    Windows Media Center is dead, and will not be compatible with Windows 10

    I don't particularly like VLC and preferred WMC (I know others will disagree). The link has a mention of Kodi - what do people think of this? Or indeed Plex?

    Are there any others out there?

    Long live Windows Media Centre! (That's the correct response isn't it?)

    cheers, Paul

    No real surprise there when you consider it wasn't included in Windows 8.

    And how would you have known to do that? We do have lives - most of us.

    Well I got it for free. Oh, but then I don't have a life being retired

    Anyone tried those two replacements BTW?
