Xbmc music library not updating avg slows computer down when updating
Media Portal is another free open source media center, but this one is exclusively for Windows.
It is designed to be a relatively lightweight application that can run on lower powered Windows machines.
Despite these improvements, the focus in home entertainment shifted to consumer electronics (CE) devices.
The Xbox One will have live TV viewing capability that will support third-party, over-the-air tuners from Hauppauge and presumably others in the future.
Similar to Kodi, Media Portal organizes all your music, video, and photo content and can add metadata for commercial content.
It can play DVDs and Blu-rays, and virtually any content format.
Microsoft recently announced that after a dozen years, it would no longer include support for Windows Media Center (WMC) in the upcoming Windows 10.
WMC was novel when introduced as a special edition of Windows XP in 2002.
