Elisa Media Center

Today I was talking with a friend of mine about Media Centers. A little by change I found a great Open Source solution.

It’s called Elisa.

Here’s a little demo:


I had to try it. It is super simple to install.

It all happens in the Terminal:

wget http://elisa.fluendo.com/packages/philn.asc -O - | sudo apt-key add -
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install elisa

Elisa is installed by default under Applications > Sound & Video > Elisa Media Center.

Without any configuration Elisa saw all the Music, Pictures and Videos I have in my Home Folder. It also loaded the subtitles file corresponding to an avi file. Just great.

In the Videos folder I add a link to a video folder in another file system and I could navigate in Elisa to that location.

This is Elisa 0.3.5. I can’t wait for new updates.
