    1. Once a developer reaches the point in development of his feature/bugfix/rework, where it can be tested by the community, he opens a thread in this forum section
    2. There he will share information about the change itself, a changelog and provide a binary or a download link to an installer
    3. Everyone can then download the installer or the binary and test it
    4. Feedback then has to be posted inside the thread
    5. There might be more versions to test over time, depending on the test results
    6. Once the change is stable, the team will plan the integration into the master (i.e. the next release version)

    What you have to be aware of:
    1. Install builds are for testing only!
      They can be highly unstable. They can, although unlikely, cause loss of your current installation data (database, settings, fanart, all sorts of userdata)
    2. Developers will only release a new installer when they feel it is ready - asking them continuously will not speed up the process
    3. Any chit-chat in these threads will be removed as it just makes the threads unreadable.

  • 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!
