Boxee apps folder locations:
* Linux: ~/.boxee/UserData/apps
* Mac/ATV: ~/Library/Application Support/BOXEE/UserData/apps
* Windows Vista/7: C:\Users\<windows user name>\AppData\Roaming\BOXEE\userdata\apps
* Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\<your windows user name>\Application Data\BOXEE\userdata\apps
Make sure you have "show hidden files" on.
great .. found it .. thanks alot !!
Couldn't one simply use the web server that Boxee runs for iPhone remote control to host the thumbnail and XML for RSS feed?
EDIT: I should add, on Windows 7 I can't find a directory that the built in Boxee web server uses, so I'm guessing its the exe and prolly unusable for the purposes above, anyone know for sure? Otherwise I gotta find a site to host an RSS feed....

It is supposed to be possible to do this on the Boxee Box as well, by putting the app in a special folder on a USB drive.
I followed the instructions at http://developer.boxee.tv/Applications#Boxee_Box, however this doesn't work for me. The app simply doesn't show up on the BoxeeBox, even after rebooting, and after setting the debug level to DEBUG as suggested for the desktop software. Has anybody had success loading apps manually on a Boxee Box?
