XBMC is now known as "Kodi"; its main purpose is to allow easy media broadcasting within the same Local Area Network.

The Android client can be both a local server and local client. This means that you can broadcast videos or other media content from your device as well as receive these files from other devices on your network. It's an alternative to popular devices like Chromecast.

XBMC uses an interesting concept. You can use your Android as a media center selector. In other words, you can go through your media content on your phone and then click a button to broadcast the video to a receiving device. This makes it easy to use it as a sort of advanced remote for movie nights.

XBMC is very popular and has many "unofficial media channels". This means that you can also find content to stream online through it, but you should check the legality first before doing so. It's very extendable and has many add-ons available online. XBMC is one of the few free products that truly surpasses its competitors in every way. It can handle almost every major type of media content and even tags your files appropriately for easier navigation. You can't go wrong with this handy and efficient piece of software.

Pros:

  • Automatic media tagging for easier readability
  • Can handle almost any media format
  • Is completely free and can broadcast to almost any modern device

Cons:

  • Some "unofficial channels" may have pirated or malicious content
  • Interfaces among devices are inconsistent

This is the release of 18.5 "Leia"
