I am open to the idea. My preliminary thoughts on the matter have
always been that there should be some form of universal "translation"
matrix that allows adding support for new sites/players easily.
Something like an XML file that maps actions to coordinate clicks or
what boxee does to handle this kind of control. I don't mind
admitting that the XML format I designed for MNV is heavily
boxee-inspired, and thus we support many similar functionalities to
what their RSS format supports (and I daresay some more interesting
ones which they do not). The only thing we really lack is a) the
above kind of control interface and b) more scripts.
