Best Kodi Addons

Not everyone is tech-savvy, a software enthusiast,  or an open-source advocate. Let’s face it. Most people have a life. So to keep it simple, we decided to create this stress-free guide to satisfy your comfort zone of leisure and entertainment from yet another source besides Firestick apps and IPTV services. This time, we collected some basic Kodi concepts to help you embrace the media hub and its magical addons, one click at a time. Are you ready?

Addons Versus Builds

For starters, we wanted to remind you of the major differences between addons and builds. In short, if you need to keep it simple and straightforward, manually selecting your own addons is the way to go. But some benefits of using Kodi builds are that they have the coolest designs – although not always the most user-friendly -, and by downloading only one build, you get a package that already includes many addons. We will leave your priorities up to you. But in the meantime, these are some aspects worth highlighting:

AddonsBuilds
CustomizationsAre selected and downloaded one by one. Include a pre-selected group of addons.
SettingsThe user changes Kodi’s settings directly.The user has to change Kodi’s settings and the build’s settings.
DesignKodi includes a skin switcher to personalize its look.Builds have more fun and distinctive looks.
SpaceAddons require less hard drive space and RAM.Builds require more hard drive space and RAM.
SecurityThe user has more control over what is being downloaded to Kodi since the selections are made one by one. This helps keep privacy stronger.The user has less control over what is being downloaded to Kodi since the build includes a lot of pre-selected addons and features. This raises security concerns.
Virtual Private NetworkProtecting yourself using the best VPN for Kodi is strongly recommended when using either addons and builds. This will keep the data that your device sends over the internet private.

 

How We Evaluate Addons

When creating this list, picking one addon over the other and deciding which ones were the best was not a straightforward task. Deciding “what’s the best” is a tough mission since we understand that every user has different priorities and interests. Plus, the technology behind Kodi and its extensions is constantly changing. So please keep in mind that while this list has been tested and reviewed, the characteristics and existence of the addons might change in a matter of weeks or even hours.

What is key is understanding that you don’t really need an infinite amount of addons. Choosing three add-ons per type of entertainment or less is the recommended amount. The main add-on categories out there are films & TV shows, cartoons & animation, live TV & news, music, sports, gaming, international films, and maintenance tools. It might take some time until you figure out the addons that suit your preferences best, but once that is achieved, you can clean up your list and commit to your favorite ones – ideally prioritizing the addons that deliver high-quality streams and that have been consistently working. Other aspects to analyze when choosing your addons are design, user experience, speed, and security.

Top 10 Kodi Addons

Kodi allows you to combine various viewing streams from different sources. Do you remember when you were only a kid, and a relative took you to a toy store? Surely, you felt the adrenaline rush upon seeing an uncountable number of toys. Some of them were hard to reach, and others were hard to understand. You see ones that were colorful and noisy,  and some were even tempting. But you were shy to say so out loud. Yes, a beautiful experience, but also an overwhelming one. Chaotic, disappointing, confusing – who didn’t cry at Toys 4 U?

Just like a toy store, Kodi is an open-source space, although with things that you can actually acquire because it is designed to be publicly accessible. It works well with most devices, like TVs, laptops, smartphones, and tablets, and can be installed on Linux, OSX, Windows, iOS, tvOS, and Android. For a comprehensive discussion on Kodi, we’ve written a separate post on everything amazing that you need to know about Kodi: What is Kodi?

The magic behind using Kodi addons (or add-ons, same magic) is that it makes the experience enjoyable because you use the addons to curate it. You personalize the content you will interact with, and since you’re an adult now, there’s no reason to be shy.

With this Top 10 List, we expect to satisfy your inner child’s basic needs, or at least the digital ones. Below it, are yet another 20 third-party Kodi addons and a bonus list because know you can get picky sometimes! And there’s nothing wrong with that. What matters is that you walk the virtual hallways and take your time to find the toys that make you happy. I mean, in 2022, we all deserve some comfort, right?

1.  The Oath (Movies & TV Shows) – Kodi 18 and 19

Over the last year, the Oath has been one of the best working Kodi addons and arguably the most popular. The addon specializes in movies and TV shows, and it uses the popular Exodus theme, so it’s easy for users to navigate through. The main page has sections for Movies, TV Shows, My Movies, My TV Shows, New Movies, New Episodes, Tools, and Search. Each of these then has sub-categories that make selection easier.

The best thing about The Oath Kodi addon is that it provides lots of free streams in up to 1080p, including ones from Uptobox. However, you can still add your Real-Debrid account to enhance your streaming experience. The Oath is compatible with both Kodi 18 Leia and 19 Matrix.

