It doesn't do much in the way of video streaming, but it plays an impressive number of audio and video file types and it's got a built-in browser to boot.
The ExtremeVision is a set-top box with a single focus. If you've got a media file, the ExtremeVision will probably play it.
It's got a built-in internet browser, but it's unclear from the press release whether it can handle Silverlight. You've got Google Video, YouTube and Facebook capability, but there's no hint about whether Netflix and Hulu can be streamed.
The ExtremeVision can handle just about any video you can throw at it, including FLV, MKV, ISO, and the usual suspects like WMV, AVI and Divx. It's just as capable with audio files, touting support for WMA, FLAC, OGG, WAV, and of course, MP3.
It comes with a WiFi adapter, but you can plug it in if you prefer. It's got an HDMI output along with composite, component, stereo analog outs and an optical digital output.
You can snag the AVerLife ExtremeVision for $209.
