I'm planning on turning an old laptop into a media center for our home. However, I need some pretty specific features:
- Netflix integration
- Hulu integration
- YouTube integration
- XBOX controller support (Using 360 Wireless for this project)
- Possibly Steam integration for gaming.
- Possibly a web browser.
I can run on any platform, but I'd prefer Windows or Ubuntu for this. Also, I want the media center to have true controller capabilities. This means it's not an emulated mouse. The controller can actually select things. If possible, I would like to be able to assign hotkeys so I can use my dPad and similar for play/pause, FF/Rewind, and volume. If absolutely necessary, I would be okay with scripting actions.
I would prefer free, but cheap (less than $30) would work as well. I am fine with plugins for an existing solution.
