One thing that audio streaming services have over video streams is a solid recommendation service. A big reason is the fact that it is hard to track what you watch on your TV or media boxes. Trakt brings a fresh approach to movie recommendations by automatically tracking what you watch on your TV and combining it with strong community suggestions for an infinitely better experience.
Trakt works as plugins for media centers like XBMC, Plex, and Boxxee. Once installed, Trakt logs what you are watching seamlessly, which then gets fed to your public profile. Your friends will then know what you are watching, and the aggregate data of all users will make up the trending shows with the most popular showing in the Trakt charts.
Trakt also lets you connect to other social networks so you can automatically post or tweet what you are watching or post your updates on your forum signature or blog instantly.
