Another day, another movie cataloging plug-in for Media Center! This time, it’s a beta Flash-based plug-in that uses a Cover Flow type display to cataloged DVDs. Dubbed Movie Browser, it runs on Media Center 2005 and Vista Media Center, and is available for download now (beta). The source code is also available.
Other developers, including Treas0n (the developer behind the above Movie Browser) and Sam Saffron (the developer behind Video Browser) has hinted at joining forces with the Open Media Library project to create a killer DVD Library for Media Center. This is going to be very interesting to watch. One of the critical downfalls of Media Center development in the community has been single person projects that end up dying over time. The concept of an open source project with three very active developers could result in an amazing project.
