How to Set Up Trakt on Kodi

Trakt is a service that keeps track of the movies and TV shows you watch. Every title you watch is stored in your account history, and you can find new content based on your watching activities. If you have multiple devices using the same account, this information is synced across all of them. Another useful feature of Trakt is the ability to view public playlists of other users, and this way find additional content that matches your interests.

You can use Kodi to authorize and sync your Trakt account. Most of the popular Kodi add-ons support Trakt and provide perfect integration between the two platforms.

How to Watch Movies on Full Screen with Kodi

The way a movie appears on a screen is based on its aspect ratio. The aspect ratio is the proportion between the width and height of the display. If the aspect ratio of the screen and the movie are not the same, the movie will fill only part of the screen. In this case, you will see black bars on top and bottom and occasionally on the sides of the screen.

Trying to watch movies on full screen may be a frustrating task with many available media players. However, with Kodi, you can watch a movie on full screen by changing its aspect ratio. This way the movie will have the same aspect ratio as your screen. Every movie fan will love this feature.

How to Paste Text to Kodi on Android

Many times you need to enter text to Kodi like URLs for sources or API keys for various services. Typing this long text is an exhausting task and it is also prone to errors, one wrong character and nothing works. This is the reason we use copy and paste, but it isn’t easy to do it on Kodi. In the case of Windows, we can use Ctrl + v and Ctrl + c that work also for Kodi, but for Android, this won’t work. Moreover, the regular way to copy and paste on Android won’t work as Kodi uses its proprietary keyboard. However, there is a solution also for Android by using the remote app for Kodi, and this will make your life much easier.

How to Set Up Kodi Remote on Android and iOS Devices

The most common way to control your Kodi is to use physical remote control. However, there is another way to control it using your mobile phone, which can be an Android or iOS device.
For the second option, you first need to configure Kodi accordingly. Then you need to install and configure an app on your mobile. After doing so, you will be able to control Kodi with an app that is optimized for it. Your mobile device and Kodi must be connected to the same local network for this to work.
Using an app instead of physical remote control has several advantages. The app is easier to work with and you can copy and paste long text like URLs of repositories, URLs of M3U playlists and API keys. Also, it is handy if you have lost your remote.
