How do I...

My friend an I are going to stream our desktop's to our Xbox 360's and we were wondering if we could do some things on the Xbox in Media Center mode...
-Access iTunes Libary
-Play YouTube
-Access Firefox
-Access Microsoft Office (mostly Word and Power Point)

Can you do any of that in Media Center on the Xbox 360?

You should be able to access any songs on your computer, but not neccesarily through iTunes.
YouTube videos might be able to be streamed, but i doubt you can view the site itself.
Firefox... probably not.
Office.. Probably not.

If you're looking to use Youtube, Firefox and Office you're much better off just connecting your computer straight to the tv.

You should be able to watch Youtube directly from Xbox using the address www.youtube.com/xl.

Never knew that page was there. Quite effective as well, using the arrow keys on keyboard.

You're best bet is to look into the 3rd party media server such as PlayOn that has built in Xbox support. TubeCore will let you stream Youtube to it.
