Easier Ways to Control and Play from MC
« on: May 06, 2015, 01:27:36 pm »

If you've shown MC to your family or friends and found that they were unsure how to use it, here are some solutions.

Media Center is probably best when controlled with remotes.  The most popular of these are now Gizmo (Android) and JRemote (Android and iOS) and several other remotes that operate on phones or tablets.

Media Center can be controlled from another copy of MC.  This is called "Tremote".

Media Center Remotes are hardware remotes with a Green button.  

Theater View
Hit the F11 key to jump to Theater View.  This mode can be enjoyed with a keyboard, mouse, or Media Center Remote.  You can operate it with just the four arrow keys and the enter key or OK button.

Play Doctor
Press and hold any album, artist, or track to start playing a special playlist built around your original selection.  These can be saved as "Car Radio" buttons.

Try other skins.

Try other Theater View skins.

Change the size (under the View menu) or the font (in options for Tree and View)

Simplified Interface

Audio Only view (set under the View menu)
