If you’re one of those who just love having all their favorite video hubs under one roof, then you might want to give MacroTube a try. MacroTube for Windows 7 Media Center lets you watch YouTube videos easily from the comfort of your couch.
Watching YouTube videos from a 10-foot experience (in Windows Media Center) is a whole new experience. The user interface of Media Center for sure is an eye candy to a lot of people (including myself), and going through media on your PC or online is just fun. Adding YouTube to Media Center is simple, you just have to install a handy little third party plug-in called MacroTube. After MacroTube is installed, you’ll see the YouTube link straight away on the main screen of Media Center and searching for video is the same as you would on YouTube’s website. You can search by relevance, by date or by rating.
MacroTube is still in it’s beta stage, and like other beta software, it has bugs and glitches and might crash in certain occasions but we really believe that with time that will be patched up. MacroTube is highly recommended for all Media Center + YouTube fanatics. You can download MacroTube from here and give it a try. And keep in mind that it only works with 32 and 64-bit versions of Windows 7’s Media Center. [via HowToGeek]
