XBox Media Center coming to a Mac near you?

XBMCYeah I was just as surprised to read that as you likely are. According to an interview with one of the projects programmers an early demo is already available for download and already supports MP3, OGG, AAC, FLAC, MPC, Project M support for audio visualization and playlists on the audio front and full-screen 1080p pass through with AC3/DTS digital pass through.

Some of their goals for future updates include: Port of Python scripting support, adding official OS X port remote control options/support, AC3/DTS mix-down support and a Port of XBMC Virtual File System features (SMB, FTP, UPNP, etc.). I’m not sure where all this will lead but the project does appear to have the kind of community support a media center front-end needs to be successful, with the Official XBMC OS X user and developer forums receiving over 50,000 page views since mid December of last year; it’s clear we’re not the only ones interested in the project.
