OSMC

Last Update: 2018-06-22 00:49 UTC


OSMC (formerly Raspbmc) is a Debian-based minimal Linux distribution that brings the Kodi media centre software to a Raspberry Pi, Apple TV and Vero devices. This device has an excellent form factor and enough power to handle media playback, making it an ideal component in a low-cost HTPC (Home Theatre Personal Computer) setup, yet delivering the same Kodi experience that can be enjoyed on much more costly platforms.

Popularity (hits per day): 12 months: 111 (88), 6 months: 115 (88), 3 months: 122 (77), 4 weeks: 109 (92), 1 week: 258 (22)

Average visitor rating: 9/10 from 1 review(s).
