“Kodi is one of the most popular online media players around. And for good reason. It is one of the most versatile and flexible media players on the market,” David Spencer writes for AdditivieTips. “That means that not only can it play pretty much any file format you can think of, but it can also be run on just about every platform and operating system around.”
