Kodi is highly customizable thanks to its open-source nature, and the Kodi add-on community frequently releases modified versions of the app called Kodi builds. Whether you need a change in the user interface or quick access to your favorite content, these builds can serve your purpose without the hassle of installing a dozen repositories.
Once Kodi is installed, it takes a lot of time and effort to customize. Finding particular skins, add-ons, and settings that suit your purpose can even be exhausting for some. However, Kodi builds offer a one-stop-shop for all these add-ons and skins, making it easy to download and stream content quickly.
Now that the latest Kodi Leia version has been stabilized, almost all builds that worked on the previously Krypton 17.6 now support 18.3 version too. A number of builds that only support Leia version have also been released, making ground relatively thin for the older version. Below, we have listed the five best Kodi builds that offer buffer-less streaming. Some work on Leia 18.3, some on 17.6, and some work on both.
If you are a long-term Kodi user, then you must have heard about this one. No Limits Magic has been around as a popular Kodi build until it got afflicted with faulty add-ons. But lucky for you, it has been brought back to life with the latest update that features a sleek user interface and a wide range of working Kodi add-ons.
Whether you’re a casual or frequent streamer, No Limit Magic build has tons of content options to keep you indulged, including movies, TV shows, sports, and more. Some add-ons worth mentioning would be AdultHideout, Bennu, Castaway, cCloud TV, Champion Sports, Covenant, DC Sports, GoodFellas 2.0, and VideoDevil, among others. It works with both Kodi Krypton 17.6 and Leia 18.2-3 versions.
Titanium is relatively new to the scene but has garnered great reviews from both long-term and new Kodi users. It comes equipped with a versatile range of add-ons from different categories like Live Sports, Movies, YouTube, and Live TV for major UK and US cable TV channels.
Titanium is home to some of the most popular add-ons like Gaia, Yoda, 13Clowns, Supremacy, Stream Hub, Deceit, and Incursio, to mention a few. Titanium also allows easy customization. It uses the famous Xonfluence skin, but you can choose from tons of other options. It is available for both Kodi Krypton and Leia versions.
Some Kodi builds for 2021 seem to be inflating the app’s functionality with unnecessary add-ons scattered into countless categories. Misfit Mods Lite is a simple to use build that requires minimum space and thus, works perfectly on devices like Amazon Fire Stick.
One of the oldest players in the Kodi build community, it offers a variety of video streaming add-ons for movies, TV shows, and live events. All of these add-ons are placed right at the main menu, which leads to a fluid streaming experience. It is available for Kodi Leis only and features many popular add-ons like Project M, Crackle, ESPN 3, The Pyramid, SportsDevil, YouTube, Monster Munch, and more.
If you’re using Kodi 18 on a low RAM and processing power device such as the Firestick, then Streamline Kodi build is a no-brainer. Being as light as 220 MB in size, it is a lightweight yet powerful Kodi build that offers some of the best add-ons for your streaming needs.
The interface is quite smooth and lets you choose from plenty of sources to stream video content, which is often available in 1080p high-definition quality. Boasting some of the most popular Kodi add-ons like Magic Dragon, Exodus Redux, YouTube, and At The Flix, Streamline has all the right features to transform Kodi into a complete media streaming hub despite its small size.
Xanax is a brainchild of the same Kodi developers that gave us the highly popular Durex build. Even though Durex has been discontinued, Xanax is carrying the legacy forward and making its mark way up in the list of the best Kodi builds in 2021. Xanax is quite similar to Durex in terms of UI, UX, and even size.
Users who are still looking for a Durex alternative may resort to Xanax. By no means it is a clone, but an advanced version with much better functionality. Xanax is available for Kodi Leia and Krypton and hosts a solid catalog of Kodi add-ones like Yoda and Maverick TV.
