I've been using an xbmc linux box for abit now and really like the iplayer and other flash based feeds, if you look at boxee this uses the same plugins
my idea is we take these xbmc plugins (which are python based) and make a wrapper so we can use them as a media source.
Not sure if the current xine player would playback the media, or like the boxee guys have done we'd need a flash based media player. Their one closed source (AFAIK) since its got some DRM code in there for some of the feeds.
The major plus i see in going down this route is we'd get alot of extra media from only doing one bit of work. if you check out the xbmc plugin lists they have alot of cool plugins.
Not sure if using xbmc or boxee API would be best, feeling xbmc one is the better as more docs and existing exampels to go from.
Who wants to join me in this?
i will need to build a new vmware install and download the 810 source and look at the xbmc api
