Personal Package Archives, or PPAs are software repositories that hold compiled version of software, primarily for Ubuntu and various Ubuntu derivatives (such as Lubuntu, non-Debian versions of Linux Mint, XBMCbuntu, and many others).

The Team XBMC PPA provides the only officially supported pre-compiled binaries for Ubuntu and Ubuntu-based systems.

NOTICE All users should use the Team XBMC PPA instead of the system repositories (or any build that uses external ffmpeg/libav) for proper support.
