Have you ever wondered what is happening right now somewhere else in the world? Do you wish you could know? Now you can. Kodi Earthcam addon is a plugin or complement for Kodi that enables you to tune into the streams from webcams set on several locations throughout the United States and the world. You can check out what's happening on Time's Square, or on a beach somewhere in the Caribbean. This is a nice and curious addon that's a break away from the traditional ones such as the 10 best Kodi movies addons or the best Kodi addons for Live TV, and will provide you with a neat hobby to engage into while you are not watching movies.

The Kodi Earthcam Plugin breaks up geographical locations into two major areas: USA and Worldwide. There is also a "Featured Cams" section, where you can see the most interesting streams this addon has to offer. With the Featured Cams, you can visit places like the Eiffel Tower or the Statue of Liberty; all from the comfort of your living room. To make your visit more enjoyable, it would be better to browse through the cameras with a wireless HTPC keyboard, like the Logitech K400 Plus or any other you prefer. Is it complex to add Earthcam to Kodi? Not that much.
