How to configure XBMC to stream video/music to ipad…

   

Ok here we go… I know lot of people are giving Media Centers a real thought cause of all the gadgets lying around their house. May be u want to check out a cooking video in your kitchen, watch a podcast or two while you answer nature’s call or just check out a video without sitting down and browsing through your collection on your PC/MAC. Well this “How to” will help you achieve all that and more. For this tutorial I will use XBMC on my Mac to stream the content to my ipad running the XBMC IOS app ( find via Cydia: Links below).

Things You need.

Hardware:

  • A wireless router that supports UPnP ( “Universal plug & play” which most routers support these day).
  • A PC/MAC to host the media center application ( if you are rich- which I am not- you could always go get a Media center box with Wifi like Boxee or something).
  • A device to stream content to (duhhhhh… obviously).

Software:

  • Any Media Center application will do. Try XBMC if you haven’t. Its free and looks cool too.
  • You will also need the XBMC app for your iDevice.

Steps:

  1. Install the Media Center application on your computer.
  2. Now you need to add your content to the media center library. Start the application & go to Video>File>Add Source. Click the Browse button and select the directory where your videos are stored. Click ok. You can use the Add button to add more sources. Keep clicking Ok until you are back to the main menu.
  3. Now you can go back to videos and check if your content folder has been added. Right click the folder and select “Set Content from the menu. Select the type of content. Make sure the “Run automated Scan” & “Scan Recursively” buttons are pressed.
  4. Good work your content is now added or being added to the library. You can browse the content folder and assign info to the various video if you like.
  5. You can turn on Library Mode from the Left popup menu to enjoy a visual spread of your content.
  6. Repeat the same for your music collection.
  7. With all your content added go to the “System” Tab on the main screen.
  8. Go to “Network” tab inside System and press the “Share video and music libraries through UPnP. You are all done on the Computer part.
  9. Now install the XBMC app on your iDevice via Cydia( or whatever other way you use). If you can’t find Cydia on your device you are a fool cause Cydia only comes with jailbreak ( Completely legal if you are wondering).
  10. After you are done. Connect your device to the same network as your computer(Media Center). Fire up the XBMC app.
  11. Go to Videos>Add source. Click Browse and select “UPnP Devices”.
  12. You should see your Media sever along with its IP( Don’t see it: Make sure your computer is connected to your wifi and the application is running on it).
  13. Now its just a matter of Browsing to your content and selecting the proper folders where all your dirty (mostly illegal ) videos are stored.
  14. Enjoy… Keep in mind the app is a battery drainer.

How to choose between Flickr & Picasa…

Need to host & share images ? Can’t decide which service to use ? Look no further…

Ok I might be a little partial towards Flickr because I have been using it for over a year with a fair deal of satisfaction. Still I will try to layout for you the hard facts and let you decide.

Flickr by yahoo

Fans of YAHOO ( if they exist) will surely go for this ( most people don’t know this service is by YAHOO).

  • Flickr makes it easy to organize your photos into different sets, tag them by topic or geographical location and order prints.
  • As a free member you can upload 100MB worth of pictures a month.
  • Monthly subscription is $2 and yearly subscription is $24.95 (as of May 2011) for unlimited upload.
  • Supports uploading videos.
  • Some user statistics
  • Add-Free surfing.

Picasa by google

Any one who has used a PC would have used the Picasa desktop app for organizing photos & do a little bit of editing. Mac users believe me its as great as iPhoto (maybe even better). But I feel differently about the cloud storage that they provide. Its got google backing it so space shouldn’t have been an issue but surprisingly it is. Most of us have gmail accounts with over 5GB or more of useless space lying around so why does google only offer 1GB of free space for non-paid picasa members is beyond me. Here’s a break up of all the features ( and also the ones that are missing).

  • 1GB for free loader( like me).
  • $5 for 20 GB for a year & $20 for 80 GB  (Please go see the rest of the price listings yourselves).
  • Good user interface (Simpler).
  • No integration with iPhoto.
  • No good apps for iOS devices(yet).
  • No option for Unlimited Storage ( for those busy little photoshoppers while others might never need this).
  • Add free (mostly).

So u decide…

How to use Home share on your iDevice

I was looking for a way to stream content (mainly video) from my Mac to my ipad. I mainly use VLC as my primary video player so when I found out there was an app named VLC Streamer I was over joyed and thought all my streamig problems would end. Alas! the buffering just took too damn long. The app gives you lots of options (bit rate & what not) and you don’t have to convert videos to iTunes specific format but there is considerable lag even for non HD videos ( I wasn’t brave enough to try HD videos). So when I read about Home Share I was eager to try it. I have been told that its been around since iTunes 9 but I never got around to use it. This post helps you set up Home Share on you iTunes(Mac/PC) which acts as the source and on your iDevice.

Make sure both devices are connected to the same WiFi connection.

 iTunes 10.2 or later Setup (PC/Mac)

  • Start up iTunes & go to the Advanced menu.
  • Turn on Home Sharing
  • Enter your Apple ID credentials.

 iDevice Setup (iPad/iPhone/iPod with iOs 4.3)

  • Go to Settings>iPod.
  • Under the Home Sharing section enter your Apple ID credentials.

Thats all there is to it.

Now to access the content simply go to the iPod app and select the library you want to connect to.

Enjoy…
