Web Browser integrated into XBMC - HTML Layout Engine with a GUI embedded into XBMC? - PolishKid - 2003-10-02 03:12
i would love to see support for webpages. i know this would be hard, but to make it easier, the xbmc team could take an open source browser and incorporate that.

i doubt someone will add a full webbrowser to xbmp/xbmc. i think it would be better to make a seperate app for it.

i agree with hullebulle. a full feature browser isnt likely to be built into xbmc, i personly dont think it would be practical. you have to remember you dont have a keyboard.
hmmm but maybe if you could from your pc/mac add your favorites via a web interface.
but i do have some ideas, not requiring a full featured browser:
isnt possible to get info on updates to xbmc.
like "updated version of xbmc is now available"
ability to get newsfeeds?
and might be far out, and probably not needed at all but
im brainstorming here
some sort of "plugin-system" that allows the browsing of pictures showing in your local cinema? and the plugins are to be built by the people needing it?

webbrowser will never b added 2 xbmc
simply because xbmc is a media center
and not an 'all i can think off is in here' application
so yes a webbrowser for the xbox would b nice
but as a separate application
and no it wont b developed/ported by me

you implement the (soap) webservice support and the community will do the second part. newsfeeds, web pages... and bla bla...
media center, means media from any source.
that's my .0v

hi xbmc-team, i would love to see an build in browser in the xbox media center. so you could browse the internet by the tv and listen to some music. it would also be great if the could be an alternativ between controlling the browser by handcontroller or by keyboard.

just recently, linksbok's, an internet web browser, was just ported to xbox...
at the moment the linksboks web browser only supports pics, text and some simple code...but works very well at what it can do
though it cant support webmail, ssl or other complex tasks
in time, would it hold a place in xbmc?
just a question to chew over...

do you have a link to a site containing information about this project ?

xbmc is a media player, not a web browser.

omg.... if it's an xbox app whats the problem, just launch it from within xbmc...
