The final version of Kodi 15.0, named Isengard, has been released by the talented folks over at the XBMC Foundation. It’s now available across all platforms, including Android which runs perfectly on the Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick. In addition to being packed full of bug fixes and performance enhancements, the new version of Kodi features several great new features.
One of my favorite new features is adaptive seeking. One previous version of Kodi, pressing the RIGHT or LEFT directional buttons on the Fire TV remote caused the video to skip forward or backward 30 seconds. Pressing either button now causes the video to jump 10 seconds, but if you press the directional button again before the skip occurs, the 10 second skip is replaced with a 30 second skip. Pressing again bumps it up to 1 minute, then 3 minutes, and so on. So you can dial in exactly how far forward or back you want to skip by how many times you press the directional button.
Some other new features are a new chapter selection window that lets you visually see the available scenes, a new audio and subtitle list, expanded international preferences, an improved add-on manager, less restrictive library scanning that now allows you to perform library operations like “mark as watched” while the main library update is in progress, and many more.
You can install Kodi 15.0 on top of Kodi 14.x without losing any of your settings or data. Just be sure to use the
