Boxee Beta 0.9.21

  • File Identification Progress
    Easily see how many files Boxee is scanning, has identified, and doesn’t recognize within your media shares. Check the status from any menu sidebar (TV shows, Movies, Music) or from the Media menu (Settings -> Media).
  • Manual Movie & TV Show identification
    Help Boxee identify your personal media by telling it what’s in your collection. To change incorrectly labeled media select the movie or TV show, then click the eject icon on the right of the pop-up menu. Find and identify unresolved files by going to the “Files” menu, and selecting the “unresolved” folder at the bottom of the list. Select files and follow the instructions above to label them properly. You’ll now be able to put in movie names, and TV show seasons and episodes to ensure your collection is pristine.
  • Facebook & Twitter in your Boxee feed
    In addition to pushing out your recommendations to social networks, you can now also pull in recommendations from your friends on Facebook & Twitter. Shared videos appear automatically in your feed with an icon on the right to let you know where they came from. Set up this new option in your service settings for Facebook & Twitter.
  • New & Improved RSS Management
    We’ve created a brand new way to manage, discover and play RSS feeds in Boxee. First, check out the new management & discovery console on our website.
