Add-in's for Windows Media Center

5 posts in this topic

Posted

Hi all,

WGS is starting to look into the creating an add-in section for Windows Media Center add-in's. There are a LOT of them out there in the wild. And it is going to be quite a daunting task to discover them, try them out, and add them to our add-in section.

So this is where you come in. We could use your help. Got a favorite or two add-ins you use and find you cannot live without in WMC? Let us know right here in this post! Even if it is one you tried and hated! ;)

And if you are a WMC add-in developer, we would like to hear from you also.

Thanks in advance for your input. It is the users that make a web site and it's forum great. The community of users at WGS is one of the main reasons why I joined WGS originally.

Okay, here are the add-ins I currently use

myMovies, but I think you know it

dvrms editing

TV TOOLBOX beta 4 no expiration date from http://mcedev.com/Product.aspx?id=f1b790e7...ec-d7bac9a8b3b0

Internet Radio

Webmedia http://www.mcesoft.nl/index.php?option=com...&Itemid=167

TV Series

TV Library http://www.digitallivingsolutions.co.uk/do...brary_1_0_0.zip currently no expiration date

but this requires some tweaking, info can be found in

http://thegreenbutton.com/forums/1/144287/ShowThread.aspx, more specifically check http://thegreenbutton.com/forums/post/217972.aspx and http://thegreenbutton.com/forums/post/205928.aspx

xml data needed for this app can be created with TVCollection Manager 1.03 http://benwoodring.spaces.live.com/blog/

and date setting in windows should be US/UK style to work with TvLibrary_1_0_0.

1) Lifextender - http://www.lifextender.com - this is a great commercial removal tool (uses either comskip or showanalyzer if you have it installed)

2) MCEBuddy - http://www.mcebuddy.com - this is a great tool that both removes commercials and converts the DVR-MS files into whatever format you want (WMV, DiVX, H.264, etc.)

3) MCE Standby Tool - http://slicksolutions.eu/mst.shtml - this is a great tool that takes care of the S3/S4 issues that all Vista Media Centers have! It has tons of options for putting the PC back to sleep, and it works great!.

4) Heatwave - http://thegreenbutton.com/forums/thread/276418.aspx - awesome weather plug in for Vista Media Center.

Note that all of these are supported on both Vista 32-bit and Vista 64-bit.

Enjoy!
