Kodi is a feature-rich multimedia center that is very popular. It was originally the XBMC player for the Xbox gaming platform but has now been ported onto almost every operating system. It runs very well on a Raspberry Pi.
Today we will build a complete multimedia center that you can use with your HD television. We will be using a Raspberry Pi as the engine in our media center, almost any Raspberry Pi will do.
I will explain how Kodi works and go over a number of different ways that you can install it on a Raspberry Pi. I will then give you a detailed installation of Kodi using the OSMC image.
Once Kodi is installed I will show you how to configure and customize it.
I’ll also go over several options for remote control of your new multimedia center.
