MediaPortal RC3

Posted on Friday, Oct 19 2007 @ 00:11 CEST by

MediaPortal is an Open Source application ideal for turning your PC in a very advanced Multi-Media Center / HTPC. MediaPortal allows you to listen to your favorite music & radio, watch your video's and DVD's, view, schedule and record live TV and much more.

Here it is! The (hopefully) last Release Candidate on our road to your ultimative HTPC experience - grab MediaPortal RC3 while it is hot! Recently some bigger code changes were needed to get rid of limititations we couldn't bear any longer. Therefore we decided to throw out another Pre-Release.

One of the fundamental changes is our switch to NSIS (Nullsoft Scriptable Install System). NSIS gives us more flexibility creating advanced installers which will allow a lot of customisation. With the RC3 release we mainly want to make sure that this new installer is working nicely.

Further changes have been done mainly to the music section which database is almost a complete rewrite. Inspired by MeediOS we simplified the database layout but also improved its performance. And when you're done with scanning your music shares you might enjoy the new grabber for artist images and album covers which has been added to the audioscrobbler plugin.

We are already curious about your experience. If your feedback is mostly positive then the MediaPortal final version will be released quite soon.
