# About

Media explorer is a media centre application for Linux. It originally
targeted MeeGo but will also run on other distributions (e.g. confirmed
working on Fedora 13/14 and Debian sid).


# Features

Media explorer's features include:

* Browse, search and play media on local (inc. USB) and UPnP filesystems.
* Smooth, fast, animated user interface (based on Clutter + Mx).
* User experience designed to be usable with standard TV remote controls.
* Media player (using GStreamer for playback) controllable over DBus.
* Plugin system for adding new types of content and user interface
extensions.
* Uses standard metadata (Tracker) and media (Grilo) libraries for Linux.
* Library of reusable classes plus Model-View-Controller framework
for media playback and presentation (written in C/GObject).
