You can playback music, images, video, CD, DVD, and TV. The files you play can be on your local computer, external media, or a network. You can even playback files remotely with Library Server, a component of Media Center-listen to the music on your home computer from work. Or control the living room's playback via the web from your laptop in the kitchen with WebRemote.
One of the most important features is the Playing Now screen. Please read that section before going on to other Playback information.
