We all know that Kodi's development team is hard at work when it comes to supporting a vast number of platforms. As you can already guess, you can install Kodi on your Mac as a native application, taking full advantage of advanced macOS' gestures and controls. And yes - we're here to teach you how to get started with this home theater software.
This entire procedure won't take more than a few moments of your time. However, we want you to go into it prepared, so make sure to read this guide carefully, starting with the special segment just below.
Kodi 19 ‘Matrix’ is the latest available major version of the application (Kodi 19.1, Kodi 19.2, Kodi 19.3, and Kodi 19.4 were also released). Still, if you haven’t updated Kodi yet, know that the latest version breaks compatibility with a large number of add-ons.
You’ll need to wait for third-party developers to make their add-ons compatible with Kodi 19, which could take a while. We’ve seen some progress when it comes to add-ons from Kodi’s official repository. However, the situation is still very problematic for add-ons that come from outside Kodi’s repository.
In general, Kodi is a lightweight application. It doesn’t need the latest processor or a powerful graphics card. Here’s an overview of the official requirements regarding running Kodi on a Mac.
As said earlier, there's only one way to install Kodi on a Mac, and that is by downloading its DMG file (from the official website). Here are the required steps.
Once you try Kodi on macOS, we're sure you'll want to install this application on other devices as well. So, here's how that's done on Windows, Linux, Android, and iOS or iPadOS. And also, Kodi works great on Fire TV, Roku, Nvidia Shield TV, smart TVs, Xbox, Chromebooks, Apple TV, Raspberry Pi, and other devices and platforms.
Aside from teaching you how to install Kodi on your Mac, we also want to give you a few pointers on how to use it. With this said, we think you'll find the following resources to be helpful, so check them out.
