We tend to worship superheroes such as Superman, Spider-Man, Batman because of its incredible powers which a normal human being cannot poses but in the world of accessing free unlimited content online, only one superhero comes to mind; Kodi. Created by a not-for-profit organization, it’s entirely free to use open source media player application that packed all your favorites shows and movies into a small box which satisfies all your entertainment thirst.
Since 2002 Kodi has created a customer base among those, who crave online streaming and sharing content online without moving an inch from their Sofas. It allows millions of users to use third-party add-ons which are designed by independent developers by chance to create something outside Kodi and not about the Kodi Community.
If you are talking about Kodi, the question reverses to what Kodi can’t do. It’s like a savior in the entertainment world adding multiple flavors at your disposal to support a large range of devices and operating systems. Be it music, video content or pictures, Kodi supports all on numerous formats.
What’s unique is you can access entertainment on Kodi from anywhere, no matter where you are Kodi can be accessed by bringing you multiple choices of content in whichever language you desire. However, its recommended to use working Kodi Add-ons and avoid banned or malicious repositories which are prone to cyber attacks.
Is Kodi coming towards a Halt?
Being illegal in some countries Kodi poses a severe threat to its existence. In a gist, it’s an empty box where you can fulfill all your entertainment activities. However, Kodi uses multiple contents which can and does fall under copyright issues making the famous media player under the radar and gains attention from law authorities.
If you are a Kodi user who knows hands on regarding the media player, you should’ve witnessed the recent crackdowns of Kodi add-ons which are appearing on recent headlines and hitting newspapers front pages. An alliance has been created by the entertainment industry and copyright holder to take extreme measures in taking out numerous add-on creators.
Recently major asset for the Kodi community known as ZemTV, J Sergio 123 and the Alpha has been threatened and shut them down, making a wave of fear disperse in the community as a whole. The MPA launched an anti-piracy coalition alliance for illegal distribution of content, making them take down pirated content from Kodi. A popular group known as Ares Project has been a victim of MPA who served almost 100 million Kodi users in the last two years.
Is Kodi here to stay in 2018 or Will it Shut Down?
On the bright side a new update will be landing on the media player; the ‘Kodi 18.0 Leia’. The team of Kodi has completed its final touch ups regarding features and the result. The software is in beta with a 64-bit software with well-known and working add-ons.
