Long-term readers will know that I still miss Microsoft’s Windows Media Center. Its 10-foot interface is what got me into having a PC at the heart of the home, and while Microsoft may have abandoned the platform the UI is returning.

Emby has long been an alternative media center server for PC, Mac and Linux with a range of clients, and the really good news is that the Windows Media Center UI that we know and love is returning!

The Emby team are releasing a beta of the Windows Media Center UI version of Emby September 1st and you can watch a teaser video to give you an idea of how good it looks.
