Raspberry Pi is the perfect option for people, who would like to use Kodi, but do not want to pay almost $100 for Google Box or other compatible device. Today, we are going to teach you how to install Kodi on Raspberry Pi.
Install Kodi on Raspberry Pi: detailed instuctions.
First, you need to download OSMC, which is great tool for providing the devices like Raspberry Pi with interface that allows you interact with the hardware and install Kodi. We recommend you to use official web-site that is located at https://osmc.tv/
Here you can pick the version of OSMC that is compatible with your operating system.
After this, you need to insert SD-card into your PC. Most of notebooks have in-built card reader, but you can also use remote one, if you device does not have such a feature. They are pretty cheap, so everyone can afford it.
When SD-card is connected to your device, you should launch OSMC.
Here you can pick from wide range of languages and devices, but we need to install Kodi on Raspberry Pi, so follow our instructions.
This is the windows that allows you to choose the version of software and we highly recommend you to pick the latest one.
As far as you can see, OSMC allows you to install user interface software on several remote device like USB sticks, but we need to choose the SD-card option.
In most of cases, you want to connect the Raspberry Pi to network directly, but there is an option for wireless connection too! Advanced users may also configure it manually.
Here you need to pick the proper drive. Note that amount of free space depend on the volume of your SD-card, so the image may be different from the one than you can see on the screenshot.
License agreement is default, so just make the tip and go on!
Download and entire installing process may take some time, so you may just go for a while and make yourself a cup of tea.
Now, when installation is complete, you need to insert the SD-card into your Raspberry Pi.
It should be inserted just like on the photo, so be extremely attentive.
Now it is time to plug all the cables in. Since Raspberry Pi is similar to PC, you may control it with keyboard or mouse that were connected via USB. HDMI should be connected with your monitor and Ethernet cable is plugged from your router. As we have already mentioned, Wi-Fi connection is an option too, but it requires special settings in OSMC.
When you turn the power on, the installation process begins.
Now it is done. You may continue using the default skin or change it for the one that is more suitable for you.
At this moment, you know how to install Kodi on Raspberry Pi. It was pretty easy, huh? Now you should install all your favorite add-ons and start using the app itself.
