Projects / MoviX2


MoviX2 is a small Linux distro that transforms your PC in a powerful multimedia box. Using the GUI version of mplayer to play audio/video files, after booting your PC with MoviX2 you will be able to play any DVD/VCD, most video/audio files (most noticeably DivX but generically any AVI, MPEG, QuickTime, WMV, ASF, MP3, and OGG), and also radio stations on the Internet if you are connected to a LAN. And since all systems will be completely loaded in RAM, you do not even need a HD to use MoviX2.
