Note from the Team admins
Hi Ubuntu MediaCenter members,
As you probably noticed, the UMC project has been on low-profile for several months. Work has been stopped and Fluendo doesn't currently have the resources to continue on this community effort
So unless someone raises the hand to take over the UMC project, we are going to close this mailing list and the UMC/Launchpad stuff.
In the meantime Elisa became Moovida few months ago, the UI has been updated to give a more profesional end-user experience. We encourage you all to try Moovida. We really hope to have sometime in the future a better integration with Ubuntu in the spirit of UMC
Thanks to you all for your efforts on this project!
This Team works on making the Ubuntu Media Center dream come true.
For a good definition of a Media Center, have a look at Wikipedia.
The main tasks of this Team are:
- Federate all Ubuntu and upstream forces interested in the subject and create a Development Community.
- Sum up the state of media center artwork and select a base software.
Specify the functions and the look & feel of the Ubuntu Media Center.
- Create the needed resources (graphical and textual components) and plugins.
- Package and maintain everything needed for an Ubuntu Media Center.
- Create a specific distribution for UMC installation.
- Maintain and improve the results.
- Work closely with upstreams (Elisa, Debian, LIRC, etc.).
The Ubuntu Media Center will be both suited for desktop usage and operation as a dedicated appliance.
The base software that will be used is Elisa.
We have set up a temporary mailing list for team usage, while waiting for the official firstname.lastname@example.org ones. Subscribe here.
