No matter how much I read about it, I still can't quite figure out exactly what XBMC does?

I know it makes it possible to play files that aren't in iTunes and/or aren't iTunes compatible, but does it allow me to watch video from websites like Hulu, MLB.TV, Vimeo and others?

Hey my friend..

Looks like we are in the same boat..

I joined up at this forum

I just JB'd my ATV2 and looking how to add repo's and plugins to get hulu and cool tv...Hell I don't eve know where to get the http repos to get anything.

but you can do cool stuff once you figure out how to use xbmc..For example I have a ton of Avi files on my 3 tb hardrive..I learned that I can sync my HD through my router, with out converting any files and get them to play on xbmc no problem....

I just don't know how to do it..


Its a lot and i know nothing how to use it but this might help
