We have completely updated the way the Media Center (formerly labeled FTMC/Kodi) application looks and have added many new features to it.
We really wanted to make the app easier to use. The new update will make it much easier to find all of your favorite streams.
Overall you will notice that this new skin looks a lot like the old one, but with some useful upgrades.
We’re going to break down each of the new sections on the skin as well as added functions.
The Movies section will contain add-ons that contain movies. (Pretty self-explanatory, we know.) We will update this section with the best Movie add-ons moving forward.
You can click on Movies and it will bring you directly into the movie section of an addon that we choose.
You can click on Search Movies and it will bring you to the search page of an addon that we choose.
You will also notice a widgets menu at the top of the screen. This will load up with popular titles when you leave it on the movie section. This will update as new titles become popular.
A great feature of the Movie widget is that you can click directly on a title and it will begin to look for sources for that stream.
Please Note – The widget loading speed varies based on your internet speed and the add-on server load. Please be patient for the widgets to load.
The TV Shows section will contain add-ons that have TV Shows available to view. We will update this section with the best TV Show add-ons moving forward.
You can click on TV Shows and it will bring you directly into the movie section of an addon that we choose.
You can click on Search TV Shows and it will bring you to the search page of an addon that we choose.
The TV Shows section will also have a widget area at the top of the screen. This shows popular TV show pulled from the chosen add-on. You can click directly on the titles at the top of screen to view streaming sources.
Please Note – The widget loading speed varies based on your internet speed and the addon server load. Please be patient for the widgets to load.
The Sports section will contain addons that have links to sports and other live events. This section does not have any kind of widget.
You can also click on sports and it will bring you to a predetermined section of an add-on that we choose at the time we create a new update. We will always make sure that we choose the most stable add-ons.
The Live TV section will contain addons that contain Live TV streams. Most addons will most likely not be solely dedicated to Live TV, but they will contain a Live TV section within them.
Click on Live TV will bring you to a specific section of an addon that we choose at the time of creating an update. Please note that Live TV is very unstable and things change very quickly. If you are clicking on Live TV and the section we chose has gone down for whatever reason, the best thing to do is to back out and explore the addons below.
We created this section for our customers who subscribe to Real Debrid. This section will contain add-ons that allow real debrid to be integrated with them and will list Real Debrid links for stream sources. This section makes it very easy to integrate these services.
Setup RD/Trakt Tab – This tab will open up the accounts section of an add-on that will allow you to link up your Real Debrid and Trakt account. Linking up these accounts will add them to the URL Resolver which integrates both of these services across many of the add-ons within the Real Debrid section. Please note that some add-ons will need to have these services linked up individually within that particular addon.
This section will show you all of the add-ons that are installed on your box that may or may not be listed in any of the sections outlined in the sections of this article. This will also be where you will find any add-ons that you add on your own.
Important! – We did not create an Adult add-ons section to keep those add-ons discreet. So if you choose the Adult version, any adult based add-ons will be located in the All Add-ons section.
The Music section will contain music based addons. Clicking on Music will bring you to an addon section that we choose at the time of creating an update.
The Utilities section will contain addons that can be used by more advanced users for various purposes. If you are new to the media center we would suggest not messing around in here as you mess up your box and have to start over.
Sleep – This is a nifty little addon that can be used to set a sleep timer to shut down the media center after a specified amount of time or when the video you are watching is over. After the media center closes you can just turn off your TV and go to sleep.
The System section contains the settings portion of the media center. This section is only for advanced users.
There are plenty of ways you can mess up the media center in this section by tinkering. We have already set all of the best settings for you, there is no need to go into this section unless you are a power user and know what you are doing.
We spent a lot of time trying to make this new user interface look great visually and offer a simple and satisfying experience. We truly hope that you enjoy it!
