I need to access certain overseas content like BBC iPlayer via a SOCKS proxy server. My Linux virtual server in London is up and running and works perfectly with my other computers. I cannot work out how to use SOCKS for xbmc.
It would be best if only xbmc used the proxy but it would not be a deal breaker if all traffic had to go through it.
In spite of a lot of searching on the internet I could not find any clear answers, they all seem to refer to a http proxy which is in the xbmc options. Eg https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/comp.sys.raspberry-pi/kvT4E9LJQwE
