Upgrades and Updates

Important There are discounted prices on upgrades to the new version of JRiver Media Center. You can download a trial version.

There are several ways to improve your MC experience:

  • If you own a Media Center 25 license, just download and install it, then restore your license if necessary.
  • Minor upgrades are free. If you own Media Center 25 (for example), it is free to update to the latest build of that version by downloading and installing. This can be done automatically by selecting an update channel under Help.
  • If you own MC on Windows and would like to purchase a Mac or Linux version, you can upgrade to a Master License that works on all three OS's.
  • If you own an earlier version of MC on any OS, you can upgrade for that OS or upgrade to a Master License. MC can use your old data and settings. It can also restore a backup of an earlier version. MC makes backups automatically.
