Do we even have EANs/UPCs in the XBMC database? Otherwise this would be useless anyway.

@freezy: Yeah, It would require some sort of search.
I found a very cool feature in Google shopper. It can search on EAN codes or even on the cover of your DVD/CD. Hold the phone in front of your DVD/CD and it will take a picture of your cover and match it with a database. Don't know if this could be to any help.
Even better would be if it could match it with covers from the phone's database somehow. No internet connection would require then.

But this isnt really standardized so it would be difficult to parse. Not sure how many of you have heard of it but there is a program that will scan barcodes and find torrents of those products for the android.
