What is Kodi?

Kodi is a popular open source media center. If setup correctly you can use it as your all-in-one streaming center.

If you have a large collection of music, movies, games, photos and home videos you can run your own server with Kodi. This will allow you to watch and listen to call your content on multiple devices and even share your content with family and friends.

Third Party Add-ons

One of the most popular features people use Kodi for are the third party add-ons These are created usually by developers that are affiliated or associated with the Kodi Team.

Kodi says they are not responsible and do not support any third party add-ons.

Some add-ons may access content that could potentially infringe copyright laws. Whenever you are using third-party add-ons be sure you are aware of your local laws and are careful what add-ons you are using.

I recommend using IPVanish VPN whenever streaming these types of add-ons to protect yourself and encrypt everything you accessing while online.

Games on Kodi

One of the newest trends that is making Kodi even more popular is the ability to play retro games on Kodi. You can find Atari, arcade, Nintento games and much more (hundreds if not thousands in fact!) platforms can be found.

For these types of games, I recommend a gamepad. You can use the Amazon Fire TV gamepad or any Bluetooth gamepad. These can easily be synced to your Amazon Fire TV device by selecting controllers in your settings menu.

Movies and TV Shows

Sync all your movies on our computer or NVidia Shield and to all your devices. Stream them seamlessly through your Wi-Fi network. If you have hundreds of titles, you will be able stream them all easily over your network.


I myself have thousands of music and MP3 files I have collected over the years. If you have hundreds of songs also, add them to a server and connect your Phone, tablet, Fire TV and all other devices to it using Kodi.

Listen to your favorite rock, country and hit songs no matter where you are at with remote listening.


Once you have Kodi installed on your Fire TV device, you will be able to enjoy all your entertainment on the latest version of Kodi 18.1 Leia.
