Hi. As home theater PC (htpc) is like projector showing different TV channel, video as well music etc.
Many other softwares familiar with it are available, but I want software media player for htpc so that I could record video with audio music with high quality.
Such player which can organize movies, TV program, video and images well.
Some suggestion is required please.
What is the best software Media Player for htpc to record video?
In general the HTPC software is expected to do the following:
Live HD Television
Watch movies (Blu-ray, DVD, downloaded, etc)
Listen to Music
Other thing when discussing about HTPC is that how are you using it:
Connecting a laptop to TV
Using remote control
I m assuming you use a remote control for navigation.
There are various operating system based HTPC software's. Major operating systems are:
Microsoft Windows XP, Windows 7
Apple MAC OS X
So I would give you options based on the OS:
Windows XP ,Windows 7:
Windows Media Center – Free for specific version of windows
Sage TV – As old as Media center, but the music player is very basic. Not a freeware
XBMC – Xbox Media Center – Open source – No official support available
Media Portal – By far the best freeware with all the advanced options and recording options.
Apple MAC OS X:
Boxee – No live TV support
Hope this helps
