hello,
i've been using xbmc since it split from xbmp, and so far i really like what has been done with boxee. i like the social aspects and such. So far it has replaced my xbmc use, but the one thing that i've not been able to locate is an option to queue videos. within xbmc, you can set up a huge queue (say a season of shows) and it'll play them in order, or random. but it will also let you view and edit the queue. does boxee have something similar? I noticed through the keymap.xml, there is a key set to queue; but how can i see the queue manager?

essentially, i like to set up a random queue, and use it as a tv station of my favorite shows.

Thanks

edit: i am using ubuntu 8.04 + the ppa repos

'm very interested in a reply for this as well. pressing q doesn't seem to do anything. pressing p on say a season folder should queue all episodes in that folder. im pretty sure this functionality has been removed for now since it would probably break with internet video content (eg. play all cnn top stories).
