Having online content in XBMC's library has always been a dream for me. Other media centers are focused on this (Boxee for example), but no other media center is a stable, fast, and sexy as XBMC, so I want to stick with it
XBMC currently has no native support for this. Plugins are your only option. But I hate how slow it is to navigate to and through them. I want all of my media in my library!
So I've been slowly developing a program that lets you add anything to your library.
My goal is that any source that you can add to XBMC (such as upnp, plugins, http, ftp, etc) should be able to be scanned to the library.
In development, I've had success adding content from these sources:
- PlayOn (inludes Netflix/Hulu/CBS/Vevo, and more)
- Bluecop's Hulu plugin
- Yahoo music video's plugin
I've only tested these sources, but in theory, it should work with any source.
If others have considerable interest in this, I will release it to the public once it is stable.
Let me know your thoughts.
