Installing Add-ons in KODI.
Add-ons are packages that add features and functions not normally included with KODI. Add-ons are developed by people on Team KODI and third-parties. KODI has a growing list of community driven add-ons for online content like YouTube, Hulu, Grooveshark, Pandora Radio. Some add-ons like Hulu are blocked due to Geo-blocking. You can get around this with either VPN, DNS or android applications like Hola.
There are a couple of ways to install add-ons. Either from the
1: Repository. Always check here first.
2: From ZIP files.
3: From an internet drive ( not shown here)
Below we will look at installing video add-ons which has the most available but there are also add-ons for music and pictures
1: The repository is where you would check for add-ons first. The official repository has 200+ video add-ons but you can always increase this with 3rd party add-ons. Most work but some do not due to Australia being block with Geo-blocking or other reasons. These are very easy to install.
To install from the official repository you select the Video/add-ons sub menu.
From here you select the “Video Add-ons”. Below is a screen with no add-ons installed.
Selecting “Get more” Will give you the official repository of add-ons available.
To install 3rd party add-ons you need to install them from ZIP files. This is done in the System settings.
This will install the add-on directly or will add to your repository. Most times you will add a new repository.
Then install the add-on. The advantage is that when a update is done on the add-on it will update itself.
If you do not get into the above screen when first going into add-ons click back until you do.
