Quote:i see alot of people asking stuff like " how do i change audio streams or subtitle?!?!" . when they are told to use the osd they often have no idea what they are doing. so i put together this guide to aim them in the right direction.

the osd is to help you better enjoy your video experience in xbmc. here ill explain what it can do and how.
first off to get to the osd you must start up a video then press y.
to select a button or bring up a tab press the a button. to exit a tab press the x or back button ( do not press b or it will exit the movie completely). to exit osd press either the y button again or the back button.
