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). # History Media explorer started as an internal project inside Intel's Open Source Technology Center.
