Best Movies on Kodi

At its heart, Kodi (formerly XBMC) is all about movies. Old, new, popular, obscure; all movies are welcome here. The original program (Xbox Media Player) had three basic functions: picture display, music file playback and video file playback. The ability to stream content did not come until some time later. Now, movie and television streaming are the primary reason most people use Kodi. But with seemingly endless Kodi movie streaming options, which add-ons should you turn to if you want to maximize quality, functionality and simple number of movie options? This guide will walk you through what the 10 of the best Kodi addons for movies are, along with how to install them.

We’ve taken a look at 10 of the best add-ons for streaming movies through Kodi. For each one, we’ve given a short review on what you’ll find inside the add-on. Some add-ons can be found in the same repositories. Some have unique features, such as HD streaming or live streaming. Still others have movie libraries that put most Kodi movie streaming options to shame. All of the add-ons on our list are valuable in their own right, so you’ll likely want to consider each one.

We highly recommend using a VPN to keep your Kodi streaming habits private, and to help get around any geo-blocking that might be stopping you from accessing certain addons.

Exodus

New add-on Exodus is quickly gaining popularity. The UI is clean and downright pretty, while the library is vast. Exodus also has some of the most unique categories you’ll find. This includes the ability to search movies based on rating, Oscar winners, whether it was a Box Office hit and based on what other users are watching. Many of the films are provided with multiple streaming domains, and some are available in HD. Exodus is an extremely well put together add-on, and one you’re going to want to make your primary movie source.

*Note: Exodus is located in the Fusion Installer from TVADDONS. If you already have the Fusion Installer, simply install the “repository.exodus-x.x.zip” file to install “Exodus Repository”. Exodus is the only video add-on in this repo.

Phoenix

Phoenix has a bit of everything you’re looking for. That said, it’s options for all of those things are not watered down. Indeed, its movie offerings are pretty much second to none. While Phoenix connects to several different domains in order to stream its content, it provides the always-helpful search feature that allows you to dig into all of the domains it connects to. The search is fast as well, pulling up your search for “Blade” in no time. And yes, all three “Blade” movies are there. You’re welcome.

Movies4K.to

Movies4K has been at this for quite a long time. A Kodi add-on was a bit of an obvious step for the site. You’ll be able to connect directly to  the Movies4K.to vast library of movie options, one that only continues to grow with time. The Movies4k.to library is extremely well organized by genre, including one for Bollywood movies. Many of the films are even offered in both English and German translations. Yes, that includes Blade I, II and Trinity. There is a helpful search option so you can get directly to what you’re looking for. Movies4k.to has been at this for a while, and their streams are almost always up, working, and streaming in very good quality.

*Note: Movies4K.to is located in the Fusion Installer from TVADDONS. If you already have the Fusion Installer, simply install the “repository.eleazar-x.x.zip” file to install “nickat’s Kodi Add-on Repository”. Movies4K.to is the only video add-on in this repo.

Movie Hut

With a fairly nice interface and a wide selection of both new and old movies, Movie Hut is a great addition to your add-on library. The interface as all of the trimmings common among movie-focused add-ons, including a search option. However, this add-on also has a rare “Years” menu, so you can browse your films by year or decade, stretching back to 1968. This will help you locate all of those cheesy 80s road trip movies you’ve been longing to re-watch for the 100th time. “Harry and the Hendersons” awaits. One of the best things about Movie Hut is that it provides a movie poster image for each film. Some of the films also have a short description. This makes it a great option for those who want to discover some new films.

*Note: Movie Hut is located in the MetalKettles Addon Repository. If you already have this repository installed, you can locate it by going to Settings > Add-ons > Install from repository > MetalKettles Addon Repository.

Popcorn Time

While our list is not exactly ranked from best to worst, starting with Popcorn Time is almost a given. The return of the add-on is extremely welcomed, with the add-on quickly returning to its top spot as one of the best add-ons for Kodi movie streaming. Popcorn Time lives up to its name rather nicely. You’ll find a nice array of menus, and an extremely fine-tuned categorization method for the films. Everything from adventure down to a category for “news” is available. There is even a search option, which is unfortunately not common enough, but thankfully available here. Give in to your urge to search for “Blade”. The downside to Popcorn Time is that while it has returned to prime time, it’s still suffering from errors every now and again. It has not been able to shake its sordid past, so its domains will occasionally get taken down, yet again. If you’re OK dealing with the occasional headache of Popcorn Time giving you load errors, give this one a download.

Movie Mix

Movie Mix is a healthy contender among Kodi movie streaming add-ons. It’s often difficult for add-ons to distinguish themselves on this end. However, Movie Mix throws in a few unique features that might make it worthwhile. The first is a category for fashion shows. Admittedly, there’s only one film in there to date, but it at least shows some different thinking on the part of the creator. Secondly, and more importantly, this add-on connects you to Bollywood and Asian films. That add-on includes the requisite search feature, while also including some movie poster images and a few, sometimes small movie descriptions. Negatively, this add-on can be a bit slow to load. However, movies play well, although the stream quality is not always the best.

