aware…which I’m sure by now you are. Similar to SALTS, there is a great deal of customization users can take advantage of in the add-on settings menu to configure your account. Users can add their Trakt, Alluc, Furk.net and Ororo.tv account. Users can also Enable/Disable Scrapers (Kodi auto collects metadata information and artwork for the various thumbnailsposter/cover/fanart used in association with the Music, Videos, Movies, and TV Shows). All of which helps to improve performance, search and usability for this add-on. CLICK HERE and let’s proceed with this tutorial.

1channel1 Channel

1 Channel has been around for a while and is a very reliable source for the latest television shows and movies. It has similar functionality to SALTS and works best with a Debrid account (this is a premium pay service that will minimize buffering and produce the highest quality video streams). However, if you don’t have one it’s not a big deal. You can still use the add-on and you will likely have problem finding what your looking for. Again, and it almost goes without saying, this add-on features tv and movie streams that are not authorized by the copyright holder. Without further delay, CLICK HERE and let’s begin with this tutorial.

UKTurksUKTurks Playlist

Second only to One24215, UKTurks Playlist is one of my favourite add-ons and seriously deserves your attention. This all-in-one offers users so much more than just the latest and greatest movies and television shows. There are links for live tv from around the globe, access to live sports channels, Health and Fitness, Music, international movies and television shows, cartoons, documentaries, concerts and everything is categorized and sub-categorized. There’s plenty here for the kids however, parents who choose to include this add-on should take note there is adult content available which can be passlock protected within the add-on settings. UK Turks Playlist is part of the Fusion/TVAddons Repository family and is required if you wish to install this add-on. CLICK HERE and let’s proceed.

In this tutorial, I will show you how to manually adjust your Cache size to help minimize some of the buffering issues you may be experiencing. It will not eliminate the issue altogether however, it may serve to improve your Kodi experience. Without further delay, CLICK HERE and let’s get started

SpotiMC-LogoSpotiMC aka Spotify

Spotify is perhaps the best service available for streaming music online. Users should note, this add-on will require users to register a Spotify Premium Account to utilize it. Otherwise, this will not work. Further, this add-on uses SPOTIFY(R) CORE in order to run on Kodi.

xbmckodi-1080pMoviesLogo1080p Movies

1080p Movies is another great add-on from the Xfinity/Xunitys Repository family and in particular, DandyMedia. It features lots of links with 1080p content and is a great go-to if you’re looking for another alternative to Exodus or Specto. The two aforementioned add-ons have been taking some abuse online of late as much of their advertised 1080p content is actually 720p. Personally, that’s just splitting hairs when we’re talking about free television and movies. Exodus is still the king of add-ons and I for one truly appreciate what Lambda puts out. I think DandyMedia deserves some attention here as well since there are some great add-ons within that repo, 1080p Movies being one of them. As mentioned, 1080p Movies is part of the Xfinity/Xunitys Repository family and will be required if you wish to install this add-on.

xbmckodi-M4ULogoM4U

M4U is another great add-on from Mucky Ducks 3rd party add-on/Repository family. Mucky’s been around for a while and updates his add-ons regularly. With this in mind, users should feel confident when installing this add-on as it should be active for some time to come. This add-on will provide users with another resource for the latest in movies and television shows. It’s a great go-to if you’re looking for another alternative to Exodus or Specto. Users wishing to install this add-on will be required to install Mucky’s Repository first. Without further delay, CLICK HERE and let’s get into this tutorial.

xbmckodi-EchoStreamsLogoEcho Streams

The ECHO Streams Add-on is now part of the Fusion/TVAddons Repo family. This add-on is an all-in-one much like Phoenix, UK Turks, Bob and Stream Hub. Once inside this add-on, you can choose from Raiden’s Streams, Echo Streams or Ethereal TV. Each has it’s own offerings; everything from live television and sports, to movies, music, documentaries, even has a section for Religion (see Raiden’s Streams).

Scene Peeper is another great add-on from Mucky Ducks 3rd party add-on/Repository family. Mucky’s been around for a while and updates his add-ons regularly. This repo offers a collection of add-ons that gather streams from some of the most popular streaming websites from around the globe. Add-ons such as PMovies, Yes Movies, Movie Vault , MoviePool, etc, are all set up and function in a similar manner, offering users more options for streaming movies. I point out Scene Peeper here as it seems to be a bit more comprehensive than the other aforementioned add-ons however, why not test them all and you be the judge?

xbmckodi-StreamArmyLogo Stream Army

Stream Army 3rd party add-on, I found to be another one of those gems that seems to have it all! For starters, yes there is a live section for both regular television and sports (sorted by channel and mostly UK content) however, the content for live concerts is quite good and I found the documentary section to be quite in-depth. Further, there’s a decent amount of content within the conspiracy, comedy Movies and adult (research purposes of course) sections. When you look at this add-on as a whole, it’s not unlike UKTurks or One24215. That’s a lot of value for one add-on! Please note, this add-on does not have authorization from the copyright holders to broadcast the streams contained within. This add-on is part of the Fusion/TVAddons Repo family and is required if you wish to install this add-on. With that out of the way, CLICK HERE and let’s proceed with this tutorial.

If you’re looking for something similar to Exodus or Specto, then put Zen in your wheel house. Without further delay, CLICK HERE and let’s dig into this tutorial.
