Australian content in TV shows
Thrilled to see ABC iView has been added to Boxee in Australia!
Have been having issues with playback, though. Running 0.9x on Ubuntu 10.04 64 bit.
When I play an iview video, the video plays but the window displays the iview website rather than the video itself. I get sound, though. This can be fixed by Alt+Tabbing out of Boxee then back in again. This will cause the video that is playing to be displayed correctly.
Another strange feature is that Volume up and down commands seem to control both iView's and Boxee's volume controls, so turning the volume down will turn down each of them and vice-versa. This makes setting the ideal volume especially difficult, which is a hassle because iView videos seem to be especially LOUD!
Other than that it's really fantastic to see this feature added.
While we're at it, I set Boxee to display only shows that are available to my country, but there are many (e.g. Southpark) which are not available to my location. Would love to see this fixed up in a future release. There's nothing more disappointing than trying to watch a video and finding it unavailable to me!
