Play video files, mpegs, and divx....


Recommended Posts

It would be great to be able to play video files like we are able to play mp3s. Maybe use a transcoder that streams the videos from a computer of media server. I have been dying for a solution and Xbox360 Media Center extender just doesn't cut it. Again, I know its a wish but hey....hope the C4 genies are listening.

MythTV can do this. Check out www.mythtv.com.

Here is a little bit about MythTV

MythTV is a GPL licensed suite of programs that allow you to build the mythical home media convergence

box on your own using Open Source software and operating systems. MythTV is known to work on Linux

and Mac OS X (PowerPC and Intel). It does not run on Windows.

I love MythTV myself. It's what I use here, but it's definitely not for the faint of heart.

The setup is getting better, but it used to require quite a bit of magic to get all the hardware to work together properly.
