The moment Netflix announced it would be streaming movies, Media Center users the world over started clamoring for a plugin to support the service. One of the first that we saw certainly appeared to get the job done, but integration within the MCE interface seemed somewhat lacking. If that tight integration is what you’ve been looking forward to, then MyNetflix – a beta plugin from Anthony Park – is exactly what you’re looking for (via Chris Lanier).
What’s nice is that the plugin does more than just give you access to the streaming movies. With this plugin, you can also:
- View your queue
- Browse movies by genre
- View your history and recommendations
- Add and Remove movies from your queue
- Move movies to the top of your queue
- And, of course, browse for and watch streaming movies
According to Anthony, initial feedback has been very good with some slight problems experienced here and there (this is a beta release afterall). Amazingly, this software is free, although Anthony will accept donations (which I’d recommend doing).
I intend on testing this plugin later today and will report back here on my personal experience with the plugin.
