XOT-Uzg TV Streaming on your Xbox

Jan 28, 2010 general

I recently picked up my old, black Xbox from the basement, where it has lived in solitude since I bought my Nintendo Wii. Since it is old and much has happened with the video game indistry since it came out, I don’t game on my XBOX anymore. Let’s look at some media server fun you can have with it instead.

I love my old Xbox, and had a friend chip it a while back, to be able to install additional software on it. Up until now, I’ve used Xbox MediaCenter, but after I upgraded XBMC to the latest version, a friend told me about XOT-Uzg, which is a script that can be used to stream web TV.

After installing it, I noticed how the wonders of the new world appeared before me, as XOT-Uzg let me stream TV shows from all over the world. Now, my 1 year old daugher is watching “In the Night Garden”, streaming from SVT Play on the XBOX. It’s so smooth! If you can, do try it out!

The only problems I have detected so far are:

  • You can not pause for too long, or XOT-Uzg loses its connection.
  • You can not skip forward/back or fast-forward/backward.

Also, of course, make sure to pay for the TV services that you decide to watch. This is just a way to get the content to your Xbox.
