XBMC on Mir

As part of my GSoC project to make XBMC work on newer linux display systems, I also wrote a backend to make it render on the Mir display server too. This was actually quite straightforward, and took about the same amount of time to get to same point of completeness as it did for Wayland support.  There’s no mouse or keyboard input support yet, but only because I haven’t had the time to implement it yet. Should be done in a few days.

You can find it at git://github.com/smspillaz/xbmc.git mir-gsoc-1.

Incidentally, I think this is the first non-toolkit non-demo Mir client out there.

  1. Well done!
    Note that if you’ve some more free time (yes, I like dreaming 🙂 ), Cairo-Dock needs to be ported to run on Wayland and Mir displays servers too 😀

  2. Great work Sam, It is always nice to have a choice, other projects stick with Wayland because they are not pleased with the way canonical created Mir but everybody is saying with opensource you have a choice and that is what Canonical is giving us. Thank you for giving us the choice, and thank you Team XBMC for the great software!!
