What is Kodi?

Kodi Image

Kodi was first released in 2002 as a piece of homebrew software, allowing Xbox users to stream and play media on their devices. Since then it’s used has exploded, the software is now on its 18th versions and has been downloaded around the world tens of millions of times.

The open-source media player has grown in popularity due to its being cross-platform, open-source and also having an inbuilt 10-foot user interface. On top of this, it also has an extensive library of thousands of addons. Many of them unofficial. These addons add a multitude of capabilities including the ability to access the latest tv shows, movies and thousands of live TV channels across the world.

There is no other media player that has as many addons, combined with users, developers and the support of a core development team.

What is an Addon?

An add on is basically an additional program that gives you added features on top of what Kodi provides.

Though Kodi is a lovely feature-rich piece of software you need addons to access the latest movies and streams from scrapers that are contained within add ons.

There are literally thousands available from unknown sources, meaning they are not offered on the official Kodi add on library. This doesn’t mean the sources can’t be trusted, just that the content they provide cannot be officially sanctioned by Kodi.

What is Yoda?

Yoda is a multi-source scraper add on and can be found in the Supremacy repo. It’s also one of the oldest and most respected addons on Kodi and can be found in most builds.

Just beware of websites that say you can download it from them instead of the official repository. You are opening yourself up to corrupted files, viruses or malware. Be safe and stay official.

Is it Legal or Grey?

Yoda operates in a grey area, but anyone who uses it is clearly not fussed about being legal. Much of the content is brand new, copyrighted and not meant to be free.

Yoda has been a great add on for some years but had significant downtime this year. We are glad to see it back and working well. Use it in a mix with other video addons and you should have an excellent Kodi setup.
