Had a little longer to play with the Xbox Media Center from my previous post, and this thing just gets cooler and cooler the more I dive into it.
- It has Mplayer built into it so it basically can play any audio/video format without problems including streaming content
- Audio visualization (like WinAMP)
- Organizes music, pictures, video, programs, etc.
- Shows the weather from cities you predefine (pulls from weather.com)
- Plays Internet radio
- Supports numerous network shares for media (Windows/SMB, iTunes, etc.)
- Plays movie trailers (picks them up from Apple’s movie trailer website)
- Supports Python scripting language, so anything it DOESN’T do, you can make it do
Did I mention that this thing is bad ass? Oh yeah, I did.
