Boxee on Media Center 2005

Boxee seems pretty cool. But it's a drag to load up from Media center 2005 unless you have VNC or a mouse. Here's my workaround... This will add a Boxee icon to the More Programs menu in media center.

Download this zip file: http://www.box.net/shared/hxl5mdif42

Then extract the 2 files (Boxee.mcl & Boxee.Bat) to: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Accessories\Media Center\Media Center Programs

Now simply double click on the MCL file to install.

For those of you running Vista MCE try this: http://www.hack7mc.com/2009/01/adding-boxee-to-media-center-x86-and.html

Hi there, I'm still trying to use Bookmarkit! on my xbox360 mce 2005 extender. There's no way to make the mcx user access the file bookmark.txt in ehome so my question is: is there a way to change the file location in the program code in some way?? Thank you very much for your help and my compliments for the very good work. carlozzoc@excite.it

Looks like the link is dead. Is there any way you can repost this?

I just discovered Boxee a couple of days ago and today your MCE plugin for Boxee. Thanks for your excellent work. BTW have you posted a link to this plugin on the Boxee website?
