I purchased Assassins Guide and I have used it to help me setup my HTPC. I was able to successfully install the Netflix plug in. I do not use HULU so I did not install that. I tried to install the ESPN plugin but I have been unsuccessful with that one. I also did not have great success with a weather plug in. Forwhatever the reason it could never update to give me the current weather it was stuck in N/A.

So I was curious as to what are some of the top rated plugins for WMC and if the board could provide the download link along with the instructions.

Best

MediaBrowser
MacroTube (Includes YouTube and other video providors)
PLEX

The ESPN plugin was announced to be (permanently?) broken a few months ago as ESPN is not updating it or something like that.

Excellent. I downloaded it, but youtube vidoes won't play, I'm guessing that it is a codec issue. Any suggestions

I use the DTB Addin for DVRMS Toolbox so I can use Comskip and skip commercials :-)

I also have the XBMC plugin so I can switch between WMC and XBMC (WAF appreciation).

If you don't use Media Browser or My Movies - it gives you a library akin to the native movie library but for TV shows/series - if u visit the link I posted U'll see screenshots of how it works. Also it adds 2 different plugins - YouTube - where you can search and watch videos and add channels or specific videos to your YouTube library (doesn't support adding your actual youtube account though). And also a Podcast library where you can subscribe to podcasts via rss. As I stated pics are in the link I posted and give you a general idea of how it works/looks.

Do you have any idea if it accepts rss feeds made using Yahoo Pipes?
