A great windows media center alternative! with a lot of features to keep you busy, if you have a tv tuner card it will support that to though the configuration for your tv tuner card can be a little overwhelming , really wish it was a little simpler in that aspect but a great free program give it a try !

Impossible to rate Kodi anything but 5. Fantastic front end to your htpc project. Allows you to configure to your heart's content.

SmoothVideo Project

Running this on four U-M8 Android systems. Just about ready to put it On
A coupla 10" Tablets & an Android Fone. I've only got 2 Add-ons Installed.
I make m3u files for Streaming & with some SEO knowledge I must be in the
Region of 100,000 to 200,000 accessible Streams.

It is of Course Streaming, Static & Live. So lots of Glitches with Quality.
In the main tho Excellent. The techy's can Combat Buffering & the like by
Adjustments in the AdvancedSettings.xml...........5*

Now that I've finally started using this, I wish I had started, and organized my media to work with it, years ago. I had tried it before but uninstalled because I was too lazy to make the time to get comfortable with it. Now that I'm using it I changed all my files to be in individual subfolders with the format 'Movie Name (Year)' and had to look up all the years on imdb, but only have to do that once. I highly suggest using Media Center Master (http://www.mediacentermaster.com/) to scrape the data so you don't have to rely on Kodi to do it.
I agree with the reviewer below that MADVR is better, I should try to set it up with Kodi with this tutorial: http://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=209596
I used to use K-Lite, but if you want to use MADVR, the simplest installer is with Kawaii Codec Pack which I moved to: http://haruhichan.com/fo...5-KCP-Kawaii-Codec-Pack . However I don't see Kodi as a replacement for codec packs - its power is in being a media library.

shame it's picture quality isn't that good on some codecs. And it's a nightmare to set up madVR rendered on to get better picture quality. MediaPlayerClassic and K-lite codecs can be configured with a few clicks for MadVR for much supirior picture quality which shows on bigger screens.
