Since Mac OS X 10.7 Apple offers FrontRow no longer as media center, many users are searching for an alternative. Although various media centers are available, no solution uses the system functions as similarly as FrontRow.

nessMediaCenter is the cost-effective alternative for FrontRow to access local media and internet content. By using existing system features such as QuickTime, the program is very small (6 MB) and requires low processing power. It is compatible with all Mac OS X systems from 10.4 "Tiger" to 10.8 "Mountain Lion". With the QuickTime extensions "Flip4Mac" and "Perian" all popular movie formats are playable.

Local media can be accessed by folders and hard drives as well as program data from Aperture, iPhoto, iTunes. Thus, the structure offered by the system – such as the picture and movie folders – is used directly instead of reorganizing the media in a new library.

The internet offer supports various providers such as BBC iPlayer, DailyMotion, German television, Hulu, movie trailers, YouTube.
In categories like movies, music videos and entertainment, more than 2500 internet videos of different providers are available.

Using nessMediaCenter, pictures, movies and PDF documents can be presented both individually and sequentially. DVDs and EyeTV movies are supported as well.

nessMediaCenter can be controlled by keyboard or Apple Remote Control. The demo version allows it to test the software for 30 minutes - thereafter nessMediaCenter must be restarted.
