Hello every xbmc beginners,

Today I will show you how to add video sources to xbmc, and there are 3 cases.


1.    Add sources from Nas

If you have a Nas and want to add videos from it, you can do as below.

Go to “system”->”files”->”add videos”, then you will see this picture.

After adding, you can set the content. Choose “Movies” and click “OK”, then the scraper can get all the posters and information of the movies you have added, and in the menu there will appear a Movie item.

2.Add video source from external disk

The beginning operation is same with adding video source from Nas. And when you click “browse” to choose the movies, you can just choose the name of your external disk.
