SuperRepo: The Easiest Way to Customize Kodi


What is SuperRepo?

SuperRepo is the largest repository of addons for the Kodi entertainment system. Addons allow you to add functionality to an existing piece of software (in this case the Kodi media player) to make it do new, useful things. In this repository, you’ll find thousands of addons that let you do everything from displaying lyrics as you play your music to adding subtitles to your favorite movie. SuperRepo also contains a variety of Kodi skins and themes, which allow you to customize your media player to look and behave exactly the way you want it to. Want to scrape information from IMDB as you’re watching a new movie? SuperRepo has a Kodi addon for that – you’ll have the names of all the actors and actresses available at the click of a button. Want to keep track of the weather while you’re watching or listening? There’s an addon for that, too!

What is Kodi?

To understand the power of the SuperRepo respository, it’s useful to take a closer look at Kodi. Kodi is free, open source (GPL) entertainment software that can be downloaded and used on Windows, OSX, Linux, Raspberry Pi, iOS, and Android. With Kodi, you can listen to all kinds of music, including flac, mp3, wma, and wav formats. You can also watch movies, either from an online streaming source, or from files on your hard drive. Kodi will let you keep track of which episodes of your favorite TV show you’ve watched so you don’t lose your place mid-season. The system’s interface also makes it easy to watch and record live TV from a variety of different sources. With beautiful web interfaces to bring the internet to your media player, and remote control apps for smartphones and tablets, Kodi can’t be beat for convenience.

Note that Kodi doesn’t provide media itself – it relies on you, the user, to provide audio, video, and photographic content, which it will then serve up to you on a flashy, but user-friendly, interface. Kodi can also be connected to third party media sources, like Netflix or Hulu.

Where can I download Kodi?

The Kodi software can be downloaded at https://kodi.tv/download. It’s free for anyone to use, although the developers do appreciate donations. There’s a place to donate on the download page if you feel so inclined.

How do SuperRepo and Kodi work together?

On its own, Kodi is a complete, operational system. Many users decide they’d like to customize it, though, and add new functionalities. This is where the SuperRepo repository comes in. When used together, Kodi and SuperRepo addons create a cutting edge entertainment system that is highly customizable.
