Moovida Melancholy

Filed under
Software

Before developers decided to make a (questionable in my opinion) turn for the 2.x series, Moovida was both an original and powerful media center. Sporting a somewhat unique UI, great Look & Feel design and a user friendly interface, Moovida easily fit as a full blown living room media center. All you had to do was connect your PC to a TV and a proper stereo and you were in for a treat. Unfortunately, that's all gone with 2.x series, a sad Banshee clone (which is not even supported for Linux anymore... yet, they say).

Anyways, despite this article title, let's avoid getting too melancholic here. After all, Moovida 1.09 is very much alive and available in many Linux distros repositories. In case you don't know about it or have never used it, I put together a quick video showing this really cool media center in action on my computer. As usual, the video is pretty good quality, so I recommend watching it at 720p resolution and full screen mode.
