Kodi

Kodi is a free and open-source media player software developed by the XBMC Foundation and is available for several platforms like Linux, Android, Windows, Mac OS X and Raspberry Pi.

Improvements/changes

  • A new chapter selector window – Allows you to visually browse and select chapters from mkvs and other containers that support chapters.
  • Adaptive seeking (aka Skip Steps) – The more times you press a button to seek in a period of time, the larger the jump forward or backward will be.
  • Audio and Subtitle Lists – For content that includes multiple audio and subtitle choices, you can select from a full list of choices, rather than manually searching through a spinner.
  • Language Add-ons and Expanded International Preferences – Now language translations aren’t dependent upon release, but get regularly updated to all users as the add-ons themselves update. Additionally, you now have total control over date, time, temperature and more displayed formats.
  • Improved Add-on Manager – The add-on manager has now been reworked to help make finding the add-ons you are looking for easier.
  • ffmpeg 2.6.3 update
  • Improved Closed Captioning support in Live TV
  • Fixed music video queuing
  • Allow scanning of new sources and marking as watched during other library operations such as “update library”
  • Windows DXVA HEVC hardware decoding support if driver and hardware support exist
  • And more.