*Note: Movie Mix is located in the MetalKettles Addon Repository. If you already have this repository installed, you can locate it by going to Settings > Add-ons > Install from repository > MetalKettles Addon Repository.

  • Go to the “System” tab from your Kodi main screen.

Navi-X

Navi-X is one of the most unique add-ons available on Kodi. Accessing content can also be a bit confusing. Web scraping is at the heart of streaming add-ons. You’ll find Navi-X’s web scraper option under the “Start Here” section. From there, you’ll see a nice long list of sites that Navi-X is scraping from, including a healthy dose of movie websites. A little too much effort has been put into the UI perhaps, but Navi-X does delivery the goods. It’s best to simply download this add-on and explore everything it has going on. If nothing else, you’ll at least get a feel of what we mean when we say this add-on is unique.

*Note: Navi-X is located in the TVADDONS.ag Addon Repository. If you already have this repository installed, you can locate it by going to Settings > Add-ons > Install from repository > TVADDONS.ag Addon Repository.

  • Go to the “System” tab from your Kodi main screen.

iLiVE StreamLive 

iLiVE offers a good mixture of new movies alongside other streaming options. Although much more limited than many other movie-only streaming options, iLiVE is a great source for those hoping to catch some of the more recent movie releases in high quality.

Z-Pack

Z-Pack is a perfect source for those who want to catch up on the latest movies. Z-pack doesn’t have the largest library, nor does it have a lot of old movie choices. However, its new movie options are well placed stream in very good quality. The add-on could be helped by improving its features, but it could hardly be considering as overly lacking ether. This will easily be one of your go-to options for the latest movies, and can exist as a solid back-up in case one of your other add-ons goes down.

*Note: Z-Pack is located in the TVADDONS.ag Addon Repository. If you already have this repository installed, you can locate it by going to Settings > Add-ons > Install from repository > TVADDONS.ag Addon Repository.

Goodfellas

Goodfellas is a standard for those who want great streaming. This continues to hold true for its movie options. Goodfellas could use some work as far as categorization of those movies. It only has a small handful of categories that could easily be expanded to make it easier to find what you’re looking for. There is also no option to search for those movies, only compounding the difficulty in finding what you’re looking for. That said, the library is very large, and streaming through Goodfellas continues to have solid uptimes and little buffering.

  • Go to “System”. Then, proceed to click on “File Manager”.
  • Click on “Add source”.
  • Under “Add source”, select “<None>”. In the empty box, type in “http://www.goodfellasteam.com/Repository/”. Select “Done”. It will then prompt you to give the media source a name. You can name it anything, but the best option is to name it “Goodfellas. Select “OK” to move on.

  • Return to the home screen.
  • Click on “System”.
  • Under system, select “Add-ons”.
  • Go to “Install from zip file”.
  • Click on “Goodfellas” (this is this one you named).

  • Click on the repository folder. Then, click on the repository zip file.
  • You will receive a message that your add-on is enabled.
  • Go to the “Install from repository” section. Click it.

  • Select “Goodfellas”.
  • Click on “Program add-ons”.
  • Click on “Goodfellas”. Click on “Install”.

The Royal We

The Royal We was made to impress, and it does so rather well. You’ll find a rather attractive layout for The Royal We, with a large amount of movie streaming options in high quality and HD streams. The Royal We is extremely customizable, with tie-ins to several other services, including Trakt.tv. A Trakt.tv account will bring an interesting level of interconnectivity to the experience, allowing you to “track” you viewing across multiple platforms. You may find that the “genres” sections do not load any content. However, running a search for different movies will bring up a very large list. Each film has several sites listed to stream from, with many of them in high quality. Positively, The Royal We lets you know quality of the stream.

To install this add-on, do the following:

  • Go to “Programs”

Velocity

Velocity lives up to its name by helping you speed through the search process and find some pretty excellent movie streaming. The categorization is clean and easy to navigate. Each movie provides a healthy, long list of sources to stream, with many of them identified by whether they stream in in low, medium or high quality. Locating HD streams is not easy, however, as most are not actually labeled as such. Finally, Velocity also has Trakt integration, for those who enjoy using that service. One key benefit to Velocity is that it provides you with a view count for many streams. This should give you a good idea as to which streams are more likely to work.

To install this add-on, do the following:

  • Go to “Programs”.
  • Go to “Addon Installer”.
  • Go to “Go to “Velocity”.

  • Install “Velocity”.
  • You will now find this add-on under “Videos > Add-ons”.

SALTS (Stream All the Sources)

SALTS is a direct competitor and analogue for Exodus. Both are multi-scrappers that will search through sometimes over 50 sources to connect you to a stream. SALTS is great for pretty much any movie type you’re looking for. However, to get higher quality movie streams, you’ll want to change the settings so that SALTS prioritizes high-quality streams first.

To install SALTS onto Kodi, do the following:

  • Go to “Programs”.
  • Go to the “Addon Installer”.
  • Go to the “Featured Addons”.
  • Select “SALTS”. Install it.
