WMC Alternative

Anyone have any suggestions for a better option for media streaming than Windows Media Center??? I have WMC on my computer, and stream to my XBox 360...There's nothing wrong with WMC, per se, it's just really plain, and bland-looking...Am I missing something with it? Should I consider a different program? :-k

I'm assuming you're using the Xbox 360 as extender. If so, I don't think you've got other options aside from WMC. That said, I think plug-ins would probably work.

The following is not an alternative to WMC but an add-on:
Media Browser

Thank you for the suggestion! Unfortunately, I can't get the plug-in to work (it crashes after 10-15 seconds of being open). I tried the suggestions in their troubleshooting guides, but to no avail and uninstalled and reinstalled 3 times...oh well, think i'll put one of my spare external USB hard drives to use, and load it with media for the XBox. Thank you though for idea! :)
