Kodi for OS X runs natively on Mac OS X. OS X for Mac computers from Apple can provide hardware video decoding for H.264 and MPEG-2 video, though most CPUs are able to software decode other formats in 1080 as well. Macs can use the Apple TV remote, among others, for control of Kodi. An Intel Mac running OS X 10.7 (Lion) or higher is required for Kodi.

icon Supported hardware
Kodi is officially supported on a number of operating systems and hardware devices that are designed to be connected directly to a TV. Kodi runs well on what are relatively "underpowered" systems, thanks to hardware video decoding being common on nearly all supported platforms. These requirements don't include what might be required for some "advanced" features, such as PVR, which might require additional hardware.

2 Requirements

  • Kodi v17 requires Mac OS X 10.8 or later.
  • Kodi v18 (and its nightlies) will at least require 10.9)
  • All hardware requirements are the same as those for OS X 10.8. If your computer can run OS X 10.8 or later then your hardware should work just fine with Kodi.

3 How-tos

Extension:DynamicPageList (DPL), version 2.3.0 : Warning: No results.

4 Device specific info

Stop hand.png These pages are maintained by the community and should not be considered an endorsement or recommendation. Device pages are made when there's a bunch of useful information for a particular device, and someone takes the time to make that page. Keep in mind, some devices simply don't need a page of specific information, but are still excellent devices. *


5 Random notes

Feel free to place various notes, tips, and links here. As this section of the wiki gets more organized, those notes will be properly sorted. Consider this like a dumping ground for when you're not sure where to put something.
