Restrictions of Kodi on Xbox one
Being the most used media player, Kodi still has a long way to go. It has some flaws/restrictions on various platforms. The devs are still working on it. We can expect a lot of future updates from Kodi. It had recently launched the next version “LEIA”. But still, it’s not so famous among Kodi users. So the following section contains restrictions of Kodi on Xbox one or Xbox 360.
- Kodi doesn’t have access to the Blu-ray drive. And it can’t play contents from the external drive. Devs are working on them. Most of the users use kodi for streaming movies, TV shows, and Live events. So this doesn’t seem to be a big bug.
- Users also reported certain issues while streaming contents from Ad-hoc/local network. Since the file transfer protocol used by kodi and windows or mac are different. So it is difficult to transfer files between an ad-hoc network. Hopefully, there is a fix for it. You can set the windows/mac as UPnP server. By doing so, you can access the files via any of the kodi installed device.
These are some restrictions of using Kodi on Xbox. Hope it will be fixed over time. And hope the next update will be much greater. And Kodi has successfully completed one revolution around the tech gadgets. At 2002, it was released as Xbox Media Centre (XBMC). And in January 2018Kodidi was released for Xbox One and Xbox 360.
