SPMC App Is A Kodi Fork, And A Very Capable Media Center

Back in the day, I used to rent VHS cassettes in order to watch movies. Going to the movies and renting tapes was basically the only way you can enjoy such content, in addition to regular TV channels, of course. Well, things are much, much different these days, we have tons of internet providers who offer great content like Netflix, Hulu, and then there’s cable etc. Well, truth be told, it all depends on where you live, in some areas internet providers actually offer their very own solutions for TV content.

That being said, there’s a free streaming service many of you probably already heard of, and it’s called Kodi. This service actually allows you to stream video and audio content on your computer, smartphone, tablet and / or smart TV. All you need to do is go through the Kodi setup process in order to get all the right sources in there, and you’re good to go. We’ve talked about Kodi before, and it seems like a rather interesting Kodi fork has been released in the Google Play Store. This app is called ‘SPMC’, and it has been developed by a former Kodi Android maintainer, Koying. Now, the SPMC (short for Semper Media Center) actually looks a lot like Kodi, and it is designed to be mobile friendly, well, at least to some extent. Even though this app does feel a bit more usable on a smartphone than regular Kodi app, it’s still not exactly mobile friendly. Either way, the SPMC actually received quite positive reviews in the Google Play Store, so people seem to like it. One thing to keep in mind here is the fact that the latest version does not support devices which are fueled by Rockchip processors.

So, if you’re not satisfied with Kodi, and would like to try out something almost identical in terms of looks, SPMC is definitely an app for you. The developer did not share all that much info in the Google Play Store, but if you visit SPMC’s official website, you’ll be able to get far more information. If you’re interested, click on the Google Play banner down below in order to download this app, it’s completely free to use, there are no in-app purchases available here.
