Hi,

 

I'm a recent convert from Plex, mainly due to the open source nature of MediaBrowser. I was very happy to see a Mac version of MB Server, and would be even happier to learn if there are any plans for a Mac OSX version of the MB Theatre as well?

 

In our house we use a Mac Mini as a server, and various other Mac Minis as set top boxes / Home Theaters, and would be absolutely delighted to be able to continue using these with MediaBrowser.

 

Is there any interest besides me for a Mac version of the MB Theatre? 

 

Is anyone already working on this?

 

Would it be an incentive with a kickstarter or similar campaign for it?

 

Unfortunately I have zero programming skills, but apart from that I'd like to contribute any way I can. 

 

As you can see I'm very new here, so any pointers or insights would of course be greatly appreciated - thanks again for a great media solution, and for making it open source!

 

 -Florux

Sadly, MBT is built using WPF which is specific to Windows at this point. From what I have seen, the Kodi (formerly XBMC) addon has had a TON of development so you could go the Kodi route without much difficulty in getting it running. There are even some skins built specifically for the Kodi addon.

Thanks - just got the Kodi client set up and it's really smooth! 

A few minor quirks to smoothen out, but all in all a very sweet solution. This is clearly my new favourite setup!

 

Thanks much!

No problem.  Glad you are enjoying the setup. ;)
