Multimedia, AV While we at OSNews often talk about desktops, laptops, and netbooks, there is another "form factor" which is making inroads into various households: the home theatre PC, or HTPC. There are a lot of software packages out there that will aid in turning a computer into an HTPC, and since I've been testing three of them extensively over the past months, I figured we'd talk about what you use.

I've used Windows Media Center a few times on my (now sold) laptop. I don't use media center software in Linux or FreeBSD (just plain mplayer).
I've tried FrontRow on my iMac, but it does seem somewhat limited. Even with all possible codecs installed there are videos it won't play well (or at all). I will surely try out Plex. Thanks!
