Placenta is a popular addon for Kodi, it’s based on Covenant so it feels very familiar to use. Placenta has many new features including a categories for Kids, Fitness, Music and it also supports library integration,, premium accounts and more.


Placenta has been discontinued. These are our favorite add-ons for December 2018:
Exodus Redux:  New add-on based on Exodus, it uses Lambda Scrapers to get sources from file hosting websites.
Yoda: Based on Exodus, scrapes sources from file hosting websites.
Seren: New add-on written from scratch with very innovative features like playing next episodes automatically, requires Debrid and Trakt accounts.
Elementum: High quality videos using Torrents.
Masterani Redux: Subtitled and dubbed anime.
Plexus: Live sports using AceStream or SopCast.


In this guide we are going to install Placenta on Kodi using the Magicality repo. Let’s begin.

Enabling Unknown sources will allow installation of 3rd party addons that are not available in the official Kodi repository, we also recommend enabling Show notifications since most addons use them to display important information.
