We are pleased to announce stable version 3.0.1 of the popular media center platform XBMC
for the 1st generation XBOX (now called XBMC4XBOX). A huge amount of work has been put into this, and it features numerous additions and improvements over the last release such as:
- librtmp Support (http://rtmpdump.mplayerhq.hu/) to support many online video streaming services.
- Updates to dvdplayer’s ffmpeg libraries, including some tweaks for additional speed. Performance with h.264 for example is much improved from previous releases thanks to plenty of optimisations upstream.
- Many improvements and bug fixes to the video/music libraries and scrapers.
- Python updated to 2.4.6 as well as improved compatibility for addons intended for mainline XBMC.
- Support for encoding CD’s to the FLAC format.
- We now ship with a customised version of the Confluence skin optimised for the XBOX.
- Bug fixes and updates to many core components such as Samba and libCurl – such as compatibility with Windows 7 shares.
and plenty more!
