XB Stream 1.0 Released! XBox 360 RSS/XML feed reader/aggregator

XB Stream in a nut shell is an RSS/XML feed reader/aggregator that works with the XBox 360 video game console. XB Stream allows you to view xml based content feeds (xml, rss, rdf) on your Xbox 360 video game console; you can also listen to podcasts and blogcasts as well. XB Stream automatically downloads and converts text based content feeds into images that can be viewed from the media>pictures>computer blade and hear audio podcasts/blogcasts from the media>music>computer blade. Content feeds are automatically managed by the software so you are always given fresh feeds, and older feeds are automatically deleted. Audio feeds show up as playlists and can be listened to while playing your favorite games! Below are all of the features of XB Stream:

I just installed it, it's pretty cool checking the xbox news while you're gaming or you can listen to podcasts. Maybe this will evolve into a real web browser, anyways it's a first step.

I just installed it, can't wait to test it out! Thanks for already including some cool podcasts with it! (I had noticed for the past several months our webstats getting hits from "XBStream" and was thinking what the hell is that! lol).

Please don't download, and if you have it delete it. This program was not done right, I has killed xblradio.com and gamerandy.com Please don't get this and if you have it remove it until the problem has been solved. For more info check out xbstreams.com and check there forums
