OSMC

Last Update: 2019-08-09 02:06 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: 145 (62), 6 months: 135 (68), 3 months: 143 (63), 4 weeks: 127 (70), 1 week: 222 (31)

Super minimal and excellent to have both a media server and debian distro that can run services from.

Kinda sucks. Bad repository handling. Inconsistent bluetooth support on raspberry pi. Not horrible but annoyingly bad.

Very fast system. The only problems are generally Kodi issues.
