I bought Raspberry a month ago and I had so many research plans for this device. One of my idea is to make my old TV become complete media center solution. After googling some references I found that XBMC could help me!
Installing XBMC for Raspbian is really straight forward.
1. First add repository for the XBMC binaries, type this on your console :
sudo echo "deb http://www.deb-multimedia.org wheezy main non-free" >> /etc/apt/sources.list
2. Get the GPG key for this repository
3. Install the GPG key you just download
sudo dpkg -i deb-multimedia-keyring_2012.05.05_all.deb
4. Update your package list
sudo apt-get udpate
5. Install XBMC
sudo apt-get install xbmc
Follow the instructions on your console.
6. Start XBMC
Type “xbmc” on your console to start XBMC
Here’s the screen of XBMC
I tried some features such as Podcast, Internet Radio, Youtube, Vimeo, and Web browser. Everything works normally, but the web browser need more improvement! Also I test XBMC remote control using android device, this remote control is really helpful! Another thing what I love is we can install add-ons for XBMC from the XBMC dashboard.
