Reddit on Xbmc equals amazing!

Reddit videos add-on for xbmc

   When I first came across it didn't take me very long to fall in love with the amazing community and amount of quality content. The idea of sharing great content with the world and being part of the discussion was huge for me.Whenever I need a good laugh or want to catch up on the newest world news I am sucked right back to Reddit. So when I discovered there was an Reddit add-on for Xbmc I was even more obsessed with the greatness of Xbmc and their open source Media Center. Now I can watch Reddit Videos while relaxing on my sofa with a cold beer!

  Reddit add-on for Xbmc is Called Reddit Videos and can be installed from the the Super Repo Repository. Download Super Repo here or add this source to Xbmc  ""

 Once you have added Super Repo to Xbmc, go to "get add-ons",  "Super Repo Video", and then "video add-ons". Then look for Reddit videos and install. Make sure to add your Reddit email and password in the add-on settings!

  Reddit Videos is not anywhere near a top Xbmc plugin for the average user, but if you like Reddit then I recommend  trying this add-on out. Here is what you can expect on Reddit Videos for Xbmc:

Feature Points is an app for the IOS or Android platform that lets the user accumulate points by trying out free apps. When the user reaches enough points he or she can then exchange those points for prizes. Prizes consist of paid apps, Amazon gift cards, iTunes gift cards, Pay Pal gift cards and more.

Listen to Spotify in Canada

Listen to spotify in canada artwork    Spotify is a growing online radio service that was first launched in 2008. With already an astounding 20 million users, why not give this Pandora like radio service a try!

   Unfortunately just like every other great online service, Spotify is Restricted in Canada. So your out of luck right? No, your not!! Spotify just like Pandora radio, is very simple to access in Canada.

  So I am going to show you the best way to listen to Spotify in Canada for Free on the PC!! With a free add-on for Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox called Hola. There will be no paid proxy servies needed for this method of listening to Spotify in Canada!

  The First method of listening to Spotify in Canada will be demonstrated with the Spotify Web player version. ( Not the PC downloaded App). I will talk about the PC application after.

Listen to Spotify in Canada in Five Steps: 


Download the free add-on Here

 Step 1

 First you will need to download Hola, a free add-on for Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox. Either one works well so its up to you which browser you like better. I am going to use Hola with Chrome.

Step 2

  Then you will be prompted to make a free account or sign in with Google Plus or Facebook. Don't worry its Free!

hola in Chrome

Step 3

  Once your logged in click on Spotify like shown above. Then click on unblocking rule at the top of the page as shown below. Then Click Access

Hola in chrome

 Step 4

    Once you have clicked Access you will be brought to the Spotify Homepage.

  Now you might think that you should click download, but Do Not. Your going to wanna click on Log in and then Sign up at the top right corner of the page.
Spotify home page

  Make sure to Not log in with Facebook because Facebook gives out your location. 

Step 5 

  Once your successfully signed up you will be logged in and brought to your profile page. That is a good sign that everything has went well.

  Next you will need to navigate to the Spotify Web Player instead of downloading the PC application version. (We will talk about the PC app later). To access the web player version of Spotify you can search for it on Google or click here

Spoitfy web app login

     When you arrive to  just click "Already have an account? Log in here."  Then log in with your username and password. Now you can Listen to Spotify in Canada!

  Having trouble getting Spotify working? Try watching the Video

Listen to Spotify with the PC Application:

 Now the only reason I have waited until the end of this post to talk about the PC app is because its a little more Tricky.

The downloaded PC version of Spotify will only work for 14 days when using it in Canada. Unless you have a proxy running, after 14 days you will be unable to listen to Spotify in Canada. This is what Spotify says:
"If you’re hitting the road, you’ll want your tunes by your side.
Spotify Free users travelling abroad can log in for up to 14 days. After this you’ll need to log in from your registered country to keep listening.
Going away longer? You might consider a Spotify subscription so you can have both ad-free listening and no travel limits.
With Spotify Premium you can also listen to your playlists offline. Just be sure to log in online at least once every 30 days.
Read more about how to travel with Spotify in our Travel Guide."

  So the only way you can get around this is by logging into your Spotify account with Hola every couple weeks otherwise the only way would be to buy a subscription.

 So this concludes my walk-through on How to Listen to Spotify in Canada. I hope this method has worked for you. If you have any questions or better ways of listening to Spotify in Canada please let us know in the comments. Cheers!!

Top 5 Xbmc Add-ons in 2014

top 5 addons for xbmc

  Xbmc is becoming more and more popular these days especially  with its ability to install 100's of add-ons to watch Movies and TV shows for free. So I thought I would make a list of the top 5 Xbmc add-ons I use in 2014.

  I have also included the URL http source for all add-ons. If you don't know how to add http source to Xbmc Watch the video below. If you are new to Xbmc I would also advise you to read this article " how to setup your Xbmc media center " by justin pot.

How to install add-ons from URL:




1. Navi-X    Navi-x add-on for Xbmc is first on my list because it has an enormous amount of content scraped from all over the web! Not only does Navi-x have a massive collection of movies and TV shows it also has a vast majority of live streaming TV channels from all over the world! Navi-x is very reliable and when I can't find something I wanna watch I always revert to this unique add-on. 

(Update 4/14/2014 ) - Navi-x is currently undergoing server upgrades and may not be working for some. Navi-x Team estimates completion in mid April 2014.

2. Mashup  Mashup add-on for Xbmc is second on my list because like Navi-x not only does it have a lot of content, its very neatly organized. Some categories it has that I like is HD movies, 3D movies, Documentaries, Live streams, Sports and Kids zone! Definitely a must have add-on for Xbmc in 2014!

3. 1Channel  1Channel add-on for Xbmc is Third because for me its an reliable source for new TV shows and Movies that are updated very quickly everyday. 1Channel add-on has been around for a long time and it categorizes Movies and TV shows. As of 03/07/2014 1Channel add-on is based on Primewire. Unfortunately 1Channel is blocked in the U.K..

4. Icefilms  Icefilms add-on for Xbmc is 4 fourth on my list for only one reason. Its the same as 1Channel except for it supplies the option for HD video source on movies and TV shows and who doesn't like an HD video over an SD video? Icefilms also has been around a long time.

5. Veetle    Veetle add-on for Xbmc is last on my list but only because I don't use it is often as other add-ons. Still if your tired or can't think of something good to watch Veetle is great because its plays all kinds of media on auto pilot just like a TV channel Would. Its gets all of its streaming sources from Definitely a good add-on to have.

6. iStream iStream add-on for Xbmc Can not be forgotten in 2014! iStream is an incredible add-on that changes the way you use Xbmc forever. this unique add-on is what we have always wanted in Xbmc. iStream has thousands of sources where it scrapes from and integrates all metadata. iStream receives movies and TV show lists from major websites like IMDB, makes your Xbmc look Slick and stylish and provides a easy navigation to what you wanna watch. I highly recommend trying out this add-on.
