Difference between Kodi Skins and Kodi Builds

Kodi is a free and open source media player which was launched back in 2012 by XMBC foundation which is a non-profit organisation. Since then Kodi has gained a lot of popularity as a media player. In this post, we will be discussing about some of the best Kodi Skins. But first, lets briefly discuss about kodi.

Kodi is a powerful, free and opensource media player which works very well with almost all the devices. It allows you to play your favourite movies, music, TV shows, sports and lot more.

Many people might confuse with the different terminologies used as “Skins” and “Builds”. Lets talk about them.

Kodi Skin – A Kodi skin is a piece of software which makes your Kodi looks cool. You can customize your menus, icons, images etc.

Kodi Build – Kodi Builds are pre-configured files which are created by an individual or by some community. Installing a kodi build is more likely to have everything at one place like kodi add-ons, kodi skins, other settings, and much more.
