How to use Kodi on a Mac

Using Kodi on a Mac is as simple as moving your mouse around and clicking on what you want to select - it's only when you want to browse and install add-ons that things get a little bit confusing. There is, however, a way that you can easily browse almost every add-on available at once, and that's by using Addon Installer. But before you can install Addon Installer, you must add it's repository to your Kodi. To do that, follow these instructions:

  1. Open Kodi, navigate to the System tab and select 'File manager'.
  2. Double click 'Add Source' to add a new repository.
  3. Select 'None', replace it with the following URL: and click done, name the repository and click OK to add it.

That should add Fusion as a repository on Kodi, allowing you to install the Addon Installer. Next, we'll show you how to install and use the installer, which acts as an App Store for third-party add-ons:

Go back to the Home Screen, select System > Settings > Add-Ons.

  1. Select 'Install from Zip file', double click Fusion, open the 'start-here' folder and install "" (the version number may be different depending on when you read this).
  2. Return to the Home screen, select Programs and open Addon Installer. This will install the add-on to Kodi, allowing you to browse the vast selection of add-ons available.
  3. Once installed, double click the Addon Installer icon to open it and start browsing the available add-ons. Once you find one you like, click it to install it and use it.

That's about it! You'll be using Kodi for all your media streaming needs in no time.
