We announced in this news that Ced2911, the well known 360 SDK/libxenon coder, was working hard on a video player for Xbox 360 with libxenon library. This video player is based on Mplayer (an Open Source Media Player), and after a long wait, the day of the first release finally happen.

Why using libxenon to make this? because even if SDK is more user friendly, with libxenon you can exploit the xbox 360 power with more efficiency (without all MS system’s cpu usage), as you have seen that with GliGli’s N64 emulator. Another cool point about developing on libxenon for a Media Player is the possibility to use NTFS Hard drive and so play files >4Gb which is impossible using the SDK (computer streaming don’t count).

Here is the full NFO :
