Download MediaPortal for free!

MediaPortal is a free open source media center software, ideal for turning your PC into a very advanced multi media center, or Home Theater PC (HTPC).

Using MediaPortal, you can listen to your favorite music and radio; watch your videos and DVDs; or view, schedule and record live TV, much like a digital video recorder such as TiVo, but better. And that's only the basic features!

Question: What? Two versions? Why?
Answer: MP1 has been around longer. It currently has more plugins available to use. It is considered to be stable. Despite its age, it is still being maintained and developed.
MP2 is fairly new. Development of this was started approx. 4 years ago. The main drive was to use the good and bad experience from MP1, put them together and start building a new and improved version of Media Portal. The number of plugins available is not on the same level as compared to MP1. MP2 is already usable and stable. But of course it is being developed and improved further.
