Trying the New Version of Yougle Vista for Media Center

March 26, 2008

I tried out version 0.4.0c of Yougle for Windows Media Center this evening. Because I only use Media Center extenders, I was interested to see if this version had improved extender support.

The short answer is "yes", but only if you are interested in Microsoft Soapbox videos. Aside from a few awkward aesthetic user interface issues, this new version of Yougle played well with extenders. It allows for a nice selection of options for selecting videos and doesn’t present videos that can’t be played on the extender.

The real problem, is the selection of videos on Soapbox. Simply put: it’s no YouTube. The most popular videos were almost exclusively of animals and the most highly rated videos were of people’s family events. Not really items of general interest!

It will be nice if and when this works with YouTube (and other services) using an extender.
