    The playing movie is stuttering while InfoService updates. What can i do?
    Show Spoiler

    This was a bug in the version 1.5 of InfoService. For now it should be fixed. If you have still problems you have you MediaPortal configuration folder on a network drive, you can change the cache folder of InfoService to a local drive and see if it works then. Please refer to this article to change the cache folder of InfoService.

    How can i read a news feed?
    Show Spoiler

    To read the whole news of a feed, you will need a separate webbrowser plugin. The older WebBrowser plugin (discontinued) and the newer GeckoBrowser are supported. Also you can use other properties for other webbrowser plugins (Attention: They have to use the same interface to InfoService like the GeckoBrowser or the WebBrowser plugin, so it's up to the plugin developer of the webbrowser plugin if he wants to support InfoService).

  • About The Project

    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.

    In reaching this goal we are working every day to make sure our software is one of the best.


  • 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.

    Care to support our work with a few bucks? We'd really appreciate it!
