Kodi is now available on Xbox One

Kodi is now available on Xbox One

This is great news for Xbox One users, as the Kodi software is an incredibly flexible and versatile media player, mainly thanks to its large range of third party add-ons that can turn it into a DVR, allow it to stream from various sources and broadcast live TV.

Kodi, the massively popular and perfectly legal media player, is now available to download for the Xbox One console.

With the new Xbox One release, Kodi has come full circle. There's no telling when or if every feature of Kodi will make its way to the Xbox One version, but the developers are working to make the app as complete as possible. If you're unfamiliar with the application, it's been available on PC, Mac, and other platforms for quite some time. After 15 years they are back where things began.

Getting Kodi on the Xbox One is now a very simple process. Due to the nature of how UWP works our hands are tied in some areas. As of this writing there's limited access to only what's part of your Video and Music folders. For example, the software now only has "limited access" to a small portion of any given Xbox One's Video and Music folders and "Network support is limited to only NFS:// shares".

The Digital Economy Bill, which was made law on April 27 2017, increased the punishment for those using the boxes for illegal means. No access to the Blu-ray drive to start the disc or even an attached storage drive. Like we said it's early in development, so there are some missing features and bugs in this rough version. I was, however, unable to connect my Drobo 5N2 storage/media streaming NAS but haven't looked into it that deeply yet. You can try out the alpha version of Kodi for the Xbox One right now by going to the Xbox One store and downloading it. Knowing that the UWP version now only supports NFS, I'm hoping there's an easy way to hook into that from the Drobo for media streaming.
