Release Notes

XBMC Link - Let MC update your XBMC Library

Fixes in place, Enjoy the XBMC Link function

Well, Phil's been busy in the background, and come up with a Great new feature for Media Companion.

Currently only implemented for movies. Once we're happy that's working with no issues, we'll extend the functionality to include TV shows. All the help for this is build into the application. Go to General Preferences - XBMC Link for details.

Help us make it better

* Currently only tested on local and remote Windows XBMC installations. We would be interested in hearing your experiences on non-Windows XBMC installations, whether successful or not. So hopefully we can get it working on all platforms

Reviews for this release

The new features on this particular release really made this a headliner for me - the new batch script capabilities was the final step to fully automating my home media server. This program just keeps getting better. Well done to everyone at the media companion team - you guys are legendary! :)
