KODI (previously known as XBMC) is an excellent free open source media center that calls itself a “High Definition Hub” for all kinds of media.
With KODI, you can intuitively and quickly browse and organize all of your multimedia from all sources, whether it’s local storage, network storage, external drives, or the Internet.
The program can also play all types of video, audio, and image files, with the added bonus of automatically cataloguing your libraries so that every movie or TV series has its own cover, duration, and other relevant information extracted from different specialized websites such as IMDB or Filmaffinity.
KODI provides a user friendly interface that’s intuitive, very flexible, and easy to use. The interface is completely customizable through user-created or downloadable skins.
KODI is available for multiple operating-systems and hardware platforms, featuring a 10-foot user interface for use with televisions and remote controls.
