Download and Install XBMC

You can get the XBMC here:

http://xbmc.org/download/

1 Windows

Click the Windows-Logo to get the newest stable Windows-Build for your machine. Download the Setup-File and install it. It will also install the needed libraries (DirectX, C++), so it will take a little bit to complete.

2 Mac OS

Download the current Mac-Version by clicking on the OSX-Logo (or – if you run a PPC – on the OSX- PPC-Link beneath the logo) and save the DMG-File to your drive. Install the DMG by clicking on it. Drag XBMC to your application folder as usual. You can delete the DMG-File after installation.

3 Linux

The installation varies between the different distributions of Linux. You may want to take a look at the XBMC-Wiki; you’ll find instructions for the various distributions: HOW-TO:Install XBMC for Linux




After the installation launch your XBMC. You will be presented with the following screen:

You will notice that you cannot do anything right now, the Videos-Section is completely empty and so is everything else. We are going to change that in the next step.
