XBMC Launcher

XBMC Launcher


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

Currently supported XBMC variants:

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

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.

Version 1.0 mistakenly supported Android versions lower than XBMC does. For those who sent in bug reports anyway, I'm sorry for the inconvenience.

Recent changes:
Version 1.7:
- Use Material Design when running on Android 5.0

Version 1.6:
- Adds support for TVMC

Version 1.5:
- Adds support for Kodi

Just what I needed I bought a cheap cs918 system for use as a Kodi media center, and just hated the way it looked and worked. I put on a fresh Kodi 14 beta and installed xbmclauncher as the default. Wow! Not only does Kodi launch at startup, but I can access/launch any Android apps from the kodi programs menu. I linked the Android Netflix app into my Kodi menu - Bam, age old xbmc/netflix integration problem solved! I'd recommend this for any Android based htpc, seriously - TRY THIS APP! .

Worked well for a bit This app worked well on first attempt , but now each time i switch my x8-h on i have to manually clear defaults in the app manager then re boot the device to get video playback. otherwise i get sound only which renders it useless, if this could be fixed i'd give it 5★
