I’m a big fan of XBMC. Its a powerful multi platform media centre system that is capable of playing back pretty much any media format. Another great benefit to using XBMC is that it has a multitude of talented and dedicated devolpers who provide literally hundreds on addons that enhance its basic features by adding streaming audio and video services for example. One such example which is especially important if like myself, you reside in the UK, is the BBC iplayer addon. The functionality and quality of this addon is superb. Here is a short video I put together showing you the addon in action.
