The Boxee Bookmarklet is like Instapaper for online videos. If you see a video you want to check out later, just hit the Boxee Bookmarklet in your browser, and then next time you login to your Boxee software, your videos will be queue'd up for you. I generally prefer the XBMC experience over Boxee, but this feature is helping turn the tide back towards Boxee. Now I can queue up all my geek tech talks for viewing at home!   http://www.boxee.tv/watchlater

About this topic


Boxee is a cross-platform freeware media center software with a 10-foot user interface and social networking features designed for the living-room TV. Boxee is a fork of the free and open source XBMC media center software which Boxee uses as an application framework for its GUI and media player core platform, together with some custom and proprietary additions. Marketed as the first ever "Social Media Center", Boxee enables its users to view, rate and recommend content to their friends through many interactive social networking features.

 Boxee is still under development and is currently only available as alpha releases for Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux, as well as Apple TV, for computers with x86 architecture processors. The first public alpha of Boxee was made available on the 16 June 2008 for Mac OS X.


Boxee has expressed interest developing a dedicated set-top box (hardware) for Boxee;[8][9] the company is also interested in licensing the Boxee media center software and its social networking service as a third-party software component to other companies for them to use the Boxee software in their hardware, such as game-consoles, set-top boxes from cable-TV companies, Blu-ray Disc and DVD players, or embedded computers built-in directly into Television sets. Boxee has also stated that their goal is to have Boxee run on as many third-party hardware platforms and operating systems as possible.
