Kodi is a popular media server (formerly known as XBMC). Kodi allows you to organize media files, be it best Movies, TV Shows, your favorite Videos Songs, that awesome Music, or photos for easy playing on your TV or Kodi client via local network or over the internet.

With Kodi, you can also stream videos from Netflix, YouTube, Hulu, Prime Video, e.t.c. by installing them as add-ons. Setting up Kodi Media server is a simple process that’s fit for the novice, but a complicated setup can also be done by experts.

Install Kodi Media Server on Fedora 35/34/33/32/31

On some Linux distributions such as Ubuntu, Kodi can be installed from the official OS repository. In Fedora, we’ll use the RPM Fusion repository.

Step 1: Add RPM Fusion repository to Fedora

You’ll need to add the RPM Fusion repository to your Fedora system. This is achieved by running the command below in your terminal.

sudo dnf install -y  https://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm
sudo dnf install -y https://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm

Step 2: Install Kodi Media Server on Fedora

Once the repository is added, proceed to install on your Fedora system.

sudo dnf -y install kodi

The latest available version of Kodi will be installed.
