Free XBMC 10.0 - (Windows) (Mac) (Linux)

XBMC is a fantastic cross platform (Windows, Mac, Linux) media centre. It's very powerful, has loads of features and is customisable and extendible via plug-ins.

XBMC is open source, it will always be free and people can help improve it.

"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."

It does look stunning but, why would I use this rather than Mythbuntu which has support for tv cards built in?

I've read people say that XBMC is superior to MythTV in terms of UI and performance. XBMC has native MythTV support I believe, so you can use XBMC as a front end. I don't have a capture card so I can't really comment much further, though I'm sure it's all documented on the XBMC page/wiki.

XBMC is the best media Center I have ever used, and I have tried a few.

Been using this for years now fromthe old xbox and now on Windows, plays everything you throw at it with style and ease.

Much better than the boxee spinoff IMO.

What are you trying to do with your PS3? XBMC is for watching media...not for streaming it to other devices. So in effect, XBMC does what your PS3 does... but a lot more too.

For my PS3 i find PS3 Media server the best. It not only plays all the media on my pc but can also run stuff that is on my dvd from the dvdrom.

i set up a spare htpc with ubuntu recently and have it boot straight into XBMC. It really is the most awesome media centre I have used to date, I even have it set up so I can use my iPhone as a remote control for it!!!

@arduino I must be being a bit thick clicked the link and read through the wikipedia page but could not see how to install this onto an xbox that has an old xbmc installed on it. Any help gratefully received.

The wiki article links to the http://www.xbmc4xbox.org/ website, from where you can download the lasted build for the xbox. Click 'Forum' and follow the link at the top with the Xbox log and the text "Latest nightly build".

Cheers
