Hey there! I’m here to talk about Kodi, a media center and home-theater PC client that has been around for over fifteen years. Kodi is an amazing app that lets you stream and watch content from all over the world, wherever you are. It’s got a slick interface, a customizable theme engine with lots of options, and the ability to add apps from different sources using software repositories. That’s what makes Kodi one of the most powerful media streaming apps out there, especially in a world where Windows Media Center is no longer around. If you’re looking for a powerful streaming app, Kodi is the way to go. You can get it on Windows, macOS, iOS, Android, and even Raspberry Pi!

With Kodi, you can access all your favorite content on one device. You can watch videos, listen to music, check out podcasts, and more, all right from the internet. And that’s not all – Kodi also lets you easily play media files from your own storage or through your network. This makes it super easy to stream content wirelessly that Amazon might not let you on their devices. But wait, there’s more! Kodi even has add-ons for popular services like Netflix, Spotify, and YouTube. So, you can potentially replace the whole Fire OS on your device and use Kodi to stream all your content. However, I have to mention that Kodi has a bit of a dark side. It allows users to stream pirated content and TV shows, which is something we don’t support. But hey, millions of people around the world still use Kodi for that purpose.

As an app, Kodi is perfect for watching movies. It doesn’t matter if you have DVDs, Blu-rays, or if you prefer streaming online. Kodi supports all of that. Let me show you how to watch movies from any source!

Watching Movies From DVD or Blu-ray Discs

If you have a DVD or Blu-ray collection, Kodi makes it a breeze to watch your movies. Just open the Kodi app on your computer and pop your disc into the internal or external disc drive. Once your computer reads the disc, move your cursor over the disc option using your mouse, arrow keys, or remote. Finally, select “Play disc” from the menu and enjoy your movie!

Hey there! Did you know that you can set up movies to start playing automatically in Kodi as soon as you insert the disc? It’s super convenient! To do this, just follow these steps:

  1. First, click on the cog icon located at the top of the Kodi sidebar. This will open up the settings menu.
  2. Next, select “Player settings” from the menu options.
  3. Once you’re in the player settings, look for “Discs” on the Kodi sidebar and select it.
  4. Now you’ll see a bunch of settings related to discs. This is where the magic happens!

By configuring these settings, you can ensure that your movies start playing automatically when you insert the disc. How cool is that? Enjoy your movie night with Kodi!

If you want to adjust your DVD and Blu-ray settings, you have a couple of choices. One of the options in the DVD settings is “Play DVDs automatically.” To activate this setting, simply click on it. Now, whenever you insert a DVD, the movie will start playing automatically in Kodi.

While a movie is playing, you’ll see some controls on the screen. Take a look at the image below to see what they look like. One of the controls is a “Video Menu” button, which lets you access the movie’s menu and choose specific chapters. If you want subtitles for the film, just press the “Subtitles” button and you can download them.

When you’re watching a video, you can access additional options by clicking on the “Settings” button on the right side of the playback controls. This will open up a menu with different choices. If you want to adjust the video settings, select “Video Settings” from the menu. In this section, you’ll find different options to enhance your viewing experience.

First, you can choose different viewing modes to optimize the display. If there are black bars around the film, you can select your preferred aspect ratio to remove them. You also have the option to zoom in on the video if you want to get a closer look. Additionally, you can increase the contrast to make the film’s levels more pronounced.

On the other hand, if you want to adjust the audio settings, you can select “Audio and subtitles settings” from the menu. By default, your volume is set at 100 percent, but you can increase it beyond that to maximize the sound from your speakers. However, be cautious when doing so.

To access the video settings, click on “Video settings” and you’ll see the options displayed in the snapshot below. From there, you can customize the viewing mode by clicking on “View mode”. If there are any black bars still present around the film, you can select “Zoom” to crop them out. Alternatively, you can manually adjust the zoom amount by dragging the bar. If the movie appears too dark, click on “Contrast” to enhance its brightness. The subtitle options allow you to add subtitles downloaded from the internet, and you can set all of these settings as default for future movies.

Adding Movie Video Files to Kodi

Hey there! You know, I’ve got a nifty trick for you to try out with Kodi. You can actually add movie video files to this awesome media center and enjoy your favorite flicks right from your own collection. The best part? Kodi supports most video file formats, so you don’t have to worry too much about the specific format of your film.

