KinEmote controls Boxee or XBMC via your Kinect

The Microsoft Kinect hacks just keep on coming, and we'll probably be seeing even more cool apps released now that first-party drivers are available for download. Today, we've got a glimpse at a new open source project called KinEmote in action. It's designed to take advantage of your Kinect in its natural habitat: the living room. KinEmote is a -- you guessed it -- remote control app which...

Boxee eyes HTML5 goodness, ditches Gecko for WebKit

Boxee, everyone's favorite open-source underdog in the emerging entertainment-center-in-a-box market, has been using Gecko for its on-board browser for years now. That's all about to change, according to Boxee's Lead Apps Developer Rob Spectre, who told GigaOM that the team was looking to make good use of HTML5, and saw a shift to WebKit as the best way to get there. Boxee users should expect to...

Boxee releases new beta with streaming movie library

Boxee, one of the best all-in-one media center apps, has just released a new beta that introduces a library of full-length streaming movies. Boxee was already famous for letting you watch and listen to streaming content on your computer, and hook the whole thing up to your TV, too, but its new partnerships with indie movie sites make it even better. With Boxee, you already have Netflix,...

Boxee gets a business plan: Subscription content coming soon

Boxee is a media center platform that helps bring internet video to your TV. The software runs on Mac, Windows, or Linux, and works great if you have a PC next to your TV. Soon you'll also be able to pick up a Boxee Box from D-Link which is a small A/V device that you can stick next to your TV, no PC required. The company has gotten a lot of hype over the last few years, and the software...

Boxee beta officially available

Boxee is one of those magically delicious technologies that you may not "get" until you try it. Then you try it and you're hooked. I'm just talking about the old alpha builds here, which I tried on my non-techy mate and she loved Boxee, frequent crashes and all. With tons of free video and audio streaming content, plus the ability to add your locally stored multimedia wares, it's one of the least...

Hands-on with the new Boxee Beta media center app

Boxee is a media viewer that allows you to simply and elegantly browse videos, music and photos on the web or on your hard drive. The alpha version of the app has been around for a while, but the new closed beta kicks things up quite a few notches. An improved interface and some new content partners - still no Hulu without a workaround, though - make Boxee an excellent choice for all your...

Boxee beta unveiled: Cross-platform media player gets a major facelift

Boxee is a media center application for Mac, Linux and Windows that gives your PC a more TV-like interface for interacting with music, movies and pictures. Of course, that's what Apple Front Row, Windows Media Center, and Linux apps like MythTV do as well, but Boxee has a heavy emphasis on web content and it's kind of like an all-in-one jukebox for internet video, music, and podcasts. Boxee...

Boxee media center to hit beta next month

Media center application Boxee has grabbed a lot of headlines over the past year or two, and for good reason: Boxee provides Mac, Linux, and Windows users with an excellent solution for watching internet video on a TV. While web browsers were generally designed for viewing text and images with video thrown in as an afterthought, Boxee was designed to look and feel more like a consumer electronics...

Boxee media center now available for Windows, adds live MLB games

After months of private Alpha testing, the Boxee team has finally released a public alpha of the Boxee media center application for Windows. That means you can now run Boxee on Mac, Windows or Ubuntu Linux. The public alpha for Windows does seem to be a bit more stable and responsive than the earlier private alpha version. Boxee provides you with a full screen browser designed for managing and...

You'll never really get Hulu on your TV, so stop whining

As Boxee announced the (long overdue) release of it's Windows version, geeks everywhere itching to cut the Cable TV cord -- presumably leaving the one connected to the cable modem alone -- sighed lovingly, and once again began to wax poetic on whether or not Hulu would come back to Boxee. Even Avner Ronen, CEO of Boxee sounded hopeful in his quick interview with NewTeeVee. I on the other hand,...

Boxee Alpha media center for Windows to go public on June 23

Boxee has been getting a lot of attention for its media center application that lets you manage and watch web video and movies stored on your desktop. But right now, the program is only publicly available for Mac and Ubuntu. There's been a Windows version in private alpha testing for a few months, but the key word there is private. No invite code, no access. But that'll change soon. Boxee...

Echodio: sync your iTunes library and send playlists to Boxee

Echodio is a solution for syncing iTunes libraries across multiple Macs and sending music to your TV or home theatre with Boxee. It's as simple as putting the songs you want to sync into your Echodio playlist, and letting them sync in the background with any other machines you've set up. Echodio can sync silently in the background, or show notifications, but keeping your Echodio playlist...

New boxee alpha brings Pandora, XUL-browsing and an API

At the boxee meet-up in NYC tonight, the team is unveiling a new bleeding-edge alpha that adds lots and lots of cool stuff to my personal favorite media center solution. The latest release, which should be available as you read this (or very shortly thereafter), brings: Pandora support A new boxee API A new XUL-based browser to get around the Hulu nastiness A PBS App Box app from BoxeeHQ ...

Zinc Beta 3 is a better multimedia web browser

Zinc is a full screen browser for internet video. But that description doesn't really do the application justice. Basically, it allows you to watch internet video on your television screen using a remote control almost as easily as a keyboard and mouse. You know, a lot like Boxee. But there's one major thing setting Zinc apart from Boxee: Zinc is based on Firefox. And that's going to make it...

Internet on TV updates: Pandora for Vudu, iPhone Boxee remote

For the last decade or so people have been talking about how eventually the TV screen and computer monitor will merge. Over the last year or two, we've actually started to see that happen. More and more people are watching TV on their computers either using TV tuner cards or internet video from sites like Hulu. And computer apps like Boxee and set top boxes like Vudu are making it easier for...
