Is Kodi Trying to Prevent Other Sources
During recent testing of Kodi on the Fire TV we discovered something that may be troubling to some users of Kodi. When trying to install some addon wizards and options via the zip files as has been traditionally simple to do I Kodi displayed a message informing me I could not do so. We have a video to show what happened.
Is Kodi trying to kill third party add-ons?
The XBMC foundation has been very vocal about its distaste for developers and youtube producers who use the platform to view unlicensed content but to this point has done nothing to prevent
people from using the on their system. Its concern was more that people were too often associating the program itself with unofficial add-ons and putting possible business deals in jeopardy as a result. Unfortunately, at least the Android build of Kodi did not even include the official Kodi addon repository. I imagine that can be added but I have not had a chance to explore this option. In general, this bears watching. Check out our video below to see what happens when we try to add URLs.
