This is something you Android users may have been waiting for, it was announced back in July that XBMC was coming to Android.
So what is XBMC? Well it was originally developed for the X Box as a media centre application that can be customised. The application has recently been developed to work alongside the Android platform after having previously been available for Windows, Linux, iOS and OS X.
The build is not yet available as the XBMC for Android is currently under development. After its popularity over the past few years across other platforms, we were eagerly anticipating the arrival for Android. The project has been developed and supported by tech volunteers worldwide – it is a free and open source that anyone can use but it is also an extremely powerful tool. The XBMC application aims to play any kind of media format that you present to it and what’s even better is that it will do it from pretty much any location.
At the moment there is not a completely stable version for Android but as we eagerly await it’s arrival we are intrigued at Android developer “kemonine96” has produced his own working nightly builds. Although there are some drawbacks from this development such as low battery life due to high processing as well as moderate screen flickering (which can be a pain!) there are some working add-ons that are very efficient such as Tv Catch up and BBC iPlayer.
