"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).