Now, before we dive in, I need to mention something important. It’s crucial that you only download movies from websites that offer legal content. That means sticking to public domain films that are freely available. A couple of great websites to check out for these movies are The Internet Archive, PopcornFlix, and Retrovision.

With that said, let’s get started! To add a movie file to Kodi, follow these simple steps:

  1. Click on Videos in the sidebar. It’s the second option from the top.
  2. Next, click on Files and then select Add videos.
  3. A box will pop up, asking you to add a video source. To do that, simply click the Browse button.
  4. From the browsing window, locate the folder on your computer that contains the movie video files. Once you’ve found it, select it and click OK.

And that’s it! You’ve successfully added the movie video files to Kodi. Now, a window called Set content will appear, where you can customize information about the movies in your collection. Feel free to explore and make any adjustments you like.

So go ahead, grab some popcorn, and get ready to have an amazing movie-watching experience with Kodi!

First off, let me show you how to access your movie collection on Kodi. Just click on This directory contains and choose Movies. Kodi’s built-in Movie Database scraper will automatically find fan art, ratings, and other details for each film. Once you’ve done that, press OK to add the movie video folder to Kodi. To access your movies, just hover your cursor over Videos on the home screen and select the folder under Media sources. Then simply click on a movie to watch it on your media center.

Streaming Movies With SALTS

If you want another way to watch movies on Kodi, you can try streaming add-ons. These add-ons allow you to stream films and TV shows from other sources directly in Kodi. There are plenty of streaming add-ons available, including Exodus, which you can learn how to install from TechJunkie’s article on Jarvis. But if you’re looking for a good alternative, SALTS (Stream All The Sources) is a solid choice. Keep in mind, however, that Tech Junkie does not support the streaming of copyrighted movie content in any form.

To get started with streaming movies using SALTS, follow these steps: First, select Add-ons on Kodi’s sidebar. Then, click on the cog icon at the top of the Add-ons sidebar. From there, click on Unknown sources on the Add-ons tab to enable that setting. Don’t worry, just press the Yes button to confirm your selection.

Next, you’ll need to find the SALTS download on the internet. Keep in mind that GitHub has removed SALTS, so it might be a bit difficult to find a stable home for it. You can try searching here, but if that doesn’t work, you may need to do a quick Google search to find the latest repository. Once you have the SALTS file, open Kodi again and click on Add-ons on the home screen. From there, select the box icon at the top of the Add-ons sidebar. Finally, click on Install from zip file and choose the SALTS zip file from the Install from Zip file window.

Alright, let’s get started! First, click on Install from repository. This will bring up a list of add-ons, including the SALTS repository. Find Video add-ons and select Stream All The Sources. Now, you’ll see the options for this add-on on your screen. To add SALTS to Kodi, simply press the Install button. It’s that easy!

Once you’ve installed SALTS, it’s easy to access it from the home screen. Just go to Add-ons and select SALTS. If you want to customize the add-on, you can open Settings. There, you’ll find an option to Auto-Configure SALTS, which will optimize it for better performance. Just click the Continue button and you’re good to go.

To navigate within SALTS, simply press the “..” button to go back to the main index. From there, select Movies to explore different film categories. If you’re looking for a specific movie, just click on Search and type in the title. SALTS will find available streams for you. Once you’ve chosen a stream source, the movie will start playing in Kodi with the standard playback controls.

I want to tell you that Kodi is not just a regular platform. It’s actually pretty awesome on its own. You can use it to play all your local media, like photos and music, right from your computer. But if you want to take Kodi to the next level, just installing the app on your computer won’t be enough. Trust me, you’ll want to explore the world of Kodi add-ons and builds.

Add-ons are like little extras that you can add to Kodi to give it some extra functionality. They’re like upgrades that make Kodi even better. And if you’re feeling adventurous, you can go all-out and install builds. Builds are like complete makeovers for your Kodi. They add thousands of apps, add-ons, and even a fancy new graphic interface to your media PC.

Luckily, here at TechJunkie, we’ve got you covered on both fronts. We’ve got plenty of guides to help you find the best add-ons for Kodi. So whether you want to add a few extra features or transform your Kodi experience completely, we’ve got the tips and tricks you need.
