Kodi is an ex­tremely ver­sa­tile open source ap­pli­ca­tion. It of­fers a very el­e­gant way to man­age all your TV shows, films and mu­sic in one place. Each aspect of Kodi can be changed from its themes (known as ‘skins’) to the ad­di­tion of var­i­ous plug-ins, which sup­port ex­tra fea­tures such as YouTube play­back.

One par­tic­u­larly use­ful fea­ture con­cerns Kodi’s video and au­dio scrap­ers. These scour the In­ter­net to match your me­dia files to a par­tic­u­lar movie, TV pro­gramme or song. The re­sult­ing meta­data is dis­played in the app.

The aim of the Kodi pro­ject is to turn your PC into a home me­dia cen­tre. To this end, the ap­pli­ca­tion also sup­ports a num­ber of re­mote con­trols, in­clud­ing of­fi­cial touch­screen apps for mo­biles and even game con­trollers. Point your web browser at http://kodi.wiki/view/Re­mote_ con­trols for a full list of com­pat­i­ble de­vices.
