Hack Adds YouTube To Apple TV

May 22nd, 2007 | By | Category: Digital Video Downloads, Internet TV, Streaming Video

A new plugin for Apple TV called “A Series of Tubes”, now in advanced hacking stage, promises to bring YouTube to Apple’s media set-top box. The YouTube plugin isn’t available yet, but its author “XDog” has published a video that shows how it will work:

The plugin delivers a number of playlists, including spotlighted YouTube videos along with most commented and most-viewed content (week/month) from the popular video-sharing site. Settings also enable users to cache video content for optimal playback.
