Xbox IE

Has anyone found any websites for streaming tv shows that will work on the xbox 360 internet explorer app? Every one i came across required downloads, plug ins, or flash.

I'm afraid not.

All will require some form of plug in.

There probably aren't any since there is no flash or java support on it.

Youtube app is going to be the only/best watch to watch videos on the Xbox 360. Although there is an adult website that will in fact play through IE.

Actually, even though I have a 3 mo. Gold account, I have tried or wanted to try to use IE and see what it will and won't do. As London as I have my laptop and iPad, I don't need it.

I don't use the IE app in Xbox. It's a piece of shit!

I don't get the point of having all these apps and not being able to work properly. I wish they kept it as just an old school gaming console!

It does seem like a basic dumbed down version of IE you would use on PC. I don't use it much but its handy in case my crappy phone wweb browser won't work.

When did IE even work properly on a PC? If you're using it with no issues, you're one of the lucky few!

FWIW, it's super easy for me to see someone's history that they think they've deleted on a machine when they've been using IE on Windows.

It's a little more work on Mozilla based stuff. If at all, if they know anything about how Firefox works.

I've not had to do anything with Chrome yet, it's not popular at all out here, haven't even seen an installer for it on a client's machine.

Food for thought.

Pretty much all non-supported. I've been looking through a bunch.

And what is with all the hating here? If you don't like using IE on the Xbox then don't. No one is forcing you.

Forever to load up a single page? Mine loads up no problem, click on something and a few seconds later its loaded.

OT Not that I've looked for any TV streaming sites but I've not come a cross any websites that let you watch videos.

Actually, I prefer IE for the XBOX, because the Wii's web browser is ass. IE on 360 may not be perfect (no Flash support?!), but it's a hell of a lot better than the Wii's Opera web browser.

It can't seem to keep up with the updates some sites are putting up, so Facebook is virtually unusable on the Wii, and YouTube is screwy (even YouTube XL). Plus, it only loads stuff when it feels like it.

On XBOX 360, I'm just glad there's SOME form of web browser, and I'm personally happy with IE. I've used it for years, and seeing it on XBOX (finally) makes going on Facebook and x360a much more convenient. Why fire up the computer when you can just browse straight from the XBOX?

As for what video sites can work on IE, I'm not at all certain. Of course if you want to watch videos, just load up the YouTube app.
