XMBC Media Center For iPhone, iPad And Apple TV Released
Developers of XMBC Media Centre (formerly known as XBOX Media Centre) â€“ the open source media center program have released their application for jailbroken iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and 2nd generation Apple TV.
Its not a thin client streamer or a remote but a full-fledged XMBC client, including support for playing a variety of codecs, with hardware support for both 720p and 1080p HD video.
You will be able to drag and drop media from your computer, or share it on your home-network so “no longer is your AppleTV2 chained to iTunes.”
There are still some issues that need to be ironed out. Since XMBC for 1st generation Apple TV was ported to iOS devices, the touch controls are not designed for the interface. Playback of 1080p content is a little choppy currently but developers are working on it and are confident that it will be sorted out.
Launch Cydia on your jailbroken iOS device:
- Tap on the Manage Tab and then tap on Sources.
- Tap on the Edit button and then tap add to add the following repo URL to add sources: http://mirrors.xbmc.org/apt/ios/
- After it is successfully installed, tap on the Search tab and search for XMBC.
- Tap on XMBC-iOS to install it on your iPhone.
Thatâ€™s it, you should see the XBMC icon on the homescreen.
