Gmnbox WDTV Live Streamer by ObliviousGmn Gmnbox WDTV Live Streamer by ObliviousGmn
This is me trying to be all cool and stuff.
I can't own things I can't customize I feel like it's a must in most cases. 

This is just a theme I created from an Original theme community.wd.com/t5/WD-TV-Them…
I swapped out a lot of stuff, Recreated the icons from scratch and all. It all came out pretty damn well. 

I use this nifty little box to stream movies from my awful computer (Can't play HD or it will explode) So I stream it with Plex.
Allows me to stream all kinds of formats with transcoding it. (MKV and all) Supports DTS to.
It comes with netflix and all that jazz (Is not bad, but it's hella slow)

I bought it for $60 bucks (refurbished, Ebay) so is not a bad buy.

I won't be releasing it to the public though. Cause there are some missing tweaks that I have not gotten around to. Still a pretty stable theme.

That is truly a shame, it looks marvelous.  I own three seperate media boxes.  Boxee Box (bedroom), WDTV Live (on permanent loan to my housemate upstairs) and my own customised XBMC Mini-ITX box (loungeroom and main media server - holds 20tb).  What I love about the WDTV is its tiny form factor, and the apps work better than the Boxee.

I use the WDTV mostly to stream my own content, But I love it. Regardless of the apps. Only YouTube sucks really bad. 
It was either this, Or get a Raspberry Pi and install XBMC. But I didn't want the hassle.

I recently bought a chromecast, To stream Netflix, YouTube all that stuff. Works really well.
But I still use the WDTV for my movies and music. 

I'll probably send you a note with the theme sometime, When I get to polish it up a bit.

You think Youtube sucks on WDTV, it is even worse on the Boxee.  The Boxee has one of the worst search functions I've ever seen.  You are limited 20 videos only.

Thankfully I never bought it! I had my eye on it too lol.
I never used Youtube on WDTV after the first day. I used it on the PS3 or PC.
But recently far best YouTube on a streaming platform I've used is on the chromecast.

I should check it out, currently I've been using the xbmc built in Youtube add-ons.  Which is great, but not very visual.
