It's called Elisa.
Here's a little demo:
I had to try it. It is super simple to install.
It all happens in the Terminal:
- First import the GPG key
$ wget http://elisa.fluendo.com/packages/philn.asc -O - | sudo apt-key add -
- Then add the Elisa package source to your sources list
- open sources.list with your favorite text editor
$ sudo vi /etc/apt/sources.list
- add the source (this one is to Gutsy Gibbon)
$ deb http://elisa.fluendo.com/packages gutsy main
- Now all it's left to do is update apt-get and install Elisa
$ sudo apt-get updateElisa is installed by default under Applications > Sound & Video > Elisa Media Center.
$ sudo apt-get install elisa
Without any configuration Elisa saw all the Music, Pictures and Videos I have in my Home Folder. It also loaded the subtitles file corresponding to an avi file. Just great.
In the Videos folder I add a link to a video folder in another file system and I could navigate in Elisa to that location.
This is Elisa 0.3.5. I can't wait for new updates.
