The team over at XBMC have been hard at work since the launch of XBMC for iOS devices such as Apple TV2, and the iphone/ipad. While the application plays many types of video/audio files, it was obvious that this is a work in progress. So let’s take a look at the progress we get from version 2 of XBMC.
- GUI speedup
- Webserver enabled
- RTMP support
- AC3/DTS Audio Dialogs
- Rotating for the iPhone and iPad
- Black and Dim screensavers working
- Bluetooth Support
- SMB shares with Windows Live Essentials should work.
- Sleep timer works
- Add-on updates now working
- Decrypted ISO playback works
- Thumbnail creation fixed
While 1080P video files do play, the Apple TV is not capable of playing 1080P at this time. It is not known whether this is a hardware or software limitation but the folks at XBMC are hard at work. Stay tuned for more details, and also for an upcoming review of ATV Flash (black) by FireCore.
