Kodi is an open source media player of all kinds, media sites, and more. It offers a variety of content sources such as YouTube, Spotify, and even Netflix. It is a great choice for those who want to stream videos, music, and other media from the internet. Let’s walk you through installing MC 1080P addon on Kodi.
MC 1080p Add-on, or Multi-CORE, allows you to play your 1080p videos on your Kodi / Fire Stick. Once installed it will automatically scan your external drive for 1080p videos and add them to your list.
In this guide, I will show you how to install MC 1080P addon on Kodi 18.2 and Kodi 17.6. The installation method demonstrated here works on all the Kodi supported devices including your Amazon FireStick, Windows, Mac & Linux, Android & iOS and more.
MC 1080P Kodi addon brings to you an impressive rally of movies in 1080p quality. Full HD streaming is probably the biggest draw of this addon. You will only find the movies that were originally shot in 1080 or have been remastered.
High streaming quality is not the only thing about this addon that I like though. I also love that MC 1080P offers superfast one-click play. You click a title and it almost instantly starts playing the video. And, if you find the navigation slow due to metadata processing, simply go to addon settings and disable metadata (I have demonstrated how to do that later in this guide).
MC 1080P also lets you sign in with your Trakt and Real Debrid accounts for an even better experience. For all these reasons and more, MC 1080P has also become the part of our Best Kodi Addons list.
Update: MC 1080p is not working at this time. We will let you know if there is any update. In the meantime, please try other addons from our list of Best Kodi Addons.
How to Install MC 1080 P Addon on Kodi
The installation process I am going to take you through is simple. You just need to make sure you follow each step carefully. To make things even simpler, I have subdivided the process into various important parts as follows:
- Part 1: Enable Unknown Sources
- Part 2: Add Man cave repo source path to Kodi
- Part 3: Install Mancave repository & MC 1080P addon
I will now get you started with the process starting with Part 1.
Part 1: Enable Unknown Sources
The security settings within Kodi block the installation of addons from the third-party sources (also called unknown sources). But, when you allow these unknown sources, you can install any third-party addons like MC 1080P. Here is what you need to do:
#1: Go to the Kodi Settings from the home screen by clicking the cog/gear icon (top-left)
#2: Now open System from the menu (or System settings if you still use Kodi 17.6)
#3: Go ahead and select Add-ons option on the left part of the next screen
#4: On the same screen, click Unknown Sources toggle/switch on the right to switch it ON (it must be OFF by default)
#5: Choose Yes when prompted to make sure Unknown Sources remains enabled
Note: You may ignore the warning message above for MC 1080P as we have tested it and it is hundred percent safe. If you like, you may switch Unknown Sources OFF later after installing this addon.
Part 2: Add Man Cave Repo Source Path to Kodi
This is the part where you tell Kodi where to fetch the Mancave repository from. You need to add a URL and this is how you will do it:
#1: Open the Kodi Settings one more time
#2: Choose File manager on the following window
#3: Click Add source next
#4: Click <None> on the next window that pops up
#5: Enter the URL/Path: http://kodi.mancavekodi.com/
#6: Highlight the section Enter a name for this media source. Now type the name of the source you want to identify it with. You can choose any name you want.
Let’s enter MC
You have added the source path for Mancave to Kodi.
Part 3: Install Mancave Repository & MC 1080P Kodi Addon
Here is how you will use the source to install the addon:
#1: Click Add-ons on the left on the Kodi home-screen
#2: Open Package installer by clicking the small, dropbox like icon in the top-left corner
#3: Choose Install from zip file
#4: Click MC (or click the name that you chose earlier for the source in Part 2)
#5: Open the repo folder next
#6: Click the zip file named repository.mancaverepo-x.x.x.zip
Note: x.x.x in the zip file name is the version number. As I write this guide, the version number is 2.0.3 as you see in the image. However, it may change later.
