Patch Guidelines - and how to find something to work on

We appreciate every help we get from our community. Especially if we receive patches. If you are a developer and want to contribute to this project, then you might wonder what you could do.
Your first stop should be our Mantis bug tracker. Or the roadmaps to be more specific.


  1. MediaPortal 1
  2. TV-Server
  3. DeployTool / NSIS

There you can find all the confirmed bugs and new features the team agreed to add.
If an issue was not yet assigned to a developer, then you can give it a try if you want.If it is a time-consuming change, then it would be wise to start a work in progress thread, to avoid that someone else starts to work on the same issue.

But to get a patch into our svn, a few criteria have to be met.
This is why we have created a description in our wiki which explains the patch process from start to end in detail.
Please read and follow it if you are going to submit a patch.

About The Project

The vision of the MediaPortal project is to create a free open source media centre application, which supports all advanced media centre functions, and is accessible to all Windows users.

In reaching this goal we are working every day to make sure our software is one of the best.

Support MediaPortal!

The team works very hard to make sure the community is running the best HTPC-software. We give away MediaPortal for free but hosting and software is not for us.

Care to support our work with a few bucks? We'd really appreciate it!
