Media Browser 2.5.2 (Apollo): only for Windows 7

Media Browser, the must-have  plug-in for music and video for Windows Media Center, now in version 2.5.2 (Apollo). In addition to MK3D files detection and support via an external drive, this new update mainly impacts the overall performance of the module. It is also indicated that only Windows 7 is supported, so, since this version, the development team stop support updates for Windows Vista.

Download Media Browser 2.5.2

To complete, here is the full changelog:

  • Much faster RAL loading in most instances
  • Faster performance with the Music plug-in in most instances
  • Improvements to the default theme for Music items
  • RAL should eliminate dups in situations where you have multiple children of a top item pointing to the same items
  • Unavailable content should be handled much better. Now it will just skip the validation of the specific items that are not available and allow everything else to refresh.
  • Support for logos, art and thumbs at the core level (so all themes can take advantage of them).
  • Implemented non-english metadata retrieval from tmdb
  • Indicators are shown for premium plugins in the More Plugins window of the Configurator and you can limit the list of plugins to only free ones.
  • Screensavers can now kick in from the details screen
  • Jump in List fixes with non-english character sets
  • Much better Jump in List when not sorted by name.
  • 3D Movies can now be recognized by Media Browser
  • Added mk3d media type for external players
  • Change in xml provider to look for movie.xml primarily instead of mymovies.xml. For more details see Important Notes.
  • Default theme improvements and fixes
