Guys I don't think this should be a big concern. When someone sells Media Portal for 99cents who cares? Its obvious that they are not out to make some massive profit out of this and are trying to exploit the project. There are many people out there who otherwise wouldn't ever know about Media Portal or would be in a situation where they were unable to download it, my point is that there is a legitimate market out there and I don't think these people are hurting the project. The ones that really pissed me off where the people selling it it for like $50 a pop and everyone thought they were getting Windows MCE, they were the ones we needed to stop and these people by selling it for 99c have done exactly that.

    Yeh as was said in the other threads, only time its worth pursuiting is when they are obviously making a quick buck. $1 + $6 postage is hardly anything and thats considered a reasonable media fee.

    I think it's great! If I hadnt seen the listing, I never would have discovered the program. Some people don't / can't go thru the hassle of figuring out what to download to put together one of these systems. If someone takes the time to d/l everything, explains how to install and what or what not to install, puts it all on a shiny cd/dvd, and delivers it, god bless em for asking a buck for that. Me, I just finished getting all the sources, going to install my tuner card in a fresh box, and start playing!

    ebay sellers

    yeh i agree i would never have found the software if it weren't for ebay, except i noticed it said open source so googled it and here i am enjoying my media centre :) if you check there's an ebay seller who only sells free software so i think she/he is probobly trying to make money to be fair.

    I sent the following message to everyone who has already bid on the auction! *evil grin*



    Hi there,

    Just wanted to let you know that the item you are bidding on //New For Windows XP Media Portal Multi-Media Center 2005// is actually a FREE download off the Internet.

    Go to www.team-mediaportal.com to download the latest version!!

    Retract your bid if you can, or tell the seller you are no longer interested in purchasing FREE software!! :)

    I upgraded my Mediaportal PC (Server and Client) to Windows 11 to solve some driver issues as it was new hardware. Then I discovered that my other two Mediaportal Client PCs running Windows 10 would no longer work. I now have them both working and as I could not find any discussions on similar problems, I thought I would just post my...

    MP1 MP2 recording video DE
    VLC has a browser add-on that allows you to start a video selected in your browser in VLC, you then can use its record button. Doesn't always work though, my guess is it won't on protected vids but it is the only thing I have found other than the excellent download capability of Online Videos when available.

    Yes, that’s planned. The new installer (completely reworked with new GUI) is basically ready, but the alternative TV plugins are not fully finalized. After that you’ll be able to select a TV engine within the installer :)

    MP1 MP2 Watched indicator DE
    Hi, That is unfortunately not possible. I fear you have to mark them as watched manually. Maybe there is also a change with an data base editor (SQLite Editor), but it will be not easy and I can’t provide a manual, because I didn’t try yet.
