    Attached to this news you will find the Pre2 Release version of MediaPortal 2.1.

    Since we published the MediaPortal 2.1 Pre Release in late December, we fixed many issues and further improved the product to provide the best possible experience to the users.

    While MediaPortal 2 is now a fully stable product, some of the issues that the community reported require further work. Because of this the MP2 team decided to publish another Pre release version to allow the community to benefit from all the bug fixes and improvements that we added since the beginning of the year.

    Highlights of this release
    Besides numerous bug fixes, we have included the following major improvements:

    • New WMC skin
      Coming from WMC, because not able to use it anymore with Windows 10, but looking for the same lean usability? The new WMC skin will offer the full look and feel, that you are used to and offer a lot of additional opportunities making it even better.

      Default theme

      Dark theme

    • New BlueVision skin themes
      The BlueVision skin has been revamped and new themes have been added: Windows10, Titanium Extended and Grey allow to adjust the look of MediaPortal to your personal preference.


      Titanium Extended

    • Completely reworked media management
      All kind of media (movie, series, audio, videos, etc.) will now be automatically scraped. Respective online information (descriptions, covers, posters, fanart, artists, etc.) is downloaded and added to the central database. Users can define which online sources to use and what kind of data to download. Local fanarts and descriptions are also supported.

    • Enhanced movie and series management
      Movies can now be shown filtered by collections (aka movie sets)

      Now there is also an indicator for the watched percentage of movies and their collections as well as for series and seasons.
      Several new features have been added. You can now enjoy season FanArt and benefit from a broad variety of metadata to filter and sort on.

    • Online Videos
      Added support for DRM-protected content like Amazon Prime

    • Skin
      All: Configurable Fanart transparency/visibility level
      WMC: Added age certification logos
    • Settings
      Individual share watcher settings for each media source
      Configurable Splitter settings
      Logging level change now acting on both client and server
    Full list of changes
    The complete list of changes since the release of Spring '16 last year is very long and we will only list changes since MediaPortal 2.1 Pre Release here. Please also refer to the Pre Release changelog for a complete overview of what has changed since Spring '16.
