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 application that you can navigate from the couch with a remote control.
Boxee can access online video from services including Hulu, Joost, and BBC’s iPlayer. You can use it to enjoy audio and video podcasts. And you can access local media stored on your hard drive.
