Kodi has become the best home entertainment system available, and all for free.
 
Originally called XBMC (Xbox Media Center) it has evolved leaving behind the hardware limitations of the original Xbox and changing its name to Kodi.
 
Kodi can be installed on many different hardware platforms from a cheap desktop/laptop computer to a Raspberry Pi. There are even installs for the Fire TV Stick.
 
Dedicated media center boxes and Android sticks can also be bought. If you don’t want to install and setup Kodi yourself than there are several to choose from.

After Kodi is installed to a media box it needs what are called Add-ons to take advantage of the content available.
 
Add-ons are like apps for a smartphone that are installed in Kodi and do what they are programmed to do.

Kodi Frequently Asked Questions
 
Why Don’t I see Exodus?
Exodus is located in the Fusion/Exodus repository, a long as Fusion/Exodus is installed into Kodi it will show up when enabled.
 
To see which repositories you have installed go to Install From Repository . All the installed Repositories will be shown.
A Step By Step Guide To Kodi and Streaming Videos Exodus Pic 555
Clicking on a repository will also show the add-ons it contains.
 
Why Don’t I see the Add-on I am looking for?
Each add-on will be located in its own repository, so adding the repository it is in will be necessary.
 
For example 1Channel is located in the tknorris repository.
 
Click here for instructions for how to install 1Channel.
 
When I click a link to a TV show or movie the link doesn’t work or buffers.
This does happen and the more popular Kodi becomes the more the servers/sources can at times become overwhelmed.
 
This is the reason many sources will come up on a list. If one source link does not work go to the next link. If it starts to buffer stop the video and move on to another link.

Most often a good source can be found within 2-3 links depending on the time of day.

    On step 7, when I click Ok, a dialogue box appears which says, “Couldn’t retrieve directory information”.

    None of these add-ons work now. How many of the current add-ons are actually working. I have tried to reinstall Exodus, Phoneix, Genesis and Navi-x none with go through. When you get to install from zip file it never works.

      It would require you to jailbreak it and depending on how old, it may not work very well. You’re better off with a lower end Android tablet or a TV box that can be purchased for around $35 on eBay if you’re planning on installing it yourself.

    I bought my fire stick and installed kodi myself. But everytime I try to find an older movie say from 2014 they charge my debt card. What can I download to get all the movies for free. Thanks

    Reply
    1. Chris

      You do not have Kodi. There is no place within Kodi to enter debit or credit card information, and it also does not allow you to download movies, just stream them. I’m not sure what you installed, but I’d check my bank account if I were you because it sounds like someone scammed you into giving out your private information.

    I recently purchased a Amazon Fire TV stick with KODI pre-installed but when searching for movies or tv programs via EXODUS, SALTS etc often when I select a link to watch it through a box will pop up telling me I need permission or a link failure message appears what is causing this ? Frustration staring to set in herindoors is pointing the finger firmly at me
