Recently I discovered running XBMC KODI using 1channel addon I could watch movies and TV shows wirelessly to my smart TV through the WiFi and by turning on a few settings inside KODI.
Let me show you what I mean.
First you'll need any device running the latest version of KODI. This can be done from any computer ie Mac or PC and any tablet or phone as well ie Android or iOS. Download KODI for your platform here: http://kodi.tv/download
Setup and use is the same across all platforms running latest version of KODI.
Open KODI and scroll to the right and open SYSTEM Settings
Adjust settings level to expert
Then make sure each setting here is check on as shown in the next screenshots below.
Web Server (PCs have to edit and add 80 more so it reads as shown here port 8080
SMB Client stays as is
Now install 1channel and to do this, highlight SYSTEM and under in the sub menu you'll see file manager. Open file manager and add source.
Add source add the URL as shown by clicking None and typing in the url http://fusion.tvaddons.ag/
Then give it a name *fusion and click done
Now click ok to finish
Click back to home page and open system and locate ADDONS and open ADDONS
OPEN INSTALL FROM ZIP AND HERE IS WHERE FUSION IS LOCATED
Once you select it, the repo will add itself to get Addons
Open get Addons and select tknorris repo
Select video Addons
Install but wait to launch
Once it's installed open configure, under video playback, change the source selection method to directory and select ok. THIS STEP IS VERY IMPORTANT AND MUST BE SET TO "directory" for the play using options.
Now you can launch and open 1channel
For example I will open movies folder
Select for example featured
any other preferred search location.
Select a movie or tv show
For example I select Chappie
File link locations appear. This is where you select specific link names that will work with your smart tv
For example I have my samsung smart tv and I've setup a WiFi connection or Ethernet works too but the important thing to remember is what ever internet I use to connect my Smart TV my other device like my iPad or laptop needs to be on same network either directly connected via Ethernet or preferably WiFi. Personally both my iPad and TV are on the same WiFi network.
Make sure TV is on and has a connection.
I need to open sub menu options for the file link but I also must choose specific file links that have the word vid in it such as vidzi,realvid, vidbull, etc. I know this seems like wtf I know but from what I've tested they all work if they have a vid somewhere in the name LOL wtf
Another example vidbull
Once you find one like this one you need to open sub menu for the file source. This is only possible if you followed the steps earlier under configure and adjusted the "Source Selection Method" to "Directory"
Anyways.... To open this option and choose "play using" for computers use your mouse or touch pad and right click vidbull. Or using a keyboard, highlight file source ie vidbull and press the C key on the keyboard. Any tablet or cell touch screen device select the source by long pressing vidbull for more than a second and let go then the play using sub menu will appear.
Select play using
Now as long as everything is synced as it should via WiFi UPnP
Select your device tv as shown
As long as the link is good your tv should recognize it and pick it up.
After a few seconds it should load on your tv as shown
Use your remote to play, pause and stop.
Any computer, phone or tablet running KODI and using 1channel addon it is now extremely easy to watch any tv show or movie wirelessly and effortlessly on your smart TV.

We ask that you understand you are not buying the applications but are donating to app and code writers students who use any donations to further development of possible future ideas or new ventures in code creation and official releases.
