    If you Want Addons and extra Skins Add These Also

    ADDONS and THIRD PARTIES

    Third parties packages will be distributed via a reserved PPA: the xbmc-addons PPA. You will find there skins, scripts and plugins. I suggest you add it to your sources to benefit from all contribution put there.

    I've watched this in use at byrnies place & it is very impressive. It automatically pulls all the Info for each movie from IMBD too. Well worth looking at :thumbsup:

    latest stable release is Frodo 12, itll run on linux, android, apple and windows now, i use a mini android pc (Hdmi dongle) and its fantastic for streaming films, music and tv shows as well as other uses once youve got the basic xbmc installation from xbmc.org goto xbmchub.com for plugins, easiest way to get the decent plugins is putting Fusion on it

    Ive got a UG007 which is decent for sd but struggles with 1080p, there are ways to run it with hardware acceleration but requires a nightly build using an external player, but yes it runs on a raspberry pi
