Share playlists of videos to Xbox

Cool tip. I still dont know why you need to make a new user for sharing, just use your normal user.. thats silly.

For any other Xbmc fans out there, i run a news and info weblog for Xbmc at and generally have cool stuff to do with xbmc at my normal site. I'm an Os X user so my hacks will always work on our os :)

You can certainly use your normal user. Call me paranoid, but I'd was reluctant to put my username and password in clear text in a XML file. The xbox user I created has only limited access, and i've gutted it's home folder, so it takes up only negligible space. Just a precaution in case something goes wrong, remember, the Xbox is essentially a barebones PC, made by Microsoft, anything can happen ;-)

Also check out XBMC's web server remote, in Settings -> Network -> Servers. Another cool feature.

Btw, very nice weblog!
