Home icon grey.png   ▶ Remote controls ▶ Keymap

Keyboard.xml is a XML base keymap file that define the mappings of keys (keyboard keys, mouse/remote/joysticks buttons and more) to XBMC actions. Keyboard.xml was first introduced in XBMC 10 ("Dharma"), in versions prior to that it was called Keymap.xml.

1 Customizing keymaps through the GUI

Users can customize keymaps for remotes in GUI by using the community Keymap Editor add-on.

2 Location of keymaps

User modified keymap files are stored in the "keymaps" folder in the userdata folder:

2.1 Defaults

Default keymaps are included when Kodi is installed, but users should not edit those install files directly. Instead, place user modified keymaps in the userdata/keymaps/ directory.

Kodi can process multiple keymap files and does so like this:

  • All *.xml files from the default install settings and userdata/kemaps/ folders are applied as keymaps.
  • All *.xml files are processed in alphabetical order.
  • Keymaps defined in an .xml file add to or override mappings in previous .xml file.
  • Keymaps defined in the userdata folder add to or override mappings in the global keymap.

By default there will be no files in these locations, so grab one from the link below to make a new one/over-ride: Default keymaps shipped with Kodi

3 Structure

There is one global keymap and several window-specific keymaps.
XBMC falls back to the global map when the window-specific map hasn't bound the key being pressed.

The format of keymapping files is as follows:





    <joystick name="PLAYSTATION(R)3 Controller (00:1B:FB:F6:E0:F2)">
      <button id="15">Select</button>




As you can see, it's divided into a <global> section, and a number of window sections (such as <Home>).
A list of the available window names can be seen here. The WINDOW can also be a custom window formatted as <windowId#> (e. g. <window1113>).
Each of these sections can contain Gamepad, Remote, Keyboard, Universal Remote, and custom Joystick sections.

The format for mapping a particular key under one of these device types is as follows:


4 Keynames

Depending on your device you will need to use a specific "keyname".

4.1 Gamepads

An up to date list of the available actions can be found in the source code of XBMC in ButtonTranslator.cpp where the TranslateGamepadString() function does the work.



4.2 Remotes

An up to date list of the available actions can be found in the source code of XBMC in ButtonTranslator.cpp where the TranslateRemoteString() function does the work.



4.3 Universal Remotes

To map Universal Remote buttons using the RCA infrared protocol, you may add <universalremote> sections to keymap.xml.
In this case, the tags used are <obc#> where # is the original button code (OBC) of the button.
You would put it inside a <universalremote> section in the <window> or <global> sections.


Will map Stop Playback to the RCA DVD repeat button <obc148>, which is not used by XBMC by default.
  • Note: ensure that the <universalremote> section is NOT added 'within' the <remote> section - it can appear before or after. Otherwise it will not be recognised and produces errors in the logfile.

Remote keys can be observed in the xbmc.log file (~/.xbmc/temp/xbmc.log on Linux) when debugging is enabled in the GUI (Settings -> debugging ). The list of pre-defined OBC codes can be found at XBIRRemote.h.

4.4 Keyboards

Valid keyboard keymap syntax includes <keyname>, <key id="">, and <keyname mod="">.

Mapping for arbitrary key codes can be configured using the following syntax:

<key id="123">

where "123" is replaced by the key code.

A full list of valid keynames can be found in


  <key id="123">action</key> -- id is the keys keycode. >
  <a mod="shift,alt">action</a> -- corresponds to shift-alt-a, the mod="" syntax is enabled since build 26407. >
  <space>action</space> -- for a complete list of valid keynames, see ButtonTranslator.cpp or List of {{subst:Name}} keynames above. >
  • shift
  • alt
  • ctrl

4.5 Custom Joystick Configuration

Custom joysticks are defined using the following syntax:

<joystick name="JOYSTICK NAME">
  <button id="BUTTON ID">action</button>

Getting the joystick name:

  • On linux: 'cat /proc/bus/input/devices'
  • or see your xbmc log file

Getting the button ids:

  • 'id' is the button ID used by SDL. Joystick button ids of connected joysticks appear in xbmc.log when they are pressed. Use your log to map custom buttons to actions.


<joystick name="PLAYSTATION(R)3 Controller (00:1B:FB:F6:E0:F2)">
  <button id="15">Select</button>
  <button id="14">PreviousMenu</button>

5 Actions

The most recent available actions can be found in the TranslateActionString() method in in ButtonTranslator.cpp.

For those debugging integer action codes from the debug log, the mapping of action codes to constants is in Key.h

In addition to the following actions, you can also use Built-in scripting in XBMC.

6 Windows

This table cross-references Window names, Window definitions, and Window ID. The code that performs the cross-reference is found in and

  • keymap.xml uses the Window name.
  • Kodi's C++ code uses the Window definitions and Window ID's.
  • ActivateWindow() should use the Window name.
  • sounds.xml should use the window name

You can use secondary parameters with all media windows, as can be seen here:
