    Any free osx programs that rivals Microsoft media center add-ons?
    Hello,

    On my old media center pc, I had some media center plugins that allowed me to interact with google video, and also watch internet tv.

    I find with my new macbook, there doesn't seem to be any features that compare to media center or anything really that will allow me to watch online television or satellite.

    Does any know any reliable software that can be used to accomplished? I'd prefer something compatible with leopard, and is trustworthy so I don't have to worry about malware.

    Thank you in advance.

    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    I had joost for awhile, but the content is very limited. Although I do love the interface and it's simplicity.. I think I will be using getmiro more.

    Downside of getmiro, is it downloads the videos to your comp before your able to play them while joost streams its videos.
