  • Boxee Invites For Linux! [Linux Media Center App]

    Tomorrow we'll have a story about the Linux version of Boxee, a "social media center" that's based upon X-Box Media Center. In the mean time though check out http://www.boxee.tv/

    The Boxee company though has allowed us to give out invites for the private alpha testing going on for the Linux version. Right now Boxee is only available for Ubuntu 7.10 and Ubuntu 8.04.

    So if you're interested in trying out this new Linux media center application (for free), post your email address in this thread along with a simple (or a lengthy one works too) explanation as to why you'd like to test Boxee. Then we'll email you out invites. You also must have at least five valid posts in the Phoronix Forums to be elgible.

      Oh yeah, sure. Or if you use the email address associated with your forum account, I can get it that way too, just say in your post.

                If you are using Ubuntu 7.10 or Ubuntu 8.04 and would like to test out this Linux media center application, check out this thread on the Phoronix Forums.
                You can also download the source so your not limited to Ubuntu.

                  Always nice to see some competition, even amongst open source applications. I'd like to give Boxee a shot as well.
                  I suppose you (Michael) as an admin can see my e-mailaddress?

                  Thanks!

                    yeah.. that was my plan :-) first try it on Ubuntu and than on openSUSE 11.0 and Sabayon Linux 3.5 :-)

                        Do it have V4L support or Mythtv klient ?

                        I love to test it, but wonder if I could ither use my Cable (DVB-C) or just an mythtv client ?

                          Well, I'm sorry I've been reading the homepage for quite some time already, but that article about Boxee finally triggered me to register for the Forum!

                            You may have a bit of an issue getting to work on openSUSE 11.0 64-bit. It's simple enough to fix though. Have a look at this thread http://xbmc.org/forum/showthread.php?t=34542&page=3 to get an idea of what you have to do.

                              I would really like to try this out. I've been a huge fan of XBMC, but the only thing lacking is TV support.

                              My email should be associated with my account. Thanks!
