JW Broadcasting in XBMC or KODI

*Updated March 13th, 2015

If you are a fan of XBMC (KODI is the new name of XBMC) you can watch with ease JW Broadcasting material now thanks to a plugin.

As of March 13th, thanks to the author of the plugin Jonathan Demarks, this plugin works on Windows as well as Linux.

To start, you need to download the plugin. It's available here:

Once downloaded, run KODI/XBMC

Follow these screens to install it:

Go to system

Go to Add-ons

Go to "Install from .zip file"

Choose this .zip file

Once this process is done, you should be ready to use JW Broadcasting in XBMC/KODI.

Here is how you find it in XBMC/KODI once the process is done:

As you can see, I was able to easily watch the February 2015 Featured Program. The "play bar" on the bottom goes away after just a bit of time, which you already know if you are an avid XBMC/KODI user.

And again, many thanks to the creator of this wonderful plugin, Jonathan Demarks!

If you have any questions about this, please feel free to contact me. My contact information is on the side panel of this website.


  1. Hello thanks for putting this together! Any way to simplify the install by adding a source link to KODI and just installing as a plugin from the source link?

    Essentially write an install script to tell the files where to be extracted all from within KODI interface.
    This would be very useful for people like myself!

  2. I'll look into it. Never scripted for XBMC/KODI before, but I'm sure it can be done.

  3. Actually.. I was able to get it to install the plugin just by getting KODI to install right from the zip file when saved locally.

    This is great thnaks bro!

  4. Your dealing with a arm based processor difference there. This is a script, so I would assume that runs, but you could be missing software or codecs needed to run the script. If you feel up to the task, you can go through the files at and see if you can find what's missing. I know the plugin works on the newest version of KODI. I just tested it this morning. (Again though, this is on x86 architecture, not ARM...)

  5. The brother just updated this script Fmadriaga. It should work now even for OpenElec. (Here's hoping anyways)..
