Freevo is a Linux application that turns a PC with a TV capture card and/or TV-out into a standalone multimedia jukebox/VCR/PVR/HTPC/DVR/set top box. It uses MPlayer to play and record audio+video. It is optimized for use with a TV+remote. There is a new binary pre-release (1.3.2-pre1) available on SourceForge.net's download page. It fixes a number of bugs in the 1.3.1 release, e.g. CD/DVD autodetection, new XMLTV format, MP3 time, etc.
The binary release includes all external libraries (e.g. SDL) and applications (e.g. MPlayer). The current version is useful for watching/recording TV, AVIs, DVDs, playing MP3/OGG, viewing images.
