I just want to test... I don't want a media center.
I had a bad time trying to build Quake 3 (and after nearly a week of trying to find the right way, when I succeed, one day later, liam publish the binary). I tried to compile omxplayer,
I was unable to do it because the instruction suppose you are much better in compilation than I am (and that you have a build machine? ... I tried directly on the Raspberry Pi, a ton of thing to modify in the makefiles and a ton of time needed). Xbmc is the same thing than omxplayer.
I hope for you that this will change before the release for the kids because at this state, 20 years old is still too young for that.
