This page is a guideline for submitting official feature requests to Team-XBMC. If you are thinking of contributing code to the project, please see XBMC development.

1 HOW-TO submit an official feature request

You can log a NEW feature/function request in the feature-suggestion section of our XBMC Feature Suggestions Forum, (you must first have registered an account on XBMC Community Forum (note that both the username and the password for the login are case-sensitive).

Just make sure that you first remember to search for existing "Feature Requests" before logging a new request! You should take note that we guesstimate that 99% of all new requests XBMC users post have already been requested before so it is imperative that you search thoroughly!

2 When will this and that feature or function be supported by XBMC?

XBMC development is driven by the tasks that are important to the individual developers, none of whom are paid for what they do on the project. If there is a feature that is important to you, the best way to get it implemented is to undertake the task yourself, otherwise you have no rights to demand new things to be implemented and get no guarantees that some specific thing will be prioritized before something else. You may however suggest/request for things and if you ask nicely. A developer might then likes your idea and implement the thing you asked for.
