YouTube offers a never-ending supply of video content, making it a must-have for your media center. And if you use Kodi then you’re in luck, as there’s an official YouTube add-on available.

The official YouTube Kodi add-on lets you watch YouTube videos and manage your subscriptions. Here’s how to watch YouTube on Kodi using the official add-on.

Installing the YouTube add-on for Kodi is very easy as it is hosted in the official Kodi repository. This means that you know the add-on is legal and that the Kodi development team has agreed that it’s safe to use.
