Windows/Mac/Linux: If you’ve been using the recently released Boxee Beta media center but found it to be a bit on unusable side of buggy (at least one Lifehacker writer felt that way), good news: Boxee just released an update to Boxee Beta, and while the update doesn’t have any new features, it’s overflowing with bug fixes (over 500 resolved issues in total). A few highlights among the fixes:
- Significantly improved video quality of our DXVA support
- Regained support for older graphics cards (pre-2.0 pixel shader) which was broken after move to DXVA
- Improved file scanning performance
- Playlist playback of internet video streams was sometimes using the music player instead of the video player
