    A new Extensions Installer has been included as of MP 1.1.0

    The Installer is called MPEInstaller, while the previous installer was called MPInstaller. The old installer is still included in MP 1.1.0 to install older extensions not using the new installer. Some users seem to need to set an association to enable the old installer to install .mpi files. Files for the new installer use the file extension .mpe1

    The package to build an installer using V2 is called MPEMaker. It can be used for any extension: skin, plugin, logos etc.

    For further information, please consult these Wiki pages:

    MPEInstaller - to
    • browse available extensions
    • download and install them
    • check for updates of install extensions
    • download and update them
    MPEMaker - to:
    • make an extension
    • update an extension
    • support online updates
    To create a skin extension, Bleazle has started work on: Creating an MPE1 skin installer using the MediaPortal Extension Maker V2 This guide will be added to the Wiki when complete. Please provide feedback to Bleazle.

    NOTE: There is also a new plugin to manage extensions within MediaPortal - see: Extensions Plugin for MpeInstaller

    If you have already successfully created an extension using the new MPEMaker, please help by contributing your knowledge to the Wiki. Thank you.

    The vision of the MediaPortal project is to create a free open source media centre application, which supports all advanced media centre functions, and is accessible to all Windows users.

  • Support MediaPortal!

    The team works very hard to make sure the community is running the best HTPC-software. We give away MediaPortal for free but hosting and software is not for us.