#7: Now wait for the Man Cave Repo Add-on installed message, which is displayed in the top-right
You have successfully installed the Mancave repository
#8: Now click Install from repository
#9: Open Man Cave Repo
#10: Select Video add-ons
#11: Click MC 1080P
#12: Click Install on the bottom right
#13: Click OK when you see this list of additional addons that will be installed with MC 1080P (this step is only for Kodi Leia 18 users)
#14: Wait for about a minute. You will know that MC 1080P addon has been installed when the notification is displayed on the screen on the top-right
So, that’s how you install MC 1080p addon on Kodi.
Before you start streaming with Kodi Addons or Builds, I would like to warn you that everything you stream on Kodi is visible to your ISP and Government. This means, streaming copyrighted content (free movies, TV shows, live TV, and Sports) might get you into legal trouble.
Thankfully, there is a foolproof way to keep all your streaming activities hidden from your ISP and the Government. All you need is a good VPN for Kodi. A VPN will mask your original IP which is and will help you bypass Online Surveillance, ISP throttling, and content geo-restrictions.
I personally use and recommend ExpressVPN, which is the fastest and most secure VPN. It is compatible with all kinds of streaming apps and devices.
NOTE: We do not encourage the violation of copyright laws. But, what if you end up streaming content from an illegitimate source unintentionally? It is not always easy to tell the difference between a legit and illegal source.
So, before you start streaming on Kodi, here’s how to get VPN protection in 3 simple steps.
Step 1: Get the ExpressVPN subscription HERE. It comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. Meaning, you can use it free for the first 30-days and if you are not satisfied with the performance (which is highly unlikely), you can ask for a full refund.
Step 2: Click HERE to download and install the ExpressVPN app on your streaming device. If you are using a FireStick, I have given the exact steps starting with Step 4 below.
Step 3: Click the Power icon to connect to a VPN server. That’s all. Your connection is now secure with the fastest and best VPN for Kodi.
The following are the steps to install Kodi VPN on your Fire TV devices. If you have other streaming devices, follow Step 1-3 above.
Step 4: Subscribe to ExpressVPN HERE (if not subscribed already).
Step 5: Go to Fire TV Stick home screen. Click Find followed by Search option (see image below).
Step 6: Type Expressvpn in the search bar and select when it shows up.
Step 7: Click Download.
Step 8: Open the ExpressVPN app and Sign in using the email ID and password that you created while buying the ExpressVPN subscription.
Step 9: Click the Power icon to connect to a VPN server. That’s all. Your FireStick is now secured with the fastest VPN.
A Quick Look at MC 1080P Kodi Addon
It looks like a straightforward addon to me that you can get started with quickly. To access MC 1080P, go to the Kodi home-screen and then go to Add-ons > Video add-ons. In fact, if you select Add-ons on the Kodi home-screen, you will find it in the Vide add-ons section.
Here is the main-screen of MC 1080P addon. It displays the number of online movies at any particular time.
As you can see, the movies are categorized by each year separately from 2010 to 2018. Then there are categories for movies from the decades 2000 and 1990. The addon also has a category for movies before 1990 where you can explore the titles from as far back as the 1930s.
MC 1080P Kodi addon only features movies and no TV shows. But, the movie catalog is very impressive. I haven’t seen a lot of add-ons featuring the most recent and really old movies at one place.
MC 1080P offers one-click play. Just choose the title and it begins playing in almost no time. Most titles work, but some may not.
How to Disable Metadata Processing on MC 1080P
When you open any folders inside the MC 1080P addon, it takes too much time to show the playlist. It is because the addon gets slow due to metadata processing. Thankfully, you can speed up things by disabling metadata in the addon Settings. Here is what you need to do:
Click Settings on the main-screen of MC 1080P addon
Click Customization on the left of the Settings window and on the right and disable the option Enable Metadata
With this, MC 1080P will become significantly faster
MC 1080P is one of the best Kodi addons I have seen lately. Not only does this addon boast of a big movie library, it also offers fast, one-click streaming. The addon also promises fast navigation provided you disable Metadata in the settings. You will find a lot of movies here ranging from the latest to as old as from the 1930s. The interface is simple and easy to get used to. Just pick the year or decade you want to watch the movie from and click the title. MC 1080P Kodi addon will play it instantly. It looks like a wonderful addon to me and I recommend you to give it a try.
