MediacenterJS

Coming soon, completely free

MediacenterJS

MediacenterJS is a fully functional mediacenter application that runs in your browser. You can view your movies and listen to your music. All from the comfort of your favourite browser on your favourite device.

Easy to use

When you add movies to the library, the movies will be indexed in a matter of seconds and be ready for playback. No need to manually alter your files. It's great to add functionality to your TV, tablet, PC or Chromebook.

With remote control

MediacenterJS is easily controllable from the comfort of your couch thanks to the remote control. This webapp is platform independent and works from within your favourite browser.

The remote is generic and you can easily add remote functionality if you are an app developer. Documentation how to integrate the remote into your app is available on the GitHub page.

Based on HTML

The entire system is based on HTML, CSS and Javascript. Both serverside (NodeJS) and clientside.
This enables you to customize every little detail and easily create amazing new content and themes.

Cross device

Add functionality to your TV, Chromebook or Mobile devices by simply installing MediacenterJS. It can be installed on a Linux or Windows PC, or even a NAS or server. Your content is available wherever you are. Whether you're listening to your local music library at work, or listening to a podcast on your holiday.

Build apps for the store

MediacenterJS has its very own plug-in store giving you complete freedom to use MediacenterJS the way you want, with the apps you want.

Easy to use for Developers

We've tried to make it very easy for developers to build new apps. We use the proven NPM package manager to easily find and present your app in the plug-in store. But more importantly, you can use the tools, plug-ins and frameworks you like most to build great HTML/Javascript based apps.
