I was trying to look into how the channels are developed, but hit a roadblock with the DLLs. Digging in to those is not my area. Anyway, I was wondering if the new channel functionality would allow for either a direct Netflix channel that simply interfaces with the regular Netflix session/interface and forwards to a client instead of having to interface with the now closed Netflix API. 

 

Alternatively, would it be possible to create a channel that would allow for: 

  • Install PlayOn server AND client on the same Windows box as MBS
  • Use PlayOn Client to connect to local PlayOn server to access content (including Netflix)
  • Have the channel somehow capture, scrape, whatever the stream from the PlayOn client and forward to a MBS client

 

So, end result would be that you could use an MB3 client (XBMB3C-windows or openelec, web browser, or the sexy new iPad app, etc) to connect to MBS and launch a video/stream from one of the PlayOn channels (to include Netflix), and enjoy that stream in all its HD goodness.

 

Any of you channel developers have any thoughts on such a thing?

Cool. Is that something that is in the works or just on the wish list?

Ok. Thanks. 

 

Also, just saw the other thread in the main Server forum. I'll keep an eye on both of these in the event there's movement and testing is needed.
