Kodi v16.1 (Portable) | 101.4 Mb
Kodi (former XBMC) is a multimedia control panel that you can use to seamlessly play video clips and audio tracks, as well as view pictures, while fully enjoying this experience. It can be easily handled, even by less experienced users. The interface of the application is slick and intuitive. Unfortunately, there is no option to exit full screen mode. In the main menu, you can navigate through videos, music, pictures, weather and programs.
So, you can view the current temperature and weather forecast for the following three days. Plus, you can have up till three locations set up.
When it comes to images, you can select the viewing mode between image wrap, list, big list, thumbnails and pic thumbs. But you can also change the sorting order (e.g. by name, type) and create a slideshow.
Video clips can be organized in a playlist. Plus, you can load subtitles and configure settings regarding deinterlacing, video scaling method, black bars cropping, viewing mode, zoom amount, pixel ratio and post-processing, among others.
Kodi is fully customizable from the "Settings" area. It even allows you to observe some information about your system, such as memory usage. Thus, you can adjust the program so that it provides stability and a good performance.
The media center requires a high amount of system resources, has a good response time and supports multiple skins for the interface. No error dialogs have been displayed throughout our testing and Kodi did not freeze or crash. Unfortunately, there is no help file available. All in all, Kodi seems a pretty complete tool for managing media files.
