KODI Addons

               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.

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.
