XBMC 13.0 Gotham – The Beta 2 We Deserve
17 Mar

It’s been a mere 13 days since beta 1 came out, and already we’re ready for beta 2. This is almost entirely a “fix” beta release, meaning no new features, only a more rock solid foundation. Still, many of those fixes are worth mentioning in an abbreviated change log. For a more full rundown of the features of XBMC 13, see our Beta 1 post.

Fixes
* Subtitles for videos over http should now support the same subtitle functions supported by local media (Note: Certain subtitle issues will only be fixed when non-default skins provide updates. Other fixes are in the works.)
* Rockchip devices on Android will no longer cause XBMC to crash occasionally during playback
* PVR Programming Guide cleanups
* AudioEngine improvements to handling AC3 and DTS, as well as smarter handling in Android and intelligent EAC3 recognition
* Crash on exit should be fixed on various platforms
* JSON-RPC file listing fixes
* DXVA fixes in Windows for older Intel GPUs
* Wording and grammar fixes throughout the UI
Additional Features Not Mentioned in Beta 1 Announcement
As some users have rightly noted, while almost every major feature has been highlighted in some form or other in the various monthly blog posts, not all of them were discussed in the Beta 1 blog. The following is a list of a few of those that probably deserve a second round of attention. (Additionally. there are a few XBMC 13 features that are not quite working now, due to changes such as the iOS 7 update. We will hold off discussing those until the bugs have all been worked out.) For now, however:

* When initiating a library cleaning, XBMC will send a wake-on-lan request to any sleeping servers first, before cleaning the library, to ensure that content isn’t unnecessarily cleaned
* Numerous PVR fixes and updates with additional new features updated on a per-platform basis. For more info, check out our PVR wiki page
* Copy/paste support on Windows, OSX, and iOS to match copy/paste support elsewhere
* Movie sets are now user editable
* Episodic bookmarks – If episodes are not broken into individual parts (e.g. Adventure episode 1 and 2 are in the same video file), a bookmark can be set that will cause launching episode 2 from the UI to go directly to the bookmark in the video file
The Shirt
For those of you on the fence about the XBMC t-shirt (also available in women’s sizes and as a hoodie, as well as multiple colors), you should know that as of this writing there are only 1 day and 12 hours left to buy. Time’s just about up!

Fun related fact: As of this writing, you, the users, have nearly generated as much as a diamond sponsorship for the Foundation purely through t-shirt sales. Serious thought is currently being given to the idea of making The Buyers of the Beta Shirt a Diamond Sponsor, listed on our sponsor page.

Such a decision has to be approved by the Foundation board of directors (and we still aren’t there yet in sales), but if sales keep going like they’ve been going (tell your friends!) and the board approves the decision, every person who bought a shirt could go to our sponsor page, point to the Buyers of the Beta Shirt listing, and say, “I too am a Diamond Sponsor of XBMC.”

After reading the last review I tried out XBMC and must admit it has come a very long way since it began. As an HTPC app it is incredible. There are many built in functions and lots of addons you can download within XBMC. You can even download and install skins with the click of a button. Adding different video feeds is a just click of a button away. It really is incredible how far this program has come. It also supports DLNA file sharing although video support is very basic and only offers a few video formats. If you haven't tried XBMC in a while, check it out.

XBMC has come a long way since the last round of comments in late 2009, and I just couldn't let it sit there with a out of date 'out of 10' rating. It's a mature product with a strong following of users and programmers and has a very active forum, so it deserves a better score.

In my opinion it's the best media centre application of it's type.

Beautiful to look at and very ambitious in scope. Looks very promising. Unfortunately I was hoping that since it had Xbox origins, it would play HD DVD format, but it won't. I still have about 30 HD DVDs that I was hoping to view with this. I have an Xbox external disc drive, but no media player that will play it.

It is free and a lot of work has been put into it but it is still a long ways away from being useful; it is getting better and better but it is not there yet.

I found it hard to setup and did not particularly find the support to be that good. Seems like you have to be a died in wool XBMC believer otherwise you are not treated very well.

I completely disagree with last poster. Excellent media center app, very mature, not beta. Great support from the xbmc.org community.

For use in Windows this software has potential but is still buggy(smb support for example is supposed to work but it mostly does not) and is lacking. The volunteer folks who are working very hard on this are spread thin and really do not have time to respond in a reasonable manner to questions or inputs. They tend to respond rather harshly to any kind of critique or questioning. It seems to be a rather aloof group.

Also, this software seems to be geared for folks with a high level of computer savy and programing expertise.

This def worth a Look . Shows its origins on the Xbox but seems to have all the bits you would expect in a media centre. Video audio and photos. I quite like the look and feel and it should support all the common codecs, with easy upgradeability. Still has some rough edges, but its a beta version. Considering the original Xbox is really just a cutdown computer without the Burden of running windows, this should transfer quite easily. Give it a try and let the developers know what you think.
