The Kodi media center gives the user the option to “add to favorites” for any item (this can be a TV Series, or a particular season, or a particular movie, or even a folder).
The Option to ‘Add to Favorites’ is always there. Just highlight a specific show or item of your choice, and then click the letter “C” on your keyboard. If you dont have a keyboard, you click the MENU button on your remote (usually a button with 3 horizontal lines ontop of each other), which will provide the same functionality.
You will then get a new pop up (mini menu) on screen with a few options to choose from.
One of the options will be called “Add to favorites” , and in some cases, there may also be another option for “Add to Addon favorites” or “Add to Library”. (I will explain the differences shortly).
The option you want to choose is “Add to favorites” – this is the main Kodi favourites which is accessible from the Kodi main screen.
Depending on which skin/theme you are using with Kodi, the favourites button can be in various locations from the Kodi home screen. For example, with the default Kodi theme, you can access your favorites via the yellow star on the bottom left of the home screen.
However, if you are using the supermax kodi theme, there is a dedicated menu on the homescreen which is called “Favorites”, just click on that and it will display all your favorited items.
If you want to remove a favorite, it is the same procedure as adding a favorite, except instead of getting the option for “add to favorites”, you will get the option “remove from favorites”.
Note: some addons have inbuilt favorites, so sometimes the favorites wont appear in the Kodi homescreen favorites, rather they will appear inside of that addon. For example, if you chose the option ‘add to addon favorites’ (instead of ‘add to favorites’) your favourited item will be inside a folder inside that particular addon.
For example, if you are using the “iSTREAM” addon, and you added a show to favorites or library, that show will be in a folder called “mySTREAM” within the “iSTREAM” app.
I hope that makes sense – 🙂
