    Which is better and why? I will be using it on an Nvidia shield.

    Also, can I copy my Kodi setup over to SPMC, rather than setting it all up again? If so, any idea how?

    Thanks, I saw that but you can't add 3rd party plugins to MrMc apparently. I have downloaded SPMC and set it all up again with the plugins etc, as I can't find how to transfer it all over.....what a ball ache.

    SPMC seems a lot better than Kodi, streams better, apparently it has been built around the Shield, certain settings etc specifically for Android. Seems better so far.

    I know on my amazon box I use ABD link to back up my build and then transfer it to another box.I'm not sure if it works for all boxes but I should think it would work on your Nvidia shield.

    @formandvoid. Do you use SPMC? Im finding that some plugins work in Kodi but not SPMC, they are just not available to install in the same repo.

    No I'm using Kodi. I think SPMC was only used so it can run onolder boxes as it will run on android 4.4 but kodi needs android 5 or above.

    Ok, I think I will stick with SPMC for now, runs miles better on Shield. Apparently Kodi 18 has been adapted more for Android so I will switch back once it's fully released.

    I don't see the point of kodi anymore just use terrarium. No point trying to use it for free iptv as they just close down the links.
