First “User-Friendly” Build of XBMC Released For Android


For fans of XBMC, this should make you happy. Last night, the team introduced the first “user-friendly” version of the application, which actually runs alongside an additional media player, but makes for a much better user experience on the device. I personally have not tested it out yet, but people on XDA are reporting pleasant results so far. 

Down below, we have added in a link to the forum where you can download the necessary files and get to streaming. XBMC released a promo video as well which is embedded below, but I would probably stay away from that. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Download XBMC here.

    FYI, this is in no way an official release from the XBMC team

  • Uhh.. A theme song? That’s horrible.

    Awful video. Here’s to hoping this functions well. I have been wanting an app that streams videos from my computer as well as my xbox. The last build I tried was kind of a mess.

      You might consider Plex for streaming across your network. XBMC can do it, but Plex was based on XBMC, and the whole point is to offer transcoding/streaming across your network. XBMC is better for use on a HTPC, and for watching content for free with addons like Icefilms, Navi-X, and 1Channel.

    Tried it on my Galaxy S3. Seemed to be much worse performance and more glitches than the official XBMC beta from a few months ago, and the official release didn’t require MX player to be installed either.
