XBMC With VDPAU and iPlayer

There's an interesting article on the How to do something differently... blog about getting VDPAU working with iPlayer under Linux with the SVN build of XBMC. I'll be sure to look into it some more when I install Ubuntu onto my Revo.

Streaming HD Video to Xbox 360

I've been experimenting with encoding HD videos using EncodeHD and then streaming them to an Xbox 360 via TwonkyVision from my QNAP TS-101. The QNAP TS-101 is a small NAS device with 64mb RAM so I think its a safe assumption that no transcoding is being done.

I first took a sample video from here and then encoded it using the various presets. The files were then copied to the QNAP, and then accessed from "Video Library" on the 360 (note: not via the Media Center Extender).
