Another homescreen tweak attached.
Replaced Queue column with "News" (linked to videos). Layout of this column changed to list without icons because some news feeds won't display icons. It is feeding off yahoo-pipe "bb_boxee" which is currently CNN videos but can be edited to include ABC, BBC and other (clone my yahoo pipe if you wish to change it).
Left Feed column edited to not display "source", allowing more space to wrap the title across 2 lines. Not sure if this layout works well with Boxee friends, I have it feeding from Twitter only. On twitter you can setup 2 accounts, mine being: bb_boxee and bb_boxxe_feed. bb_boxee gets automatically fed with various RSS feeds via twitterlive.net. bb_boxee_feed follows bb_boxxe. On the Boxee website, under services/twitter, bb_boxxe_feed is linked. So the setup is:
twitterlive.net posts RSS to --> bb_boxxe which is followed by --> bb_boxee_feed, which is linked inside Boxee.
Note1: Boxee only appears to retrieve twitter once every hour, be patient when first testing.
Note2: Only videos that are embedded in twitter (tweets with video icon) will appear in the boxee feed, so it seems de-facto limited to youtube and vimeo.
Note3: To get a rss feed from youtube user: http://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/base/...erName/uploads
Lastly, added ability to customize the home background overlay. PSD file included (not really changed much, just a bit darker on bottom).
One bug is that the News feed can randomly vanish. I have not figured out why, workaround is to just reload the homepage.
