We always get asked what’s the best version of Kodi for Android, so in this post we will look at what is the best Media centre for your Smart TV box or Phone. If you want to know what Kodi is check out our “Kodi Setup Guide” it will explain more about Kodi is and how it works. Kodi formally known as XBMC has many different builds / versions it can become confusing knowing what is the best for your device and what will give you the best performance.
The best version of Kodi for Android is EBox MC (EBMC)
I know you’re thinking it should be Kodi 16.1 right? Well sorry to break the bad news but Kodi has been very slow to develop the Android side of its software, this is mainly due to Pirate Box seller’s fully loading Android boxes then selling them on sites like eBay and Amazon. Also the main Android developer (koying) Kodi had working on the team left due to in house fighting. The good news is Koying has now developed his own version of Kodi called SPMC, this solely is a dedicated to Android. In this post we will show you how to upgrade Kodi /EBMC. SPMC has many features and bug fixes for Android then the official Kodi 16.1 build is offering. Due to the lack of support for Android we are now going to build EBox MC from SPMC not Kodi. Therefore, EBox MC based on SPMC 16.6.0 is by far the best version of Kodi for Android.
What’s the difference between XBMC, Kodi, SPMC, EBox MC
The main difference is the name, “all these media centres work in exactly the same way” you can add 3rd party add-ons allowing you to access content through the internet. They will also allow you to play any media file you have on a local drive. The other main difference is they have different fixes. Kodi will always be the best version if you’re installing it on Windows or other supported devices. But as I pointed out earlier Kodi is not too keen on supporting Android, so you are better off using our EBox MC as it will perform better on your Android device.
