10 BEST DEVICES for XBMC KODI 

Official Android TV Player Hardware Platforms

The devices listed are Android hardware devices that have the approval of XBMC KODI as official and compatible hardware platforms for running XBMC KODI and various add-ons. Do not consider any other devices you may find online. These are guaranteed to work properly with XBMC KODI.

Amazon Fire TV is an Android-based (Fire OS) set-top-box that contains a very powerful ARM processor (that can even handle some of the more heavy XBMC skins). Fire TV stands above some of the other Android-based offerings due to Amazon's strong product support and because it contains more remote friendly versions of Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and other video service clients, making it a good pairing with XBMC/Kodi. Device Specifications




Amazon Fire TV Stick is a newly announced low cost Android-based (Fire OS) set-top box in a HDMI-stick format. Amazon Fire TV Stick contains a little less powerful ARM processor but technically provides all the same features as its big brother, Amazon Fire TV.
Both Amazon Fire TV Stick and the original Amazon Fire TV stands above some of the other Android-based offerings due to Amazon's strong product support and because it contains more remote friendly versions of Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and other video service clients, all this should make it a good pairing with XBMC/Kodi. Device Specifications

Nexus Player is an x86-64 (64-bit Intel Atom CPU) based Android digital media player co-developed by Google and Asus. Running the Android 5.0 "Lollipop" operating system, this Nexus Player was the first device to employ Google's Android TV platform. Device Specifications

MK808B Plus (not to be confused with the very different MK808 or MK808B), is a small ARM-based Android "stick" hardware that uses an Amlogic S805 SoC chipset. MK808B Plus is also able to run XBMC/Kodi on Linux using unofficial third-party firmware images of example OpenELEC.
While the integrated WiFi support in it is not great, but for about $35 USD, the MK808B Plus is a fairly decent 1080p set-top box device for cheap that can decode all the most popularly used video codecs today, including HEVC (H.265). Device Specifications

Nvidia SHIELD Console is an upcoming next-generation Android-based set-top box and game console that will contains a very powerful ARM processor, (and should be able to handle the most heavy of XBMC/Kodi skins). It will be one of the first Android-based which features high-fidelity audio support, HDMI 2.0 output, and is built to handle Ultra HD digital media playback and output in 4K resolution at 60 Hz, including 60 frames per second decoding of the more recent HEVC (H.265) and VP9 video codecs.
Running the Android TV operating system (based on Android 5.0 "Lollipop") on a Tegra X1 SoC (System on Chip), the Nvidia SHIELD Console will stand above most of the other high-end Android-based hardware offerings not only because of its graphics and audio capabilities, but also because due to Nvidia's strong product support. It will come with remote friendly versions of Netflix, Hulu, Google Play Movies, YouTube and other video service clients, with many supporting videos in 4K (Ultra HD) resolution.

Adding to that its comes with Nvidia's gaming ecosystem capable of running all graphically intensive AAA ("triple A") games for Android in 1080p at 60fps, as well as supporting Nvidia's low-latency GameStream technologies for GeForce-equipped PC game streaming, and Nvidia's GRID cloud game-streaming service..

OUYA is an Android-based game console and set-top-box that contains a relatively powerful ARM processor that can handle most heavy XBMC skins, in addition to outputting video in Full HD (1080p).

Two unofficial versions are also available; "XBMC for Ouya" (an unofficial build submitted to the Ouya Store by Ouya themselves (which lacks DTS and AC3 audio decoding support due to licensing issues) and "SPMC" (a fork of XBMC released by XBMC developer Koying that have Ouya support but must be sideloaded). Device Specifications
