XBMC is a free and open source media player and entertainment center, it’s an extremely useful tool, you can watch your downloaded movies or TV series and organize it in a beautiful interface that will let you search it watching the DVD cover and also the information about it, like the cast info of your favorite movie or HD poster that XBMC will get automatically from the web.
Another great thing about XBMC is the capability of customize everything, if you don´t like the way it looks, you can download a new skin and make it more “you”. Supporting an almost endless range of remote controls, and combined with its beautiful interface and powerful skinning engine this is the software that the phrase “most have” it´s mean to be.
