Phenom 9500+ quad core, 3GB RAM, Nvidia 8800GT: 260.19.36 driver.

Installed the latest Boxee for Linux. Got my remote setup. Everything works except when I open a video it opens in a tiny box in the upper left hand corner of my monitor.

Is there any way to get Boxee videos to play full-screen?

Also asked in Boxee forum. No one knows. Can't find the answer anywhere so I give. Never have gotten Boxee to work. Guess I'll stick to Hulu.

Well, never have gotten Boxee to run right. Fortunately I found Xbmc. Wow, just wow. Love it.

Can you use netflix and MLB with XBMC?

I am not sure how netflix works with Boxee, I started playing with it last night.

No Netflix for Linux. On Windows I kept getting DRM errors for content I'm paying for so I dumped Netflix. DRM only hurts paying customers. Criminals just crack it and keep going. So I'm done with that.

I see you have Nvidia 8800 gt, I have the GTX. Were did you get the proper drivers for it? If its okay to ask.

I installed the official binary from Nvidia.com.
