Up and Running
This topic is intended to give intermediate users more features to explore. Once you've got MC installed and running well, be sure to try a few of these. The wiki has more on each.
Theater View -- Our "ten foot mode" for viewing MC on a TV across the room. Now you're in HTPC territory.
Remotes -- Whether you use a hardware remote like the Media Center Remote we sell or a software remote for use on another device, you will quickly find it an indispensable tool.
Gizmo -- Our remote for android. You can use it as a remote or you can use it to stream from MC to your phone. For iOS devices and anything else that has a browser, try WebGizmo. It looks and acts like Gizmo but runs in a browser.
Servers -- JRiver has the most sophisticated set of servers available. They allow you to easily enjoy your media in other locations. Set up a single server at home and play content on your other PC or phones -- at home or on the go.
Zones -- JRiver supports playback to several locations at once. You can play audio or video in each location.
Customizing Views -- MC Beta Team member marko wrote a fantastic tutorial.
Library Tools -- MC can fill your tags from filenames or vice versa. It can move files to directories or rename them based on their tags. And much more.
