Web interfaces allow users to control and interact with their XBMC/Kodi installation through a web browser. This can be used for a remote control, library management, visual feedback, and many other things.
1 Turning on the web interface
The webserver is disabled by default and has to be manually enabled by the user. This can be done in Basic Access Authentication. Furthermore a Web interface can be chosen which will be used when accessing the webserver without any specific path.. The settings allow to specify a custom port number and an optional username and password for HTTP's
2 Using the web interface
There are two options to use any given web interface:
2.1 Default web interface
To set a web interface add-on as the default web UI, go toand select that add-on for the Default value. Then go to the hostname (or IP address) of that HTPC+Port number.
2.2 Using multiple web interfaces at once
http://188.8.131.52:8080 is your local IP for accessing your default web interface add-on. You can access the other web interface add-ons you have installed by going to
http://184.108.40.206:8080/addons/ where you will see a directory listing.
