Editors' Review

You have more choices than ever in media center software. Moovida Media Center is a free media player that collects your movies, music, TV shows, and pictures in one easy-to-use interface. With built-in codecs, a media library, and automatic album art retrieval, Moovida's emphasis is on ease of use instead of being customizable and comprehensive. As such, it seeks to be a viable standalone alternative not only to Windows Media Center or Media Player but also VLC and the other popular free players.

Moovida's interface is based around gray tones, but its bright pastel highlights are a matter of taste, though not ours. We started by importing videos into the program's library. Movies in multiple files showed up individually, which is an unsatisfactory situation if you have a lot of copied DVDs with chapters. But the program automatically retrieved and displayed cover art, credits, and even a synopsis for several of our movies. We could access our videos on the left-side panel, which includes an entry for TV Episodes. Counters displayed how many files we had in each category; likewise with the Music tab, which accesses Podcasts, Radio, and other choices. However, when we clicked on some of the unplayed selections in the Music tab, they turned out to be video files extracted from a DVD, which Moovida had listed under Unknown Artist and Album. Worse, some of the movie's files had gone to the Movies library, while others ended up under Music. We rescanned our libraries, but to no avail. While we could easily toggle a full-screen view, the so-called Mini mode merely hides the navigation panel, not the toolbar or the player controls.

Like most media players, Moovida's playback quality is limited more by the media and your system's graphics and sound capabilities than by codecs. But its library feature is awkward and error-prone, and its interface needs attention. It's certainly worth a look, but so are many other free players.

"Finally I can watch a movie on my computer."

January 10, 2012  |  By Donald L. Butts

 |  Version: Moovida Media Center 2.1.1

Pros

It loads up automaticly and switches to full screen easly

Cons

Needs an instruction manual to show people how to run it.

Summary

I have only used it to watch movies. If the help selection worked I could probably figure out how to view my photos and do way more with it.

"Excellent organizer with control issues"

October 16, 2011  |  By ktoff

 |  Version: Moovida Media Center 2.1.1

Pros

This program does a really good job of organizing your media, downloads covers and info better than any other program I've used(I've tried plenty). The 3D part of it is really impressive, the player works well. Takes some time to figure everything out, no Help File just directs you to their FAQ on the web page. This would have gotten 5 stars except for one big problem, read Cons

Cons

This program makes itself the default program for close to 100 file extensions without asking, it even set itself as default for my Corel Draw .cdr files but can't even open them. If not for how well the program work I would have given it a lower rating for this issue.

Summary

If you don't mind it taking over defaults it's a very impressive piece of software
