Xbmc music library not updating
Two years ago, Amazon released its Fire TV, a tiny set-top box which brings media streaming services such as Netflix or Amazon Prime Video to your living room.
The media center software is open-source and available for other systems like Android, i OS, Mac OS X and Windows operating system as a native application.
It’s just sitting there, dying to play all your media. This isn’t ideal either, though, because they typically have terrible interfaces or awful codec support. It aggregates your media, matches it to media in its database and downloads extra metadata (such as synopsis and ratings) and media (such as posters and TV themes) to provide you with as much information as possible for your entire library.
But how can you play the content from your computer on your TV? Wouldn’t it be great if you could have access to all of your media from pretty much any device on your network, supporting almost every file type and presenting it with a beautiful, easy to use interface? While it started out as an application designed exclusively for the Mac, it has since spread out to cover Windows and partially work on Linux.
This leads to an endless amount of new apps for the Fire TV, including Kodi (formerly known as XBMC).
For only 100 bucks for a Fire TV or as little as 39 USD for a Fire TV Stick, you’re able to bring a powerful media system to your living room which is capable of streaming 1080p videos using Kodi / XBMC.
