End of the Web 01/10/2012
By now we all of have heard or know of the outcome if SOPA and Protect IP come into play. But have we really thought about what will happen to our normal everyday lives. Think for a second, when you find a funny clip your first instinct is to send it to Facebook, Twitter, Email and Blog it. Had to break it to you, but there is a 50% chance that clip or video is protected and if you view it or submit it you will be liable. Dang there goes the web. So what will the web look like when this passes, mainly just words of opionions with official paid links, ads, and approved open domain video. Another words it's going to suck. Hey don't worry it won't pass would it? Think again, it's going to get nasty before it gets better. Immagine how much not interesting our lives will become when we can discuss anything without fear of breaking the law. What will the outcome bring, nothing but more trouble. In the old days, when alchohol became illegal therew as the probition people were sneaking it in and selling it through very secure channels. I am willing to bet you, the same group of people that created torrents, encryption among other things are working on a backup plan. This is just one scenario that is floating around. The purpose of these bills are strickly to scare the leaving hell out of you and to put order back into a place where people make money. Clear and simple. THis has nothing to do with protection of any sort. What we will loose is everything we hold dear "Our Freedom", "Our Creativity".
Possible fix Boxee 1.5 in VirtualBox 01/10/2012
Instead of Waiting on Team Boxee here is an alternative option:
So, your are one of the few that are getting the blank logon screen and have choosen to either return to boxee 0.9 or try XBMC. Did you know of one other choice, try this.
YOUR VIDEO DRIVER IS NOW A NVIDIA TNT RIVA, last checked this is a functional driver for Boxee! I have confirmed on my HP internal Intel inside chip was registering as yours BLANK, but virtually it showed up as Nvidia. So in theory, you may to have an alternative. Please note the following details as each invidual results will vary depending on System Resources.
Other important details, any kind of virtual enviroment requires you to have at least a gig or higher of ram to function properly. Otherwise it will be sluggish, yes it will still work under that setting but it will not be a decent speed to view.
Obtain more information and build from https://www.virtualbox.org/
to obtain your flavor choice http://virtualboximages.com
If this worked for you, please post your results to the forum if you discovered another driver from your attempt please post that as well. Either way, I hope this information was beneficial. Best of luck.
