Entertainer - Linux Media Center

If you're considering assembling your own HTPC (Home Theater PC) but don't want to use Windows Media Center Editions, you'll love Entertainer. This project is a complete multimedia solution for Gnome and XFce environments written in Python. For its multimedia functions it uses the well known GStreamer and its interface is coded using Clutter, allowing smooth UI animations via OpenGL. Entertainer also uses some other interesting projects like SQLite, pyIMDBb and iNotify .

If you're interested in supporting the project than head to Entertainer and drop them an email.

After recently having discovered LinuxMCE, the Media Center solutions for linux are looking better than ever.

Here's a short YouTube video showing how nice its interface looks and behaves:


  1. That looks interesting, but please also consider the Elisa project. I've been using it for 3 months now and I LOVE it.


  2. Thanks for the tip Ben. I'll be sure to write about it as well. :)
