by | Oct 26, 2020

This tutorial will guide you through the steps of installing an add-on called Bumblebee Kodi Addon on your Kodi media center. Bumblebee is a fork of Exodus which brings support for the NVIDIA Maxwell architecture to the popular Kodi media player.

A lot of you know me as the creator of Bumblebee, the open source addon for Kodi that enables media players to use a multiple GPU system to accelerate playback. I’ve gotten a lot of questions lately about whether or not Bumblebee can be used with Kodi. Unfortunately, as I discovered, there is no official Kodi Addon for Bumblebee, but there is a Bumblebee Addon for Kodi (on Github) that works perfectly. This is a great add on, and totally worth installing on your Kodi player.
