Is there any way that Boxee could work with WordPress like it does with Tumblr?
I don't use Tumblr and don't really want to as I like the feel of WordPress. I am talking about the web version of WordPress here (http://www.wordpress.com) the "Get A Free Blog Here" thing. Just another suggestion.

I too second this suggestion, I think a wordpress widget/plugin would be great and would only spread the boxee revolution further/faster :)

Ok, so I went ahead and found an alternative to a wordpress widget.

For those of you using wordpress, and do NOT use tumblr, sign up for an account at tumblr.com

once you do, put your username/password into the boxee.tv admin panel section where it says you can put your tumblr information.

Once submitted, open boxee and play a few videos, listen to some music, and do a few other things if you want. Once you've done that, go to your wordpress dashboard. Go to the Design tab > Widgets tab > Add RSS.

Edit the widget settings by entering in the RSS feed for your new tumblr account, the URL should be:

http :// USERNAME .tumblr.com/rss

(with USERNAME replaced with your account name for tumblr obviously)

Give the feed a title you want something like "My Boxee History"

Choose how many previous items you want it to display for your previously watched/listened to content on Boxee.

If you want to add other options to the RSS Feed you can do so by ticking the checkmarks if you want there.

Click on "Change". then "Save Changes".

Now check out your wordpress blog with your new boxee rss feed. ;)
