    Torrents / Kodi

    I was just wondering if anyone here uses Kodi/XBMC and if so what video/music/picture etc addons do you use? Recently started using it as a media player.

    I use it to watch live football.
    The add on is Phoenix. Hasn't been working last week or so, hasn't found the games. Might need an update/reset.

    Yep, been using Kodi on an Amazon Firestick for a while now. Phoenix i use purely for HD films, Genesis for various older tv shows etc (although from what i've read they're not updating it anymore ), Sportsdevil for live footy that isn't on tv. Hulubox is good too but you'll need a proxy if using that from the UK.

    Fusion is a good place to start as it auto-installs a heap of add-ons https://seo-michael.co.uk/tutorial-h...ler-kodi-xbmc/

    My dad bought an Amazon Firestick with Kodi and a fuck load of preloaded add-ons. He thought it would be a better solution to having Sky but in reality it hasn't been much of a success. It directly impacted on my internet connection as well so I told him to fuck it off. I tried a fair few of the add-ons when he first got it but the stream qualities were patchy at best....

    My mate was saying the free sky streams are crap cause sky basically take them down, he got a video addon called he's gets sky package, 3pm kickoffs etc for 4 a month, might give that a go

    I use it exclusively for my TV/movie/free sports watching

    Fods - Think Netflix for TV shows and movies.... but limitless.... everything is there.... for live TV it's not super, but it works. I watch 99% of my live sports on kodi.

    I bought a cheap PC with a decent graphic card and an HDMI out and hooked it straight to my TV. My internet plan allows me 400GB per month and I rarely break 100, even with 2 kids and various other devices

    So you get live sports ?

    Is it worth getting or better to download?

    I get live sports. Football and hockey.... quality isn't great, but it's watchable.

    With Kodi, you download "add-ons" that give you access to different things.... I have one called Sportsdevil which gives me streaming sites like Roja Directa and First Row Sports..... so I get the streams without the adds

    Cool, might look into that. I have always had foxtel (Sky Sports) and just downloaded/streamed what I couldn't get there.

    Moving house soon and unlikely to have Sky so will need different options.

    Cheers for the info

    There's some great addons on Kodi, you should get NJM-Soccer every English Premier League game live in SD or HD even Saturday 3pm kickoffs for free. Best part is it's 100% legal in the EU

    Torrents

    Morning lads,

    Do any of you out there use torrents to download films?

    The site I use (shaanig) has recently stopped muxing subtitles with their films, instead directing them to download the srt file separately which I find is a bit of a pain in the arse, particularly if you don't get the right version which puts the timing off.

    So I'm looking for another good website now to check for torrents?

    Cheers

    Never use torrents, lots of direct download sites if you want them?

    Thought posting on her about this was a no no tho?

    Talking about it is fine... It's sharing the links for downloading that's a no-no.

    Not the ones you use if you download them directly as I prefer torrents.

    Tough shit.... adapt or perish.... it's the way of life

    Seriously though.... if content was cheap and easily available, I wouldn't need to torrent or stream.... but if the only way I can get Game of Thrones or Walking dead is to subscribe to a ridiculously expensive cable tv package that costs a shit load of money and comes with 200 other channels I'm not interested in, then guess what I'm going to do instead....

    Oops, sorry Redders!

    In fairness, I've never really got into it until this year. May start looking into using the likes of Netflix instead though. It's just finding things with subtitles is a royal pain in the arse.

    Don't think Netflix will ever be really worth it on this side of the Atlantic. The subscription fee + number of users will never be high enough to have huge amounts of content, especially on the films side of things. The Netflix own brand programs are class but after that there is very little in terms of decent content.

    It is ridiculously convenient when you have a smart tv or viewing on a tablet/laptop