Some of the addons you’ll find within KodiVerse are 4K, Asgard, Black Lightning, Essential, Fights on Demand, M.E.TV, Magic Dragon, Odin, Rogue One, and Torque Lite. Best of all? All these addons work just as well as they do on their own. In fact, some of the original addons have sections that state that they only when inside KodiVerse.

Besides the addons, KodiVerse also provides its rich library of content, mostly made up of movies and TV shows. The other addon sections let you watch movies in up to 4K, perform direct searches, and adjust the addon’s functionalities.

27.  Exodus Redux (Movies & TV Shows) – Kodi 18

Exodus was once the most popular and most widely used Kodi addon. The original addon went down for a while (and it has again after its host repo was taken offline), and Exodus Redux came to replace it. The addon did quite a good job at that and became extremely popular too, and it’s still going strong several years later.

Exodus Redux uses the same interface as the original addon, although it uses different scrapers. Unfortunately, the addon is no longer what it once was, as it is rarely updated. It is not available for Kodi 19, and the scrapers are not pulling enough streams to make it one of the top 10 Kodi addons. Nevertheless, we are leaving it here for now. You can give it a try, and preferably configure Real-Debrid.

A Recap Before We Move On

Before you keep on reading, there are three concepts about addons that we need to remind you. 

Types of AddonsOfficial Addons: These addons are included in the official Kodi repository. They respect copyrights and other legal restrictions and give you access to legitimate streaming services.   

Third-party Addons: These addons break barriers to bring you media content, which is why they are often taken down. 

As with everything tech, you need to be patient and find the newest working versions of addons.

HostsHosts are the digital locations that keep the media files, and in some cases, you will need to create an account in order to access them. So if an addon doesn’t work, it could be because you didn’t pair it with the host – but usually, this will be explained in the installation instructions.
Virtual PrivacyDifferent countries have different laws. Knowing the copyright rules in your region is key. Ask yourself how you protect the privacy of everything that is received, downloaded, and sent through your internet connection.

For all these reasons, it is a good idea to install two or three different addons per type of content. Below, you will find some official alternatives. Enjoy!

Top 10 Official Kodi Addons

1.  Xumo.tv (Movies & TV Shows) – Kodi 18

Xumo.TV is one of the best free streaming platforms out there, and there’s a Kodi addon that lets you enjoy streaming VOD and Live Channels. The homepage is split into three categories: Channels, On-Demand, and Guide.

The categories provide the same content you’ll find when using other Xumo TV platforms. However, you’ll still need to connect your VPN to countries where the service is available. These are the United States, Canada, France, Germany, the UK, Italy, Spain, Brazil, and Mexico.

BBC iPlayer is one of the best streaming services as it provides several TV channels and runs ten national UK radio stations. This means that you can use the Kodi addon to watch live TV, listen to radio, and even catch up on your favorite TV show if you happen to miss an episode.

Just like the other BBC iPlayer platforms, the Kodi addon will let you know that you’ll need a TV license, but who doesn’t have one when all you need to do is click “Yes”? However, you will need to connect to a UK server with a VPN that is not blocked by the streaming service, and ExpressVPN is excellent at bypassing those VPN blocks.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)

What Is a VPN?

VPN means virtual private network. It is an encrypted connection over the internet from a device to a network. The encrypted connection helps ensure that sensitive data is safely transmitted. In other words, a VPN is a parallel secret tunnel where everything that you receive, download, and transfer online travels, and nobody can see it.

Should I Use a VPN When Using Kodi addons?

Yes. Even though Kodi is a free and open-source media player application, builds and addons can stream illegal content. If this happens, you need to keep these streams private. On the other hand, using the best VPN for Kodi helps to avoid hackers and viruses that can hurt your devices.

Why Should I Use a VPN?

There are two main reasons why people use VPNs: to avoid geographic restrictions and to protect their privacy. A lot of content or information is available, depending on location. For media content, many networks only work in certain regions. So if you want to pretend that you are somewhere else to access these media with a VPN, you can use the “alternative tunnel” to change your virtual location. 

For privacy, the personal and professional information that we handle online is sensitive. And we shouldn’t let someone else read it or use it. There are many projects being discussed to protect users’ online privacy, but so far, in most countries, this information is still accessible to third parties. If you want to protect what you do, read, write, watch, send, and receive, you need a VPN.

Is Kodi safe to use? Is it legal?

Kodi is a piece of software designed to stream content on a range of devices. The sources used to stream media with Kodi are what is going to determine whether or not using Kodi is legal. Kodi addons, repositories, and Kodi builds might access unauthorized duplication of copyrighted content that is then sold at the so-called grey market.  This is known as illicit streaming and effectively relates to any time you stream media without the copyright owner’s permission.

Some addons stream authorized content and public domain content that is not protected by any copyright law or restrictions and may be freely copied, shared, altered, and republished by anyone. In that case, using Kodi is safe and legal.
