For those that want to try using legitimate source for watching movies online, here’s a list of Legal Kodi Movie Addons of some great sources. All these sources host content that is free, pubic domain or whose creators want them free and openly shared.
I know this isn’t a list of Hollywood blockbusters, but I think it’s a great source of some ‘alternative’ media that you may not find in some main stream addons.
- Vimeo – Vimeo seems second to YouTube when it comes to size and popularity, but it’s still a great video upload service for short film and independent filmmakers.Folks looking for something great to watch, Vimeo’s Staff Picks is full of gems that run the gamut from drama to documentary to science fiction and back again. You can find the Addon and how to install it here: http://kodi.wiki/view/Add-on:Vimeo
- Top Documentary Films – TDF, is another great documentary site—broken up by category, from war and global conflict and crime to health and environment, and so on. Like other documentary sites, they’re a bit more of an aggregator, and their content is pulled from YouTube, Vimeo, and other sources—but that also makes it a convenient one-stop shop for what you want to see. http://kodi.wiki/view/Add-on:Top_Documentary_Films
- Classic Cinema Online – Classic Cinema Online is ideal for those old, classic movie buffs who love the era of black and white films and artistically painted movie posters. Classics like Gregory Peck’s Moby Dick and the original Lone Ranger film are among some of the site’s highlights, but if you dive deeper you can find treasures like the 1952 Mutiny and the 1932 Secret of Dr. Kildare, among others.

- PopcornFlix – With thousands of free TV shows and movies, and names and titles you’ll probably recognize, PopcornFlix is owned and operated by Screen Media Ventures, an independent distributor of TV shows and media to the television market—which means they have access to and rights to tons of shows. Their distribution rights mean you’ll find full National Geographic series catalogs, so you can catch up on episodes of Wild Justice or Alaska State Troopers, or sit back and watch Inspector Gadget or Rugrats Gone Wild.

- Crackle – Owned by Sony (which is why there’s so much to watch), Crackle is often overlooked when people discuss free streaming media on the web, but it’s present on a number of mobile devices and set-top boxes. In Kodi, the Addon to look for is Crackler. You can browse the full library of TV shows and movies, including things like Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee and Sports Jeopardy!, or TV series’ like Firefly and Seinfeld.That’s part of the beauty of Crackle – it’s all free—as long as you’re willing to watch commercials and ads occasionally.

- YouTube – This needs no introduction but what you may not know is YouTube is home to a ton of free, and freely-published movies and TV shows, many of which are YouTube originals, and others that are available via Creative Commons or shared in the public domain. Many YouTube originals are vanishing behind the paid curtain of YouTube Red, but there are still plenty to be found, and lots of entertaining shows and movies—and channels to subscribe to. For example, the Paramount Vault channel is packed with free movies, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Grab the Addon http://kodi.wiki/view/Add-on:YouTube
- The Internet Archive – The Archive is a repository for all sorts of things, and while you probably know it for the ever-useful Wayback Machine, it’s also great for public domain films, independent media, TV broadcasts and newsreels, and other media that you’re free to use and remix on your own as well as sit back and enjoy for yourself.There are plenty of movies, organized by category like sci-fi, horror, or film noir, but also art films, educational videos and films, special collections that were made available to the Internet Archive for posterity, documentaries, and even stock footage. It’s not the most easily browse-able, or organized for non-computer screens, and good luck getting that video on a bigger screen unless you download it first, but it’s certainly a treasure trove.
