Use Kodi To Get Rid Of Your Cable Or Satellite Bill

Here’s a quick instructional how-to video on how to setup Kodi on a Windows PC. Kodi is software that lets you stream movies over the Internet. You have access to live streams and pay TV that you would normally have to pay a subscription to watch. Basically anything you find on a torrent site will be available to stream on Kodi.

For this video I am using the Paradox build of Kodi.

Here is the site you need to register at to get your username and password:

Chromecast Unboxing, Setup and Review

I somehow managed to score a free Chromecast, so I thought I would quickly set one up and see how it works.

If you don’t know what a Chromecast is, it is basically a small device that plugs into the HDMI port of any TV and gives it functionality similar to a Smart TV. It allows you to stream things like Netflix, Youtube, etc. You can control it using your smartphone or tablet.

In this video I borrowed some footage from Dee and Dave, check out their channel here.

 

New Mediabrowser (Emby) Plugin for MoviePosterApp

A new version of MoviePosterApp has been released that includes a plugin to integrate it with Mediabrowser 3 (Emby).

Check out these links to my past videos to learn more about this free software:

Now when you start up a movie on Mediabrowser, your flat screen display will automatically change to display the movie poster for the current movie, and will also show the approximate end time of the movie.
