MediaPortal contains spyware?

Written by ptmorpheus on .

On the internet some rumors are floating around that MediaPortal contains spyware

Please note that this is simply not true. MediaPortal does not contain any spyware or viruses. All our sources are free for downloading and anybody can check its spyware free. Also we received recommendations from sites like softpedia that MP is spyware free.


But if people download MediaPortal from some other server , bittorrent or emule link then offcourse we can not guarantee this. As always on the internet be carefull with the things you download & install on your pc. If you download MediaPortal from then you are safe. If you decide to use a copy you got from somebody or downloaded somewhere else then be aware it might contain viruses or spyware. 

MP is adware/spyware free

4:3 Skin Winner is 3DMP

Written by DMAN on .

Well after a re-vote the 3DMP skin won the poll for the 4:3 skin.

Some devlopers are working very hard to bring the next generation of GUI engine based on xaml to reality. Hopefully this will be ready for the 0.3.0 release and obviously you can expect the default 4:3 skin to look like 3DMP from Vanessa.

Please submit your 16:9 skin's within the next couple of days so we can start a 16:9 poll.

Thanks for your votes & support!
