MediaFrontPage is a HTPC Web Program Organiser. Your HTPC utilises a number of different programs to do certain tasks. What MediaFrontPage does is creates a user specific web page that will be your nerve centre for everything you will need.
MediaFrontPage can make use of, but is not limited to, the following projects:
- Sick Beard
- Transmission (WebGUI)
- uTorrent (WebGUI)
- XBMC (WebGUI)
MediaFrontPage requires an Apache/PHP Webserver to be running on the machine or network and must have PHP Curl configured correctly.
This project is always being updated by like minded individuals and bugs will exist. If you find a bug, please report it at XBMC Support Thread, and include as much information as possible.
