Might be able to do it in less steps with xmlstarlet, although whether that would end up being shorter overall I don't know - xmlstarlet syntax confuses the heck out of me.

Prompts for your password, or if you're a bit mental you can add your password into the command itself in the format "-u user:password".

Do you know of a way to add local files to the boxee queue?

I was going to look at that next actually - I'm sure it's possible. I will report back if/when I find anything out.

It would be great to add all of the newest movie files from select directories to the queue. Selecting the files to be added wouldn't be the issue, I just cannot figure out how to go about adding them.

Definitely doable - check out the Boxee bookmarklet which has this code in a Javascript form:
