[nextpage title=”Add Videos”]We’ve converted our old 1st Generation Apple TV to be an OpenELEC-powered XBMC media center, configured our AppleTV to share our Library through UPnP and installed XBMC on our iPad, iPod and iPhone. Now we are going to add the shared library to the XBMC app on each iOS device.
Fire up the XBMC app on our iOS device and click on videos. There is nothing in our video library yet, so we’ll click Add Videos…
The next screen is our video-source browser:
So we’ll click browse:
[/nextpage][nextpage title=”Browse PnP”]And click on UPnP Devices:
Select our XBMC Media Center UPnP Shared device:
And select the Video Library and then OK on this screen.
[/nextpage][nextpage title=”Add Shared Library”]You should see the path to the UPnP Share and the name for the Media Source. Click OK and you are done.
Now our AppleTV/XBMC UPnP source has been added:
Do the same for our music and select the Music Library when browsing our UPnP Device. Now when we click on videos in our iOS XBMC app we will be browsing our central media library hosted on our 1st Gen AppleTV OpenELEC XBMC Media Center Server and we can play our entire library from any device.
Time to finish the time-consuming process of converting our DVD and BluRay collection to digital and be done with physical media.
