I need recommendation for my HTPC. I checked a lot of HTPC forums, and still not sure about what Interface, plugin, codec combination to install.
This is what I need from HTPC:
- 10foot UI
- video formats: h264 (mkv), xvid
- external subtitles
- audio formats: flac & ape
- metadata: Would like to recognize tv-show files and to group them by series and seasons (almost all of them are scene releases), with all according metadata. Audio metadata is also a plus.
I would like answer to be set of Interface, plugins and codecs (and anything else is needed) You recommend me to install. Also, anything else you think is important is more than welcome.
