The Boxee Plugin is a Boxee-specific touchpad that lets you control Boxee with flicks, swipes and taps. No more repeated tapping of buttons. You can now control Boxee by simply sliding your fingers around the screen.
To scroll through long lists of content, just give your thumb a quick flick. The touchpad recognizes the speed of your movements and applies momentum to your actions, just like scrolling through lists on the iPhone itself.
Additionally, the touchpad displays show or song information and pulls cover art and screenshots from Boxee, making it easy to tell at a glance what's currently playing. But mostly, album cover wallpapers just look gorgeous!
The Boxee touchpad is also multi-touch, letting you pinch to zoom in and out of your photos. On a big screen HDTV, this is simply an amazing way to explore and display your photo collection.
We've added a few gestures for quick access to some Boxee controls.

If it's not there already, simply assign the macro [BOXEE] to an open slot in the Macro Bar.
The Boxee touchpad is configured to work with the default Boxee configuration. However, here are step-by-step instructions in case your configuration is different.
