Home icon grey.png   ▶ Settings

This section covers Kodi's various settings and where to find them.


1 Settings

Choosing Settings from the Main Menu opens the Settings Window shown below. This is the current Settings screen for Kodi v17.x.

In this window, you are able to configure Kodi's options.

Click on the relevant icon to navigate to the wiki page describing the settings for that section e.g. click player settings icon to be taken to page describing the player settings:


File managerSettings/Add-onsSettings/System informationEvent LogSettings/PlayerSettings/MediaSettings/Live TVSettings/ServicesSettings/GamesSettings/InterfaceSettings/ProfilesSettings/SystemSettingsOverview-leia.png
About this image


Settings for v16 and below can be found here... Settings legacy


2 Settings Level

The "Settings level" can be changed using the button in the bottom left which shows the currently selected level. SettingsSettingsLevel-leia.png


Settings Levels
Note that there are four tiered settings levels where each level unlocks more settings, the levels are:

  • Basic
  • Standard (Default)
  • Advanced
  • Expert



3 Advanced settings

The advancedsettings.xml file, which does not exist by default, can be created by a user in their userdata folder.

This file is used for advanced settings and options that do not have GUI controls inside of Kodi. Some settings are experimental or very rarely set, so they can only be used via the advancedsettings.xml file. The file is simply a plain text file and can be edited by various text editors, so long as the name is "advancedsettings.xml". These advanced settings can be used to tweak various things such as episode naming patterns, special network ports, special behaviors, and more.
