Add to Queue in Boxee

15 Jan 2010

One of my favourite features in the new Boxee Beta is a bookmarklet to add internet videos to a queue to watch in Boxee later. Once you’re logged into boxee.tv, the bookmarklet is found bottom right. Clicking it on a page with supported video type sends it to Boxee with a confirmation message:

Once the bookmarklet is clicked a confirmation message appears

(The video in the screenshot was live visuals for Overture by Brian McBride, he of Stars of the Lid fame)

This is even more useful to me than all the various video apps that come with Boxee, is an example of what sets Boxee apart from just using XBMC. However, if you’re using ClicktoFlash, with Youtube set to use H.264 video where possible, it will interfere with the magic, and Boxee can’t find the video. You just need to make sure it’s unchecked if you want to use the bookmarklet:
