Carlos Gutierrez: What kind of box do you recommend to buy? Need something that runs smoothly
and plays 1080 with no problem. Your help would be appreciated.
Al Sutton: So, +XBMC on an +OUYA..... :)
Dan Phillips: XBMC running on the Ouya
Matt Burns: *I may have to find a new use for my Raspberry Pi!*
Granted, it costs three times as much, but the Ouya is running through the
XBMC menus quite a bit faster than on my Pi. I'm still thoroughly enjoying
my Pi as a set-top box, but since I have an Ouya on the way anyway...
VR-Zone: Ouya Console Demonstrated Running XBMC Media Centre (video)
As the Android open source Ouya console edges closer to its launch date,
gamers are eagerly anticipating enjoying the wealth of Android and PC games
that will be available to play once the Ouya console launches.
However another side to the Ouya console offers entertainment in a
different vein and allows you to enjoy the likes of XBMC media app centre
on the Ouya Console. To provide you with a glimpse of what you can expected
from the Ouya console running XBMC ones of its developers has put together
a short demonstration.
Chris Richardson: Gotta figure out how to get the dev stuff going....
Joe Duong: Ouya running XBMC. It seems to run it MUCH faster/better than the Raspberry
Pi! Paint me impressed.
XBMC running on the Ouya
Can't wait for mine to arrive!
Mike McAllister: XBMC running on the Ouya
michael yunkin: $99 media center -- looking forward to this!
XBMC running on the Ouya
Brandner Kaspar: :)
cc +Ole Albers
Mark Shepherdson: looking good, cannot wait to get my hands on it
Jörgen Andersson: +XBMC +OUYA
livingretro79: next to emus another reason i'd love to have this. i held back on building
a raspberry pi box to see what this can do.
Nathan Betzen: Nice. So far I've gotten Tom Hanks and a registered sex offender.
teunvl95: why? ps4 and ouya are 2 completely different devices with different
purposes in very different price ranges.
fhjefhjr: You didn't mention that they are also both small and cheap.
shivyyz: 1. yes but most android distros do not play them natively and some do but
there are work arounds like this: /watch?v=pOx02cNnkyw best bet would be to
just share stuff over the network. 2. that is more of a software thing than
a hardware one 3. yes but a powered hub is recommended 4. dunno 5, yes,
that is a software option not a hardware one.
Charlie Maynard: oh, flash :)
paul canales: Does anyone know when this will be available at gamestop besides from
Nathan Betzen: It will not be able to do 10-bit encodes. No hardware decoders can do them.
Nathan Betzen: I showed you my local IP. If you can find my computer from 192.168.1.1, I
wish you all the luck in the world.
Compton Boodhoo: This is great news. I can't wait to order one. I primarily want to use this
as an xbmc box in my basement. I'm hopeful everything will be sorted out by
Spencerwalker21: I wish that netflix July and YouTube would make offical outs apps
getawaygames: yes it will you just need astro file manager and a usb you put the file on
the usb and find it in the file manager it looks surprisingly well it can
handle it in 720p or 1080p
SpikerDragon95: PlayStation 4 controler jajaja
ILIKETHEMUSIK: Is it possible to play Real Racing 3 on the Ouya on 42" TV ?
Nix Nightbird: Unfortunately the Roku (which I love) will not stream 1080p mkv very well,
can't access files over 4GB via USB, and won't play avi files, either. The
Roku's streaming works much better with Plex installed, but then you have
to have a PC transcoding stuff. The point of XBMC on the Ouya is to skip
the PC, and let the Ouya do the work. It doesn't fuss over codec,
container, size, or source. The Ouya, if it ever gets decent support on
Netflix and if Plex works well, will be a nice alternative
MrMinerKid: Playstation's 2nd Dual Shock controller TOTALLY ripped off the ouya's
Nyghthawk: Popcorn hour.....
gerritbot: thanks for showing this, I was curious to see that. xbmc is, to me, some of
the best software out there, and having it on an Ouya might almost make it
Missile Lawnchair: You sound like ullillillia's older brother.
David Key: Scheduled for June release in retail. Not sure what date though, they were
not able to tell me when I pre-ordered at Gamestop.
wdtk96: Are all of those tv programs free?
Eleven Eleven: lsf version is in alpha and really unstable
DeathBlade110: Alright. I was curious if it could because most of my videos are in MKV
files at 1080p. I like that format due to the fact of its many advantages.
xooGFXoox: Android is capable of playing .mkv files so yeah. It should.
Iohan Reyes: OpenElec 3.0 (running XBMC Frodo) on Raspberry Pi.
Trippolette3: It's the Down/Up speeds for my home connection. And alright, I'm sure I'll
be fine in that case. Initially I was looking for a device to hookup my
external drive and play various files through it. But, after finding the
Ouya and learning what it is, I'm considering just waiting for it to be
released and using it opposed to something like the Boxee Box or WD TV
Live. Thanks for the response, though.
TheHomebrewReview: will it run the Veetle streaming plugin?
Nix Nightbird: Again, you're sideloading an Android build onto the Ouya. Once the
Ouya-specific version is available it will smoke the mx2, I'm sure.
Hackf0rce2013: "Click A, ah I mean O", you're an XBOX person aren't you ;)
shivyyz: why bother with an external drive? just use a network share... less clunky
than constantly shuffling a drive between your desktop/laptop and ouya. i
also say that because you need NTFS for large files (4+ gigs) and im not
sure if ouya will mount NTFS drives out of the box. this way you can also
download files to the drive via your desktop computer while the ouya plays
other files from the same network shared drive...
Jack Binns: Humm, well if you going to use it mostly for XBMC I would say wait. The
Ouya seems to run it a lot better. The Raspberry Pi is just okay for it...
JustSirk: I wanted the ouya to work for XBMC but it just can't handle it, even the
libstagefright version is buggy as hell and doesnt play very intensive
high-bitrate files without stuttering. Maybe Ouya can adapt the special
edition XBMC that comes with the Midnight MX2 to work on it then it'll be
something. Until then I'll stick with the MX2 for my media HTPC.
fhjefhjr: The BCM2835 SoC which the Raspberry Pi is based around was intended to be
used in media centre applications. This is shown by the hardware video
encoding and decoding it is capable of performing.
Jack Binns: Well a raspberry pi can so I'm sure this will.
Trebor Rude: At one point in the video (with the "heavyweight" skin), I saw "Live TV"
mentioned. That's exactly what I'd like to use the OUYA / XBMC for: getting
live TV into my home theater. Does XBMC for Android support USB TV tuners?
If so, then PVR capability should also be possible (perhaps with an
external USB hard drive).
tommmmmer: I know.... this is always the big question and yet its always omitted from
reviews. The reason why this will sell to hardcore users if it does is..
its about $200 cheaper than a pc and only 70 more than a pi
