Kodi is the new name for XBMC media center. "Leia" something will be the codename for version 18 of Kodi, just as "Krypton" was the codename for Kodi v17 and "Jarvis" was the codename for Kodi v16". You will often see "v18" and "Leia" used interchangeably in the community.

    Users’ Notes

    The official Kodi version does not contain any content what so ever. This means that you should provide your own content from a local or remote storage location, DVD, Blu-Ray or any other media carrier that you own. Additionally, Kodi allows you to install third-party plugins that may provide access to content that is freely available on the official content provider website. The watching or listening to illegal or pirated content which would otherwise need to be paid for is not endorsed or approved.

    There are some issues with Skins.
  • Fuse(Neue) looks great but when it first opens the menu is distorted and its menus have no ‘back/home’ button- so force closing the app is all to do
  • Xperience1080 and Amber menus have no ‘back/home’ button- so force closing the app is all to do
  • Transparency won’t download
  • Eminence 2.0 won’t download
  • Metropolis won’t install
  • Adonic gets stuck- redownload is the only fix.
