Kodi is an open-source media streaming app for home entertainment, which is now the favorite of many people across the globe. For those who are trying to get Kodi, it is essential to know the setting up process in detail. Kodi is now available for almost all operating systems. Kodi is also compatible with various devices like Nvidia SHIELD Android TV, Amazon FireTV, different set-top boxes, etc.

Installing Kodi for Windows

You can go to the Windows Store by signing up/in with your Microsoft account and can click on the ‘Get the App’ icon to install. If you want to get it as an executable file, then click on the “Installer” and then run it once it’s downloaded.

installing Kodi for MacOS

First, go to the Kodi.tv official download website. You can choose Mac OS in the list of compliant platforms. Once the installer download is completed, you have to double-click on the downloaded file to do Kodi setup which will further extract the disk images. You may next simply drag and drop the application in the application folder of your Mac. Then just click on it to launch your Kodi app. You may get a message sometimes that Mac won’t allow you to launch applications from any unknown developers. You may simply disable it.

Best free VPNs for Ubuntu

Ubuntu is an efficient Linux platform with widespread distributions. Being a free and open-source OS, it has many editions as Ubuntu Core, Ubuntu Desktop, and Ubuntu Server. In this article, we are discussing some good free VPNs which can be paired with Ubuntu for safe internet access.

1. Hide Me

Hide Me is a free VPN, which also has some paid plans with premium features. The VPN scores on top of all listings for top Ubuntu VPN services. Offering top security with encryption, Hide Me can also unblock many international contents for you.

2. SaferVPN

SaferVPN also offers optimum security and privacy to the users. Despite being Linux (Ubuntu) being very secure naturally, it is beneficial for you to get an additional layer of security through a reliable VPN like Safer.

3. Hotspot Shield

Hotspot Shield is a freemium VPN and one of the most popular choices among Ubuntu users. The paid version is far better than the free version, but it doesn't mean that the base version is bad. The problem for users may be that the free version runs some ads.

Express VPN, NordVPN, etc. are also some options to choose in free VPN for Ubuntu.

Installing Kodi on Android

You can install it directly from the Google Play Store by accessing it from an Android smartphone. Just search for Kodi and click on the Install button. Otherwise, you can also download the Kodi APK for Android and then run the installation manually. For this, also enable the installation from unknown sources to avoid an error message.

Installing Kodi on Amazon Firestick

Fire TV and Firestick can also perform better with the installation of Kodi. There are multiple methods to install Kodi on to these devices. Enable the installation of apps from unknown sources first. You need to boot up the downloader and go to installed apps to see the downloader. Just copy-paste the URL of Kodi app, and you will land on a web page with Kodi installation link. You can also see various Kodi versions and choose the apt version.

Similarly, you can install Kodi for Android TV, iPhone, iPad, etc. too.
