Home Theatre Software Showdown: Kodi Vs Plex

Who needs Netflix? With home theatre apps like Plex and Kodi, you can roll your own sweet-looking library with all the TV shows and movies you like, with none of the junk. But which software should you use? Here’s how the two biggest solutions stack up against each other.

Install Kodi On iOS, No Jailbreak Required 

We’ve seen a couple apps get around Apple’s restrictions by going with manual installs with the help of the new version of Xcode, which no longer requires a paid developer account.

We’ve been a fan of Kodi since it was still called XBMC. The Android version of the media centre app has been in an open beta for a while, but now that period is over. You can now download and install it on your phone, tablet or Android TV without joining a Google+ community.

KodiLauncher Stops Kodi From Losing Focus (And Fixes Other Annoyances)

Power Up Your XBMC Installation With These Awesome Add-Ons

Chorus Is A Powerful Web-Based Remote Control For XBMC

Fusion Installer For XBMC Simplifies Adding Third-Party Add-Ons

XBMC has a lot of cool add-ons, but not all of the cool possible additions come directly through official channels. If you want to get off the beaten path, Fusion can help make it easier to install unofficial (and untested) add-ons.
