XBMC on the BeagleBoard

This video demonstrates the first successful time that XBMC has been able to run on the BeagleBoard. XBMC is short for XBox Media Center. It is a cross-platform freeware media player and is capable of supporting audio, video, playlist, slideshows, and much more. It was formerly used only on the XBox gaming console, but is now available for use with Linux, Mac OS X, and Microsoft Windows operating systems. XBMC is also network-capable.

This video shows the Angstrom Demo running on the BeagleBoard. The Angstrom demo is running Adobe Flash Lite v3.1 Stand Alone Player. Adobe Flash Lite is a software application intended for mobile devices such as phones and iRiver. It allows said device (in this case the BeagleBoard) to view multimedia content , which previously had only been possible on a personal computer.

Android running on the BeagleBoard

This is a video of the Android demo running on the BeagleBoard. I myself have not used Android, but from this video, I can recommend it to users of all types, as it looks user-friendly and efficient for all sorts of task. Also, in the last 15 to 20 seconds, the camera shows the BeagleBoard setup, so if you are new to the BeagleBoared and are confused on how to get it set up, I think that you will find this last part of the video to be extremely helpful.
