Home Theater PC – XBMC – Part 7: Add-ons

One of the most powerful things with XBMC are the add-ons.  Everything from Youtube to various cable channels are available to watch from right within XBMC.  Many add-ons are built into XBMC and others have to be installed manually.

To find add-ons built into XBMC by default, you can either go to the section in question (e.g. videos, music, etc0 and choose the Add-ons option from thos menuse, or you can go to the System menu and choose Add-ons from there.  Specific instructions with screenshots available here.

I’ve only tried a few add-ons, but here is a list of the ones I find extremely useful.
