If you’ve found yourself wanting to send a song to your XBMC playlist or a start a video playing right away instead of navigating the menus on the XBMC, send2XBMC lets you beam a file or URL from Windows to XBMC.
Part of the reason you wanted a rocking XBMC to begin with was that it let you access all your media in your living room like a more traditional media centre instead of poking around on a computer to play files. Sometimes however you’re at your computer — or you went to your computer to search for something on your media server when pecking away at the search function with your media centre remote wasn’t cutting it — and you want to play the movie, song, or video URL you just found without having to go navigate around the XBMC menu.
If you install send2XBMC you’ll have the send to XBMC options — seen in the screenshot above — to play or queue a file on your XBMC right from your PC. Check out the link below to see how to configure it to work with your XBMC, add the context menu, and send video URLs to your XBMC. Have a favourite media centre app or tool? Let’s hear about it in the comments.
