Editors' Review

+

XBMC gives you access to tons of TV shows, movies, and other media, and it also allows you to play DVDs, all through one intuitive interface. Once you have the program set up, you can just sit back and flip through the various sections to find the entertainment of your choice.

Pros

Add-on categories: To customize this program to suit your needs, you'll have to select the add-ons you want. This process is streamlined by the way the app breaks different options up into categories that include Music, Video, and Pictures. Each of these categories contains tons of options for accessing free content of all kinds.

Extras: In addition to the normal media options, this app also contains some fun extras. These include things like a Movie Quiz program, Lazy TV, and Last Episode, which all serve to enhance your viewing experience and add depth.

Cons

Setup time: It does take a bit of time to set up this app and select all of the add-ons you want since there are so many options. Once you have made all of your selections, though, the app is very easy to navigate.

Bottom Line

XBMC gives you a lot of options for free TV, movies, and music to enjoy. The program, itself, is completely free as well, and the quality of playback is quite good.

"Best media center ever."

June 20, 2013  |  By woobdoy

 |  Version: XBMC 12.2

Pros

Quick response, plays everything, wife friendly, very configurable

Cons

Difficult to setup initially but then a real joy to use.

Summary

If you read the 'cons' given by some of the other reviewers, you will see that they are very old. Try the new Frodo and you will be amazed.

"Not Impressed"

March 30, 2013  |  By pocosdad

 |  Version: XBMC 12.1

Pros

Loaded and looked like it should work

Cons

Not what I expected for my particular system's capabilities. It didn't like looking through my 4 hard disks and being manageable.

Summary

I use Windows Media Center and GOM player...both meet my needs and seem to be user friendlier.

"XBMC w/NAVI-X is absolutely THE BEST!!"

July 17, 2012  |  By MercedesFL

 |  Version: XBMC 10.1

Pros

This is a wonderful source of watching FREE tv shows, movies, live TV and sports. For those who may be crunching money due to the poor economy, this is a blessing. You no longer have to pay for cable TV or satellite and don't have to rent movies! It has other mediums of use too, such as Windows, Apple TV, MAC, Androids, etc.

Cons

I had to do my own research initially to find out where to get the programs and how to download properly to allow it work. Must have a high speed internet connection for the streaming to work good.

"Nice UI and Easy to Setup..."

June 14, 2012  |  By listn84

 |  Version: XBMC 10.1

Pros

The UI is very nice and setup is easy. Audio/Video playback quality is very good. This can also play video files stored on a NAS that supports Personal Cloud connection using WebDAV remote connections to Shares. This is very helpful when your traveling and want to access the movies on your NAS from another Internet location (should be a high-speed connection like Fios or Cable).

Cons

The Music & Picture player don't show the Player controls at the top like the Video player does. I just started using this so I will poke around the settings and see if it can be changed.

Summary

More people are putting Network Attached Storage on their home networks that support Personal Cloud connections to the NAS over the Internet (Seagate Go Flex Home, Western Digital My Book Live, QNAP, etc.). This is nice for storing Music, Video, & Picture libraries in one location and being able to access them over the Internet when traveling. I have a WD My Book Live that uses the Wd2Go.com site to connect to my Personal Cloud using WebDAV.

When connected to my Personal Cloud I could not play MP4 video files using the common Media Players (WMP, VLC, Divx, QuickTime) because they do not support the WebDAV protocol for remote connections. The good news is that XBMC does support this connection and was easy to setup as follows:

1. Login to Wd2Go.com and connect to my Private share.
2. Start XBMC Player and go to Videos -> Add Source -> Browse -> Windows Network (SMB) -> Select WebDAV drive -> Select My Private Share -> Select My Media Folder
3. Click OK until My Media Folder is in the Videos menu.
4. Clicked My Media Folder and clicked the movie file I wanted to play.

The movie starts fast and the audio/video quality is very good as long as the Internet connection is high speed (Fios/Comcast).

What's new in version 15.0
  • Feature -Skip steps (additive skipping/seeking) - Skip steps as implemented in Kodi is a method of additive skipping (also known as additive seeking) that applies to both videos and music, it allows you to skip backwards and forwards with the left and right cursor keys (this is the default keyboard and remote mapping), and by pressing these keys multiple times you can skip with increasingly larger steps.
  • Feature - Audio Nodes - Added support for audio nodes that can define views that are used to organize your media from the music menu.
  • Feature - UPnP external subtitles - where you have video files that do not contain subtitles so subtitles are provided by means of a seperate subtitle file, both the video and external subtitles can now be sent over UPnP (previously only subtitles embedded in the video container worked).
  • Change - Music keymap - while in full screen music visualisation pressing the select/ok button will now show the OSD, previously this action would show the visualisation preset list, changed to keep consistancy between music and video section.
  • Feature - 3D video playlist switching - if you have a video playlist made up of a mix of 2D & 3D files then previously the 3D mode switch would only kick in if the first file was 3D, now we can properly transition from 2D to 3D and 3D to 2D at any point in the playlist.
