NaviX: XBMC Plugin For AppleTV 2 To Stream Full Movies And TV Shows [video]

Want more content for your AppleTV? Another reason to cut the cable? Over the time we’ve showed you a lot of XBMC plugins for the AppleTV, including IceFilms – which allows you to stream full movies and TV shows via MegaUpload – but today, we got another killer plugin called NaviX.

The Navi-X Media Browser is a “content aggregator” that provides access to all kinds of multimedia content, listed on a public directory of user contributed listings or playlists for playing on your TV or PC! Users can link to content and playback video, audio, pictures, podcasts, text, rss and html on the internet and share it with people around the world in seconds! Create fully customizable playlists with backgrounds, logos and icons as well as link to your favorite multimedia on the internet or browse the already existing directory of publicly available content, in one sleek, fast and unified application!

1. Download this zip file ( make sure to leave it as a .zip file )

2. Jailbreak, and install XBMC… the easiest way is through NitoTV ( free )

3. Once NitoTV is installed, use it to install XBMC. From there, you have to upload the zip file to your AppleTV. Use either an AFC2 app or openSSH to make an SFTP connection to the AppleTV’s IP address (find it in the ATV’s settings), username ‘root’ password ‘alpine’ (which is the default for ATV). The .zip files goes in the/private/var/mobile/Media folder. Once there, launch XBMC on your ATV, go to settings, Addons Manager, and select the Install from zip file (it’s in there somewhere…easy to find).

4. Once you’re done, you’ll find NaviX under Programs.
