Hope this was not posted before, but Torrentfreak picked up (again) on one of the latest blog posts regarding Kodi & piracy:

Not sure, if this is the thread you wanted to have this: https://www.sossolutions.nl/xbmc-spelers/op-basis-van-raspberry-pi/model-2b

It's a dutch site which is selling raspberry PIs specifically communicating that it is for free content. It's fully installed with Navi and other sh*t

Nope. This is only for news and other articles.

Quote:It is interesting because of the fact that Kodi’s official developers have actually spoken against these type of addons, however it remains the main use of the majority of Kodi users.

I'd love to see how the author came to that conclusion. Perhaps he asked all 14 million users personally?

I find comments about it looking like Plex to be super irritating. Mostly because I don't think the two devs behind the look have ever seen plex. If anything, it looks like Android TV's leanback or Netflix.

PC and Tech Authority and APC Magazines in Australia give Kodi a plug a lot.

Wow, what a horrible article. That guy doesn't understand anything if he honestly thinks that the core Kodi project can be held accountable for DMCA violations of third party add-ons. He almost seemed to get it, but seems to imply with every paragraph that Kodi is "wink wink, nudge" for those add-ons, and compares Kodi to limewire and the Pirate Bay (not saying those two did anything right or wrong, but Kodi isn't even a file sharing service! It's.... *brain explodes*).

This is why I hate it when bloggers pretend to be journalists.

I almost NEVER post on this forum although I'm a long long time Kodi user, and I came here today just to post about that insane article, but I'm glad someone was already talking about it.

I don't mind negative articles, when they are properly researched and relatively accurate, but this thing starts off skirting the edge and then decidedly goes off into the weeds, and when I see a sentence like the following:

"Once all this Kodi software gets downloaded, how do people actually watch pirated content? One option is to mirror it onto a TV using an HDMI adapter or Google Chromecast. Another is to actually hack a streaming player and program Kodi onto it."

It seriously calls into question the ability of the author to get anything right, or even in fact try..

"Program Kodi onto it..Huh?? WTF does that even mean.. I'll tell you what it means, it means the poor excuse for a blogger who fancies himself a tech journalist takes time off from trolling youtube comment threads to write a quick article from the confines of his parents basement..

I actually responded to his twitter post about it, and I have never responded negatively to anything on any social media, but this just put me over the edge. Kodi has an amazing legacy and has always been an inspiration to me as a wonderfully creative open source project done right. To see this kind of disservice done out of pure incompetence or just plain laziness burns me up...

Ok.. sorry for the rant.. I'm going to go an stream some music using Kodi from my legitimate Pandora account and remind myself that opinions are like a**holes and move on.. thank you for your time..

I've never heard downloading from Google Play being referred to as programming Kodi onto an Android device before. I had no idea downloading from Google Play was so difficult! Ditto for installing an exe in Windows or dmgs in OSX. Evidently I'm MUCH smarter than I thought I was!

I'm impressed, that article is spot on.
