Hi everyone, if your using the latest Windows version of boxee version 0.9.7.4825 you can get the pause on all online videos to work by changing the compatibility mode of the program. I have tested this solution with Windows Vista Ultimate Service Pack 1 PC and on a Windows Vista Home Premium Service Pack 1 PC. Here are the steps:
- right click on the shortcut or executable
- clicking properties
- then click compatibility
- then check the run this program in compatibility mode check box
- then choose windows 95 from the drop list
- click apply
- finally click OK and run boxee like you normally do.
One note however, though the pause works the pause is a bit sluggish in responsiveness on hulu sometimes where you may have to press the pause key or click the pause button on the screen twice to make it pause and sometimes it may just slow down the video first and then do a full pause a few seconds later and thus not an instant pause. But I have only found a problem on hulu. All the rest CBS, Comedy Central, MTV, Joost, etc. all seem to pause normally with no problems.
Hopes this helps people who are using the Windows version be able to pause their videos and help boxee figure why pause does not work right in windows off the start.
