OSMC (Open Source Media Center) is a free and open source media player based on Linux and founded in 2014 that lets you play back media from your local network, attached storage and the Internet. OSMC is the leading media center in terms of feature set and community and is based on the Kodi project.
OSMC is the successor of Raspbmc and this is why it’s a great upgrade:
* Improved update system — we’ve made our update system much more reliable as well as make it possible to properly schedule and configure update behavior.
* A faster experience: They’ve built OSMC right from the ground up to ensure it’s faster and more stable than Raspbmc ever was.
* An App Store: Their applications store lets you install new features and packages right from your remote. This makes your OSMC system expansive, but it means they don’t ship features people might not need. This ensures OSMC doesn’t get bloated but still gets to expand its feature set.
* It’s cross-platform: OSMC already runs on a variety of different devices and by the end of the year it will run on even more.
We at AppsForMyPC have tested and used OSMC and it worked pretty smoothly 🙂 🙂
