Today we are going to configure Kodi Media Center to stream movies and TV shows on-demand using the popular addon Genesis. Unlike other addons, Genesis will get its sources from several popular streaming websites, we can say that is kind of an addon of addons.

IMPORTANT: Genesis is no longer being developed. Let us recommend some alternatives:

  • Specto, Genesis fork with the same features but under new management.
  • Exodus, new addon from the creator of Genesis, supports trakt integration.
  • SALTS (Stream all the sources) popular addon with lots of sources, supports library integration trough trakt.
  • Quasar, video streaming using p2p, supports library integration and also trakt.
