HTPC Software Advice Please Tags: Multimedia Movies Software Apps Last response: December 4, 2012 2:12 PM in Applications Share phrosyn December 4, 2012 1:10:56 AM I've been looking for a software to manage my ever growing collection of movies and tv series and I have found Plex is the closest but im sure there is better. Plex Pros: -Filters for browsing movies (Genre, rating, actor, year, unwatched etc...) -Easy to use -Downloads info and art with no issues Plex Cons: -Does not launch video direct from drive (web based) (deal breaker) -Not as attractive as some others Is there another software (or combo of software+plug-in) that would suit me? More about : htpc software advice rwpritchett December 4, 2012 2:12:41 PM I suggest you give xbmc a try. IIRC, Plex was an offshoot of xmbc, but the original is better IMO. http://xbmc.org/about/ There's also Media Browser (a plugin for Windows Media Center) or Media Portal.
