How does Kodi work?

Once you download and install the desktop application, you can start to add multimedia content to the platform and install the plugins and add-ons you want to access the audio and video on the streaming service you subscribed to. You can consult our guide about configuring Kodi from scratch.

Note that Kodi does not come with any multimedia content as it allows you to centralize all your content on the same platform. Moreover, it supports two types of content:

  • The local files you stored on your hard drive, cloud storage, any remote location, CDs, DVDs, Blue-Rays, and others.
  • Content that comes from third-party services you got for free or through subscription, that kind of content needs you to install and use add-ons.

Is it free?

You can download and use Kodi for Windows for free. The application is open-source, receives contributions from volunteer developers, and has a donation-based business model.

Kodi is completely legal, as well as all its add-ons you can download from the app’s official repository, such as YouTube, Twitch, or SoundCloud. However, this statement won’t always be true if you install third-party add-ons. Kodi will ask you to acknowledge that information before enabling the option that allows you to install external add-ons.

Other alternatives

You may need to choose an alternative to Kodi if you find it too complicated to use. You can discover our guide that covers how to watch tv online, as well as our selection of the best programs to download videos from any page. If you are interested in managing your local files and accessing other online options from the same platform, iTunes is an excellent alternative.
