Watch Natethomas live right now.. February 22nd, 2013.. Ned Scott.. 9 comments.. Quick post, natethomas is speaking live at SCALE in about 2 minutes about building online communities.. http://www.. socallinuxexpo.. org/scale11x/video?room=458.. EDIT: over now.. Thanks for watching! More scale updates on http://facebook.. com/XBMC.. XBMC now available on iOS 6.. 1 for Apple TV.. natethomas.. 19 comments.. As many of you likely have been aware, neither XBMC nor any other non-Apple media center has been available for the updated Apple TV 2 Software 5.. 2 (iOS 6.. 1).. Now, we are pleased to announce that XBMC finally supports this update, thanks to the incredible work of XBMC dev Memphiz.. To get your updates on, head over to our wiki and follow the instructions for.. Apple TV version 5.. 0 and up.. XBMC Server Update, SCALE, and Other Notes.. February 5th, 2013.. 20 comments.. Now that some of the excitement of the XBMC 12 release has blown over, we need to take a moment to handle some maintenance and take a look at the very near future.. Server Update.. First up, this Sunday (Feb.. 10th) starting at 2100 UTC (1PM PST), we are finally going to deal with the ever increasing popularity of XBMC by upgrading servers and moving the forums onto a completely separate server from the XBMC.. org blog, downloads, and the wiki.. This way, when tech blogs and other news sites from all over the internet point to us, the massive load (375,000 page views on the blog alone last Wednesday) will not affect the support and development discussions in the forum.. From the user perspective, nothing will change, except there should be fewer forum (and blog) crashes.. With that said though, if forum.. xbmc.. org and xbmc.. org are acting glitchy at all on Sunday, there s a reason.. We d also like to thank.. WebHostingBuzz.. for generously sponsoring an additional server to help us bear the load.. SCALE.. Once again, XBMC will be attending.. in sunny Los Angeles, the weekend of February 22-24th.. This year, we plan on showing off some pretty exciting hardware at our booth, including the Pivos XIOS DS, PVR in action, and with luck an Ouya Dev Box.. Cory Fields (theuni), Keith Herrington (keith), Ned Scott (nedscott), and Nathan Betzen (natethomas) will be manning the booth, where we plan on having some awesome, never before seen XBMC swag.. Additionally, Nathan will be giving a talk on.. growing online software communities.. at 11:30am on Friday.. We d love to see you all there, and to help make that happen the SCALE organizers have agreed to help out the XBMC community.. If you enter the promotion code XBMC during.. registration.. , you can get 50% off your full access pass for the weekend.. There are no plans for an XBMC user meet up this year, but if enough of you speak up in the comments, we could definitely look into arranging one.. Clearing Up Confusion.. Recently we ve noticed a fair amount of confusion about what software is offered by Team XBMC and the XBMC Foundation.. To clear up that confusion, we d like to direct everyone to the.. page, which lists all the software XBMC officially supports.. If you happen to run into some software that is not on the list that appears to be offered by XBMC, don t hesitate to ask about it in the.. General Discussion.. area of the forum.. We d also like to take this time to ask the operators of all XBMC fan sites and related sites that use the name XBMC to include an official disclaimer, preferably on the front page, but at a minimum on your About page and on any software you distribute and on any official press releases that includes the following language:.. (Insertname) is not connected to or in any other way affiliated with XBMC, Team XBMC, or the XBMC Foundation.. Furthermore, any software, addons, or products offered by (Insertname) will receive no support in official XBMC channels, including the XBMC forums and various social networks.. We believe that language will effectively clear up most confusion.. We would also appreciate if any users who come across a site that uses the XBMC name without this disclaimer to inform us either on the forum or via our.. contact page..  ...   that s got thousands of people salivating.. It s absolutely unheard of when that piece of hardware pops out as the single least expensive means of running XBMC ever.. Thanks to the.. Raspberry Pi Foundation.. for their efforts and their support!.. Pivos: The XBMC for Android port catalyst.. The second new platform is XBMC for Android.. The simple fact of the matter is, XBMC for Android might not exist as a working port right now if it weren t for the decision of.. Pivos Technology.. to employ two XBMC Team members fulltime to make it happen.. Of course, countless other Team Members and non-Team coders have contributed to the code base both before and after that initial decision, but it was Pivos who gave our developers the necessary man hours to make XBMC for Android a reality.. In addition, in an unheralded move, Pivos has gone above and beyond the standard sponsor requirements and.. donated enough XIOS DS.. s to the Foundation so that every current XBMC Team member, regardless of skill set (from developers to wiki maintainers to testers), has or will have an Android device to tinker with and test things out on.. Finally, there are the friends and sponsors who provide all the data that makes XBMC what it is, including.. TheTVDB.. ,.. TheMovieDb.. Fanart.. tv.. , and.. TheAudioDb.. , among so many others.. In particular, we d like to acknowledge.. Weather Underground.. who stepped in to rescue XBMC when we lost our last weather host and also.. and.. Bytemark Hosting.. , the webservers who make XBMC.. org possible.. Thanks to you all!.. Conclusion and Download.. To get XBMC 12 Frodo, please visit our.. download page..

