04/22/2011 - XBMC - Apple Movie Trailers App for Xbox + Xbox360
Xbox Media Center (XBMC) - Apple Movie Trailers App for Xbox/Xbox 360

This is a video demo of the apple movie trailers app for Xbox Media Center (XBMC). This program is running on the original Xbox, although it can also be run on the Xbox 360 and the PC.

The program has a simple and easy to use interface. Trailers can be sorted in a number of different ways, from genre to studio. You can also do a search by actor. And once you find your video simply push one button to add it to your favorites list.

Other features include video bookmarks and screen shot capture. Trailers can be streamed or downloaded directly into your Xbox harddrive.

Xbox Media Center is a multimedia program originally designed for use with the first Xbox console. Since that time the program has expanded to other platforms. This revolutionary media player also makes a great alternative dash board for the original Xbox. Fans of the program even claim the evolution of XBMC has influenced the design of the modern day Xbox 360 dash.

You can see more interesting videos like this on our original YouTube Channel.

(editor's note: For legal reasons we can't show you the entire movie trailer.)
