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.

XBMC won't last forever


This software is extremely popular at the moment, using it you can stream movies, TV shows, music in fact anything. Raspberry Pi is not ideal for running XBMC, but does the job more than adequately.I have XBMC installed on my laptop and it only works marginally better. I've also seen XBMC on some of the hardware boxes you can buy to turn your TV into a smart TV. Or at least that's how they are advertising these boxes.

It won't be long before someone spoils this situation. Like Napster, it seems that all good things on the internet come to an end. The authorities can't stand us using unregulated software and stamp it out when they catch up with us.
