LibreELEC runs Kodi, an award-winning free and open source (GPL) software media player and entertainment hub for digital media. For more info see The base system has been designed and built from the ground up to be as efficient as possible – consuming only tiny disk and memory footprints, and providing cutting edge hardware support to deliver a set-top box experience.

LibreELEC supports many of the popular HTPC hardware solutions, from Raspberry Pi 1/2/3 to Intel based GPUs from Nvidia, AMD and Intel.

“It’s complicated” to explain why LibreELEC exists, and attempting to do so in public would be a negative exercise and likely cause offense, so we won’t. We prefer to look forwards to our future not backwards at OpenELEC, and the About page above sets out the general manifesto of things the project team want LibreELEC to be or become. We will leave you to read and draw your own conclusions.

The LibreELEC team (already 30 people and growing) are now heads-down on completing the rebranding process and organising the infrastructure needed for our first release: LibreELEC 7.0 (Jarvis).

Our activities can be (mostly) followed by looking at commits to our GitHub repo and reading further news posts as they appear on this website.

Thanks for your support! :-)
