ok i've been trying to figure this out without having to bother someone on the forum ,but i've given up.
So i've read through the tutorials and watched the video ,but when i go to add source then browse then video plugins i only see the apple trailers plugin.
i've added the plugins into c:\program files\xbmc\plugins\video
did i add them into wrong folder? is there some misstep i took?
sorry for the noob question. any help would be appreciated

You added them to the wrong folder.
Plugins are your data - they thus go in XBMC's application support folder (C:\Documents and Settings\<xplogin>\Application Support\XBMC).
The SVN repo installer installs there for you.
Always read the XBMC online-manual, FAQ and search the forum before posting.
Do not e-mail XBMC-Team members directly asking for support. Read/follow the forum rules.
For troubleshooting and bug reporting please make sure you read this first.
