Kodi is now available for the Xbox One

The ever popular media system Kodi is now available for the Xbox One. The version of Kodi for the Xbox is a UWP app and it still a little rough around the edges according to the Kodi blog. Some areas aren’t complete and there are some limitation due to the UWP platform.

It’s great to see Kodi on the Xbox One as the media system started life as Xbox Media Center running on the original Xbox One.

Download the app from the Microsoft Store.

What you should really understand and keep remembering is that it is still in early stages of development and has very rough edges, might not be as stable as the regular version and may even be missing some functions. Due to the nature of how UWP works our hands are tied in some areas. Some parts are not even finished yet and our developers are still working on getting it up to the regular standard. As of this writing there’s limited access to only what’s part of your Video and Music folders. Network support is limited to only NFS:// shares. No access to the Blu-ray drive to start the disc or even an attached storage drive. There might still be problems with certain general python modules that are used by add-ons and we are finding and reporting them to the developers as testing progresses. I’m sure there’s more that might not work as intended yet as there are so many features it just will take a while to go over them. We cannot promise to what extend we can get every feature working as it all depends on what is available to us developers.
