Earlier this month XBMC rolled out its beta 2 XBMC for Android, and this week has quickly followed up with the release of its XBMC For Android Beta 3 APK.
The new release of XBMC includes a number of fixes to resolve issues that have surfaced since the Beta 2 version was released, together with fixes to isolate some issues that still exist.
XBMC is a free, open source project available in over 30 different languages and the latest update includes the following tweaks and enhancements, and is recommended to run on Google’s Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) operating system or higher.
– Users of Android 4.2 should now be able to install and run XBMC for Android.
– The upgrade path of Windows users has been a little tricky. Users may upgrade to beta and discover the audio no longer works. This is due to a bit of trickiness with the AudioEngine upgrade. For Audiophiles to get the most out of AE, we recommend that you check out the AE Wiki entry.
– For those Windows users who find themselves without sound, the simple fix is to go to System->system->Audio Output and switch WASAPI to DirectSound. Users doing a clean install of XBMC for Windows Beta 3 should have no problem.
– PVR Addons have been included with XBMC for Windows, matching up with most other ports.
– We are still only partially complete on translations for numerous languages, including Romanian, Japanese, Estonian, Bosnian, Serbian, Hindi, and more. If you feel comfortable with one of these languages, but don’t know how to help, feel free to visit our forum thread that explains how to help translate XBMC using Transifex.
UPDATE: Additionally, Transifex is used for translations for addons and skins, so you are always welcome to go back to a more complete language and help with any unfinished addons.
