Kodi (formerly XBMC – Xbox Media Center) is a free and open-source media player software developed by the XBMC Foundation, a non-profit technology consortium.Kodi is available for multiple operating systems and hardware platforms, with a software 10-foot user interface for use with televisions and remote controls. It allows users to play and view most videos, music, such as audio and video podcasts from the internet, and all common digital media files from local and network storage media.
Kodi runs on Linux, OS X, Windows, iOS, and Android. It is a popular multi-platform alternative to Windows Media Center for HTPC (Home Theater PC) use.

What are the Kodi/Xbmc Add-ons?
Kodi/Xbmc 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, as well as skins (themes) and more available from a common official repository, while still enabling third-party developers to also host their own unofficial repositories for add-ons that any user can choose to add themselves if they like. However, most of the official kodi add-ons are useless.

Note: If you download an add-ons that damage your device, please do not contact me. You need to be very careful while installing add-ons. Install safe and tested add-ons only.
