What’s new in version 1.5.0

Updated on Dec 27 2011

Version 1.5.0:

Note: This product is not compatible with macOS Catalina and later.

Version 1.5 of Boxee is currently being tested by Boxee Box Early Access users and will soon be available in Beta. We plan to release 1.5 together with Live TV later in January. Here's some of the new features you can look forward to on the Boxee Box…

  • Home Screen - We've added links to the standard menu to launch the Browser and Live TV (once you've attached the dongle). We also gave the featured section a small facelift.
  • Menu - The Menu is now more accessible, popping up as an overlay that lets you quickly navigate between different sections or search. we also optimized search to minimize the number of clicks.
  • Movies & TV Shows - We updated the layout of Movies and TV Shows for easier navigation by Genre and Source as well as providing quick access to trailers.
  • There is also a new Movie details screen with extended synopsis and cast & crew information. For TV Shows it is now much easier to jump between seasons and see which episodes you already watched.
  • Watch Later & Friends - We expanded the thumbnails in Watch Later & Friends sections and now let you filter between clips, TV Shows and Movies.

Wait... So they are or they aren't doing desktop versions of this anymore? Because the official word was Boxee on the desktop was dead. And yet... Here this is.

My mouse only can travel about 50% across the screen here in version 1.5. I had to revert back to the stable build. :(

Apparently, 1.5 will be the final version of the desktop app. They are concentrating only on their Boxee device from now on.

The reason I got Boxee was to watch Vudu content. I linked my accounts no problem and see my rentals, however when I go to watch an movie (SD, all I've got so far), the movie plays for less then a minute and then I hear the fan of my mini spin up and it freezes, requiring a force stop. This has happened 3 times, which is every time. I have a brand new mini, 10.7.2, 8gb ram and newest Boxee.

Boxee really needs a Crackle.com plugin! ;-) Some pretty good free content there...

I found my movies under my files/home/movies. I wonder why they don't show under "Movies"

I like it but somehow it can't find all my movies. It only found one. Yet Front Row and XBMC found them all.

STILL no PowerPC support, yet XBMC (which both Boxee and Plex are based) has no problem running on PPC Macs!

I was a Plex user for sometime but Plex was giving me problems in a few areas. As this should be a review about Boxee and NOT a list of my problems with Plex I'll just say that Plex became unusable in many ways and I was sort of forced to use Boxee...I'm glad I was! I feel that Boxee has a more pleasant looking GUI, it seems a little less bloated, and I think it uses a bit less CPU than Plex. It also handles Digital audio with no problems, one of the problems I was having with Plex and was one of the deal breakers with Plex. I'm still getting familiar with Boxee and I'm sure there will be a thing or two that I miss about Plex but I'm happy to do a bit of exploring and check out this new media center (new for me anyway). All-in-all a very good experience so far!

Works well, but the app freezes when I try to exit. Anyone else have this issue and know what can be done about it?

Boxee STILL requires you to run Safari in 32-bit mode! For that alone, it deserves a 1-star review. It's now August of 2010, and Boxee has been in development since April 25, 2009 (v. 0.9.11.5774) -- and its devs STILL haven't been able to write it for Apple's contemporary operating system (10.6), which has existed since just a few months after Boxee was first released? That's a pretty sorry record. Perhaps they should start looking for a new career.
