The Entertainer Project

Entertainer aims to be a simple and easy-to-use media center solution for Gnome and XFce desktop environments. Entertainer is written completely in Python using object-oriented programming paradigm. It uses GStreamer multimedia framework for multimedia playback. User Interface is implemented with Clutter UI-library, which allows sleek OpenGL animated user interfaces. Entertainer also uses other great projects like SQLite, pyIMDBb and iNotify.

The ultimate goal of the project is to create the best media center solution available for any platform. This means that Entertainer should be the best looking, most easy to use and most feature filled media center solution available. Not the easiest goal to achieve. It’s a long way, but we have a good start here!

Looks to be very promising for those looking to have a well put together media center on their Linux machine, for those who don’t want to purchase an expecive copy of Windows Media Center, or for those who don’t have Apple hardware with Frontrow.
