Its a shame...I think it used to play youtube and they took it away.
You can also set up something like Plex to stream video from your computer to a roku. Can use it if you rip your DVD collection to a hard drive (or if you have video from other sources). I think there might be a way to get youtube from there, but it is so cumbersome that it isn't worthwhile.
Not as awesome as my XBMC-equipped htpc, but you could fit 100 of those tiny new rokus into the computer's case.
