Boxee [Mac, Linux]

Boxee is a media center software for your Mac or Linux machine. Based on the xbmc (XBox Media Center) open-source project, boxee was developed to be a “social” media center program that plays media from your home network and the internet. In addition, it also allows you to stream or download movies, tv shows, music and photos. Boxee can stream TV shows, movies and clips from Hulu, CBS,, Comedy Central, Youtube, MySpaceTV and many others. When it comes to photos, flickr, picasa are there.

If you have an AppleTV, you can also install Boxee to allow additional features AppleTV's built in software does not have. Of course, this requires you to hack your AppleTV but the process is pretty simple and straight forward. You can get a video guide on how to do this here.
