XBMC relies on many 3rd party sites like www.thetvdb.com and www.fanart.tv to provide metadata transparently into your living rooms.

Meetup Postponed to Next DevCon/SCALE/LinuxTag

Posted By: Team XBMC on Sep 02, 2012 in Site News

Our apologies to Vienna users. The lack of consistent internet plus the incredible amount of discussion and work that we’ve managed over the past two days has made it next to impossible to put together and adequately advertise a Meetup in time. Even as this post is being written, we’re STILL discussing potential UI upgrades! …

This is just a quick note for addon developers. A recent change to the codebase from the August cycle has added a new “content_type” parameter. With this parameter, addons that provide access to content that includes both audio and video (like the Internet Archive) can now be limited to only one content type, depending on …
