MetalliQ is a fork by OpenELEQ (the guy who brought us the ExtendedInfo Script Mod) of the Meta add-on. This fork now also allows you to search for music and music videos using LastFM & the AudioDB as well as the TVBd & TVMd for content.

OpenELEQ has added a one click setup for libraries and players which takes a few steps out of the setup for you. You will need to select your favourite players or go with the selector.


This is a 3rd party add-on that is not supported by the Kodi Team. Do not post questions relating to this add-on on the Kodi Forums ( For support use the dev’s forum post
