Kodi VPN 2018

Read a blog on TF that Kodi is being forced to shut down. However, there are million blogs that were published in last month suggesting new repos for downloading working addons including exodus.. apparently a guy has found a working repo for it. I am thinking of resuming kodi streaming but I'd want to know the best vpns for kodi


let me know if its fine using kodi these days?

Re: Kodi VPN 2018

I use Kodi strickly as a player on my Nvidia Shield, but don't mess with any VPN with it. But then I mainly use it to play from Serviio, and use its native apps for Amazon, YouTube or Netflix. Since it doesn't support YouTube HDR, I still use a Roku for that.

Re: Kodi VPN 2018

So the trend of Kodi has been quite low in 2018. I might be skeptic about it's future. Maybe, Kodi 18 could bring a boost up.

Not certain what trend you are referring to. I use Kodi as my primary player on my Nvidia Shield, and am currently using 18 Beta 3. There seems to be a very supportive user community. The absolute only gripe I have with Kodi is that it doesn't present my video titles in the order presented by Serviio. It insists on sorting by name, which is fine for some categories, but terrible for Last Added and Playlists. I put titles in my playlist in a specific order for a reason, and Kodi ignores it.

But for actual playback, I don't think Kodi can be beat. It plays every file I have without transcoding, including 4K/HDR, and offers full control of captions and audio tracks. Plus, I get Dolby TrueHD/Atmos and DTS Master Audio/X. I haven't found any other player that does it so well.

Re: Kodi VPN 2018

Both ExpressVPN and PureVPN are really good choice, but not to forget IPVanish .

Similiar to PureVPN, IpVanish also has a Kodi add-on.

Wow, does it produce a spectacular output for Dolby Atmos> Wooah if that's true.

I didn't knew that, thanks for the info mate.

Re: Kodi VPN 2018

My Atmos setup is 5.1.2, and the Atmos speakers are behind the mains pointing at the ceiling, not actual ceiling speakers. So the effect is nowhere near as good as it could be. but the few titles I have with Atmos or DTS:X I have noticed the more "spacious" sound.

Re: Kodi VPN 2018

Apparently, this is the Kodi VPN

KODI VPN is the great solution for things like

    Anonymity
    Unblock geo-restricted Kodi add-on
