You’ve finally got your hands on the Raspberry Pi, but now need to know how to Install XBMC to that sweet little thing. It’s not very difficult, but we’d have to say that the Raspberry Pi isn’t the most simple solution to integrate for end users, although anyone with some technical aptitude shouldn’t have too much trouble using their Raspberry Pi after following our instructions.

how to install easy add ons
HOT TIP: Try the new XBMC HUB Wizard XBMC Addon to fully custom configure your XBMC setup!

The process of installing addons to your XBMC setup is now easier than ever using Fusion, the Easy Addon Installer for XBMC. No longer will you need to download and upload addon files or anything else of the sort. You’ll now be able to add as many addons as you’d like directly from your television screen, no technical knowledge required. The Fusion Installer will be constantly updated, so once you’ve added it to your XBMC, you’ll be able to get the latest addon repositories on the fly as they are released.

EASILY INSTALL NEW ADDONS USING FUSION SERVER BASED INSTALLER FOR XBMC

Step 1: Launch XBMC Software.

Step 14: Browse through the Fusion folder and select whichever files you want to install, one by one, and they’ll be instantly available within your XBMC installation.

Step 15: You’ll now need to click a “Get Add-ons” button.

Step 16: Choose the repository that was just installed from the ZIP file. In this case, we’re using “Bstrdsmkr’s Repository” as an example.

Step 17: Select the “Video Add-ons” option.

Step 18: Click the name of the plugin you wish to enable. We’re using the “1Channel plugin” for this one.

Step 19: Choose “Install” on the left side to enable the selected video addon.

Step 20: Return to the main menu, and go into the category which your addon was installed to (most likely either VIDEOS, MUSIC or PROGRAMS). In this case, we installed a Video Addon, so it’ll be in “Add-ons” under the “VIDEOS” menu. You’ll now be able to access and use the addon at your convenience.


Congratulations! You can now return to the Fusion Installer by going to the “Install from zip file” function at anytime in the future! Please note that it’s highly recommended that Apple TV and iOS users copy over our custom Advanced Settings XML File before continuing, which will substantially improve functionality. Special thanks to tuxen and RogerThis for their contribution towards to the Fusion Installer.
