Who says these are personal opinions. Ask Ned and the site admin...go ahead, I'll wait for you...

EVERY elevation of the type "man," has hitherto been the work of an aristocratic society and so it will always be--a society believing in a long scale of gradations of rank and differences of worth among human beings, and requiring slavery in some form or other...

Well, I guess it's a good thing I didn't say that. But fine, I'll take the troll bait, simply because of how stupid a statement like that is.

I'll let Apple, Google, Amazon, and Roku know that things that play videos are no longer viable if they are not transcoding servers for mobile phones at the same time. My TV doesn't stream to other TVs, but that doesn't mean it stops working as a TV. XBMC is primarily an exit point for your media, because other things exist and work better to share the files themselves. Why would you think this when you yourself have massive NAS storage that shouldn't need to run XBMC just to deliver the content to whatever device you are using, be it an XBMC client or otherwise?

As for as how useful this is, it's neat and can really come in handy, but heaven forbid you stop staring at a tiny screen while you leave the house.

You have this narrow minded view of how something should work, and even when people point out that it already does that you disregard it because it isn't the exact implementation in your head.

This is a program designed for your living room. Every thread you make is about how XBMC doesn't fit your needs. Guess what, it doesn't have to. Different tools for different situations. Different users have different needs. I myself have used transcoding servers with other players while on the go, and my XBMC usage never decreased because of it. Just because someone uses a different player on their phone doesn't mean the living room HTPC suddenly stops existing. I don't even use XBMC on my desktop unless I'm testing or using add-on content, because I don't need a living room interface on my desktop when I'm 2 feet in front of it. I don't stop buying cups because I own a water bottle.

But all of that doesn't matter, because XBMC today works wonderfully with transcoding options that already exist. Even if you were correct, which is laughable, it's not an issue. Our own developers are very interested in adding a built-in transcoding server to XBMC in the future.

So what more is there to say? Why do you continue to try to argue for the supposed sake of XBMC/Kodi's future? No one is saying we shouldn't have this added, even though some might disagree about how important or useful the feature would be. For someone who demands that people be open minded, you sure are quick to reject any viewpoint that isn't your own.

I'm still waiting for actual proof

@Ned Scott,
I am not sure if these stats are for public consumption...but @Ned could answer that question.
As for the rest, just google/bing/yahoo/duckduckgo the terms plex media and xbmc. Click on the news link and see for yourself...

Download stats from the website don't mean much when so many people use openelec (a separate download from a separate site) or *buntu (likewise via ppa).

Or the thousands of Android boxes with copied SSDs that create some serious support headaches on this forum.
