Front Row Boxee

UPDATE: For a version that works in Snow Leopard see this post

front-row.jpgI have thrown together a plugin for Front Row that will allow you to launch Boxee. If you want to try it out you can get it from

If you install it and you don’t see Boxee as an option then you should run
killall Front\ Row
from the command line. That will make sure that it gets loaded.

It’s a bit of a work in progress. When you exit Boxee it should put you back into Front Row but that doesn’t always seem to work. Also, you sometimes see the desktop for a few seconds as it switches between the interfaces. Currently it is just some hacking done to the code from the frontpython project. I would like to move it from python to obj-c as time allows.
