boxee box watch amazon prime instant video store streaming

Filed under: bargain,DARPA,fair use — Sagacious Himself @ 4:09 pm

Paid Prime free video streaming PC/MAC requirements:

* JavaScript
* Flash

Boxee Box web browser can do that.  I have EDU prime so no free amazon instant video for me.. yet.

I’ll have to suffer fetching tv with alt.binaries until then.  I tried commercial DVR: they all sucked.  I tried netflix: being throttled for using as many as __I__ want was intolerable.  The internets is my PVR… no irksome advertising and all the awesomeness of x264.

Amazon confirmation of some speculations

* limited to two simultaneous streams
* can use two IPA
* no limit to registered stream capable devices
* plays well with vizio and bravia
* prime is stream only
* paid prime can only share shipping privileges

Find a vizio glitch?

Petition Amazon to develop/support Boxee Box native application for amazon instant video store streaming:

seen my download FairUse4WM post? wondering how to download FairUse4WM from the post? (Hint: UUdecode)

It’s old school…and I’m (again) the first one to do something like this. binary data UUencoded and posted (text) to a blog.

Now scurry off and imagine the potential
