XBMC Launcher

XBMC Launcher


XBMC Launcher is a helper app that allows you to set XBMC/Kodi as your launcher without modifying the XBMC/Kodi app. Should work with any version as long as the main activity name in the XBMC/Kodi app remains the same.

Currently supported XBMC/Kodi variants:

- Kodi (Official)
- XBMC (Official)
- MINIX XBMC
- Beyond XBMC
- Plex
- OUYA XBMC
- SPMC
- Wasser XBMC
- TVMC
- VidOn XBMC

Requires: XBMC for Android (http://xbmc.org/download/) or one of the supported Kodi/XBMC variants

Source code: https://github.com/blunden/XBMCLauncher

NOTE: Other apps can be launched from the Programs option on XBMC's main menu.

Recent changes:
Version 2.2:
- Add support for TVMC 14.2 and later.

Version 2.1:
- Add a shortcut to Android's main settings inside XBMC Launcher Settings (works on Android and Android TV) as it doesn't show up as a launchable app inside Kodi/XBMC.

Almost perfect There's a small issue I'm having. It runs it on boot, as it should. But when I play any media the sound plays through the device and not TV (I have an HDMI running to my TV from my tablet, and I'm using my tablet as a kodi box.) I would love help with this and would give you information you need. This is a gift for my fiance, so this one flaw is a BIG one. Thank you, and have a wonderful day/night.

Just bought a MyGica media player today and its default launcher is an impossible-to-configure eyesore. Since I plan to just run XMBC 95% of the time anyway...this was a nice find. Only thing it's missing is a way to run the occasional other app for that 5% when I do want to (edit: found it).

blows out custom settings installed this and it screwed up my settings. If you want to keep settings don't install this.
