Chameleon MediaCenter v2.1 Now Available

in Deutsch, en Español, & en Français!

 

With the new year comes some great new features for Chameleon MediaCenter.  First up is that CMC now has multi-lingual support, and v2.1 is shipping with German, French and Spanish translations included.  This was a monumental effort, made successful in large part due to the generosity of several CMC users who meticulously performed the translations.

 

Another monumental change is that the entire Settings menu was redone for v2.1.  Options are now nicely laid out in categories.  Every single option includes on-screen help describing what each option does (yes, these are translated too!).  And the entire Settings menu now works with a mouse in addition to keyboard/remote input (we hope to extend mouse support to more areas of the GUI in the future).

 

For the first time, v2.1 supports skinning the GUI.  This is just the first step in adding skinning support, as currently only the graphics are swappable.  In the future, we plan to add support for custom colors too.  The effort to enable skinning also resulted in a 40% reduced program size.

 

Program startup speed has been dramatically enhanced in v2.1 - for many users you may see startup time cut in half, or better.

 

There's also lots of cosmetic tweaks and bug fixes that make v2.1 the best version yet of Chameleon Media Center.

 

Check out the Downloads page for more details.  For current users, CMC/MM Browser will let you auto-update to Chameleon MediaCenter the next time you run your current version.

 

 

For My Movies Users

 

Do you love collecting movies and TV shows?  Do you love My Movies by Binnerup Consult?  We sure do, and you will love it even more with Chameleon MediaCenter (formerly MM Browser), the ultimate graphical front-end created specifically for My Movies users.

 

Designed to integrate with the powerful My Movies Collection Management solution, Chameleon MediaCenter is a standalone replacement for Windows Media Center and the My Movies plug-in.

 

Microsoft retired Windows Media Center with the release of Windows 10.  Until now, you had to either soldier on with Windows 7/8.1 to maintain your graphical front-end for My Movies, or worse use sketchy and problematic WMC installs on Windows 10 - installs that Microsoft kills twice a year with their forced updates.

 

But let's be honest: Windows 7 is dead, Windows 8.1 is dead, and Windows Media Center is dead.  The landscape now resembles an episode of Game of Thrones, with all your favorites being killed off in their prime.  But like John Snow, My Movies has survived the transition to Windows 10, though perhaps not unscathed.

 

Chameleon MediaCenter solves these issues.  CMC offers a WMC experience in a standalone application, ideal for enjoying your My Movies curated video collection and your too often ignored music collection.

 

For Windows Media Center Fans

 

Chameleon MediaCenter is an easy and fun solution to using My Movies on Windows 10 (plus it works on Win 7 / 8.1 too).  Lightweight and fast, CMC will make it a joy to find your next main event for movie night.  With convenient filters for watched/unwatched titles and genres, 14 different ways to sort your titles, and powerful real-time searches by movie title or actor/crew names, you will quickly find exactly the flick you are looking for in that massive movie collection.

 

Prefer to watch a TV show?  Chameleon MediaCenter let's your browse your collection of TV shows and episodes, and supports playback for individual episodes, even for discs that are still in ISO format.

 

After you select your movie or show to watch, Chameleon MediaCenter can automatically mount movies from your online collection and launch PowerDVD, DVDFab Player, MPC, VLC or Win10 Movies & TV to play them.  CMC can also autoplay inserted discs, allowing you to enjoy your offline collection and rentals.

 

Unlike competing solutions, you won't have to futz around with play script files to get your media playing  with your favorite DVD/Blu-ray player - we figure this all out for you and program it right into Chameleon MediaCenter.

 

For Music Lovers

 

Chameleon MediaCenter is more than just a replacement for the previous My Movies Windows Media Center based solution.  CMC includes a Music Library with world-class audio playback provided by the Un4seen BASS Audio Library.  The CMC Music Library imitates the WMC Music Library, so you'll be right at home in no time enjoying your prized music collection.

 

Free for Small Collections, Free to Try for Large Collections

 

Chameleon MediaCenter is free to use for collections up to 101 titles.  And for the price of a single Blu-ray movie, you can use CMC to tame a monster movie & music collection of any size.

 

There's just too much functionality to list it all on this page.  You can learn more by checking out the Features page.  Or better yet, go ahead and download Chameleon MediaCenter and give it a whirl.
