So you have your brand spanking new Kodi android TV box, and you really love that you are just a few clicks away from great TV, movies and other streamed content. What now though? Is that really all you can do with these great boxes that many see as the future of entertainment? Not at all. In the following post we show you some of the easy, but great ways you can really get the most out of your Kodi box.
Watch You Tube On Your Kodi Box
If you are a fan of music or like watching funny clips, or segments from your favourite shows using You Tube,you may not have known that you can actually install The You Tube app/add-on. That is unless your box already comes with You Tube pre-installed, a trend that is becoming more commonplace. If you can get your hands on a USB keyboard to use instead of your remote, we recommend that you do as it will enhance the experience and make it less complicated to search for things on apps like You Tube.
Transfer Content From Your Phone To Your Kodi Box
You may not have heard of Pushbullet yet, but after reading this we are sure you will want to download and install the app soon after – it really is that good. Pushbullet is essentially one of the most versatile and easiest to use device-bridging services we have ever come across. It is most commonly know as being used to send data from PC to mobile phone and vice versa, but it also can be used effectively with your Kodi box.
How does it actually work? Well, let’s say we are browsing the internet from our phone or perhaps even our computer and we hear an audio clip, see an image or a video and want to view it on our television. You just need to long press on the piece of content or right click the icon and then use the “Push this to Kodi” button to view your bookmarked piece of content on your television. If you think that’s all there is to it, be prepared to love this app even more.
You can even set up Pushbullet to work with Kodi in different ways, including having phone notifications displayed on your television and setting a special trigger that will stop whatever your watching and pause it when your phone rings.
View BBC iPlayer On Kodi
There is an official BBC iPlayer that you may not have seen yet. So if you are a fan of EastEnders, Dr Who and so much more of the great content that BBC airs throughout the year, you can use the app through your Kodi box and never miss anything again.
