Awesome news for XBMC / Kodi users that have a GDrive…..there is a add-on that you can use to view all your media content!
With the more ‘Cloud’ drives becoming available, it seems more are being ported over to the XBMC / Kodi community for us to us (we like). Each and everyone of us has at least one cloud storage drive, so seeing Google Drive on XBMC / Kodi is awesome.
The add-on [GDrive] allows the user to play, listen and view any content on the account. As we know, Kodi supports many playback files, so your pretty certain to get everything on your drive to playback.
We know users that have their entire movie collection on their Google Drive and they love this add-on. So we thought we would check it out, and it works pretty good.
Before you start, we need the GDrive download repo, you can download it HERE
Install on your device in the normal fashion, either via USB drive or drag & drop.
You may think it’s a bit of a short installation, but this add-on is a simple install and use, no need to go into any repo and enable.
Once you’ve done the above install, head over to Add-on Central or where ever your video add-ons are stored.
GDrive will be waiting for you. As you can see, it’s still in testing and not final version has been released to date as of yet. Don’t let this worry you, it all works awesomely!
All you need to do now is configure the settings to add your credentials.
You can do this by following this path on your device: Settings/Add-ons/Enable Add-ons … you screen should now look like this…
Now click ‘c’ on your keyboard and the settings will popup. Simply add you credentials, press ‘OK’ and head back to the Add-on Central where you just come from.
You can now use your GDrive on Kodi 🙂
