QtMediaHub is a reference implementation of XBMC intended to showcase the power and convenience of QML. It is as a demo for use at Qt related events.
It is intended for research and to convey best practices when using Qt/QML.
- Completely skinnable – QtMediaHub is completely written in Qt Quick½ and is thus completely skinnable. The core code is a C++ based media engine (aka runtime) that provides various platform and board dependent services. The QML User interface expose functionality at their discretion.
- Support Qt4 and Qt5 (Qt4 implies QtQuick1 and Qt5 implies QtQuick2).
- Controllable using a N9 remote control application. Device discovery is done through ZeroConf.
- Media streaming to stream content from your set top box to another device
- Packaged skins using a custom qar format
- Allows custom media integration alongside any built-in media integration of Qt Mobility.
We have skins targeted for specific graphic engines.

You can get the latest source code from gitorious https://gitorious.org/qtmediahub [gitorious.org].
Note that we are in the process of moving the git repositories to the qt-project.org.
Building QtMediaHub once you have a functional Qt4 or Qt5 for your target is trivial.
- qmake (for install prefix use ‘qmake PREFIX=/usr/’, default PREFIX is /usr/local)
- ./bin/qtmediahub (on mac use ./bin/qtmediahub-launcher)
The developers meet at #qtmediahub on freenode.