Raspberry Pi FAQ.. , or the.. Android FAQ.. , depending on your version, and don’t hesitate to report them in our.. forums.. and report verified bugs in.. Trac.. XBMC 12 Frodo - Release Candidate 3..

  • Title: Skins | XBMC
    Descriptive info: XBMC has a highly skinnable interface meaning that it can look radically different based on which skin is used.. Confluence is used by default, so this is what will greet you upon install.. You may wish to change the look to something more flashy, more artwork-based, etc.. It s up to you.. See the list below for a list of active working skins.. Visit.. this page.. for help installing these skins.. Aeon.. Aeon is a new interface for XBMC that was built upon a very simple brief: to create an attractive, sophisticated and above all personal environment for organising and enjoying media.. Of the many HTPC frontends in development and circulation, too many like to bombard the user with overwrought textures that draw attention away from the most important thing of all: the media itself.. 15.. Photos.. Back Row.. This is a very polished theme that s been around for years.. And very usable for both SD and HD setups.. It has grown so much over the years.. It also gives you plenty of views in individual sections (IE- TV Shows, show episode s, Movies, Music, etc.. ) Most all of it is HD.. Some remaining stuff is in the works.. It has been around the block for a very long time, and it always kept up being compatible with the newest XBMC release.. A lot of what s in it, was implemented on the fly as users would recommend additions or changes, to the point where it s grown into such a beautiful piece of work.. 14.. Confluence.. Confluence is set to replace PM3.. HD as the default XBMC skin for 9.. 11.. It is a combination of many popular skins, and attempts to embrace and integrate good ideas rather than reinvent the wheel.. 10.. MediaStream.. The MediaStream skin was developed by Team Razorfish over the course of about a year, before being publicly released on the 8th August 2008 (08/08/08).. It was  ...   they could see the background images better.. Since MediaStream was designed to focus on the media it wasn t really practical to adapt it for that purpose.. Instead I decided to create a new skin from scratch where the core concept was to make the skin itself very minimal so that the backgrounds could shine through.. 8.. PM3.. HD.. HD (Project Mayhem III High Definition) was based on the design of the Project Mayhem III skin by Chokemaniac.. This skin was created because as XBMC moved off the xbox platform onto PC s people were wanting to display proper 720p and 1080p versions of XBMC.. The old Project Mayhem III skin was designed for use on the xbox at low definition and looked very blocky when scaled up.. So this skin was creeated to fill the gap for High definition users.. 12.. Project Mayhem III.. Originally made by Chokemaniac as the next step after Project Mayhem 2, it was soon to replace the default skin that was inspired by Microsoft s Windows Media Center of the time to help XBMC get its own unique style and feel.. Rapier.. The goal is to provide a simple but elegant interface that emphasizes efficiency when browsing your media.. Important considerations are put on usability, performance, and providing the user with flexibility when it comes to customization.. Rapier supports the latest XBMC features and new ones will be added in the future as long as it fits in with Rapier s design goals.. Transparency!.. What is Transparency!? Short answer: a fanart skin.. The main goal of Transparency! is showing your fanart, fullscreen, in all of the views, all of the time.. Besides this, it also tries to support every neat new feature xbmc has to offer.. To save everyone a lot of time and trouble hacking the xml code themselves, all of these new features are already included in the skin, pre-configured and enabled by default (wherever possible)..
