North Bay Linux Users’ Group

general meeting

Media Center PCs

When: Tue July 14, 2009 07:30 PM to 09:30 PM

Speaker: Kyle Rankin and Allan Cecil

Location: O'Reilly Media

It seems like just about everyone is coming out with a PC that you can connect to your TV and play videos from. Of course, we all know just how many of those are running Linux under the hood. Why buy one of those when you can build your own? In this talk Kyle Rankin and Allan Cecil are going to discuss two fully-featured programs you can install on a regular Linux system to turn it into a media PC: Xbox Media Center (XBMC) and Boxee.
