my brief flirtation with boxee beta is over, and i'm back to plex. despite some nice eye candy, boxee just isn't ready for primetime. however, one great idea they implemented was the 'boxee bookmarklet': http://blog.boxee.tv...e-in-one-click/

it's like Instapaper's "read later" bookmarklet, except for video. i.e. you're on youtube and don't want to watch the video on your mac, so you click the bookmarklet and the video is queued to watch in boxee. except in Plex's case, it's probably queue up into an app.

anyways, i thought that was a killer feature and wanted to suggest it here.

Doesn't Plex already do this? You can queue Youtube videos in the plugin, then hit space later in the videos section to bring up the playlist and watch them.

Oh, on second read you mean from your browser for use in Plex. Youtube has a playlist feature and you can gain RSS access to it, but I'm not sure how that can be implemented in Plex. I'd love to see this implemented if it could work.

In the meantime, you could add your personal youtube RSS feed to the new RSS app in Plex, and then have to your favorites and such...

this is one of the best features of boxee.. and plex doesn't have it.

not all videos are from youtube, in fact, most of the videos I consume come from different sources.. this would be awesome

A great feature!
It has made my try to figure out how to start boxee from inside plex just to use it.
But I can't get them to stop fighting over who controls the remote.

Hell, I think a simple Pinboard or Instapaper addin might even be better.
The new instapaper for iPad recognizes a youtube bookmark as a video and displays it on the homepage as such.

+2 - same here, I'm done with Boxee, want to return to Plex, but am having a hard time giving up the "Add to Boxee to watch later" bookmarklet - any news on a solution for folks like me?

There's any chance to link "Watch Later" feature of YouTube to "My Queue" of Plex ?? That's be a killer!
