Setup Instructions:
In XBMC go to System -> Settings -> Services and enable the following settings:
- Webserver -> Allow control of XBMC via HTTP
- Remote control ->Allow programs of this system to control XBMC
- Remote control -> Allow programs on other systems to control XBMC

- Yellow server icon: Usually the option “Allow programs on other systems to control XBMC” has not been enabled in xbmc. For more info see

- How to force Refresh Music Library: Long-press on the server name and select refresh music

- Music or Video library is empty: In order to see your music and video files you need to enable the library function within XBMC and scan your music and video files to the library.

- By default the application uses a “local” queue for music playback: This has the big advantage of having a very flexible queuing system. However this has some limitations you may not like: You cannot control music playback from more than one remote at a time (which may be good since other family members can't clear your play queue by mistake), skipping songs using a hardware remote control won't work since only one song is in the XBMC queue. The unlocked version has a feature to use the XBMC queue to bypass these limitations.

- Playlists are not visible: In XBMC playlists must be in a special folder. See

- Streaming music / video is not working: The reason may be that no source is created in xbmc (sources.xml). Some xbmc versions (e.g. raspberry pi) allow scraping of media files without adding a source. XBMC will only allow downloading/streaming media which is defined inside a source. In case of doupt ask in the xbmc forum

    Play Local Files.......

    I thought the latest update changed mostly the name but now I see an unwelcome change also: the files are listed in an apparently random order. This doesn't happen on the server itself where they are ordered by name. Kodi changes names for TV series apparently by adding episode names but keeps order. Only the remote messes things up and it is very annoying

    However, the main reason I purchased the unlocker was to stream music from my PC to android device (Moto G). Is this not possible or am I missing it completely? Very great design, though.

    Finally find the app can cast music and video to Kodi.
