WebGuide for Windows Media Center


Microsoft has acquired WebGuide to add more functionality to it’s Media Center software. This is a good buy for Microsoft because the WebGuide software adds many great features that an HTPC enthusiast wants. They took a trick from Google and decided that sometimes it’s easier to buy a great piece of software instead of developing it from scratch. Doug Berrett, who developed WebGuide, is now part of the Media Center development team. If you haven’t used WebGuide before the feature list is below.

Live streaming TV can be viewed on any web browser
Recordings can be scheduled from any web browser
“Place-shifting” for your personal media library, including TV, music, pictures, videos and DVD’s
PocketPC and Smartphone enabled
Windows Vista ready

Installation takes only minutes
User-friendly MCE interface
Languages include Danish, Dutch, French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Norwegian, Spanish and Swedish

Live scheduling without delays

The program is free now since Microsoft bought it. So if you haven’t tried it out I would recommend doing so.
