  • XBMC is a cross platform media player, that focuses on playing back media stored both on devices of all sorts and the Internet. The latest pre release version of this open source media player brings support for Zeroconf, which means Apple AirPlay compatibility.


    What it all means is that your Android device can become an AirPlay receiver for audio and video and this time you won’t need workarounds for it. Other features include the fact that ripped CDs can be added automatically to the music library and ripping support is now extended with AAC and WMA encoding.

    With this update, XBMC can also act as the default player of video and audio content when launched in an Android file browser. Another benefit of the new update is the new set of settings descriptions. When you highlight a setting, there will be a small description pop up describing it. Profiles can now have their settings levels locked, for the sake of kids protection.

    More details can be found on the XBMC page below and a download link is here.
