I just discovered some of the awesome video plugins for the XBox media center. I’ve known they’ve existed for awhile, but I haven’t taken the time to play around with them. Update to the newest version of XBox Media Center and then go here. You’ll find plugins for Revision3, NBC.com, YouTube, CNN, CBS, National Geographic, and more! Check it out!
Another interesting thing to note is that the plugins are Python scripts, so all of the code is open.
