Nice Way to Complement XBMC
#1
Hi guys!

i didn't know where to post this but uhm,
if im in the wrong section, would a MOD please move my thread?
thx Smile

Ok, Long Story short,
of course i use XBMC for media playback
but for web Streaming,
i definitely prefer using my Internet Browser
as nothing beats the real deal Smile

So i found a neat little website that i use as HomePage,
which gives me an App like Grid interface for choosing my
favorite websites!
Here's a screenie of what u can do:

note also that its fully customizable!
backgrounds, icon Links, icon style and more ,,,,

ENJOY --> http://www.myfav.es/ Smile

I was trying to figure out how to get it to launch a local file. I tried things like file:// and various other combinations.

oh that is just great!

Very useful, since we have a touchscreen PC mounted on our wall. This makes it super easy to use. Other solutions haven't been so great.

I also need to launch local files though, I wonder how we can sort that one out.

Instead of launching a web url launch an app on your machine. Use it for more than just a web site favorite list.

Thanks, this is great. Now all they need is an XBMC icon to link you to the forums.
