Creating a multimedia center with Mpeg Menu System V2
MENUS AND CHOICES
You’ll forget you’re even working with a computer when you browse for your favorite videos, pictures, and audio files with Mpeg Menu System.
If you have an old, unused computer lying around your cellar or attic, you can convert it into a multimedia center with the Mpeg Menu System V2  (MMSV2). MMSV2 lets you tune in to your favorite Internet radio station, listen to MP3s and audio CDs, run movies from your hard disk, and view images of your latest vacation, all without a special player on the desktop. MMSV2 has its own menu system that gives you direct access to multimedia functions. The underlying Linux system can use the network to communicate and thus access servers, or it can act as a server itself. A simple infrared remote control is all you need to control the system. And if your multimedia machine is quiet enough, you can even replace the DVD player, radio, and MP3 player in your living room.
