Media Center Connector - third party apps support/sdk? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there a way of having the Media Center Connector used by apps other than Windows Media Center, say, mythtv, media portal or gbpvr (specifically the last two given that they run on windows).

    I'd like to have all the meta data for movies on the home server but prefer another media center (mostly as the EPG and other factors make the Windows Media Center annoying to use here in NZ).

  • No. The Media Center Connector is designed to provide additional integration between Windows Media Center (a part of some versions of XP, Vista, and Windows 7) and Windows Home Server. It will not integrate with third party solutions.

    If other ISVs in the media handling arena want similar functionality, it should be within their capabilities to develop it. :)

    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
