Seconded a thousand times. There are some real gems here, it would be spectacular to be able to browse through via boxee.

There are a few RSS feeds from the Archive, here's one...

http://www.archive.org/services/collection-rss.php?collection=prelinger

I added it to my Boxee RSS feed list on the boxee website:

http://app.boxee.tv/home/rss

I'll see if it's working today... That RSS is only the most recent prelinger additions, but it's a start!

I also added this feed, but there's no Info about the Clips, no synops nor any info about video/time and such. I'm thinking about giving Boxee Apps a shot, and creating one for Archive.org, but I really don't know where to start other than http://developer.boxee.tv/boxee-applications/
Anyone else thinking about doing the same thing? Or am I alone? ;)

I think one quick way to do it would be to use pipes... You could create a separate pipe for each category perhaps?

Will it be possible to "subscribe" to archive.org content by "archive subject" (keyword / keyword phrases)?
