Installing SPMC on Firestick is a very simple process. It takes less than five minutes to do, and it will give you access to all of your favorite streaming services. This article will walk you step-by-step through installing SPMC on your Firestick so that you can watch any movie or TV show in HD quality.
What Is SPMC?
SPMC is a Kodi addon that brings the best open-source home theater to Kodi.
It is designed and configured for Fire TV and works well on Android boxes in general, with a special emphasis on NVidia Shield TV, which we consider the best android box available today. SPMC uses hardware decoding when possible, which makes it work great on Fire TV and Shield TV.
SPMC is a fork of Kodi, an award-winning free and open-source (GPL) software media player and entertainment hub for digital media. SPMC does everything Kodi does, but it also has some extra features:
- Sideloading: SPMC can be installed on any Fire TV device, including Fire TV Stick and all generations of Fire TV Edition television. It is not available for use on other Android boxes.
- SPMC can be installed directly to internal storage or an attached USB drive (not recommended). SPMC also includes the option to install Kodi as a system application if you are using OSMC or LibreELEC on a supported device.
- UHD and HDR: SPMC supports playback of UHD (Ultra High Definition) video at up to 60 frames per second, as well as HDR (High Dynamic Range) content.
- HD Audio passthrough: SPMC can bitstream HD audio formats such as Dolby Atmos and DTS:X to an AV receiver or soundbar.
- Kodi addons: SPMC includes all of the same Kodi addons available in the official Kodi repository. You can also install additional addons from other sources, such as SuperRepo or TVAddons.
- Touch support: SPMC includes basic touch support for devices with a touchscreen. This includes the ability to swipe left and right to navigate menus and tap on items to select them.
- Settings: SPMC has all the same settings as Kodi, plus a few additional options specific to SPMC. These include an option to use hardware decoding (if available) and disable the on-screen keyboard.
- Debugging: SPMC includes a built-in debugging console that you can use to help troubleshoot problems with Kodi addons. This console is not enabled by default but can be enabled in the settings menu.
How To Install SMPC On Firestick
Though SPMC is still not available through the Fire Stick app store, it’s simple to set up. First and foremost, you must allow the Fire Stick to install programs from unknown sources.
Go to the Home screen to do so. Open the Settings tab by scrolling down the top row. Select Device, then Developer Options from the menu. Select Apps from Unknown Sources from the menu. “ON” should now appear beneath the text. If it still doesn’t work, try clicking it again.
Now say “Downloader” while holding down the voice search button on the remote. AFTVNews should take you to the Downloader app. You can manually search for it on the app store if you want.
Next, launch the addon after you’ve installed it. There is a box in the center of the screen where you can type in a URL. Enter the address, then press the Go button.
After you’ve downloaded the file, you’ll be able to view the rights that SPMC requires. Then, click the Install option at the bottom of the page and then open the app.
