Watch movies, videos, podcasts and other internet sources. In addition to consuming all kinds of multimedia content, such as music, images and everything. Create your own home theater.
Kodi is an amazing tool for those who want to consume various types of multimedia content. Open source and multiplatform, is available for a variety of operating systems. With it you can watch your favorite movies, either offline (if in formats such as MP4, MKV, AVI, for example) or online with the help of Addons. Even watching TV is possible through the software (you can buy from stores an adapter for using digital TV on PC). On the internet you will find numerous tutorials demonstrating how to install addons on Kodi. There are many ways to get Kodi and build your Home Cinema, if you want to install the latest versions of Kodi on your Ubuntu via PPA, access this post demonstrating every step by step. If you don't care about Kodi versioning, just search your distro store directly for: Kodi or install via terminal (the package name also kodi, simpler impossible).
How to install Kodi on Flatpak
At the Flathub repository, maintained by the community, the Kodi is also present. Particularly using this version, I avoid adding many PPAs to my system. First you will need to enable the use of Flatpaks on Ubuntu, this post teaches the procedure. Now just search the Ubuntu store for: Kodi Flatpak and install the program (on Linux Mint you can search directly, without any settings, Flathub is already enabled by default). Users from other distributions, who do not have Flatpak configured, can do as per this link (Note that this step only demonstrates the configuration of Flatpak. It is necessary to add Flathub as well). If you want to install via terminal, or your system store does not have integration with the packages in Flatpak format, here's the example.
Adding the Flathub repository via terminal:
flatpak remote-add –if-not-exists flathub https://flathub.org/repo/flathub.flatpakrepo
Installing Kodi Flatpak via Terminal:
flatpak install flathub tv.kodi.Kodi
Removing Kodi Flatpak via Terminal:
flatpak remove tv.kodi.Kodi
Now you can enjoy your full-fledged media center or go for more content and material about Kodi Addons and features. I guarantee there is a lot of internet out there about the program, the cool thing that it can be used on Windows, macOS, Linux, iOS, Android, Raspberry Pi and so on.
