Do they publish RSS feeds? If so, what are they?

Neither feed has media files in it, which Boxee would need to process them. The first feed does have .swf files embedded in it, but I think Boxee would need a feed directing to .flv files.

if i put the feeda into zeevee or zinc they play them fine. only thing for fear.net is that its annoying having to grab a keyboard to put my bday in everytime. zinc or zeevee< whichever you want to call it, runs on firefox just like boxee so why cant boxee handle the feed?

Zinc uses Firefox to open web pages and accesses their video like a normal web browser, just through an altered interface. Boxee does not run on Firefox. The latest version that is out for Mac does have the ability to open web sites in the Gecko web browsing engine, which Firefox uses. This could lead to Crackle support. For now, Boxee would need direct access to the media files, not the SWF the media files would be played through.

Fearnet would be awesome because as of right now it also works outside the U.S.... well in Canada at least.

I cant understand why zinc and now playon have figured out how to use these sites but the wonderful developers at boxee havent. I love boxee and its a pain switching between boxee and zinc. the only thing zinc has to offer is southpark, adult swim and crackle. would be nice to see these in boxee

If you add those feeds to your feeds on the Boxee site (logon to the site and click on Feeds at the top) they should both play fine in Boxee. At least they work for me. I haven't played a fear.net movie all the way though but it seems to play OK.
After adding the feeds they should appear under Applications > Video > My Feeds / Video Feeds (the application is called "My Feeds" but the thumbnail says "Video Feeds").

The Comedy Central App has a lot of full episodes of South Park.
There is an Adult swim plugin around.

Just found this link that someone from playon was researching the crackle rss feeds http://www.playonplugins.com/index.php?action=printpage;topic=595.0
