quick intro to boxee from boxee on Vimeo
I have long been searching for an all-in-one media center for my Mac-based home setup. Windows users have some pretty good pre-packaged options with the Windows Media Center Server, but not for Macs. AppleTV is sorta-kinda a media center, but still not in the way I would like. You are limited to content already on your computer, and stuff available from iTunes or YouTube. Sorry, but I want it all.
Enter Boxee. I have not yet installed it, but Boxee appears to allow surfing from your computer OR television to any content available on the Web, and/or on your computer.
The demo above looks impressive. I'll let you know if it lives up to the hype.
