XBMC is an award winning media center for OS X. The ultimate High Definition hub for all your media, XBMC is easy to use, looks slick, and has a large helpful community.

Note: To install XBMC on OS X 10.9 Mavericks, you need to right-click the application after it's been installed and select "Open" from the list (this need only be done once). Alternatively, you can go to System Preferences -> Security & Privacy -> General. From there, unlock the lock at the bottom of the window and "Allow apps downloaded from: Anywhere." This second method is the preferred method, as you will no longer be more...

Even if I would like to agree, that this free media center is not so bad, I "have to" give low stars.

I do not know if everybody else here just have video files (like "mov", "avi" or "mkv"), but more...

Ugh. What a lousy interface. Typical of a "let's try to port it to Mac OS" mindset. Now I understand why; this was originally developed for the XBox. Figures.
I installed this on a NAS box and chose a couple different themes to see if one were better than the other. They all stunk. There is no sense of elegance, intuitiveness or naturalness in the presentation or navigation. I immediately uninstalled and prefer navigating via the Finder, which is horrible itself, but even so, infinitely preferable to XBMC.

For me this application is weird.

I lost my mouse and had to resort to using the arrow keys to navigate my way round and then i was lock on some settings page and could not get back and had to resort to QUIT.

This application may be great if you are a gamer or this generation of device users using their thumb to navigate but not for a simple point and click Mac Guy here.

Try "amber". I like the reduced style. But you can easily download and try other skins from within XBMC (settings > appearance > skins > get more).

I've used XBMC since Apple dropped FrontRow back in 2011. I tried Plex and others, but XBMC was the only one that I found easy to setup and get using right away. I use XBMC pretty much for my movie and TV show collections and it handles them very well. The kids find it easy to use, even those that house sit for us find it a breeze to master.

The new Gotham v13 came out and update was painless and smooth. Best of all it solved a few issues I'd had.

Can't beat the price, and the features are just what I need.

Most un-Mac-like. No menu bar. Awkward navigation. Looks like a Windoze app ported to OS X. Has its uses but severely lacking in usability. Can't complain too much, because it's free.

You don't get the purpose of XBMC... It is NOT MPlayer replacement...

It might be helpful if you would "explain" your statements.

One example: "No menu bar": the idea of a media center is to display all available content in the main screen, and not in any menu bar. If you are missing a "menu bar": what would you like to see / control there?

And if you say "Most un-Mac-like": compared with which other media center? Or do you compare it with a media player (like Marek suggested) ? Then: you did not get the purpose.

Yes, the style is "Windoze" like: I do not like the ".." do move one level up, too. But how would you implement this?

But yes: you can complain. Even it is free. Because if you do not pay, but it cost you many hours, then it might be an idea to pay - and spend less time.

Huh? It's not really designed to have a menu bar in the first place. XBMC is a cross platform home theater software package that is designed to run on Mac, Windows, Linux, Raspberry Pi, and others. This is a home theater software, it's not something you really will run on your mac on your desk.
