Etc need updating gentoo
There’s a substantial range of streaming tools available for Linux.
Each varies in specialty, from server capabilities to local playback, and everything in between.
The add-ons, however, position Kodi as a must-have for streaming with an abundance of third-party apps.
Kodi and Plex have a symbiotic relationship, and there’s even the Ple XBMC add-on that helps Kodi to stream content from a Plex server.
While it can very easily stream, and takes only a few minutes to set up, I usually designate VLC as my standalone file player.
With a few clicks, it’s easy to install add-ons for the likes of Crunchyroll, Funimation, ABC Family, and loads of other sources.
While it’s entirely possible to provide your own content, when it comes to streaming, Kodi wins at accessing third-party streams.
It’s available on a smattering of platforms, including Windows, OS X, Android, Raspberry Pi devices, and (you guessed it) Linux. It’s available directly from the website and in some cases it’s in the software center.
As a first step, check the software center and if Kodi is available there, that’s probably the easiest install. The main draw of Kodi is its extreme functionality and customization.
