SPMC Android Kodi Fork Download

The SPMC Android app is a fork of Kodi that is specialized for the Android operating system. Get the info and details on how to download SPMC by reading on.

June 21st: For those of you running Android 4.4 and have seen a decline in links in multi-source add-ons such as Exodus, the latest version of SPMC (version 16.6.81) has the updated version of python needed to view streams from SSL websites, which don’t appear if you don’t have the updated python.


SPMC is an Android fork of Kodi that is developed and maintained by koying, the former Android programmer for the Kodi foundation. The SPMC Android program optimizes and fixes bugs that have popped up with Kodi in some Android operating systems such as the nVidia Shield, FireTV and amlogic devices.

SPMC maintains a separate app ID from Kodi, so it can be installed side-by-side on your Android device so that you can see for yourself if its right for you.

In general, Android users should first try the official version of Kodi and then attempt the SPMC Android software if they run into playback issues or bugs.

One other nice feature of SPMC is that it supports Android voice commands support.

  2. I’ve been using spmc for a while now and I am very happy with it. I installed ipvanish following the European ruling only to find that spmc froze. No buttons would work. I tried opening kodi which I had left on my system and that worked fine. I am awaiting a response from ipvanish but if previous responses are anything to go by I won’t be holding my breath. Any suggestions please?
