Kodi is a popular media player to manage videos, photos and audio content that may reside on a computer, optical disc, on the Internet or on any PC in the local network. Until August of last year, Kodi was known as XBMC. The latter was created as a media center for the first generation Xbox game consoles, but later released on desktop platforms as well as iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV.
A key feature of Kodi is native support for hardware encoding/decoding with scaling the image to fit the display. This component is so flexible that allows you to broadcast to your iPhone or iPad uncompressed video at 1080p with virtually no loss of frames.
In order to use the media player on the iPhone and iPad, use the instructions for installing Kodi on iOS 9.
