Google’s “Understudy” plugin allows access to streaming video through the Front Row interface of Mac OS X. The user can subscribe to multiple feeds, and select a video to watch from them. “Understudy” currently supports Hulu and Netflix.
According to Google, “Understudy” is stable, but is also a work in progress. Please feel free to report any problems on the issue tracker.
“Understudy” is not affiliated with any of the streaming video sites the plugin supports, and will only work in cases where those site would (typically this means you must live in the United States).
