Quick tip for YouTube on HTPC


I was going to check it out, but YouTube XL is no longer available. The YouTube app on my Sony Bravia is okay, but not as good as the website. No viewing history and the playlists don't play.
Yup, Google posts here:

That they are no longer supporting YouTube XL in order to "Focus on a more rich consumer experience" or something like that...
I wonder what the real reason is for pulling the support? I'll have to hunt around for it, but I seem to remember reading somewhere a while back about the number of small companies/ideas/apps that Google has bought, developed, tried, and subsequently killed is larger than most other companies produce in a 5-10 year period...
