I went to Kodi forum, posted question about issues getting 3rd party ADD-ONS no loading and was booted out for this. Maybe you can help. I’m using Kodi 17.6 on Chromebook and want to setup MXPlayer as default but first I need access to Downloader program/app however can’t figure out how to get it onto Chromebook. Fire TV Stick, no problem but not so on Chromebook. Seems Chromebooks are hybrid between Android and Windows meaning neither work well, they don’t play well with each other especially when need to say, move downloaded APK or ZIP files to where Kodi can see them. Any advise.
