Last week Blue, a developer from Bob tweetted she used MetalliQ with Bob when looking for movies and television shows. I find Blue to be a great resouce for Kodi content and when she speaks, it usually pertains to quality content. So, to the web I went and what I discovered is MetalliQ is from OpenELEQ and much like the Meta add-on, MetalliQ will search your favourite add-ons for content in a one stop shop once configured. Without further delay, let’s proceed with this tutorial.
