The remote control was a feature that a home theater media player could not possibly miss, so XBMC Media Center allows you to control it from the comfort of your couch.
Apart from media contents found on your computer, XBMC Media Center can also play audio and video files from the Internet or from any other network; you can also stream your multimedia easily and error-free.
Images are just as important to XBMC Media Center as videos or music, so this sleek application provides you with various image viewing options. Shift between wrap, list, big list, and thumbnails; change the sorting order and create slideshows.
When it comes to videos, you can organize them in a playlist and apply all kind of options (scaling method, deinterlacing, black bars cropping, zoom amount, viewing mode, post-processing, pixel ratio and so on).
Any reliable and easy-to-use media player should help you organize your multimedia files easily. XBMC scans your media contents automatically and allows you to create an easy-manageable library. Enjoy features such as box covers, descriptions, fanart, slideshows and various audio visualizations.
The only limitation of this software tool is the fact that you cannot exit full-screen mode.
XBMC Media Center is an ideal choice if you need the perfect jukebox application for your HTPC; the design and the interface are great, the response time is good and you have at your disposal almost any type of tool you could imagine.
