What is My Media System

My Media System is an application that manages, displays and plays media content such as videos, music, pictures, and more. MMS runs perfectly on anything from a Set-Top-Box connected to your TV-Set, to your specially tailored multimedia PC and HD display.

So what does it look like?

Below you can see two screenshots. More screenshots.  

What makes it so special?

As the name implies, MMS is a media system with you in control. It lets other applications such as MPlayer, VDR, or Xine take care of what they respectively do best, and integrates them into one system, that is easy to understand and operate. By combining their individual strength, you get the best of all worlds, in one media application. MMS is easy to install, configure and use. It's even translated to 11 languages so there a good chance it's available in your native tongue.

How do I install it?

MMS is open source and available free of charge. It runs on Linux and is known to work with all major distributions.

Installation instructions for the distributions Debian, Ubuntu and Gentoo are available in the wiki.
