I said it earlier that Ancloud p5 android box has a plan B that takes care of the present and handles the future. Ancloud p5 android box is best used when purchased with its premium homelive account.However, ancloud also cater fr those who cannot afford homelive subscription or for emergency situations for example maybe your homelive account expires and you do not have moeny to subscribe immediately, then you can watch contents on xbmc / kodi on your ancloud. kodi / xbmc contents are so clear and also without freezing(though soem movie links in xbmc will show pop-up adds and ask for captcha). Ancloud comes bundled with both homelive app and kodi app which caters for both premium contents and free ones respectively. All you need to do is to use the idea here on this article to get some addon installed on your device.
Third party contents like Apk and addons / plugins have the tendencies of harming your android box if not handled specially. The most dangerous addons for kodi xbmc are porn addon. Lemmy Morgan will not be held responsible for any third party addon you download online and install to your device which subsequently causes massive or light damage to your device. Secondly, all the addons that i shall be listing here has been tested only on ancloud p5 without issues. They are meant to work for all android boxes that supports xbmc but I am answerable only to ancloud p5 box.
IMPORTANT NOTICE AND PRE-REQUISITES
- If you are an ancloud user, you must quit your kodi totally or restart your device when you are done watching kodi contents or else your device may hang / or lag.
- If you are an Ancloud user and you started with homelive premium account and it expires and you switch to kodi, you will notice the frustration and inconvenience(e.g missing links, pop-ups on some addons ond long processes to watch just a channel)
- Kodi / xbmc has more foreign movies channels than homelive
- Homelive have more english sports channels and more premium sports channels than kodi.
- Kodi is best used only when your subscription finishes or you want to watch free porn or you want to watch a particular tv series.
- Kodi tends to consume more data than homelive because it involves several processes and mini downloads before you can start watching a particular channel.
All that being said, the next question is “WHAT IS PROJECT KOD / XBMC?
From Wikipedia definition;
Kodi (formerly XBMC) is a free and open-source media player software developed by the XBMC Foundation, a non-profit technology consortium.Kodi is available for multiple operating systems and hardware platforms, with a software 10-foot user interface for use with televisions and remote controls. It allows users to play and view most videos, music, such as audio and video podcasts from the internet, and all common digital media files from local and network storage media.
It is a popular multi-platform alternative to Windows Media Center for HTPC (Home Theater PC) use.Kodi is highly customizable: a variety of skins can change its appearance, and various plug-ins allow users to access streaming media content via online services.
WHAT ARE KODI / XBMC ADD-ONS??
Kodi / Xbmc add-ons are packages that add features and functions not normally included with Kodi. Add-ons are developed by people on Team Kodi and third-parties. Kodi has a growing list of community driven add-ons for online content like YouTube, Hulu, Grooveshark, Pandora Radio, as well as skins (themes) and more available from a common official repository, while still enabling third-party developers to also host their own unofficial repositories for add-ons that any user can choose to add themselves if they like. However, most of the official kodi add-ons are useless. The unofficial add-ons is where you can get quality movies, free pornography, sports and so on. I shall be dropping some kodi addons that are useful then you can search for more yourself. However like i warned earlier if you download an addon that damage your decoder, please do not contact me. I will be able to help ancloud users at my discretion, but i can not help those using other android boxes simply because i am not connected to their manufacturers. So please beware while installing add-ons. If i were you, i will install on safe and tested add-ons. Special caution must be taking when you are downloading pornographic add-ons. If you need quality realtime porn, then you will have to buy Afun package and install it on your android box. Am coming to that later.

Veetle is a great Kodi plugin to have if you don’t know what to watch and want to kill some time. Veetle pulls live streams of nearly all types of content from around the world and presents it as list. Unfortunately it is not sorted or categorized.

6. Muzu.tv THE MUSIC VIDEO SITE
Great for watching music videos with a jukebox function which plays songs based on a set genre. Searching for your favorite songs has never been easier, making this one of the best XBMC addons for music lovers. Choose from a huge selection of music videos available at muzu.tv.

For all you retro gamers out there the Rom Collection Browser addon is for you. This piece of software opens up your rom collection and allows you to play games on your XBMC machine with little to no set up. The only extra set up this addon needs is a folder containing all of your roms and related emulators. With future versions of Kodi focusing on improving gaming, this addon could grow in demand.
8. FTV Guide
If you use US TV Now, Genesis, or the FTV addon then this FTV Guide addon is a must have.

You can customize what EPG data is pulled and presented to you. With this addon you won’t miss the TV guide that you had on your cable
FTV addon is like the UK and international version of US TV now addon but with more options.
