Requirements: -Kodi Eden (v11) or later -The relevant plugin installed on Kodi -YouTube plugin must be version 4.4.4 or later How to use: - "Play now" button sends the currently playing video of your active tab to Kodi. If there are videos currently in a queue, it would be cleared and the current video would be played. - "+Queue (X)" button puts the video of your current tab to the end of the playlist on Kodi. A number in parenthesis shows the number of items currently in the queue. - "+Favourite" button keeps the video of your current tab in your favourite list for easy access. - Drag and drop your favourites to rearrange them. - With the extension window open, you can use some of your keyboard keys to remotely control Kodi. These keys are: Arrow keys, Backspace, Enter, "I" and "C". - Right click on YouTube links to play or queue. Permissions: - Your data on all websites: Needed so that the extension could send JSON requests to any URL that you might put in the settings. - Your tabs and browsing activity: Used only for getting the URL of the current tab so that we could use it to obtain the video id for sending to Kodi. Setup: - On Kodi, go under System > Settings > Services > Webserver - Enable "Allow control of Kodi via HTTP, leave the port as default or set it to something else (if you know what you're doing). Write down the port number. - Username and password are optional - Right click on the 'Play to Kodi' icon and select 'Options' - Put in the IP address or hostname of your Kodi box and fill in the port number with the port number you wrote down earlier. Fill in the username and password if you entered one into Kodi. - Visit YouTube, watch some videos and click on the 'Play to Kodi' icon to play them on Kodi.

  • (2022-01-11) Nadim Barsoum: Great extension. One thing to note is that if you do restrict the extension's website access, you need to go into the Manage Extensions window and ADD your kodi system's ip address to the exceptions otherwise the extension won't be able to communicate with Kodi if you just use the default allow youtube.com option that pops by default on Chrome.
  • (2021-05-14) Christopher Youssef: Works well for YouTube. Needs to add more support for other websites... i.e. Bitchute, Rumble, Odessee, Banned.Video, Vimeo etc.
  • (2021-03-26) Tamás Béres: Soundcloud doesn't work since last CoreElec update :(

  • (2019-01-10) Fredy Casilla: yo tengo xmbc version 12 frodo en otra pc con xp . luego desde chrome no funciona a enviar video solo funciona los controles y fotos . gracias por tu extension
  • (2018-12-21) Айдамир Буткус: Add support for Elementum plugin!
  • (2018-11-25) Lynn Trisinscius: I want to love this. It casts fine, but only casts in a low resolution. I don't see the point in sending a 480p (possibly worse) image to a 4K TV. There doesn't seem to be any way to change the resolution either unfortunately.
  • (2018-11-18) Eduardo G.: Fácil, sencillo y rápido. Estéticamente es normal, le falta una mejor interfaz (un gran botón Play Now)
  • (2018-10-20) dr blais: doesn't link up anymore its a pain to have to set it up all the time
  • (2018-09-01) Задонатьте мужику на его кофе, это то что вы ищете :)
  • (2018-08-29) Big Chevy: Overall ? excellent. * Works great! * Nice playback and playlist features. * Simple and clean configuration dialog.
  • (2018-08-28) Von sehr gut zu total schlecht. Nur noch Youtube geht und das ist sinnfrei.
  • (2018-06-16) Andrei Savin: Всё супер! спасибо!
  • (2018-06-16) Shane Stenton: Even on a hard wired gigabit network, it plays extremely laggy slow, and then boots the stream after a few seconds anyway.
  • (2018-06-15) Kris Kozak: ok
  • (2018-06-09) Vyacheslav S: Отличное приложение, очень удобное управление!
  • (2018-06-05) Tip Sheikh: Works great if settings are correct; if it doesnt work for you, DO NOT FOLLOW ONLINE DIRECTIONS. *DO NOT*: use the IP address found in the Kodi system settings section. NOT CORRECT/ACCURATE. ***DO***: Use the IP found in the FIRESTICK SETTINGS tab, ie, exit kodi, go to the actual firestick settings>device>about>network... you will see a DIFFERENT IP address,which is the ACTUAL one, enter that, port 8080, and Play! Hope this helps anyone unable to connect!
