Freevo [options]


Freevo is an open-source home theatre PC platform based on Linux and a number of open-source audio/video tools, such as MPlayer and Xine. Freevo can be used both for a standalone PVR computer with a TV+remote, as well as on a regular desktop computer using the monitor, mouse and keyboard.
