What's Up With Xbox Media Center

Pr0n + Xbmc

This request cracked me up on the official Xbmc forums. And I'll tell you right now I wouldn't be surprised to see a major porn site see the impact that Xbmc is having and exploit it. It wouldn't be the first time I saw the porn industry grasp onto new technology for their own good. While all the major content distributors were trying to figure out what to do on the web, porn was already established and working on streaming video. They where there first. Reality Tv? You guessed it. Online live video chat? Yep. Realtime multi angle dvds? Yes again.

The pornography industry has always been tech friendly, using any means they could to distribute and reach audiences. They have pushed the envelope and not wavered in their tech stride. Forget about the content for a moment and consider their industry, look at their growth over the last ten years. Its HUGE. And this has everything to do with the technologies they employ. For god sakes, almost every major porn publisher has their entire libraries available to stream and most recent movies in divx format! Hello movie industry? Are you listening?

Consider that a major website contracts a python scripter to make them a secure way for its subscribers to access the site's content via Xbmc. Be it photo spreads or videos. Xbmc can play what they need it to. Punch in your $39.99 a month password and get all that content on your tv in your living room. They would have a perfect way for its users to access their content from the entertainment center. And don't even think about them getting in with other major manufactures' media devices like Microsoft's Media Center or whatever else there is out there. This is free, and they can do whatever they want. And in the end, it would push Xbmc as a platform. :) mmmmm ... me likey.

  • I think it is an interesting idea and pron has driven so much advancement in streaming and such. while i cant see taking advantage of this service myself it would be interesting to see some sort of a pay per view model for xbmc get fleshed out. kind of along the lines of using rss enclosers i have been thinking about as well...just new ways to get content directly to the box. robrob
