New Vista Media Center HTML Addins/SDK from mcesoft

with one comment

Danee de Kruyff at mcesoft has updated some of his MCE2005 Addins for Vista Media Center. Some of these have been out for a few weeks – but thought it was worth a mention here since Vista is landing shortly.
The products are as follows :
  • System Monitor for Vista MediaCenter: This HTML Addin collects and displays data from SpeedFan (including System/CPU Temperature info) and displays it in TV + Remote friendly format.
  • RocketBoom for Vista MediaCenter : This HTML Addin displays the latest list of VideoBlogs from Rocketboom and allows you to stream them to Vista Media Center.
  • WebMedia for Vista MediaCenter : This HTML Addin allows you browse and watch/listen to your favorite Internet based Radio Stations and TV stations.

Danee has also just released the Vista HTML SDK for developers wishing to make HTML addins for Vista (or upgrade their existing MCE2005 HTML addins) – which retains the visual look of the new Vista UI. This SDK goes well beyond the HTML Templates offered by the MCE SDK – and saves you the effort of re-inventing the wheel for HTML Addins (a common complaint from developers).  Great work Danee!.

Please visit the mcesoft website to download these free addins.

Hopefully Danee will also look at using MCPL or WPF for his future addins. (and if his SDK was upgraded for MCML – this would also be welcomed by many developers too)..
