Kodi for Mac (formerly known as XBMC) is an award-winning free and open source (GPL) software media player and entertainment hub that can be installed on Linux, macOS, Windows, iOS, and Android, featuring a 10-foot user interface for use with televisions and remote controls. It allows users to play and view most videos, music, podcasts, and other digital media files from local and network storage media and the internet.

Features and Highlights

Kodi can play all your music including mp3, flac, wav and wma formats. It has cue sheet, tagging support and smart playlists for ultimate control of your music collection.

The tool can do Movies too! Supporting all the main video formats including streamable online media, Kodi for macOS can import, browse and play your Movie collection with ease.

The TVShow library supports episode and season views with posters or banners, watched tags, show descriptions and actors. Great for keeping track of your progress.

Import pictures into a library and browse the different views, start a slideshow, sort or filter them all using your remote control.

Kodi for Mac allows you to watch and record live TV all from the GUI interface. It works with a number of popular backends including MediaPortal, MythTV, NextPVR, Tvheadend and many more.

The real power of the app comes from the vast selection of user created Add-ons that are available though repositories. There are Add-Ons for popular web services, applications and scripts.

Web Interfaces
Interact with the app using its JSON-RPC based remote interface. This brings loads of possibilities for remote controls, web browsers and 3rd party tools to take the tool to the next level.

With UPnP compatibility, you can stream to and from any other the app instances and play to other UPnP compatible devices in your home with ease.

Remote Controls
With support for hundreds of remote controls, CEC-compatible TVs, or one of the new Smartphone and Tablet Apps, Kodi allows you to control your media your way.

Note: Kodi does not provide any media itself. Users must provide their own content or manually point Kodi to third party online services. The Kodi project does not provide any support for bootleg video content.
