Exploring Media Centers: Moovida

Moovida (formerly Elisa) is yet another open source media player that runs on both Windows and Linux. It ofers a decent menu, though a bit dark for my taste. It has all the features one expects from a media player: The ability to play video and audio, the ability to set up network players, etc. Moodia also comes with quite a few plugins to play content from Internet sites. These include Vimeo, YouTube, CNN news, TED talks,etc.

Unfortunately for Moovida, it exists in the same era as Boxee and XBMC. When compared with either, Moodiva pales in comparison both in features or in the number of plugins offered.

As one would expect, my verdict is: Stick with XBMC and/or Boxee.
