Although not usually a gadget that many houses you have, the truth is that mediacenters ever sold more and alongside the smart-tv and tablets are one of the entertainment devices most used or at least indicate statistics Youtube and Spotify. And it seems that one of the oldest software in this sector wants to become gadget to compete with other gadgets in the industry.
Thus, Kodi has presented its case for Raspberry Pi 3, a custom housing with the official colors and logos Kodi but also adapted to the most famous plate, Raspberry Pi. Thus, this case with Kodi 17 and Raspberry Pi 3 shall be a tough competitor for gadgets like MiBox 3 Roku or Apple TV. In addition Kodi you plan to create a special version for Raspberry Pi to be included in Kodi 17 but you can already try through nightlies versions through the special version that was created in time for Raspberry Pi but is not fully optimized.
Kodi can be a great alternative to Apple TV and also free
Kodi special housing will be worth $ 19, an affordable price linked to the price of Raspberry Pi and cables, we have a mediacenter for less than 65 euros, a price lower than the Apple TV. But the good thing about this mediacenter not be its price but its software. With Kodi we can display virtually everything from Youtube to use PopCorn Time (for those outside the law), a freedom that appeals to users and allow use this mediacenter for what the user wants and not what you want the company device as is currently the case with the Apple TV, the Fire OS or My Box.
I personally like the idea that Kodi or liable to a device that rivals Fire OS or Apple TV, although it is also true that we can opt for the less optimized option on a Raspberry Pi 3 create a similar mediacenter why not?
