so i have been using XBMC and it kind of sucks with netflix. The popping into the external browser... the searching function... they just plain stink...


I love Windows Media Center's Netflix plugin... it looks awesome..


In any event im looking for software that does 2 tasks... (paid or free)...


1. Lets me stream videos from external source.. (have a fileserver in a datacenter that i store home movies on etc...) I want to be able to stream those home movies over HTTP or hTTPS like i do in XBMC


2. GOod netflix app..


what software (paid or free) should i be using?


Thanks!

assassin 's question:


basically there is a store i have externally on a website..


i want to have a menu itme like "Online Videos"...


then i click on it and it shows the store.. When i click on a movie there it buffers out (5 secs or w.e. it does like on XBMC ) and streams the movie.. As long as the bitrate of the movie is less than Bandwith of the Internet connection then it will stream fine.

Basically you create a .strm file (just a text file) and place the URL in the file. Then put it in a source that Boxee can see and index. It's an ugly way to do this.


Honestly, I think you're looking at WMC for Netflix and XBMC for everything else.
