XBMC Tutorial - Part 1




What do you think about this video?

Dome31337: Was this recorded in a submarine?!

allen castro: hi i downloaded xbmc for linux mint 11, I just notice the one from windows have scripts in the menu the version i got for linux doesn't have it. can you do a linux tutorial, thank you,

TechMadeEasyUK: Hi, there is an option under Settings-->Video--Library to update the video library on startup. This will add any new files every time you turn the device on.

TechMadeEasyUK: @psydaus Hi, thanks for the comment, my cursor is slightly different because I was actually using XBMC on an Apple Mac. I don't believe there is a way to change the cursor within XBMC. I'm not sure what you are asking with regard to the second part of your query, could you elaborate? Feel free to message me or Email me via the website

TechMadeEasyUK: @dhante0334 Hi, the issue is not a difference between Windows and Linux. This video is quite old now and XBMC has changed (to version 10.1) since then. The script and plugin features are accessed differently on the new version. Do a search for XBMC Dharma in order to see how the new features work.

mark ling: silly question, alright simply put it, i think it is illegal. but im almost certain im wrong.

mrbr549: Great video! Unfortunately, I've noticed that a lot of the video add-ons don't work. Is there some way to get them working again? Maybe you could do a video on how to repair scripts so the add-ons will work. Other then that, I love XBMC.

TechMadeEasyUK: @hasaniguy This is an older version, I made the video in May last year. Most of the "look and feel" is the same as Dharma, as is the installation in Windows. The only difference would be with the new plugin system on Dharma.

karrrzzzz: where do you download all the multimedia from? like the tv shows,movies etc

Thomas Homme: Hi. I have done exactly what you're doing, but it doesnt download the information for my tv-shows. It just stops, all movies works, but I can't access the library mode, and I don't get _any_ fanarts, got any ideas? Great movie btw :)

tranvozcaya: @TechMadeEasyUK well.. i will install it from the beginig.. then i'll try to folllow your tutorial once more to add "media files" following your instrucctions.. it looks so easy.. I thank you very much .. now i know i'm doing some thing wrong. I'll try up ..

crazyaboutwargames26: @TechMadeEasyUK from where I would like to know

TechMadeEasyUK: Yes there is.

TechMadeEasyUK: This was the default skin when this video was created in 2010

TechMadeEasyUK: This tutorial uses an older version of XBMC. The layout of XBMC has changed significantly since this video was made.

TechMadeEasyUK: Hi, are you sure you're downloading this version? The current "live" version is V11.0 - Eden.

idaus: i was wondering how you got your mouse that colour also it says live at the end of the downlad center so does that mean i can stream it through a usb on the back of my tv

TechMadeEasyUK: @crazyaboutwargames26 Online stores such as iTunes,

TechMadeEasyUK: Hi, XBMC runs on Windows so you should be able to add any Windows based game to the library. We'll look at covering this in another video.

dan folo: i've downloaded it but i have to keep installing it when i use it. solutions?

TechMadeEasyUK: That's correct yet, providing both PCs are on the same network

TechMadeEasyUK: Yes and Yes

TechMadeEasyUK: Hi, although XBMC started life as a hack for the original Xbox, there is no longer a current version for either the original Xbox or the Xbox 360.

TechMadeEasyUK: @BusinessMan4050 I own them

SalineDuckling: Where did you get all of your Tv-Shows from?

Nick Nerrog: How do you update it to download the shows description? Mine doesn't seem to do that.

TechMadeEasyUK: @crazyaboutwargames26 some of them are downloaded (legitimately) others are digital copies from Blu-rays and DVD's

crazyaboutwargames26: how did you get all those tv shows

TechMadeEasyUK: Sorry I only speak English

Together We Stand - Divided We Fall: To get this "look" just download & install the Confluence Vertical Mod

TechMadeEasyUK: @hasaniguy no I don't, but you're not the first person to ask so I'll see if I can find out how and then upload a video

kennethsTutorials: Thank you so much for the information, I have it added to my Xbox 1 and had no idea you could add thumbnails like that thanks.

Richard Saltos: I have mute in the cornel I can not listen to movies what I can do to connect the speakers

Rob Burton: Hi, I'm using XBMC on my Apple TV 1st gen and have 2 external hard drives containing my dvdv rips...... well my question is when I rip any new films in the future how do I update the movie metadata to show the video art and film description etc? Thank you

danny ho: oh forget the second question, you've already explained it, I wasn't paying attention.

kkkhumberto666: is there a volume control

detroitsbest: nvm thanks for replying :-)

TechMadeEasyUK: @tranvozcaya There isn't an up to date Megavideo plugin for XBMC. The best thing for you to do would be to ask on the forums to see if anyone is working on a plugin for XBMC that will let you use a Megavideo account

TechMadeEasyUK: Hi, there is no "out of the box" satellite integration with XBMC. It is primarily used to playback media files on your PC or on your home network. It will only playback the audio tracks and subtitles that are a part of the original movie file.

Gencler Birliyiy: Bu program ne ucundu

crazyaboutwargames26: @TechMadeEasyUK what I mean is did you downloaded all of those tv shows

TechMadeEasyUK: Actually, in the UK it is legal to make digital copies of your purchased movies for personal use.

detroitsbest: how do u get xbox scripts?

GabrooSherPunjabDda: So you can wirelessly stream videos from another pc? Is that correct?

TechMadeEasyUK: @crazyaboutwargames26 This has been asked further down the comments. I own them all.

Andres Rodriguez: lol urr blind

TechMadeEasyUK: @detroitsbest Can you confirm what you mean?

kkkhumberto666: Yeea I found out pressing ramdom buttens...its f8 or somthing thanks thow

TechMadeEasyUK: @tranvozcaya If you've installed it succesfully then there is no need to register on any website or forum. You have to provide your own movie library from your own media files, there is no free media associated with XBMC. You have to run the XBMC program on your computer and then add your media files to it's library using the "Add Source..." option under the Video menu.

TechMadeEasyUK: @thomaslool Thanks for the comments, unfortunately this video is a little out of date. A new version of XBMC has been released since I made this video. Under the new version, make sure that you have "The TVDB" installed under "TV Information" In the add-ons directory. This should pick up all the information for you.
