All right guys, I'm absolutely failing at finding the information I'm looking for. I want to find a way to query the XBox Live friends list so that I can develop an XBox Live friends list viewer. I saw XBList, but what's-his-name isn't going to go open source. Can anyone with better google fu point me in the right direction? Double extra bonus points if your solution can be used with Google Gadgets Thanks, everybody! Edit: I'm probably going to bed pretty soon here, so please don't be offended if I'm too asleep to reply to you! [smile]

I hate to reply to myself, but I'm still stumped. Does anyone know of a method to retrive an XBox Live friends list and/or online status?

I'm thinking I might see what I can glean from the XBox.com website's friend list, since that format might be more palateable to AJAX.

Any ideas?

I appreciate the suggestion, but I already mentioned that XBList is closed-source, and that "how it works" FAQ doesn't mention what technologies he uses, what queries the server responds to or how to parse the response.

I guess what I'm specifically looking for is how to query the XBox.com server to get a friends list. I'm using AJAX, but anything that helps me understand it better would be a great boon. Unless I missed something, he doesn't really discuss anything of the sort on his site.

It explains exactly how he does it, he simply retrieves the web page and parses it, simple as that. Parsing HTML isn't exactly rocket science ,c
