This section covers the various settings in legacy versions of Kodi (Version 16 and below).

GUI Settings

Most of Kodi's global settings can be configured via the GUI (Graphical User Interface) under Settings (labeled "System" under the default skin, Confluence).

Choosing Settings from the Home Screen opens the Settings Window. In this window, you are able to configure Kodi's options:

icon Appearance
icon Videos
icon Live TV
Settings/Live TV v16
icon Music
icon Pictures
icon Weather
Kodi uses add-ons to provide weather information. You can select from various global and regional weather add-ons and customize various location options.
icon Add-on manager
The Add-on manager's purpose is to manage the various add-ons to the Kodi application. It can be browsed like any other section and the various installed/uninstalled, enabled/disabled add-ons. In the Add-on manager you can also change the settings for auto update, notifications and search for installed add-ons by bringing up the slide in submenu (press left to show/hide). The Add-on manager is not where you go to run add-ons, but only to install and configure them.
icon Services
Settings/Services v16
icon System
Settings/System v16

Additional Settings

icon Video OSD settings
Some video playback settings can (currently) only be accessed while playing a video back and accessing the on-screen-display. For more info see Video playback. These include subtitle and audio track selection, zoom (aspect ratio) options, and more.
icon Media sources
Media sources and scrapers control what files are listed in Kodi and what is scanned into the library. These settings can also control what information is pulled from the internet.
icon Add-on settings
Each Add-on has its own specific settings which can be adjusted by the user. To access the Settings page of an add-on, locate and highlight the add-on in the Add-on Browser, call up the Context Menu and select Settings.
icon Profiles
Profiles allow users to save all of settings as a profile and change them at the touch of a button. It also allows you to grant access to specific folders and network shares based on the profile being used. This is ideal for systems that have multiple users. It works much the same as setting up individual users on your home computer.
