Some of you may have already heard of XBMC already, some of you may not have any idea what on earth it is! Well for the less-informed of you guys, here’s the break down:

XBMC is a media Center Software, which manages your Music, Music Video, Movie and TV Show library.

  • It was originally Made to Run of Xbox’s , Now runs on Xbox, Windows, Linux, Mac, Apple TV and as a Live CD version
  • It will automatically Organize your movies and TV shows, download all the Cast and crew data, wallpapers, posters etc.
  • It’s fast and stable

Basically You get something like this, (i’m betting these screen shots will explain enough 😉 )

 

XBMC Home Page

Of Course the First Thing that anyone notices about XBMC is it’s really catchy Home pages. I really must say, i was really impressed about the Attractiveness of XBMC. However, mere mortals, do not be fooled by the sweet sights and sounds of our friend XBMC, it’s a something you EARN, not simply install….

Movies

If Configured correctly, XBMC manages your movies etc. it will do a Completely perfect job of what is has to do. Nothing more, nothing less.

Movies

Even More Movies

TV Series

From my experience of using XBMC for all this time, i found that TV series are a bit tricky to get up and running, but after you get the engine warmed up, it’ll hum along like a charm 🙂

XBMC Music

I’m not going to lie to you, the music player, in my opinion is not exactly the best. I dont know, this section is based on the taste of the user, how ever, i just FELT like this is a bit lacking when compared to iTunes or SongBird, but then again, i might be a bit prejudice.

Video Player

Finally the video player, well, what can i say :/ it does what it’s supposed to, nothing more , nothing less.

Keep an Eye Out for my next article on Installing XBMC!!

Till then,

TTYL!
