Hi guys,

I made an extension that sends a youtube video to the XBMC with a click of a button. Useful while using a laptop to show all the good stuff from youtube in the big screen.

I thought you guys would like to try it.

Cheers

Nice, works perfectly Smile

I'm a Chrome user, and this is really useful.

Something like this would be even more useful for me if I could also do this from my phone (Android) or iPad.

I know the browsers there don't offer the extensibility of Chrome on the desktop. Would it at all be possible to get something like this on those platforms maybe through the use of a bookmarklet or something?

Thanks for sharing Smile

Have you tried airplay on the ipad? I managed to get airplay running on my XBMC Live system and most videos work.

Love this idea! Unfortunately it's not working for me on Chrome 13.0.782.41 - Mac OS X 10.6.8

Pressing the TubeToTV button sends the video black in chrome. Any log file I can post up to find out more information?

I'd like the ability to add a Hostname rather than just an IP Address as mine does end to change sometimes on rebooting.

Also though, I too am having problems sending to the IP Address. Does it need the Port settings too? Youtube goes black, XBMC does nothing.

Yeah.

ZeroConf and IPv6... no more memorizing crap.

Code:
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON `xbmc_%`.* TO 'xbmc'@'%';

I'll try to get my head around it, haven't had a chance to test it on a Mac yet.

Will check on a different solution than just entering the IP.
You only need to enter the IP, not the port and you need to enable "Allow of control of XBMC via HTTP" on your media center.

I must admit though that it is only working on the standard port "80".

That might be the cause of the issues after all, let me see if I can fix it rather soon than later, have to go to work first though. Wink

my only request would be to allow multiple instances of xbmc, since i'm sure many of us have more than one xbmc box running in our homes.

You are right, it has to be written like:
Code:
127.0.0.1:8080
SANDMAC-PC:8080

I will look into the other request and see what I can do about it.
