There’s a lot of fantastic media content on Reddit, although finding it isn’t always easy. The new Reddit Browser for Kodi scrapes subreddits for video, live streams, audio, images and discussions.
The add-on has been in development for almost a year, and while it’s still very much a work in progress, it’s easy enough to use.
Unofficial Kodi add-on provider TVAddons has put together a quick start guide, and a video to show you how to install the browser in the popular home theater software.
