wait, im confused as sh*t. what does xmbc do(never really looked into it), and what can i use it on mobile wise? i got netflix but that sh*t is kind of disappointing at times. I know its not my connection, but that sh*t is like playing in 480p. My wifi is 30mb down constant, and my tmo is always at least 13mb down. not sure whats good, but i am on the hunt to find something better to stream/download anything



XBMC is an award-winning free and open source (GPL) software media player and entertainment hub that can be installed on Linux, OSX, Windows, iOS, and Android, featuring a 10-foot user interface for use with televisions and remote controls. It allows users to play and view most videos, music, podcasts, and other digital media files from local and network storage media and the internet. Our forums and Wiki are bursting with knowledge and help for the new user right up to the application developer. We also have helpful Facebook, Google+, Reddit, Twitter and Youtube pages.

Basically, you download and install XBMC. Then you install the Fusion hub. From the Fusion hub you can install repositories like 1Channel, IceFilms, YouTube, and SportsDevil to name just a couple. After you install those repositories you are able to stream the content from those sites directly through XBMC.

Follow the instructions on this site and you'll be good to go:



Read the posts above yours for additional add-on suggestions.

I use both. XBMC exclusively for movies on my HTPC hooked to my TV. Everything else is running Plex (tablet, laptop, cell phone.) My HTPC is backed up to my Windows Home Server which runs Plex 24/7. Entire music & movie library accessible from anywhere.

Yea you can. It just depends on what your inputs are on your video and sound card. I use an HDMI cord and a coaxial audio cord to hook my computer up to my TV and audio receiver.

honestly netflix used to be my main source for movies and shows, but i've barely used it since getting xbmc...xbmc with the 1channel plugin gives u access to almost every movie and tv show u can think off

I also use XBMC on my ATV2

but I dont get warm with these plugins, most videos are on 180upload or billionupload and if you want to open it you have to enter captchas....fu*ckin annoying.

Is there any workaround so I dont have to enter the captchas by hand?

I just got xbmc on my s3 and loaded all the addons. Man this sh*t is the fu*king truth. Im going to eventually get a raspberry pi and hook it up to the tv. You never need cable ever again with this app.

the same reason you would have it on any other device.
i have it on both of my computers, both phones, and my N7.
i sit there sometimes with one computer hooked up to the tv with a movie on, the other laptop, my n7, and my phone all streaming sports/espn/something else.
