Transparency! on iPad / iPhone - ronie - 2011-01-22 16:30

since xbmc is now available for iPad and iPhone users, i'm trying to find out if T! works on those devices.

i don't have any of these myself, so depend on you to test it.

first thing you need to do is enable 'touchscreen support' in skin settings.
(Settings > Skin Settings > General > Enable touchscreen mode)
this will add a few buttons to the skin: back, close and player controls.


please let me know if there's anything missing.

hey mate,

it works on iPhone but I cant comment on usability, my fingers are too fat Smile

one thing to note is that it needs SVN version of T! as .xbt wont do it on iOS

Is there a development/disscussion thread anywhere on 'XBMC for ipad/iphone'? Are they, more specifically iPad, powerful enough? I don't even own one just curious, Thx...

my work on it was minimal, all credit to davilla and gimli

forum will be another story to sort out Smile, but we will handle it as we go along.

so the ATV2 does handle .xbt files, correct?

Using it on my ipad now and am pretty impressed. Even 1080p movies are working over my wireless g network with just a few buffering issues. Can't give any definitive comment on skin performance yet as I am still loading them and updating the library...

This from my iPhone 4

I used svn but and tried the same for the theme but that did not work either in xbt or folder.
I don't know for the iPad, because I de-jailbroke it last week Sad but like Amet says, those buttons on the iPhone are awfully small.
I am sure you notice the missing side panel for Settings

I'm curious, if the ATV2 does not have any storage, where do you put XBMC?

Same visual behavior on the iPad but navigation is pretty easy once you get used to the quirks. Double tap for context menu, swipe left for back, etc.

So what happens if there is a power failure, do you have to re-jailbreak and reinstall xbmc?

I have just finished checking and it seems that .xbt are fine though. sorry for the false alarm

Hi Amet, a bit off topic maybe but my first gen AppleTV just died, would you recommend the ATV2 or something else?
