XBMC4Xbox 3.2.1 released

February 16th, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

Development of the 3.3 release is still ongoing, but in the meantime, here is a small update to 3.2 that includes a few fixes and improvements, including:

  • Thumbnail scaling calculations are improved to correct the low-res issue with wide icons.
  • Included a modern new default web interface from Sander (called XBMC Reloaded).
  • The SVN Repo installer has been replaced with the Addons4Xbox installer, that is able to install addons designed for XBMC.

The SVN Repo installer has become little use as most of the scripts and plugins it references are no longer maintained. To fix this Temhil created an Addons4Xbox installer that allowed installation of addons from XBMC addon repositories. This doesn’t completely solve the problem though, as due to our old python version, and differences in XBMC4Xbox from XBMC many of them don’t work out of the box. To remedy this, we have our own repository that contains fixed up versions of many of the most popular addons. You can see details of which have been changed and the current working status atΒ  https://www.xbmc4xbox.org.uk/addons/.

The Addons4Xbox installer still has some issues, and could be improved, but it’s works well as a temporary solution.

Thanks to Skatulskijean, Kozz, XPhazer, Sander and Temhil and everyone else who has helped.

    I know it’s been a while since I upgraded XBMC therefore I upgraded to the new XBMC4XBOX and ran into a problem playing AVI videos (see my guide) that previously worked under XBMC distros. I’m not 100% positive on what the problem is, but I’ve noticed the limit of cache you can allot for video playback has been drastically decreased from 16MB to 4MB (along with the rest of the caches) and also mplayer has been updated.

    Here is what I had to write in my guide.

    “XBMC4XBOX v3.0.1 and above have had some changes done to their video player engine (mplayer) and also reduced the amount of RAM you can allot to “caching” therefore videos encoded with 3,666Kb p/s during high movement will severely lag. This can be avoided
    by using XBMC-9.04 or other versions that allow you to increase the cache for proper playback. I hope this issue can be remedied in future versions.”

    Great release, thank you very much! I really like the new web interface & the addon installer. Still, many addons don’t work though (eg. youtube). Anyway, keep up the good work!

    I have been out of the xbox game for awhile, but I have a modded xbox. How do I get this to be my new default dash? I do not see a .xbe file…? Sorry for the noob question guys, but I am extremely excited to watch icefilms and 1channel! Thanks

    @Kyle
    Um, are you sure downloaded the binary build somewhere? Because on this page, you’ll only find the sources…

    no. confluence lite will be part of the 3.3 release.

    Did this build fix the .mp4 playback that was non issue in older versions?

    If it, will 3.3?

      I am not aware of any playback issues. Perhaps you can post on the forum with more info.

    I also have problems with playback that wasn’t on previous release. :(

    Then open a forum topic supplying a debug log and you will get help.
