Last year for Software Freedom Day I did a presentation on XBMC media centre. I don’t think I ever posted the slides, so here’s the XBMC presentation.

Just a quick note that I have added a new link to the web site with a list of movies we own. The meta-data is not all correct because I used imdb lookups to determine much of the information.For example, some movies have more than 1 DVD or Blueray, but I’ve just indicated 1. Despite looking very nice and having a lot of movies, IMDB actually isn’t that fantastic when it comes to DVD information lookups (scraping). I found DVDEmpire to be a better resource, but only found this over 100 movies in to my collection lookups. More on DVDEmpire and the process in another post.
I’m not terribly fond of the template and will likely change it, but for now it’s a good start.
Yes there’s no telling for taste in movies. Some of these guys were so cheap that I just bought them for something to watch. Now that my time is a lot less I’m not watching as many movies.
This list is really for family and close friends, but feel free to comment (here) otherwise. The movie list isn’t integrated well into the web site, but it might be possible to make the pages behave better.
