I've been able to view YouTube videos on my original Xbox running XBMC and the YouTube script for a long time. Tongue out

ahh, long live the classic Xbox. I still tinker with mine (5) to this day, have installed double ram and the LGE drive upgrade in addition to the usual stuff.
You can deck one out (including console) for about $120 now. Youtube works well on these though the "HQ" mp4 stuff is starting to push the embedded  machines a bit now.

ROFLs . Reminds me of a hack that come out for one of those "be a clever mac programmer" competitions. At least I think it was from out of one of those.

It turned everything on your mac screen so it was rendered from ASCII. In real time.Or was so it was rendered out of static ? *shrugs*
