What's Up With Xbox Media Center

New Screensaver API

A new screensaver interface and API has been commited to CVS. It will allow users to drop .xbs (Xbox screensaver) files into a new folder designated for screen savers. Currently, screensavers are embedded into the Xbmc xbe file and aren't available to users. So we are stuck with what is compiled INTO the .xbe. Now, it will work like visualizations, allowing users to add and remove screensavers specifically made for Xbmc at will. This should do a good job in creating a nice screensaver scene for Xbmc.


  • Like your site alot, keep up the good work.
    The pyro screensaver is a nice add-on for those of us that feels matrix is getting old.... like after the first movie :)

  • I can't figure out how to make a screensaver. Could someone create an in-depth tutorial? If one is made, post about it at Syboard.net, because I go there a lot.
