A NodeJS based media center
What is MediacenterJS?
MediacenterJS is a media center (like for instance XBMC) running completely from the comfort of your browser. The backend is based on Node.JS with ExpressJS and JADE templates. The MVC structure allows developers to add a plugin to MCJS with ease. The server application runs on Windows, MAC and Linux systems, the client runs in every modern browser (Chrome is preferable though).
Who is this for?
Although services like Netflix or HBOgo are really awesome, they do not have every media you might enjoy or already own. Especially if you're born before the streaming age like me, you'll probably have a lot of media locally somewhere. So, if you want the convienence of the aformentioned services, but you want to use your own media, this app is for you!

Be sure to check the open issues before filing a new one. If you're filing a new issue, be sure to mention your NodeJS version (node -v in a terminal or prompt) and the platform (eg Windows or Ubuntu, Debian etc) you are running the MCJS server on.
