Ubuntu should integrate a powerful fully integrated Media Center.
One of the crucial stakes of future desktop PC is its ability to bring the convergence for all media available at home : TV, movies, music and pictures, but also Radio, News (RSS...), Video On Demand, Music on Demand... And all of this available with a "Powered by Ubuntu" remote control.
This is an essential issue if Ubuntu wants to be a popular OS.
The use of a "Powered by Ubuntu" remote control is prerequired for a good media center.
- TV integration
The media center should be able to display TV and TV guide, allows to plan recordings, manage time-shiffting...
- Movie catalogue
Explore movie catalogue, watch movie, get movies information from the net...
The implementation can use existing projects (Freevo, MythTV...) but the goal should be to give an desktop integrated software, easy to install and use.
