A new Boxee Video Tutorial is available on YouTube. This new video follows our previous tutorial (How to enable file sharing on Mac).

Once you have created a network share, please watch this video for steps on creating a media source in Boxee and building your library.

lol I was thinking the same thing. Maybe boxee should make a boxee channel and put all this stuff there, under TV Shows or something.

Well done, and very helpful.

Thanks for the video, I have followed both parts, however when I goto my network sources I get the error : Error 2 : Share not available ?

Cant work out why it is saying this ?

I also cant seem to get boxee to index any of the music or photos that is currently on my atv hardrive ?

Same Network storage Problem
I have two network storage devices:

(i) A FreeAgent drive connected thru USB port on Airport Extreme
(ii) A Buffalo Terastation 1TB NAS

I see both of these in Boxee.

However, when I go to the FreeAgent drive it gives me msg "No files found at source" .... and on Terastation I get "Error 2: Share not available". Both have multiple AVI files on them.

I am not sure if this is because I have not installed (eg NitoTV ?) to read AVI files, an NAS issue (for Terastation) or ???

I'm still a bit confused...
I have an Airport Extreme as my WiFi point. On the network is a G5 (10.5.5) and a MacBook (10.5.5) along with my aTV (2.3 Boxee Patchstick 0.8).

I followed both videos. Everything was set the same. However, when I get back into Boxee > Video > Browse > Add Source > Network Source: Boxee couldn't see any networked computers last night. I confirmed that all Macs were on WORKGROUP.

This morning when I finally made it to the forum i get Error 2: share not available. I did not see this error yesterday.

Update: A reboot of all systems at once ended up solving the issue. Everything can see everything now.

I have heard of others with this same error and symptoms. I wish I could recreate. One person had a Time Capsule and it suddenly started doing this. The next day, it seemed to work.

Is the media share on your Macbook or G5? Before browsing from the ATV, make sure you can browse the network between the Macbook and G5.
