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


1 Settings

For Version 16 and below see Settings legacy

Choosing Settings from the Home Screen opens the Settings Window. 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:


Player Settings Media Settings PVR & Live TV settings Service settings
Interface Settings Skin Settings Profile settings System settings
System Information Event Log File Manager


2 Settings Level

There are four tiered settings levels where each level unlocks more settings, the levels are:

  • Basic
  • Standard (Default)
  • Advanced
  • Expert


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


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.
