Kodi Era: Facts and Stats

Kodi Era: Facts and Stats
Published by: forahobby on Monday, April 08, 2019
Tagged: Media Center, Xbox 360, Xbox One,

Kodi is widely known for being an open source media software that allows users stream all kinds of media stored either locally or on the internet. It is highly customizable and optimized for streaming across multiple operating systems and platforms including TVs. With add-ons that literally give access to all kinds of content including Live TV, it’s no wonder millions of users worldwide are cutting the cord and using Kodi across their devices.

Kodi Era: Facts and Stats

Kodi first sprung on the scene over a decade ago and has been a major entertainment fixture since then. However, there have been numerous misconceptions regarding Kodi over the years making it somewhat confusing for newbies to truly understand it. Even some of the most popular Kodi builds in the past have either been blacklisted or gone offline for various reasons.

This article aims to address some of the key facts about Kodi, the stats behind its huge success over the years and also how it has evolved since it first emerged. Happy reading!

History of Kodi: How it all started

In 2002, Xbox Media Player or XBMP was launched and served as a media player for the Xbox gaming console. Kodi’s journey, however, started in 2004 when the Xbox Media Center (XBMC) was launched as a replacement for XBMP. XBMC was created by completely rewriting the source code for XBMP. The media player grew very popular, so much that it was subsequently created for other operating systems including Windows and Linux, and subsequently Android and iOS.

Due to the XBMC’s inability to claim ownership to the name (Xbox Media Centre) and also to show a clear distinction between the media player and Xbox. It’s worth pointing out that The XBMC Foundation, however, claims they never received any warnings to stop using the name from Microsoft Xbox.

Kodi is currently being run by the XBMC Foundation which is legally registered in the US as a non-profit organization. With over 500 official add-ons and around 40 million users worldwide, Kodi nowstands out as one of the most effective media players worldwide.

Tagged: Gaming, Xbox 360, Xbox Live, Xbox One,

Realtime Worlds open world action-adventure video game 'Crackdown' is now available to download for free!

To celebrate the launch of Crackdown 3, Microsoft are giving away the original Crackdown for free! Play it on your Xbox One with Backward Compatibility.

Crackdown pushes the action-driving hybrid genre into the next generation with the first ever truly 3-D playground. Gamers will enforce justice by any means necessary in Pacific City, a crime-ridden urban center built to encourage the exploration of the full width, depth and height of the city. Coupled with highly innovative co-op gameplay — a genre first — and an interactive world where nearly anything can be used as a weapon, gamers will be able to create a volatile cocktail of judicial oppression as they clean up the streets.

Click here to Download Crackdown for Free!

The in-game menu might not offer these, but there are free DLCs for Crackdown as well. Make sure to download the Free-For-All pack too, as that gives you access to cheats, some new vehicles, and the ability to resurrect enemies to fight them again.

Developed by Real Time Worlds and published by Microsoft Game Studios, Crackdown is available to download for free today! Check out the complete list of Crackdown achievements.
