How to install BMC on Kodi and Firestick
The Badazz-Media-Center, more famously known as BMC, is a basis for some sophisticated current Kodi addons and models. The BMC model menu accentuates a fair variety of models for an extent of Kodi-aided platforms. It delivers many APKs, enabling you to install the models individually on Android devices without installing them on Kodi.
You dedicate the APKs to the chosen BMC builds but are virtually the Kodi fork and do not come with the main Kodi Estuary skin interface. It means, if you install an APK model, you also install a rendition of Kodi modeled particularly for that model.
The benefit of this setting is that you can continuously use Kodi while relishing your preferred BMC model as an independent app entirely. The downside of this is that Android users can only use the BMC model.
Luckily, on Kodi, you can install BMC Builds, which makes it accessible on-other devices like:
- Raspberry Pi.
How to install BMC on Firestick
Before the BMC build app installation, foremost, you should confirm that your Fire Stick TV allows for sideloading the third-party apps. To do that, go to the settings from the Firestick home screen and enable third-party side loading. To install a third-party app on Firestick,
- Go to My Fire TV and click on it.
- Click on developer Options
- Turn on the option “app-from-unknown-sources.”
Also, you need to download an extra app to sideload apps on your device as Firestick does not let you download APK files straight from the web. The Downloader App is a recommended app for this task. To download the app, search for the downloader app using the search feature from the menu on the top of the home screen of Firestick and follow the instructions on the screen to install the app.
To install the BMC build on Firestick, there are two major categories that I will further break down into more straightforward steps. These two categories are;
- Installing the Midian Builds Interface
- Installing your preferred build.
Installing the Midian Builds Interface
The Midian Builds Interface is like the builds menu that allows you to select and install your desired build. To install this interface, follow the steps below:
Step 1. Open and start the Downloader application.
Step 2. Select the Home tab on the left and click the URL area on the right-hand side of the window.
Step 3. Type in “http://bit.ly/bmcbuild” when an onscreen keyboard pops up.
Step 4. Click the “Go” button on the screen when you enter the URL. If you use a remote, press the “Play” key.
Step 5. You will see a redirect to the Browser section of the Downloader app, where you will log a variety of builds. Select your preferred build for Kodi Krypton 17.6. The downloader app will download your selected APK.
Step 6. After downloading, it will automatically run. Click install after run time on the next screen and wait while the installation takes place.
Step 7. After installation, click “done” on the next window that pops up. On the downloader app home screen, delete the earlier downloaded files to manage space.
Installing your preferred BMC Build on Fire TV Stick
To do this, do the following steps:
Step 1. Press the Home key on the Firestick remote down for about 5 seconds. A window will pop up. Click on “Apps” and select the “Your Apps and Channels” option.
Step 2. Go to the tail of the list of the apps and then select the Midian-Builds option.
Step 3. From the Median Build on the left, select the build you will prefer installing, click on it and allow it to install. Note that aside from the Kids build, the rest of the builds deliver similar content. The only difference is the graphics.
Step 4. When a prompt comes up after installation, click OK to force close the Median Builds interface. It will take you to the Apps and Channels section.
Step 5. Windows, Linux, Mac. iOS
In the Apps and Channel section, go to the Median Build again. This time it will open the newly-installed desired build interface.
By following the above steps, you will successfully install the BMC-Build on Firestick.
How to install BMC on Kodi
The above steps carried out helps you install the BMC build on Kodi fork on Firestick. If you want to install BMC directly on Kodi, which allows you to use the build on several devices like Linux, Mac, etc., follow the steps below.
Step 1. Go to the gear icon on the top-left of the home screen, start Kodi and click settings.
Step 2. Select System settings.
Step 3. Click on “Add-ons” on the left-hand side.
Step 4. If it is off, turn on Unknown Sources by clicking on the toggle.
Step 5. Return to the settings menu on the previous screen (do this by pressing the back button once), and click on file manager.
Step 6. Select Add source.
Step 7. Select the option <None>
Step 8. Type in “http://tinyurl.com/bmcrepo1” carefully into the assigned field and click OK.
Type any name you like in the area that requests a name for the media source, and click OK when you are ready.
Step 10. Go back to “Kodi home screen” to select Add-ons.
Step 11. Click on the Package installer located at the Box icon in the top-left corner.
Step 12. Select the “Install from zip file” and open it.
Step 13. Select the source name you created earlier.
Step 14. Select the zip file “https://wherethemonsterslive.zip and allow it to unzip and install.
Step 15. A notification “Where-the-Monsters Live Repository Add-on installed” will come up at the top-right corner.
Step 16. Still, on the same window, click on “Install from repository.”
Step 17. Select and open the “Where the Monsters Live Repository” and choose Program to add ons.
Select BMC Wizard and install it on the window. Installation progress will appear on the screen, and “BMC Wizard Add on installed” will pop up when the installation is complete.
When the greetings and notes from the developer come on, click dismiss. Enable required settings after that and click continue.
On the next window, click on Median Builds and select (BMC) Median Builds. A variety of options will appear for you to choose from. Select one and install.
Select “First Time Installs” since you will be installing the build for the first time. Click on Yes, Install on the next window and allow for about 5 minutes for installation.
Close Kodi and finalized the installation by clicking “Force Close.”
By doing this, you’ve installed the BMC Build on Kodi.
Note that everything done on Kodi is visible to your ISP and Government, which makes streaming copyrighted media may be illegal. If you wish to bypass this process, you can get a good VPN to keep your content private.
Features of BMC
- The first thing you should know about BMC is that various builds suit your needs and work for multiple devices.
- Whichever BMC Build you install on Fire TV Stick or on Kodi App, the interface is the same. It is especially true for the Simple Krypton Build.
- On Firestick, please hold on while the build is installing all of its addon update processes before you begin using it, as doing so will increase the speed of the build.
- The setup of the builds is similar. Around the bottom and across the width of the screen is the menu bar. If an option is selected, the pertinent addon for that option limes up above the menu.
- The submenu is not visible by default and aligns to the bottom of the menu bar. To view it, select an option on the menus and go further down.
- Selecting System in the menu bar triggers the submenu. Click on Video Add-ons, which enables you to see the catalog of all the video addons.
- Jira Service Management
- SolarWinds Service Desk
- Ivanti Service Manager
- ServiceNow IT Service Management
- ManageEngine ServiceDesk Plus
- Cherwell ITSM
If you are a frequent user of the BMC, Build an app on FireStick. Moving it up to the home screen might be a good idea as a newly installed-app might not show on the home screen. Do this by:
- Holding them the home button on the remote of your Firestick for about 5 seconds.
- On the window that pops up, select apps.
- Choose Median Builds at the end of the list of apps.
- On the remote, press the Menu key.
- Select the option Move.
- Drag and drop the Median Builds icon at the top row.
The arrays of builds for Kodi by BMC are pretty remarkable. They work smoothly on all platforms, including Firestick. The BMC Build looks promising, and you can use it for a while.
