So I finally JB my AppleTV 2G and got XBMC installed. I also figured out how to SSH into it and where to load BlueCop addons. Great, all good. But now I want to find more addons and that is appearing to be a bit difficult.

Anyone have any suggestions? All night last night I was looking for ZDF Mediathek addon so my wife could watch her German shows. I'd like to find more German content and content for myself. But it all appears to be anything but organized. I couldn't find a good site that showed the most recent version of an addon. I also kept finding lists of code that I had really no idea what to do with unless I could find a download as zip file.

What I found so far:

This appears really hard to sort and organize what I'm looking for on their site. However there appears to be an installer to do this directly from the XBMC UI itself? It doesn't appear too clear.

Some of these links are good, except they link to forums with dozens of pages and it's difficult to find where the latest version is and on which page. Also searching through the forums seems difficult.

There's a couple big ones on the downloads, but that's it. I did find a lot of stuff when searching for Mediathek, but I didn't even know where to begin with this one.


So what does everyone else do when searching for addons? What are your methods or sources to make sure you are find the most current and stable addon for what you're looking for?

Also, as a secondary question, how do you browse some of this content? I tried the Hulu addon, and the content was just so much and so difficult and time consuming to browse, I gave up and figured I needed to look on the website of Hulu first to decide what I wanted to watch from what's available.
