XBMC 9.11

logoXBMC 9.11 codename Camelot for Mandriva Linux 2010.0

XBMC is an award-winning free and open source (GPL) software media player and entertainment hub for digital media.


XBMC is available for Linux, OSX, Windows, and the original Xbox. Created in 2003 by a group of like minded programmers, XBMC is a non-profit project run and developed by volunteers located around the world. More than 50 software developers have contributed to XBMC, and 100-plus translators have worked to expand its reach, making it available in more than 30 languages.

While XBMC functions very well as a standard media player application for your computer, it has been designed to be the perfect companion for your HTPC. Supporting an almost endless range of remote controls, and combined with its beautiful interface and powerful skinning engine, XBMC feels very natural to use from the couch and is the ideal solution for your home theater.

Currently XBMC can be used to play almost all popular audio and video formats around. It was designed for network playback, so you can stream your multimedia from anywhere in the house or directly from the internet using practically any protocol available. Use your media as-is: XBMC can play CDs and DVDs directly from the disk or image file, almost all popular archive formats from your hard drive, and even files inside ZIP and RAR archives. It will even scan all of your media and automatically create a personalized library complete with box covers, descriptions, and fanart. There are playlist and slideshow functions, a weather forecast feature and many audio visualizations. Once installed, your computer will become a fully functional multimedia jukebox.

XBMC è un media-player in grado di riprodurre la maggior parte di file audio, video e visualizzare immagini fino a 1080p e oltre, praticamente da qualsiasi fonte, inclusi i dischi locali, CD/DVD, unità flash USB, internet, condivisioni di rete.

E’ possibile riprodurre DVD-Video filmati con menu da ISO/IMG immagini-on-the-fly, gestisce tutti i formati di immagine digitale con le opzioni di panoramica/zoom, presentazioni con “effetto Ken Burns”, e si avvale di una funzione che consente sia di riprodurre audio e video, sia di visualizzare, sfogliare e ingrandire immagini, contenuti in archivi senza necessariamente doverli decomprimere. Inoltre è possibile scaricare da internet audio e video, sintonizzarsi su stazioni radio Internet (come Podcast e SHOUTcast), e ascoltare i vostri brani preferiti e scoprire le ultime novità, ad esempio da Last.fm.
XBMC ha un aspetto gradevole ed elegante con una semplice interfaccia fluida, intuitiva e flessibile, completamente personalizzabile anche nell’aspetto con plugins e skins scaricabili dalla rete.



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.
