TWiT Boxee App v1.7

Below is a list of changes in the 1.7 update:

  • Changed app name from TWiT.TV to TWiT
  • Added version number to splash screen & settings tab to help with bug reporting
  • Added more streaming options to the ‘Watch Live’ page
  • Better live stream navigation (two rows instead of one)
  • Moved show quality selection to settings tab to provide more space. It also affects the quality of episodes in the recent tab.
  • Better show navigation (5×5 grid instead of one really long row)
  • Minor graphics tweaks (Mostly just color changes to follow the TWiT Developer Guide:
  • Album art for shows are now stored locally to save bandwidth

This update was also supposed to contain a favorites ┬átab which would allow you to just see a list of your favorite shows. The boxee api doesn’t provide an easy way to do this but hopefully I figure out a way to do it and get that feature released A.S.A.P.

  1. I’m having an annoying bug.
    I choosing live bitgravity 1mbps

    It plays 10 seconds of NON LIVE twit feed and then freezes. The video is probably from yesterday. Its the same 10 seconds every time i select bitgravity (or start the app, or reboot the box)

    The 10 seconds suggest HLS.
    The actually bitgravity HLS feed is streaming the current live feed well enough.

  2. Thanks so much for giving us a Boxee TWiT app. Should I be seeing all TWiT shows? I only see 7 (BYB, iFive, Know How, NSFW, TNT, TWiET, TWiT). I’m really looking for MacBreak Weekly…

  3. Is there any chance of an update to this fine app to reflect changes to the servers? These were the only choices that never seemed to buffer and stall for me.

    • Sorry for the SUPER late response. Unfortunately, the Boxee platform is no longer being supported so I am unable to make updates to the app.
