The Kodi Player is the entertainment system badly off with almost unlimited customization and expansion options. For one or the other, unknown sources may already be familiar. Some repositories, for example, are inserted externally into Kodi. For this we need to activate the unknown sources.
What exactly do unknown sources do?
In Kodi, an unknown source is defined as a file from which the origin cannot be determined. This means that the file is not a certified publisher. Since Kodi is open source software anyone can program modifications for it and make them available for download. Unknown sources do not automatically mean harmful files or viruses. Even many of the most popular repositories can be added to Kodi externally.
How do I activate unknown sources?
- We are in the main menu of our Kodi Player and click “Settings” (grey gear wheel)
- Select “System” here
- Go to the “Add-ons” tab in the list and click on the “button for unknown sources“.
- We get a message that we confirm with “Yes“.
- Now we have already activated our unknown sources and we can install our desired addon or repository!
