Roku Netflix Player

There has been some buzz about the Roku netflix player releasing some of its source code. The thing is they have to release the code as its GPL open source code that they modified. The truth is the code should have been available since day 1. This is no different than the Tivo source code that has been released. They didn’t release any of their proprietary code. Now that I know that this is based on Linux though this should hopefully be pretty hackable. It would be great if Xvid and H.264 support can be added. Then I won’t have to use my noisey Xbox 360 to stream my movies off my computer.
