Step 6: Launch “XBMC” anytime you’d wish through your “Applications” menu.

If your computer isn’t allowing you to open applications from unknown developers, click on the little “Apple icon” at the top left corner of your screen, followed by “System Preferences” then “Security & Privacy” and then “Unlock” the lock at the lower left corner of the window, then Toggle ON the “Anywhere” option under the “Allow apps downloaded from” field.

Congratulations! You’ve now Installed XBMC for Mac and can use it by opening the XBMC software located in your Applications folder. At this point, you’ll probably want to go ahead and configure the Fusion Easy Addon Installer for XBMC.
