go find xbmc junk installer. thats the only recent release that ive seen leverage any kind of streaming capabilities (does not work well). xbmc4xbox is not a good solution for accessing content from the web. it is however still rather practical for 480p rips accessed over the network or from the hdd. tmdb scraper is fixed, so you can get all the synopsis and fan art which gives a wonderful feel to your media library. i just put complete collections of seinfeld and simpsons on one so my camp life is never without the warm fuzzies of old tv re-runs..... you can also use a upnp media server that handles the transcoding from pc. all in all it still does a great job of media playback unless your handling HD content....

im only getting into kodi because of ogxbox and im just baffled by what ive been missing out on.

the mxq s805 is like 25 bucks at times in CAD.

i picked one up the other day and was able to flash scottelec to the nand so it boots directly into a fork of librelec kodi v17.6

i am having fun with the streaming capabilities of this tiny piece of hardware... its awesome

plus on scottelec you can directly download retro roms and it has retroarch/emulationstation to manage. its so fun. xbox is way smoother on emulation tho.

i have 2 rokus in the  house because plug and play plex is hard to beat these days, roku works well and its likely alot like firestick....

the fence that has kept me from being on kodi much is plex.

also the xbox sees the upnp server that plex broadcasts. which is also cool but.... plex doesn't transcode for the xbox out of the box.

i read here and there where people have created a new profile for the xbmc box for plex.... with good results..... this is a project that id love to see some work on. its greek to me presently.

if my pc could transcode hd rips on the fly for an xbox while displaying good cover art and synopsis info i'd consider the unit future proofed in a rec room.
 

ive never tried scraping a upnp source in xbmc4xbox tho.

I wouldn't even bother, the xbox is just too old of hardware at this point to handle anything decent for video streaming. And others have pointed out there's far better and very cheap devices that can do exactly that via kodi, plex, upnp, whatever you want. 

Way back when the xbox was relevant XBMC was awesome, I was running it well before there were windows binaries for it. Once HD content started to become the standard XBMC on the xbox was pretty much game over for me. Switched to an apple tv to jailbreak and run xbmc on, then eventually over the years moved to plex. 

 

Basically, I wouldn't even waste my time trying to play videos on an xbox these days. Either buy a cheap android set top or stick, roku, fire tv, apple tv, whatever, and load kodi, plex, embry, pick your poison. (No kodi for ATV)

There is Kodi for ATV's, but it's a pain in the a$$

      pay attention to the folder structure.
      replace both tmdb.xml files to fix the scraper issues you may have encountered.
      this is a welcome fix for anyone that plays media off the hdd (or over the network) with xbmc.
      classic collection for camp now has a stunning amount of synopsis info and fanart....

      I ran a game on CoinOPS and the screen went black .When I restarted the system the system couldn’t see the entire f drive (the section where my emulators were).The rest of the sections function correctly.I tried to ftp and the computer saw the contents once then when I looked again it could no longer see it.The system still says that there is something taking up space on the drive.I was wondering if there was anything I could do?I have a lot of time and effort in this build over 200gb of stuff has been put on there.I am running unleash x and xbmc4 .The system has a 500 gb ide hard drive.The console has been softmodded.

      I knew this was extremely hard for me to get my hands on. I've looked all over the Internet for wide custom banners. I found a few but they were missing quite a bit. I had to get a little bit from this guy a little bit from that guy and made my own bundle. In this ZIP file is not my entire wide set. Just the ones I had very hard time finding I wanted to share this with the group because I made them myself. I could not find any online. In this download you will find borders 4 wide icons for XBMC. Some of the icons are coin-ops. Premium. Hyper vision ninja and ninja gold. Even adults only with neon lights... I hope that somebody can actually use these. This way I did not waste a bunch of time just making it for myself. Please seed this as much as possible and share as much as possible. Thank you very much and I hope that you guys enjoy this I know it's not perfect but I think they turned out pretty good.
